  • Other than the fact that you have to check in 1 mile from the hostel, they don't accept credit cards, staff are rude and strict, and the kitchen closes at 11pm, this hostel is ok. Atmosphere was lame when I was there (Friday night) but it could have potential.

  • You cannot beat the location of this hostel! Right in Grand Place. I will say though it was very difficult to find the first day. The check in is about a 20+ minute walk from where the hostel is, upon arrival to check in I was given a very crappy map and poor directions on how to get to the hostel. I got lost for 2hours with all my luggage going in circles. The locals seemed to have no idea on the address or even the hostel itself. Great free walking tour! Felt safe and enjoyed my stay overall.

  • Overall it was a great experience. I would only like to point out that the room I was staying in (12) in the grand place hostel had a broke door handle that would fall off every time I opened the door, no Aircon although we were told we'd have it and atleast 2 of the power socket on the walls weren't working.

  • It is a nice place, with a good environment, there is just the issue that you have to do the check-in in another place, after that is worth it. And in addition is located in a very comfortable place, where you can easily visit the city and go out at night.

  • I loved the hostel. Its at prime location..I mean exactly on the sqaure..But you have to check in some where else and the hostel is a mile away.. Thats really bothersome..Goodluck with that..Walk with bags and everything to almost a mile that too with just a map given by the reception in was a really tough thing to figure out which is the hostel building..

  • Excellent location and great facilities, especially for the cost. Worth sacrificing the convenience of a front desk.
