Nice and characteristic hostel. The bar inside is very welcoming, the music and the atmosphere are excellent. It's expensive like all the other Brussels hostels, so this is not really an issue of this hostel. The breakfast is remarkable, many things to choose, the coffee is ok.


Sadly I didn't like Brussels at all. Almost got mugged as I walking back to the hostel at 7:30 at night with a friend. Breakfast was average but bed linens sucked. I think you could find better, but Brussels could be a day trip.


Bathroom is out in the courtyard.


I wanted more concents for 6 people. You can walk from North Station but you will walk through not good place, so be careful. Staffs were very nice.People staying there was also nice. Morning was poor. But I liked this hostel.


The staff were really fun and helpful all throughout my stay. The place was also really clean and the 6 bed girls dorm I was in was great! Breakfast was lovely and we definitely had enough to eat (would have liked some fruit though!) and overall this was a great hostel with easy access by tram to the city centre.

Good breakfast. Nice place to eat outside. Beers available at the bar. The water isn't warm at all in the shower and there's a little lack of cleanliness in the washroom. No locker in the room but some available to drop your luggage when you leave in the afternoon.


Stayed here for three nights. Very nice place. The room is clean but a little lacking at the shower as it has no light. However, other facilities are good, kitchen, washing machine, cafe and the staffs are very professionals.
