The rooms are normal, and they have a shower (2 p bedroom). There's a comfy chilling area. They have night keys so you can come at any time (deposit is 20 euros cash!) and reception is open early. Breakfast included. Good place overall!

Do not stay in this hostel for any reason ! It was chaotic, the staff has 0 competence, there wasn't cold water, the temperature in the room is like in a fridge and the wifi doesn't work! Even worse, once I just asked to the reception a good place for eating and the guy didn't want to answer me because... More

The position is absolutely super (15 minutes walk to the central train station and to the city center). The hostel is not really comfortable regarding beds and toilets and the reception is not 24h available. The price is good considering the position and the average price of a night stay in Brussels. Breakfast is nothing special but surely I experienced... More

Very friendly staff, decent rooms and good location. Close to the centre and a 15 min walk to the main station. You get given clean sheets and the place is always very clean. Would definitely stay here again :)

I travelled alone, backpacking through Europe. Spent a night in here. Staff was very helpful, no problems there, breakfast (included in the cost of the room) was your standard continental breakfast: cereal, bread, coffee, milk etc. It was actually a bit better than in most other hostels I have stayed.Rooms were of adequate size, not big, but i have slept...

I did a mistake of staying here. The memories about this place still haunt me. There are so many things wrong about this place that I will list only the worst ones. 1. The staff: The lady receptionist was cordial enough to the guests, but the guy who was on the night shift was an a*******. When asked about the... More

Worst case of false advertising I have ever experienced. I booked this hostel online thinking it looked alright and that it would be a good location, close to the central station and the city centre but I got there and the place was awful. The room wasn't ready for me when I got there, so I had to pay to... More
