I cannot rate this hotel 5 stars just because of the type of establishment it is. But as a basic budget hotel, it is certainly a great find. There is nothing special about the rooms - they are very plainly furnished and decorated. Yet my single room was clean and contained everything you could want including a TV and a... More

We stayed with the family (two young children) while on a business/leisure trip. The place was spacious and the location great. The mattresses were excellent. It is close to restaurants that the locals go and not at all touristy area. Cons: the furniture look old and weary and the common areas look old too. There was a narrow staircase for... More

The room was clean and comfortable. The price was cheap for Brussels. It had free wifi and free breakfast. It was within a walkable distance of all major sites in Brussels. The service was ok. The hotel was small which gave it a homey feel.

Me and three other friends got to this hostel before check in time at around 7:30 AM, and we were allowed to check into our room early! We had a private room for the four of us, and it turned out we had a private apartment complete with a double bed, pull out couch, living room, kitchen, and bathroom. The... More

My friend and I arrived at Brussels-Charleroi airport around 11 am and made it to the hostel by noon (you can get either a bus or split a cab with people for 15-17 euros). We were greeted at the front door and even though we had problems getting money from ATMs to pay the rest of our balance, they told... More

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at (and I've stayed at a lot!). The owner was very kind and generous, the room was clean and spacious, it was located close to the main attractions in Brussels, and the price was eminently reasonable. All in all, I am extremely happy with my stay there and will be sure to... More

We were getting a late flight to Brussels which meant we would be a little late checking in. We communicated this to Edward & Guy, who said it was not a problem and they would wait for us. When we arrived we rang the buzzer and were given the friendliest welcome. We were taken to reception and given our room... More

We spent two nights here in February during half term. There were five of us in two rooms in the adjacent building. The beds were comfortable and it was nice and quiet at night. Good access to city centre and metro.

My fiancee and I stayed here for 3 nights just after the new year. We had a private room and bath which were neat and tidy, the bed was comfortable, and the room was pleasantly large and quiet. The best parts of the stay were the location and breakfast. The residence is half a block from the Brussels holiday market,... More

This is probably one of the best choices for accommodation I've made during my travels. The owner is super helpful, the rooms are spacious, the internet is good, everything is spotlessly clean and breakfast is included. All at a very decent price. I'm definitely returning the next time I'm in Brussels.
