I feel almost terrible to be leaving this review after experiencing the warm hospitality of the staff, who helped me carry my luggage up and down the stairs, who patiently answered my queries, kept stuff for me at the reception and even got a bed for my sick friend after we checked out. Also, breakfast was fairly standard - toast,... More

Our stay for one night was nice in every respect: At first the staff gave us very useful NFO what to do in & around Bruges. The possibility to rent a bike for a small amount of money was as well as the kitchen just perfect. The rooms are OK & there are clean toilets. All in all, we enjoyed... More

I stayed in this hostel with four friends. We stay in a 6 bed room for us, one night. The place is far away to be luxurious (is an hostel, not the Ritz Hotel), but it is extremly clean, it is five minutes walking from the Markt and the Belfort and the staff is super friendly. The price that you... More

1st impression-smelly loud low-class beer pit-stop instead of a hostel reception. A survival climb up the narrow shaky swirl stairs against all H&S rules to the room. Odd decoration throughout in best mid 90-ties traditions, layer upon layer of bright paint on everything that might have needed just cleaning. Tiny dark room with 2 wobbly wooden bunkbeds "decorated" all over... More

Went here with a group of friends, we got a private room between 4 as we had read that the showers involved going outside - but the private room gets their own shower which was nice. The hostel staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. The steps to the rooms are steep and narrow so be careful and I... More

The staff were very friendly. The lady who checked us in was in charge of about 5 things at once, but was very nice. Warning:Do not bring big baggage to this hostel. Leave it at the train station. You likely will not be able to get it up the narrow, winding staircase. It was incredibly difficult AND we were only... More

I've stayed in a lot of hostels, but this was honestly the WORST hostel I've ever been to. staff was okay enough, but the facilities were absolutely horrendous. there is a bar downstairs (which is normally cool) except all of the older local men come there to drink all day and night. there is a smoking area outside, right outside...

One of my favorite hostels! Yes, it is not the best rooms ... but there's is an incredible atmosphere, friendly and nice staff, and of course a pub with performance of the music groups. I really liked there! I want visit this hostel and this beautiful city again!

Visited last summer before going to Rock Werchter festival. Perfect place to stay for a couple of days. While there wasnt a huge amount going on in Bruges, this provided a lovely relaxed place with great drink prices and like-minded people. Very helpful staff, with where to go in town - and helped us when needing somewhere to store our... More
