    I really liked the Jacques Brel Youth Hostel. Although the location felt a bit unsafe when returning to the hostel at night, there was no reason to worry, really! I appreciated the breakfast: the regular coffee from the machine was barely drinkable but the cappuccino was good! One thing I really didn't like was that it was hot in the rooms and also in the bathrooms and toilets and when I mentioned it to the staff, they told me to adjust it myself. So not eco-friendly in that sense…

    We booked a private room and we got to the room and there was a man sleeping in there. The hostel was fully booked, so Alex promptly offered us two options: either to give us back our money for the night and host us in one of their meeting rooms, or to have us hosted in a partner hostel not too far away. We took the first option and it ended up being quite pleasant. Even with the problems, the staff solved in the best and more sympathetic way possible. Cozy place, nice breakfast, good showers.

    Feels like a converted university dorm or hospital or something similar. Quite institutional. But, a good value. Good breakfast, fair room price. I think that the crowd here can be older as this is one of the hostels in Brussels that does NOT have an age limit. Definitely some older travelers here. But, still acceptable.

    Typical youth hostel. It is what I expected. Good: very well organized, quite a lot of Belgian beers in the bar Bad: the quilt and the bathroom (we had a four beds room with private bathroom) smelled quite bad, when we arrived we had to open the window for a while and the weird smell still remained

    We had booked twin ensuite.The bathroom/toilet had very bad smell. We informed at the reception, since we were heading out they promised that by the time we are back it will be addressed.We returned at 10PM and the issue wasn't resolved and the main reception was closed. They have a temporary reception at the bar. When we informed them about the whole situation, they said that can't do anything.We got change of room next day but had to wait till 3PM for it to be cleaned and ready. Inconvenience.
