The artist himself had his studio at our beloved Van Gogh Hostel – and we've made it friendly and hospitable whether you're a budding painter or not. We're an ideal base for exploring Brussels, with a fun bar where you can sample over 20 local craft beers. Afterwards, test out your skills at a game of pool. To keep the budget under control, we have a roomy kitchen for preparing hot meals and packed lunches, and breakfast's free!


In just over 10 minutes you can walk to the hostel from Bruxelles-Nord train station, one of the city's main transport hubs with links to the airport. An easy way to zoom around is on the Metro, and the hostel's only a 4-minute stroll from Botanique, the nearest stop. If you're not in a rush and fancy taking the scenic route into town you can reach the Grote Plaze (Grand Place), in the heart of the Old Town, on foot in 20 minutes.

Bunk up with other travellers in a mixed or single-sex dorm, or go private if you prefer. We have single, double and triple rooms. Bed linen is included and as you relax after an eventful day you can message your family and friends using the free Wi-Fi. Lockers for stashing all your stuff are provided in the rooms – just remember to bring your own padlock.

    We stoped in Brussels on our trip to Africa and stayed the night in this hostel. It was pretty clean, nice outdoors area and bar. The rooms were pretty clean but not the best matress. The location is OK; you can walk to the center actually but is a bit far. The staff was so helpful! The kitchen was also OK.

    The staff was really nice and attentive except for one gentleman. Especially the young bartender was nice and knew a lot about the beers! Rooms next to the garden were really nice, a unique location to be admired even during autumn days.

    My second time staying at this hostel- the free breakfast is substantial and staff are kind. I arrived very early (5:30am) and although I couldn’t check in, a staff member offered me and tea and to chill in the lounge area. The price of the hostel is very reasonable and the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. Free locker storage is very helpful. Good and well operated hostel!

    It’s a good hostel with perfect location and the staff is friendly and nice the only concern is that the bathroom and showers are not in the rooms and not even near them you have to walk through the reception to get there which is not a good thing but overall it’s very good for a short stay

    It was fine. Bar had great Belgian beers for cheap. Met some cool people. Beds were squeaky as hell though, and showers were wack.

    If you're looking for a basic hostel this is exactly what you'll find here. Bathrooms could be cleaner. There is no security at the front door or to get to the rooms. Only time you need a key is for your direct room. Location is good - near tram and also only a 20 minute walk to the touristy stuff. Overall, you get what you pay for and I have no real complaints or qualms.

    I’ve been backpacking around Europe for months and this is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. The hostel has no Atmosphere and the facilities are like army style living and there is only one powerpoint in each 4 bedroom dorm. General safety for guests here....walking through the red light district at night will give you the feeling of being unsafe. Avoid catching a late train.

    This hostel was very difficult to get to using public transport. The staff spoke very little English and didn’t want to engage in English at all (luck I speak French)! The shared bathroom situation isn’t ideal. But the hot water is fabulous. Breakfast was free but very poor, toast ran out and there wasn’t any options for people with dietary requirements which are very common in today’s society.
