Impersonal service, too noisy, bad breakfast
This hostel was great. The staff, the breakfast and the value for money makes them stand out the rest. The location besides the Vondelpark is amazing; we enjoyed of beautiful snowing mornings and walking thru the park to go in and out the hostel was a very nice experience. This hostel is not small, so don't expect to have a few people walking around it; so sometimes could be crowded and a little noisy, but no big deal with that. I strongly recommend this place to anyone who could be interested.
Given the previous reviews I was expecting a lot more from the Palmers. But the reality is that the place is very bad run, not clean, some staff members are rude and the facilities are not in optimal condition. There was -2C and a door couldn't been closed allowing the chill coming into the room. We notified of this to the staff 3 times and none did anything. The Breakfast was horrible, only carbs and a horrible coffee in a tiny room for so many guests. Internet came in and out pretty often
This hostel is very nice as it is the city itself. One major concern was the stairs as they are kinda dangerous due to the limited space to walk around. The bar and the restaurant are very nice and you definitely feel into the Brugge mood all the time. Location is good as Brugge doesn’t require to walk long distances. Internet was 100% available at the lobby, bar and restaurant which makes it very easy to access. Bathrooms are small but clean. Staff was helpful but not over the expectations.
I really like the hostel, but there are several things that could be clearly advertised: The internet is not free, they give you a free trial of 60 mins and then you have to pay for it. Even those 60 mins the connection was poor to nothing. The bar staff is way too slow and they practically don’t speak English even though they say they do. In some cases they get your never delivered the food or drinks that was already ordered, I mean 45 mins is enough to get your food after being ordered
