  • Great location, super convenient. Staircase to get up to rooms is very small. Really cool kitchen area, really nice bathrooms, nice rooms. Lots of people to meet there, met a good friend of mine there.

  • I would definitely stay in this hostel again! It is in the center of the city next to Grand Place, which is great, but it is loud. There is not a reception (it's at their other location), but I ended up not needing them after checking in. The bathrooms and rooms are exceptionally nice and clean! Very pleased with that. The hostel seems a bit sketchy from the outside and is hard to find because lack of a proper sign, but it is worth it. Lockers in each room, but they take smaller locks!

  • The hostel was under construction. Anyways, the rooms were clean and secure. I guess is going to be even better when they finish the renovation. Recommended.

  • O Hostel é muito limpo e muito tranquilo, excelente para quem quer descansar e a localização é excelente. O problema é que não tem uma recepção 24hs e a recepção é distante do hostel o que acaba não dando tanta segurança e facilidade ao local. Quando fomos o elevador quebrou e não arrumaram, tivemos que subir e descer as malas do último andar o que nos causou bastante transtorno. É legal por que tem uma cozinha equipada com geladeira, microondas e fogão no entanto ela fecha as 23hs.

  • The Grand Place Hostel is a bit difficult to find, because there is no sign from the outside. But the location is's really directly located in the city centre and it's not far to go out for dinner, shopping, drinking, partying, sightseeing, etc. The staff was really nice, the whole place in a really good condition and clean. We stayed there just one night, but we would go there again.

  • After having payed for my stay in full, they told me they might have charged my credit card for one additional night, but that they would check and send me an email. I've never received such an email. I checked my credit card details and they did charge me. Now I've sent them countless emails asking for the extra charge money back. So far I've got no answer.

  • Great hostel, just beware the checkin is about a fifteen minute walk from the actual hostel, and there is no staff present at the hostel where you will be staying. The kitchen also closes quite early. Location is amazing, you won't find anything better!

  • The first hostel ever where the sheets were ironed!!! :) very clean, cozy room, excellent location, and even though the hostel is next door to the bar, it was pretty quiet at night and we got a good night sleep.

  • The location is absolutely unbeatable, it's seriously 20 meters from the Grand Place. Thus location was amazing for sight seeing and getting around town, but it was also a slight con on the weekend nights I stayed here. The hostel guests were respectful and quiet, but my room had a window onto the street that was a little loud on the weekends.
