Very clean and friendly hostel. I stayed there only a few hours (I needed a bed after a gig just to have a few hours sleep before catching my coach back to London) but the bed was very comfortable. All beds in the dormitory had a small curtain for added privacy, 2 power plugs each and individual lights. The toilets... More

Friendly staff and a lively atmosphere. Very comfy beds and quiet rooms with clean bathroom facilities. Reasonably priced and in a handy location to explore Lille. The bar downstairs shows sports and is full of locals and guests on weekends.

Stayed there for five nights while being on a summer school. The organizers of the event were supposed to make a booking for me but they had forgotten so when I arrived there they did, of course, not have my name. As they had free rooms anyways this should not have been a problem. Yet, it took the rather arrogant... More

Such a nice hostel run by some friendly staff. The place was clean, tidy and efficient. The gentleman on the front desk was very helpful he suggested where I visited in Lille and gave me a plan for the next 48 hours. At night the bar was lively and offered a large amount of reasonably priced draught beers if you... More

The location isn't very central and you need to walk 15 minutes to get to the centre of town. It is a long way from Lille Flanders Station with luggage (1.6 kms), however the hostel lists a bus that you can take. The receptionist we has when we checked in was lovely and made us feel welcome at the hostel.... More

My friends and I, whilst finding a place to live in Lille, have stayed at Gastama on 3 separate occasions over the last 2 weeks. The hostel was clean and comfortable, and some of the staff were friendly and accommodating. However, on the day of our departure we were 15/20 minutes late to check out of our room. We were...

Stayed here twice at the start and finish of a trip around Europe. Had a wonderful experience both times - friendly staff, nice rooms, good facilities, pleasant location and a good range of beers, all for a very reasonable price. You'll do no better in Lille.

I loved Gastama more than any other hostel I have been to so far. I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm. The beds were comfortable and you had a curtain! In you bed you had your own little light and 2x power plugs. There are little roll out cages to lock your bags under the bed. There is also... More

The Gastama is a great hostel. It was clean, orderly, and convenient. The staff were very helpful and we were very satisfied with the double room. The breakfast was nice (I believe we paid 5 euro) if not simple. They provide really good maps. It was't really difficult to locate, but it's not exactly in the center of the city,... More
