Pro: very clean, great location near town center and train station, felt safe, gave me a great take-away breakfast (four slices of bread, jam, butter, generic Nutella, orange, chocolate milk, two small cheeses) because I was leaving before breakfast began Con: pay (1.50) lockers for early check-in, showers are a pain but save water, 10-2 lock out (bit surely you're...

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

You are near everything...and well it was just wonderful! I would go back there anytime and I would totally recommend... 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

This hostel is very well located in the heart of Brussels. The rooms are clean, the bar in the cellar is cute and the employees are friendly. The breakfast is simpel but sufficient and it is possible tot have dinner there.

So I saw there was the Chapelle train station nearby, but found out after booking that it's a semi-abandoned station that only offers one train per hour in each direction. With any baggage, Line 27 bus is the best bet (to/from Zuid/Midi station) to get here. I arrived from Luxembourg station on Line 27 (the other direction), but street traffic... More
