I really loved my stay at Indraprastha Home Stay. The staff were so welcoming, the location is fantastic and the free breakfast is delicious and fresh. There is also an adorable and well behaved little dog there who was a delightful little bonus. Highly recommended!
Snuffel was a lot of fun to stay in. It may not be the most flashy of hostels but it's close to the main square, easy to find and there is a great atmosphere. The wifi was good and the kitchen was modest but useful. The atmosphere was very friendly but the music from the bar downstairs can really prevent you from sleep.
The location of this hostel is absolutely brilliant - you can't get better! However, there is no reception desk that we saw in our entire stay and a few other patrons we encountered were confused by this and the check in at another hostel. Be sure to read where that is before you arrive! The hostel facilities are new, clean, spacious and enjoyable and I loved my stay in very central Brussels!
Arty Paris was further away than I expected, but all in all not too bad. The staff were friendly/ cheerful although some night staff were not helpful when we had some issues with the wifi. Our devices would drop out constantly and take a long time to load. There are some free computers which were handy, although one was broken and the wait time for one would be up to an hour. The breakfast is average while the room we stayed in was a bit cramped (4 female dorm). The hostel had a nice vibe!
Wonderful rooms, staff, location and hostel. The area is lovely and central, wifi is good and well accessible from rooms (first floor) and the staff are friendly, helpful and experienced. Easy access to tube stations and plenty of eateries in the surrounding streets. A great experience!
