This was one of my favorite stops on our trip. The hostel was right in grand place (though you check in about a mile away.) We stayed in a 10 bed mixed dorm which had 2 showers and 1 toilet. There was a common area and a nice kitchen with a large tv which was good for watching the world... More

Me and 3 of my girl friends stayed in this hostel in April 2014 on a 2 night trip to Brussels. At first the hostel didn't seem very promising. We failed to read the small print on the email so therefore when we turned up at the address, the sign at the door stated we had to check in at... More

The price of this hostel was great and the location is beyond phenomenal, there is simply no better spot the hostel can be in. The one complaint I have is that checking in at the other hostel and then going to the one where you sleep is a bit tricky, but if you have some time to do that and... More

Pros: BEST LOCATION EVER CLEAN! Awesome kitchen area. Very confortable beds. Climatized bedrooms. Elevator to higher floors. Safe (access cards only) Cons: Lack of social interaction (specially if you travel by yourself). No staff on site during most of the hours (their main bureau is at 2goTo Hostel, for economy purposes). Automatic drink dispenser devoid of Water for most of... More

First things first.. If you're primarily motivated by finding a hostel in an ideal location... look no further. The hostel is a matter of seconds from The Grand-Place, which is pretty much the heart of Brussels. If you want a clean room, with modern up-to-date facilities and ample space.. again, look no further. As a hostel it serves it's purpose... More

The price is very affordable, the location is ideal but the staff at the main check-in were a little rude. Was there in july of 2012, renovations were on going and very loud during the day but quiet at night. Its a city...so it will be a tad noisy through the night. Me and my travel buddy came in very...

I checked in late in the night just for a few hours to catch the early morning Thalys from Brussels South station. I was first asked to report to one place then went on to search for the actual place 1 km away. ideally . I should have been informed on the web site itself. The location is nice. The... More

After walking to the other place for checkin in the heat, only to be told to come back at 4. Nowhere on paperwork did it say 4! So I walked back to town, back again at 4 and then back again! Waste of a day ! Room was neat and tidy but small and cramped. At night it was so... More

The most annoying thing about this hostel is that you have to check in at a different location to where the hostel is situated. If you have a good map then it’s not a problem but it’s so much easier when you’re booked into a hostel where the check in is with the rooms. In terms of the hostel itself,... More

the plus side to this hostel is that it's totally modern, clean & fresh and the Grand Place is just a stone throw away. If you arrive before 4pm then you have to drop off your bag at their other hostel which means walking back to get it later on (about 10 mins walk each way). There is no reception... More
