    Fabulous place. when I enter, they host a free concert. There is a bar, and price is super reasonable, far cheaper than a bar you can find nearby. there are many backpackers here. I stay short, but still meet many good people. The entire hostel is massive, many rooms. The breakfast is good, eggs, meat, different drinks, yougurt. location is good.

    Such a lovely hostel! A 20 minute walk walk away from the Grand Place and the Palace. The staff are so helpful and chatty and really make you feel welcome. The rooms are clean and all have at least en-suite showers, some have en-suite toilets as well. The breakfast is amazing, a full spread of cereal, cheese, meat, eggs, bread etc. I would really recommend this hostel for anyone visiting Brussels!

    Very nice facilities. Located in a more quiet part of the city, but easily walkable to anywhere you'd like to go. Overall pretty clean, doesn't seem like the blankets are washed which is concerning.

    The place is very clean overall and tidy at all times but I felt like the toilet in our room wasn’t being cleaned properly. I noticed stains in the sink on the second day and they were not cleaned properly until the 5th day. They clean the rooms everyday before 3pm but the bad smell in the toilet was never gone. The breakfast is very good for the price and it has a lot of variety.

    Nice hostel in a good location, near metro stations and an easy walk to the city centre. We had a twin room which was spacious with a decent bathroom. Drinks in the bar were very reasonably priced.

    I knew this before I booked so I was okay with it but If you’re looking for a sociable hostel this is not the one, there is no place to lounge around and meet people. However I’m pretty sure all hostels In Brussels are like that. Apart from that, it was super clean and secure. Fairly close to the centre of town. I got back to the hostel before it got too late and therefore didn’t experience any catcalling. Was aware of a group of people on the corner of the hostels street that looked a bit off

    Nice hostel that seems a bit old but is well maintained. Lack of sockets near beds did suck tho and the lack of cold shower wasnt too fun.

    Location is great, there are many charming cafés and restaurants close to the hostel. My private room was nice too, it was very quiet. However, the room was extremely dirty, liquids spilled and then dried on the floor, hair and nail pieces everywhere, it seemed like no one had cleaned that room for weeks.
