I would call this a hotel rather than a hostel. It was well worth it's nightly cost, and was clean and comfortable. There was daily room cleaning which was unexpected, and it was in a reasonably convenient location to the centre

Really kind staff, no computers to use but appreciated the printing available through emailing the hostel, liked the clean and modern rooms.


Loved our room! Perfect for a couple. I wish there would have been a bit more pillows though.

Amazing large room with modern ensure. If we came back to Brussels we would stay here again, good value for money. Walking distance to both city centre and main train station. The activity on the street did NOT bother us at all, I always felt safe and also especially that my room is safe and secure. Staff were very friendly and most importantly staffed 24 hours which was handy when we needed to check out at an odd time. Would highly recommend


The theatre hotel had some great positives, these included very clean and modern bedrooms. It's ideally located close to one of the main stations Brussels Noord and about a 10-15 minute walk for the centre (grand place). It's also relatively cheep for Brussels. However the wider neighbourhood is a bit dodgey and the street itself seems to be epicentre for prostitutes in Brussels. The women seem fine, they don't hassle you. However it's a bit off putting and can be intimidating at first.


Although the hostel had good links to transport. the area was not pleasant. A large amount of prostitutes where in the street directly outside the hostel and often satin the door way to the hostel.


Room is basic but cery clean with comfy bed and nice shower. Location is good for walking to the centre.


This hostel is great value for money, it is much more like a hotel. The room was large and modern and the bathroom just as nice. If I was to return I would defiantly stay here again. As last reviews has mentioned the area is a bit funny but the people didn't bother us and once inside the hostel it is quiet and comfortable, would defiantly recommend


Although not centrally located we picked this hotel for easy access to the airport. It is not far from a metro stop so there was good transportation to central Brussels, as well as the airport. Also it is walking distance to the St. Catherine's area with nice restaurants. There was some street noise as well as noise from some neighboring homes the first night we were there but relatively quiet the second and last night of our stay.


great place but a 15 minute walk to down town
