Cool place, fairly cramped but easy to get to on the bus. No major issues in the shared dorms. Average wifi quality. Staff were pleasant and helpful, bar did the job with plenty of beers as expected from a Belgian hostel!

Loved the vibes from this place! However, not the place you want to go if you're expecting 5star experience. There is no elevator and only tiny staircase. Showers a warm but work on a pull chain soo you have to pull on the chain at all times to get water.. Awkward for washing hair etc. The bar is great beds... More

The hostel was good, the staff is very helpful, but the showers are outside the hostel, we need to pass through their reception/bar to take shower. The room was little for the number of beds, the bathrooms were in another floor, but it was good in general. They have lockers with electricity inside so we can recharge our electronics inside...

In 15 you get to the main square. But they have the worst wifi ever: it doesn't work in the rooms and in the bar works for 2 min before dying forever. If you want (better said, if you must) use the internet, you pay 1 euro for 1 hour in a computer. Also, to get a shower you need... More

I had a great stay here. The bar downstairs is great for meeting people and reasonably priced, the kitchen is easy to use and the breakfast is good. Rooms are clean and as are the bathrooms. All in all I had a good stay at this hostel and found everything clean and the staff welcoming and helpful.

This hostel is great: it has great location, awesome and helpful staff, it's economic while it offers included breakfast, a free walking tour starts there, it has a bar with cheap beer, offers and happy hour, etc. would definitely go there again!

The Snuffel Backpacker Hostel is a nice little place perfect for LIGHT travellers. Emphasis on the light since there's no lift (elevator), but a beautiful and narrow wooden spiral staircase. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. I lose my keycard on my first day (in the hostel). Instead of charging me 5€ and giving me a new one... More

It's a hostel, what can you expect? Dorm rooms, small spaces, backpackers everywhere. Being in Belgium, beers. Lots of beers everywhere. Stayed for two nights. Good facilities, prices at the bar and the staff were amazing. We really enjoyed our stay even if I was a bit on the cautious side being a bit paranoic about my belongings. Good breakfast... More

Only after booking the hostel did I check the reviews and was very worried about what my stay would be like. However, I'm so glad that I didn't read the reviews for them to put me off before hand as we had a great time here. Yes the stairs are windy and the showers are strangely located, and okay, the...

This hostel has a common room/bar with amazing atmosphere and cool people. It was pretty close to everything, included a good breakfast and had great maps of the city. The room was a solid hostel room: clean with enough bathrooms and good wifi. Overall a great place to stay.
