Your authentic Belgian experience starts here at St Christopher’s Inn Bauhaus Bruges. You'll find us in six historic step-gable houses (your first Insta story taken care of). That's right: our party hostel will give you a taste of Belgian fairy-tale charm and – of course – beer. Head down to our bar to try one of the 40+ brews on tap, or find a new favourite at our daily tasting sessions. With two (yes, two!) happy hours each day and a bar that serves until 2am, the good times roll from check in.


We're in the heart of historic Bruges surrounded by medieval architecture, tempting chocolate shops and lovely streets. The bus from Brugge Station drops you just 4 minutes' walk from our door. Start your exploration at Markt Square before climbing the 366 steps to the top of the Belfry tower for jaw-dropping views. Next, walk the labyrinth of canal bridges or spot works by Michelangelo at the Church of our Lady – a 15-minute stroll away. Internationale Luchthaven Oostende-Brugge (the airport) is a 40-minute taxi ride away.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll love our pod beds in our mixed and female dorms, with their individual charging points, reading lamps and curtains for extra privacy. Linen is included, plus we make and strip the beds ourselves – so you can simply check in and relax. You won't need to bring a padlock as we have secure electronic lockers for your backpack. Want more space? Check into a single, double or twin room with your own en-suite.

Extras and activities

Stay as late as you like at Bruges' canal-side bars: there’s no curfew at our 24-hour reception. We've got free Wi-Fi throughout, so you can plan your next adventure from the comfort of your bed. Traveling solo? Join our free Legends of Bruges walking tour, or get stuck into a board game in the bar. If you're on a whistle-stop visit, rent a bike at reception to whizz around the city.

    This is the place to be in Bruges. It’s a great hostel if you want to meet people - lots of different age groups and backgrounds. There is a bar with music playing downstairs until 2am. Rooms are clean too. If you’re in Bruges, this is the hostel to be at.

    The hostel was really good for me, had everything you need as a traveler, besides that the installations are incredible, they have this social reception where you can meet other people. Was a good experience, I stay there for 1 day, but would be q good place for stay a little bit more and travel around, like travel one day to Ghent, Brussels.

    This hostel was great as a solo traveller looking to meet people. Highly recommend you to do the night tour of Brugge which ends with an optional beer tasting at the Bauhaus. Dorms were spacious, comfy and clean. Would definitely stay again.

    I really loved stayed here! The atmosphere is really great and it’s pretty easy to meet people, even though it’s a pretty big hostel. It was really easy to meet people in the bar, and they offer a lot of really good walking tours and bike hire so there’s plenty to do. The beds were really comfy and you have a curtain so it’s very private. Only complaint would be it would have been nice to have a kitchen (there’s only tea and coffee making stuff and a microwave) and the shower was kinda cold.

    Great hostel, nice atmosphere and good facilities. It’s got a bar downstairs which has a real party vibe, but the rooms were quiet, comfortable and with a curtain for privacy.

    Its nice that they have lockers in the rooms and storage lockers outside but I would have prefered if the ones outside were not ones you had to pay for as this is not so common at most hostels. Lacks kitchen facilities and seems a little low on washrooms. But otherwise good beds, sheets and an outlet at every bed. Sinks in every room. A bit loud because its connected to a bar but Im a heavy sleeper. Overall decent. Better to book through them to get free breakfast.
