    I thought this hostel was great! Staff were friendly and helpful. My friend and I had a private twin room that was very clean. The hostel is only about a 15-20min walk to most of the main attractions and has metros and two major train stations close by.

    Really great location. My friend and I enjoyed our stay here and it was totally worth it. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are clean and well kept. The staff if really friendly and easy to work with. When we checked out, they let us leave our bags there so we can hang out some more. I would definitely recommend this place.

    A really nice hostel. We sleeped in a two person room, save it was nicer than most of the hotels we stayed at during our trip. The staff was really friendly and the breakfast was small, but had everything a backpacker need to get a good start of the day! I will definitely book this hostel next time I am visiting Brussels. Note that it is really close to Brussel Nord Station AND the city center!

    This is a great place to stay for a few days in Brussels. The staff are friendly and helpful. The double room I used was large as was the bathroom/ wet room. It is set 15 minutes walk from the Grand Place. But the main attraction for me was the courtyard, where you can relax in the open air.

    Pros: Location wise it’s about 15 minute walk from the city centre - so not too bad. The breakfast is pretty good with a variety of items which cater to all. The rooms was decent (we had our own private twin room which was quite spacious and clean). Cons: the staff were rude and not helpful, the bar (which was one reason I booked it) wasn’t at all happening (or even seemed to be a thing?), there’s no aircon/fans woke up in a pile of sweat - even with the windows open haha.

    THIS IS NOT A YOUTH HOSTEL! I had two old men in my room which was fine but just was not what I was expecting. There was also black mold in my bathroom and when I asked them to address it there response was to open the window to the main room. I would not recommend this place unless you a just needing to stay the night.
