  • Location just outside the center (30min to get there). A lot of bathrooms and showers. Cheap hostel bar but bad internet reception. Quite nice hostel.

  • Large, well-kept hostel that felt comfortable and safe. Probably noisier during full tourist season. Good location, with the city centre accessible by metro or walking. Breakfast was entirely adequate – great muesli.

  • The hostel is ok. It is a bit far from downtown and in a kind of hill. Our room was ok, a little bit old and the shower just had a button, no temperature control. Breakfast is not a big deal but at least is included. They have a really nice chill-out area and terrace to hang out. Overall it is good with affordable prices.

  • Unfortunately the hostel is located near the Brussels red light district, but everything else was great. Wifi is only stable in the lobby area but it is nicely furnished. Rooms were clean and the view outside our window was also pretty nice!

  • Good value for money but nothing special. Common area is bland and staff is friendly enough. Sink in room and private toilets.

  • It was good value for the money (very cheap). Overall it was kind of creepy-ish; the beds looked like a prison dormitory, and the showers and bathroom were sketchy. But honestly I just needed a place to put my stuff and sleep at night, so it was all right.
