The hostel is pretty easy to find, several minutes walk from the metro station. Staffs are really friendly and helpful, plus the free map is awesome!!


A bit far from the main train station but it's a not hard to find. Breakfast is standard hostel fare but it's always nice when they offer it. The showers weren't the warmest but were clean and weren't too cramped. The bar has a good selection of Belgian beers, though it's not like you're bereft of choices of great bars in Brussels. Depending on how adverse you are to walking/taking public transport, I'd recommend this place.


Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I appreciated receiving maps and recommendations on things to do in the city. The cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms were below average but was well worth it for the price. This was a great place to stay in order to get to see Brussels. Only a short walk away from Grand Place and all the best spots in Brussels.

Really nice hostel, breakfast was great and rooms were spacious. Staff were very nice and trilingual, kitchen was big and very well stocked with all cooking needs. Will be returning!


noise at night is disturbing me to sleep at night.... especially music from bar. I think it should be closed or reduce music volume after 22 and, shower booth,,,, no curtain or anything else. My new clothes always get wet.


Not a bad place and location. Friendly staff cheap breakfast of course but that's expected.
