Hostelworld says

Decked out in comic book theme throughout, this is one of the coolest hostels you're likely to see. And like all good Meininger hostels, its location is hard to beat. It's just 15 minutes from Grand Place and 300m from the Porte de Flandre, so it's not hard to explore the city's sights and bars from this spot. The hostel doesn't hold back on features either. The bar is the perfect place to meet fellow travellers or you can bond over games of pool or on the Wii. What's more, it's green as can be, being completely CO2 neutral.

Built in an old brewery, MEININGER Brussels City Center has a warehouse vibe with a twist. Look closer and you'll see graffiti everywhere, from tiny figures sketched on tables and floors to large comic-inspired murals on the walls. Our fun-loving design, along with our awesome social spaces, might explain why we've nailed the top spot as the Hoscars' Most Popular Hostels in Brussels every year since 2015. Update your travel diary over a drink in our lively bar, relax on our outdoor terrace, or get into some pool in our games room.


You'll find us on the Canal de Charleroi, 300 metres from Porte de Flandre station and a 40-minute journey by train to Brussels Airport. Ask staff at the 24-hour reception for recommendations on the best sights to see, and they'll also give you the lowdown on the tours from our hostel. They can point you in the direction of the Grand Place, Brussels' central square, just a 15-minute walk away.

Rooms and Dorms

When you've checked in, grab your key card and head up to your room using the lift (because who likes lugging luggage up several flights?). We've got single, double and multi-bed spaces or dorms with free bedding and security lockers for a fee. Each room has its own bathroom and TV for morning-after lazing. If you go for a private room you'll get towels to rent too – so no need to pack one.

Extras and activities

We have a filling breakfast every morning for a small fee, or you can use the fully equipped kitchen – with a stove, microwave oven and kitchen utensils – to make yourself a meal. Snacks and drinks are available in the vending machines and at reception if you don't feel like cooking. You'll also find computers in the lobby if you're travelling without your tablet or laptop. Otherwise, Wi-Fi's free throughout the hostel.

    This is a great hostel. The staff are friendly and helpful. The facilities are great. The bar is open til 1am. Breakfast is really good. Everything is clean and well done. It’s close to transport (metro and tram). It’s easy to get to from Gare du Midi. Everything is good!

    An almost perfect hostel. Great location, walking distance to everything there is to do in Brussels. Great rooms that are cleaned every day and the showers are great. If there was anything to complain about it would only be the limited seating space there is during the day, could probably get rid of those arcade machines and put some more tables. Otherwise a perfect stay. Will come again.

    Great Value for money, perfect for short trips. Only downside is the size of the communal kitchen which is a bit small considering the amount of rooms but overall it was a great stay. Quite modern and includes will the amenities you need especially if you're a student looking to travel.

    Really clean and modern. Beds are comfortable and the bar was good. it’s about a 15 minute walk to the main part of town. What really stood out to me was how clean the bathrooms were and the whole room in general. My bed was comfortable too. Stay here if you don’t mind a small walk to the city.

    Great spot for a comfortable and clean sleep. Just lacking the social backpacker atmosphere as it is more of a hotel (and a very big one) with some dorm rooms.

    The receptionist did the bare minimum to check me in(paper based, really?) and didn't offer any information about the city or things to do. The room was very clean, new bed and plenty of luggage storage options. It's a huge building and there were many groups of loud kids hoarding the common areas, which are nice, but made them less enjoyable. Key card access 24h even on the elevator, so that's a plus. The kitchen is well equipped but too small for the a mount of people. Would still recommend it
