Enjoyable stay at hostel Van Gogh. There was a locker room with swipe card entry to keep our valuables. Very good free breakfast. 4 person room was average-sized. However, only one toilet on each floor and the hostel is a good walk from the city centre.


Cleaning is not good, especially the bathrooms. But the breakfast is pretty good.

The receptionist was really friendly and gave us all the information we needed. The hostel is ok. The bar inside the hostel is very good with a lot of beer options and also they have a living room with parties and bands. It is 20 min walking to go to the pubs on city centre, and there is also a metro.


I was unimpressed with this hostel, it didn't quite live up to the hype. The shower was hardly working, light bulbs in the washroom were burnt out, outlets didn't work in the room, wifi only worked in the lobby, and the free breakfast was pretty pathetic. Perhaps at one time it was a nice place but it's now dated. Good location though.


Seemed nice I was only passing through though. Staff were friendly and helpful.

the staff is a very nice person. is a good place.


Overall a good stay. Further from restaurants/attractions than we expected by looking at the map and not knowing brussells before arriving- but had a nice social atmosphere at night and a good kitchen area.


This place was great.
