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.

    My sister and I really enjoyed our stay. We stayed for one night only in a private twin, en-suite. The only recommendation would be to have dead locks in private rooms for added security. We had the best nights sleep thanks to black out curtains and complimentary ear plugs. Great location, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Would definitely stay again. Oh and our shower was amazing!!!

    The Snuffle was lovely. Kind staff, chill atmosphere, lovely people and a great location. Wish we had stayed longer. The only issue was the rooms felt a bit stuffy and the beds weren't too comfortable so falling asleep was hard, but that's just what comes with staying in a hostel. Would definitely recommend.

    If you’re looking to party and be awake until 1am every night this is the hostel for you. Unfortunately was right above the bar so it was very loud and hard to sleep. The overall hostel is pretty clean, bathrooms just never had paper towel the entire time I was there and one of the sinks didn’t drain well. Big room big storage lockers. About 10-15min walk from everything but Brugge is small so not bad. Not really any major complaints except noise. Breakfast was mediocre but did the job.
