  • It's a great hostel, just a bit far away from a lot of the action. Also, toilets are outside of the room and, speaking as a girl who needs the facilities often, it was a bit inconvenient to leave the room everytime I needed to relieve myself.

  • If you're not too picky and looking to go to Brussels on a budget, you might like this hostel. Not sure if I would stay again.

  • No wifi in the rooms. The building makes strange loud noises on some early mornings (sounded like a whale was dying). The directions given in the email had a few gaps I had to fill, the most difficult ones I've had in my hosteling experience. Oh and it wasn't made clear to me and obviously other people that you were supposed to take the sheets off when you checkout. A girl left and didn't do that so the cleaning people didn't put fresh ones which caused confusion when other people checked in.

  • Clean, good localization and nice breakfast. I'd definitely stay there again.if you have big luggage prepare yourself: Bring two padlocks. The luggage room requires a padlock, as well as the lockers I'm the room (small ones). I had to buy one extra at the reception.
