Great place with good facilities but it's pretty far from everything if you are wanting to walk everywhere.

Brussels Hostel Grand Place, Brussels, Belgium

15th Aug 2014

The location to this hostel is great it's right in the middle of everything. And right beside the grand palace. I will say it was inconvient to have no reception in the hostel. You had to go to the other hostel to ask questions and directions and for luggage storage. That. Being said, it would not stop me from coming back here. I would stay here again if I came back to Brussels

I personally didn't like staying here. If your looking for a place to meet fellow travellers this place isn't it. It was filled with school groups and family's. Didn't see very many people in the 20s range. Mostly 12-15 year olds. Personally I had a bad experience because the blonde at the front desk was the rudest woman I have ever met. I would look for anywhere else.

The one thing I'll say is I thought this was the city backpackers chain which it was not. So I was expecting something much different. Wifi only worked in a tiny tiny room and only having certain hours for reception was a huge pain because half the time in those hours there was no one there.

This hostel was like a hotel it was amazing. It's huge and has lots of space, kitchen and the rooms were great. Only thing for improvement some of the guys from the front desk, when you would ask a question instead of answering a question they would point out how you could have answered the question yourself. By pointing it out on the wall. I didn't understand why they couldn't just answer the question then show them where to get more info later.

This hostel made me realize why most hostels don't allow group bookings. In a 10 bed room were two of us and 8 other people that were together. Let's just say we got absolutely no sleep. That was a personal reason my time at this hostel wasn't great. Also wifi is only available at the bar which turns into a huge party at night. Not ideal for wanting to get on my computer at night. I feel it's almost a requirement that wifi should be available in rooms. Definitely a huge party hostel.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback. Our staff are here 24/7 and are always available to help our guests get the most out of their stay. In a situation where roommates are being noisy such as the one you have described, we would deal with it as soon as we found out. Even with regular patrols we cant be everywhere all the time. Its important to us that all our guests get a good nights sleep and have a great experience when they choose to stay at St Christopher's.

This hostel was o.k. There's not to much wrong with it. I just found it to be a party hostel. One thing that was annoying was we were told we could not bring our own alcohol into the hostel to drink we had to drink from their bar. That pretty much stopped us from being able to drink and the prices at the bar weren't that great. Not very budget friendly. Rooms were pretty dirty.

I would definitely come back. It had a cool vibe and was really close to everything. I love when hostels arrange things for you to do at night at the hostel. The meatball experience was really fun. You get to cook Swedish meatballs get a three course meal drinks and meet people from the hostel. Also very clean. Only problem I had was the small number of bathrooms for so many people. But that wouldn't stop me from coming back. And you get free pasta to cook.

The hostel was okay. It had lockers available. Was about a 35 minute walk to the downtown area but we did it everyday and have no complaints. Room was huge with a massive table in the middle. And a good kitchen area but wifi only worked in one area of a really large building.

BEDBUGS. Our bed had bed bugs. We went downstairs to inform the woman there and she started laughing. They wouldn't let the one other girl in our room move. Their internet wasn't working and again we were laughed at and never told weather or not it would be fixed just ignored. Man in the morning kept insisting an Internet cafe was around the corner and telling us we were wrong that it wasn't there, when the one he was talking to we found 30 minutes away. Very poor. Stay at pella inn.

This hostel made Naples. Giovanni tells you all about Naples stuff you would never expect you'd be seeing there. It ended up being my favorite city in Italy. Only issue was I wanted more pasta. Giovanni makes pasta for you and it's amazing. I'm going to be back here as soon as I can. Talking to other people who went to Naples , you should only go if you stay here. Also in a non dodgy area. We loved it!

If your looking to save money it's a good spot. I found this place covered in bugs and an hour away from the attractions. Not a good place to meet people but okay if your going in a big group. Our room had a massive glass door so the lights from the hall were so bright all night. No difference between the lights being on or off. I probably would look somewhere else before I would go back.

Hello B. Thanks for your review! We appreciate your nice and positive words, even if 63% is considered a low rating. REALLY REALLY sorry for those pillows! Now we understand why some travellers bring their own pillows with them! ;-)

What made this hostel awful for me was the workers. I'd walk up to the bar and say is this where we order food and the bartender would say yes and walk and stand somewhere else and ignore us. We asked the front desk if they could recommend an affordable dinner place nearby and they said walk outside and find a restaurant. Not really appreciate. The ferry you'd have to pay for for almost anywhere you stay in Venice. But the beds here were amazing and comfortable.

The good part about the hostel was that it was close to everything. Within walking distance. Also the dinner was buffet and it was amazing. Breakfast goes until whenever you want which was nice. The staff were relaxed and friendly except for the the girl that was there when we were checking out with brown hair. She was really rude and just put a damper on what would have been a great experience.

I loved the beds here they are big and have curtains. The bathrooms were right in front of our bed in the room so all night we were being woken up by the lights. The place was clean and had a great Atmosphere. Only problem I had was that some of the staff had no idea about things they were recommending. They told us to do the walking tour but when we asked about what we would see they had no idea and told us to read the brochure. It happened a couple times to us.

The hostel was okay and had a Decent location. About 10 minutes to the main centre. Everything was pretty clean. Best part though was the tapas tour. 10 euros and you get to go to a really cool tapas bar for all you can eat tapas and a huge sangria. Worth the money by far. Our tour guide Pablo was great and funny and kind of looked like the Spanish version of wolowitiz from the Big Bang theory.

This was so nice it had a good location and amazing rooms. They do a dinner every night for nine euro and it was cooked for us a four course meal and it was amazing. Came with wine aswell. Breakfast had pancakes which was amazing. We were told there was a no noise policy though. So by 1030 we were being yelled at for talking in the common area. Other then that is was great

Location was okay. It was about 15 minutes to the main part of the city. Beds were gross mine had all kinds of metal pieces in duvet and my friend found ear plugs under her pillow with hair when we first arrived so we knew the beds weren't cleaned. Floor in our bathroom was caving in and was broken in most parts. It was okay but I would probably look for somewhere else before I came back here.
