Cheap hostel, staff are friendly and helpful. Only problems are no lockers in the dorm i stayed in, lack of plugs to charge your phone...3 in a 6 person dorm. Also the wifi only works in certain places in the building. There are lockers you can use downstairs. The beers are very cheap at the bar. And a twenty minute walk to Grand Place in Brussels. Not a bad hostel but room for improvement

It was average, nothing special. The kitchen had a few things to cook with, but not very well equipped. There was a band playing the night we stayed, which helped to make the atmosphere fun. The location was good, but don't expect anything great from the breakfast, it was very basic.

A very mediocre hostel. Just clean enough to spend a night or 2. No atmosphere whatsoever despite an on-site bar with a huge beer selection.

It was not very clean. The chairs in the lobby were broken and everything looked quite old and used. The wifi only works in the lobby, no wifi in the room. The shower water was extremely hot, like boiling, and the temperature not ajustable. I couldn't take a proper shower, I literally burned myself. The breakfast is ok, but the coffe and juices are quite bad.

The building where the dorm is located has seen better days, but beds were comfortable and the staff helpful and nice. Location is also good, close to the center and only a 15min walk from the central railway station. Breakfast is included in the price and offers a decent selection of cheese, salam, cereals and other goodies. Thumbs up!

The wifi only works in the lobby, not in the rooms or the kitchen or even the garden right outside the lobby. Some rooms are down the street. The staff are also very offputting; they seem annoyed when you have a question or need to check-in. They weren't even there when I checked out, so I had to wait several minutes for someone to show up. There are a lot of groups (field trips?) that stay here, it makes for an odd atmosphere in the morning. At night, it's very social and like a normal hostel.

The place was nice and my room was on the ground floor looking at the courtyard. However there were a lot of religious type meetings that seemed to take place in the courtyard and it was a little strange. Also I was a short walk from the train station but directly through a brothel neighborhood. Overall it was clean and a good location to walk to the main city center attractions.

The staff is great. Marcello came out with us one night and showed us around which was greatly appreciated. Showers have no curtains and are not the cleanest. Breakfast is okay and is included in your fee. The dorms have sinks in them which are useful, but the beds are nothing special. The vibe is a little funky. (Kids running around, funky music playing, variety of people visiting for different purposes). There is a bar with many great beers, which entitles people to drink beer and hang out.

Good location and very helpful staff! Nice atmosphere to hang out in the lounge with wifi, beer and terrific music. Garbage can in room was not cleaned from the previous guest. 1 euro per towel. Simple breakfast was well stocked. Would stay again.
