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.

    Exactly as advertised. The people at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Lockers in female dormitory were large enough to fit my backpack. Bigger lockers for larger luggage were available for extra charge in the common area. Very clean, would stay again!

    I'm pretty sure the first review I ever wrote for Hostelworld was for this place when I started travelling abroad seven years ago. It's still the best big hostel I've visited - and I've stayed in most of the 39 countries I've been to. Big hostels are often impersonal, but the staff here have been friendly in all the visits I've made here over those years. I'm tempted to say it's a Brussels thing, but I've stayed in other places here and they weren't so memorable. More expensive now, though...

    Fabulous

    The hostel has hotel vibes all over, but rooms are very comfortable and clean. The location is good but it’s not the best, and there are some facilities that could use an improvement. For example, just one washer and one dryer for the whole hostel is not enough, and the internet was often not working properly. Overall, a good hostel that could use some improvements.

    Fabulous

    Very clean! Super nice hostel. Beds were comfy and it felt like a hotel. I would say that the staff were always very busy so they were a bit standoff-ish. Also the location is a bit of a walk from the main attractions which isnt too bad just something to keep in mind. Would definitely recommend!

    Great hostel for a decent price. I wasn’t a huge fan of the location though and don’t think I would be returning.

    I was very unimpressed with this property. It is in a poor location and it is a far walk to many attractions. The rooms were extremely small and they were very clean. There was visible dust on the side of the bed I was in. The staff was standoffish and unfriendly. If you are not an avid backpacker and looking to them for guidance, this is not the place for you.

    The location was in a sketchy part of town. Graffiti everywhere, But on the building itself. The beds were smaller than typical. It was hot with very little circulation. Not a fan of this place. We’ve stayed in several hostels and this one was our worst experience.
