  • This hostel was ok. The window on our dorm was broken so anyone could reach in and open the door from the inside. This was a bit unsettling. The location wasn't ideal, I didn't feel like i was in a very safe part of town. The staff were kind and helpful, breakfast was good and the bar was good in the evening.

  • The staff was kind and helpful, and I always felt safe while I was there. There were no lockers in the room but you could store your luggage in a locker on the bottom floor, which was extremely inconvenient. Other than that, I had an overall positive experience and would highly recommend staying there.

  • The wifi wasn't very good, and there was no hand soap. Also, the showers made you hold down the button, it was warm though. The staff was okay but not really friendly. The location was a bit hard to find and it was a bit far from the square. However there were sound stairs and I got some friendly roommates. There weren't enough outlets for everyone though and the commons didn't have that many either. Overall I give it just average.

  • I loved this hostel! Everything is set to make new friends easily : The breakfast place, the bar, the kitchen, the solarium, the garden! Thumbs up to Benoit the barman and to Maurice « de l'île Maurice » who was obsessed with La Chouffe beer! I wasn't too impressed by the receptionist who took half an hour to check me in and by the receptionist who was really strict with the peope partying late at night thought.

  • Never met more helpful and nicer people in my entire life. People that work at the reception are wonderful! I really enjoyed staying there. If I ever travel to Brussels again I'll definitely choose this place :)
