The Gastama is a great place to : Laugh (the staff is very nice and friendly, always happy to help) Sleep (the rooms are clean, well designed) Party (the bar is always full and the atmosphere is great!) The gastama is located in the old part of the town which is the best one! Very easy to visit around.

Friendly staff, Clean rooms, Great atmosphere in the bar in the evenings, Nice communal area upstairs to cook meals and socialise! I stayed here when I first moved to Lille and was searching for accommodation; I ended up meeting my current housemates in Gastama. Would highly recommend this Hostel to any young people coming to Lille for the first time

This was our final stop on our trip of Europe. The rooms were modern and clean. The facilities were second to none, very impressed with the guests kitchen.

I stayed in a six-bed female dormitory. The room was spacious and clean, the beds were comfortable, bedding was provided and each bed also had an individual curtain, light and plugs which were very convenient. Moreover, the staff were very friendly and the hostel has a great atmosphere, as well as feeling safe and secure. If only this place had... More

Our first place in our trip in Europe was a great experience! A shared room is not a problem, it's secure and clean. It surrounding are OK, A place you have to visit is the Citadelle!!! Nice place to walk around.

Lille is a really wonderful part of France that speaks a whole lot of English! It is amazing, they speak it so well and aren't rude at all when you don't speak French. That was the same kind of impression I got when I arrived at Gastama after what felt like a super long walk with a 10kg backpack! (10... More
