    I had a great time at this hostel! You can crash here after along day of exploring bruges and sleep like a baby or if you still have energy you can chill at the bar downstairs wich has a very young energetic staff and very interested people, you will definitely make friends here! Facilities are good and doesn’t feel crowded even though the have almost full house most of the time. I will stay here next time!

    The hostel is really nice: good location, cool building, good room, friendly staff, cheap breakfast and good beer. I would recommend it to friends travelling together as backpackers. I enjoyed my stay here. It is a real cool place to stay! :-)

    The rooms are really nice, each bed has a curtain so you can have privacy. They also have a little night light and a plug. The toilets sometimes smelled a bit though they are clean. The place doesn't have a kitchen but since I only stayed for a night it wasn't a problem. They have free tea in the morning and hot water all day.

    Yeh not a bad hostel, it’s a bit annoying that the common room for the hostel is open to public and that it’s an actual pub. Also there were plenty of local 16 yeah olds that come to drink at the pub at night which is annoying.

    Very spacious in the dorms and the curtains provided good privacy. A little way out of town, about a 15min walk to the market place. Enjoyed our stay.

    I have travelled all around the world in different hostels, but I haven’t seen such bad service ever. First of all if you arrive early be ready to keep your luggage in locker room for which you have to pay, generally hostels allow to keep luggage for free but then I think it’s British thing to extract money from every possible way then when I wanted to checkout early morning there reception n building was closed and I couldn’t get my security amount back. No wonder British economy is going down.

    Toilets were very dirty, there was puke all over the toilet. Went to another toilet and it was very bad as well. The rooms feel old and a bit dirty too. My experience was not great either because of the people at the hostel. People who don’t care about others sleeping schedules and will leave all their stuff all over the place. I feel like this place is incredibly overpriced for what you get. It looks nothing like in the pictures. Location is not amazing either.

    I truly feel that this place ruined my experience in Brugge because this hostel is just flat out TERRIBLE. The staff are incredibly rude & were too busy chatting amongst themselves to help the guests. It took me nearly 30 minutes to get checked in & there was legit only 3 people ahead of me. Also the bar downstairs reeked like raw sewage & the wifi was completely useless for my entire stay. Lastly I woke up with BED BUG bites all over my body. Highly recommend avoiding this place at all costs.
