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.

Rooms and Dorms

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.

    A lovely hostel near the center of Bruxelles. The busses, trams and metro stop also walking distance. The room is so clean also the bathroom. There is also a kitchen where we can cook our meals and washing machine to wash our clothes. We have a good wifi connection and the breakfast is included. Excellent quality for a low price that I paid. The personnels are very helpful when you ask information. Vlog 8GladysWorld8

    Main note - I stayed during construction which often lasted until 23:30 :( saws buzzing and guys ripping out ceilings late into the evening made for a weird, loud atmosphere but less socializing in the hostel. Decently located, pleasant staff, standard European breakfast. Okay amenities, cool history. Be aware, many stairs! 7.5/10 Crazy squeaky/loud doors - when the family at the other end of the floor went in/out 16 times at 5am I couldn't get back to sleep. Grease your door hinges please! :)

    The private room we stayed in had lockers for storage and was in a nice area. There was poor ventilation, only a window next to the door. We tried to keep them open as much as we could, but the shower water and humidity made the room smell bad even if they were closed for only a few minutes. The staff was friendly and it was nice to have access to a kitchen even if it didn’t have the finest utensils. Overall a good place to stay! Know what you’re getting into, it is a cheap bed and room!

    Place is chill. Highly recommend a private if you can afford it as its drastically better than a shared room. Staff wasn't friendly and the environment was meh. Its not a party hostel which I liked. Location is really solid though.

    I stayed for one night as i had an overnight layover in Brussels. I had a full sized, 50lb suitcase with me, as well as a carryon duffel and backpack. The building where my room would be was down the road from the check in office & i was on the 3rd floor - no elevator. The storage lockers were not big enough for the suitcase, had to lug it up to top floor at 10:30pm. The pillow was a lumpy mess and the shower was gross. Breakfast was included but didn’t start until 8 so i didn’t get to try it.
