The hostel is indeed cheap and clean, but I wouldn't choose it at all if you want to enjoy your weekend in Brussels: - Very unfriendly staff, who made us feel the whole time like they were doing us a favor for answering our questions - Wierd enough, they FORCE you to leave the hostel every day between 10:00 and...

4 of us stayed at the Bruegel Youth Hostel in September 2013. It was a great stay and much cleaner and more amenities than you would expect from a Hostel with a reasonable price. The rooms are clean and private, offering a chance at your own shower which can be a relief after travelling in group and staying in dorms.... More

Avoid at all costs, unfriendly staff, horrific rules (not allowed inside your room or the hostel at all for a large portion of the day). This is not so much a hostel as a detention centre filled with incredibly unfriendly and bizzare individuals running the establishment. DO NOT STAY HERE!

The location is quite near from Brussels Central Station and the famous Manneken Pis. Staff were friendly and explains so well their hotel policies. I was staying in a 4-bed dormintory and room is enough. However, there is no toilet in the room, no lockers, no towels provided, and wifi not really working except at the lobby area. Luggage room...

Hostels are cheap acomodation and you must not expect any kind of luxury, but you can expect normal shower but in bruegel youth hostel the shower is bad in so many ways that is almost useless. You can not stay in hostel betwen 10am and 2pm becouse of only basic cleaning. You must stay out of hostel for 4 hours... More

It was my first time staying in a youth hostel and I loved it! I found nothing bad about this place! For the price you get fantastic service where the staff go the extra mile for you! With a smile! You are near everything...and well it was just wonderful! I would go back there anytime and I would totally recommend... More

Wifi is shut of between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. so stupid!!! Most of the staff is unfriendly and not helpful!... More

The lights went out during the evening randomly for around 15 minutes. The WiFi was terrible everywhere except the canteen - even then it was pretty poor. Breakfast is what you'd expect for a free one - not great but at least it was something. The beds were okay, the room was fairly clean, the staff were helpful and the... More
