DIfficult to find unless you are using GPS. A more mixed population in this area of Brussels that might make it tough for a single woman to venture forth in the evening. Not too far from the tube, however. Friendly staff. Has parking for RV's in a very secure parking area for your car if you have one.

A basic hostel type accommodation. I had a 2 bedded room with on suite but many rooms are dormitories without bathrooms. It is clean and well maintained but not facilities to talk about. It does have a very pleasant garden area that is nice to sit in when the weather is good. They do a basic continental breakfast. If you... More

€28 we paid and it was very overpriced for what you get, awful colour scheme, plain rooms, no wifi in rooms - the staff were nice and the dinner and breakfast we lovely but the location wasn't too good, about 30 mins away from train stations and about 20 minutes walk to the main square it wasn't too bad to...

This place was OK, I hadn't really planned to stop off in Brussels but decided to do so at the last minute en route from Amsterdam to Paris, so I very quickly and randomly chose this hostel. This was veeery different from some of the much more party oriented hostels I stayed at so far on this trip so not... More

The hostel itself is very nice. The room I was in had four beds (two bunks), an en suite bathroom and lockers. The room was very simple, but comfy. Free breakfast in the morning was very good. The TV room was broken and apart from the free wifi there wasn't much to do. In general I'd stay here again but... More

The place itself is ok, and seems secure with 2 doors to get through with a card or to be buzzed in. The rooms are good provided your company is tidy, and quiet. The beds good enough, but I wasn't supplied with blanket cover, only 2 sheets, this time of year I wasn't complaining. The Internet was good, but if... More

The area is not good, and I felt unsafe walking around, even in the day time. I would make sure I was back at the hostel well before dark, and would not leave for dinner or anything. The rooms were large, which was good, and mine had a bathroom assigned to it personally, which was great, except the shower head... More

The hostel was wonderful. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, and had lockers provided. The location, however, was terrible. The hostel is located just on the outskirts of the centre and the neighborhood is not pleasant. My sister and I arrived in Brussels as it was getting dark, there were groups of boys jeering at us...

I found this hostel pretty good. I was in a 4 bed dorm, and liked that each bed had its own reading light and little shelf, and that the room had its own bathroom and toilet, and that each were separate so each could be used at the same time. The big lockers plus cubby hole for your bag were... More
