Great central location for walking into Brugge. Staff were friendly and there were lots of student / young traveller specific city guides available for free. We stayed in a four person room which was comfortable and quiet, very secure. The bar had a big selection of beers to drink and board games to play. Breakfast in the morning of unlimited... More

We have been to Belgium and amesterdam for a week and this was the worst hostel of all... The showers are somewhere in the bar and toilets near the room... They gave us only one key for 5 ppl... Breakfast was good. Its not in the city centre also... 1 toilet was shared between 20+ people and literally we had... More

We stayed here for one night on the way to Paris. Burgee is beautiful and this hostel in the perfect location. It's only 5-10 minute walk from the Markt and from the bars and restaurants. Staff are friendly and the place was busy as the reception doubles as a bar for the locals. There is a wide selection of Belgian... More

We stayed here for one night en route from lille to Paris! Bruge is a beautiful place and if you want a laid back atmosphere and your not too bothered about the decor etc then this is your place. Bar had ok drink, if you live beer your in, but didn't have much else! They did good snack food! Was... More

The location of this place is great, within a 5-10 minute walk of Markt. It was also very nice that you can hire bikes from this hostel at a very decent rate to explore the rest of Bruges and surrounding areas. There is a very chilled out vibe to the hostel, from the bar onsite to the very helpful and... More

This place was average at best - the showering facilities were not good and the rooms were small and very old - the staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good, but these were the best perks. It could be great with a significant refurbishment :)

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
