  • 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 :)

  • In few toilets hadwash liquid was missing. I also went to reception and asked about handwash but did not get any appropriate answer. There are a few power point plugs in each room and it is installed at arbitrary position.

  • It was good location&customer service. But the wall between rooms are tiny thin. It is easy to hear what other people are talking in the next room.

  • 21yr old female traveller, travelling alone. The hostel was very well located, easy to find and has everything you need. The atmosphere was allright but could've been a bit better. Maybe because it wasn't in a busy season. I had a 4 bed mixed shared room to myself which was nice at first but then felt quite lonely towards the end. This could've been improved if I'd shared a room with at least one other person. The toilet facilities on my floor were of a good standard and very clean.
