    While the hostel was mostly clean, you could tell it needed certain things replaced. I was in the building accross the street. Bedding sheets had holes and the washrooms had no toilet paper holds, which while minor made it feel more run down. Breakfast while free - was lacking. Cheap Sandwhich breads,meat and cheese. No eggs and fruit. Also the power went out on the friday night and somehow this caused the fire alarm to go off in the building - from 11pm-12:30am. Staff couldnt turn off the alarm

    The hostel is a bit far from the city center, but the bus stop is just next to it. So if you take the bus from the brussels central station, it's about 10 minutes. Nice and decent breakfast included on price and a great bar/yard to chill. The guy in the reception was not that friendly, I would say he was bored to be there.The room was old and tiny for 8 people and not the cleanest room in the world, but okay.. My "roomates" were the most loud and disrespectful people I have ever met in a hostel.

    Pretty decent hostel. About 20 minutes to walk to La Grand Place, and a metro stop 2 minutes away so pretty accessible. Hostel was overall pretty good, really good free breakfast every morning, and clean rooms. My biggest complaint however is that there were only 2 power outlets in the 4 bed dorm I was staying in (and none were near any of the beds) so that is something to keep in mind, luckily I had a portable charger, so it wasn’t to inconvenient.

    Staff was not very nice ate breakfast, but they were nice at the reception. I don’t trust a lot walking in the streets around the hostel at night by myself. There way from Brussels Noord station to the hostel on foot was a bit scary at night. Brussels is not such a safe city, so pay attention. The pillows of the bed were awful, and we share only two bathrooms and one toilet for several rooms... they should have more vegan options for breakfast. But the room was ok, we had a sink inside.

    The hostel was good overall but we had a problem with the heaters. They turned they all off during the night and me and my friends were all really cold.
