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

We stayed in a deluxe double room which has a ensuite bathroom with bathtub. The bed was simple but comfortable. The same goes for the room, sparsely decorated but clean and crisp. The communal kitchen and living room are both roomy and well equipped and there is a terrace adjacent to the living room. The bar is a hit with... More

Gastama is more than a Hostel. It is an experience. Sitting in the bar or in the kitchen chatting with people from all over the world about politics, religion, travel and of course football. Staying at gas tam was safe, fun and the whole of Lille was a short walk away. Nearby were cathedrals, restaurants and shops. And did I... More

We stayed here earlier this month and while the location was great and the cleanliness and overall quality of the accommodation was ok myself and my partner did not feel like it was very good value for the cost. That said, I'm sure you will find worse places than this.

The place is clean and modern, the staff is very friendly, it's kind of cheap as well. The bunk beds are just perfect, with electric adaptors, your own lights and curtains, they have a nice bar as well. On the other hand it's kind of far from de city centre, there's nothing to do near there, so just keep in... More

We had a great stay here in February! Super friendly staff, nice spacious rooms... but best of all: a super cosy and popular bar with a great atmosphere (especially in the weekend). The hostel is situated in the beautiful "Vieux Lille" and has great restaurants and bars in the area. Also free parking in a few adjacent streets. We will... More

We only stayed one night but we loved every second. The light in our room didn't work but we weren't fussed and we got a free beer which we were more than great-full for. Everyone was really friendly and helpful (even the people living upstairs) and gave us a great map pointing out placed to visit. Felt really safe while... More

I stayed here last December for a night with my girlfriend and while it’s not the worst place I’ve ever stayed in, it’s not the best either. Good points: comfortable bed, nice shower plenty of hot water, not too expensive Bad points: some staff members were rude, bed clothes & towels were not the cleanest I’m actually booked to stay...

Hi Niel, We know who you are and that your story is a fake. Sorry that you're still frustrated at having been kicked out because of your poor and agressive behavior in the bar with your friends . We are fair and not rude but friendly contrary to what you say in your fake review and as evidenced by our... More

Hostel Gastama is young, fresh and lively and the bar downstairs is thriving every night which is great if you want to meet other travellers and socialise. The bedroom, bathroom and kitchen facilities were clean and well equipped. The only downside I'd say about the hostel is its location as it takes about a 20 minute walk to get to... More

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.
