Make Snuffel Hostel, in the central Ezelstraat Quarter, your base in Bruges. We pride ourselves on being a socially engaged hostel and supporting domestic social tourism projects. We're a real home for globetrotters and explorers – get to know your fellow guests in our bar, the buzzy social hub of the hostel. There's also a big outdoor terrace for you to hang out on when it's sunny, and a common area and games room inside too. Oh, and before we forget: breakfast is on us, so you can fuel up for free before a long day (or after a long night!).


Bruges is a pretty walkable city, and we're handily located just under a 10-minute walk from main bustle of the city, where you'll find key hotspots like the Markt (the central square), Burg Square, Praalboog Pro Patria and the Belfry of Bruges. You can reach Bruges from Brussels Airport by train in about 90 minutes. It's a half-hour walk to the station, or it's 10 minutes by bus (the stop you want is De Snuffel).

Rooms and Dorms

The hostel's been renovated recently, meaning our rooms are clean, fresh and bright, and come with free passcode-protected storage lockers (no need to bring or buy a padlock!). We have mixed and female-only dorms, as well as private double rooms – some of our rooms have en-suites and all come with free linen.

Extras and activities

You're welcome to make your own food at any time in our kitchen – or you can grab a bedtime snack from one of our vending machines. Our building's wheelchair-friendly, with lifts to all floors, and there's free Wi-Fi everywhere so you can easily keep in touch with your friends and family. But first, get exploring! Our staff speak several languages and are city experts; they'll happily give you sightseeing tips or bar recommendations, as well as a free map to help you out.

    Great place for a great price! Breakfast is served way too late for those who want to get out sightseeing and get on with travel agendas. Great kitchen and lounge for use in purpose built hostile. Large lockers in each room which can be locked securely with own code. No guarantee of a decent nights sleep even in a four bedroom with two people coming in very very late and one snorting all night long. No curfew but they do give you earplugs. Otherwise great ambience and lovely space!

    Our stay at Snuffel was great! Staff was so nice and we appreciated the free breakfast. The shower was the only thing I could complain about as it was on a timer and the shower head barely let out any water.

    This is a great hostel. Great location, a short and lovely walk into town. The staff are super friendly and helpful, and the hostel has a great atmosphere with some nice chill out areas. The rooms are very spacious and clean, and have huge lockers to store your stuff. Well-equipped kitchen. The only downside was the showers, which you had to push every ten seconds for water to come out, and the water pressure was very weak so it felt like you weren't really showering properly.

    Had a great stay at this hostel - perfect location for exploring Bruges but staying out of the hectic tourist areas. The free breakfast was great and the private room we stayed in was spacious and clean. The only issue we had was some unreliable lockers (already locked when we arrived, and at one staged changed combinations so we could not unlock our valuables - easily fixed by a member of staff). Would otherwise highly recommend.

    Amazing hostel, so clean and chill, location is ok, just walking distance from the center. Most of the staff is amazing, however, there is one rude, condescending girl at the reception desk that will make you feel like an idiot if you ask anything.
