It's a new building, designed by architects, from blueprints to the construction. It has all what a backpacker needs. Plugs in all the beds, very big and safe lockers inside the room, and even more safe lockers in the -1 floor. The bar is great. Happy hour 1 euro per beer, or 11 euro a beer-card valid to taste 5...

I booked the single room for two nights but cancelled the second night after realising there was music and drinking until 1:30 am and very poor sound proofing. Rude night staff who dismissed my complaints but the older day staff (owners?) gave me a refund for the second night. Also; no soap or towel in my room and you had... More

At first glance this hostel looked quite nice. It's a new building and the rooms are quite nice but we had some issues. We couldn't open our window and our room was very hot so during the day we had to leave our door open if we were in the room at all and at night time we just had... More

Lively and busy hostel. The rooms are brand new, clean, clear white, spacious and bare-bone. In fact, they might give you the feeling you're staying in a psychiatric hospital. Heavy doors slam loud, and the concrete floor carries noise well, so when everybody starts waking up, you will be doing so too. Check-out time is 10.00pm, which is quite early.... More

It's the perfect place to meet new people, as there's a bar and everybody is drinking and having fun in the evening. A new building, with a very nice design. There's a big garden too. The wifi and the room didn't really work though, and it was frustrating.

Snuffel backpacker hostel was a great hostel in brugge. Brand new. Everything was spotless and perfectly clean. Rooms were huge. Lockers in the room were super nice as well as the lockers you can use downstairs after you check out. Nicest city map I've ever gotten from a hostel. Also one of the staff members mapped out a nice walking... More

Stayed two nights. Great hostel the most social I've been to in Europe great for meeting fellow travellers as a solo backpacker. The bar is awsome and always busy! Free walking tour as well which is helpful to meet people. Few minor negatives which stop it getting 5*s, breakfast although free is very basic (toast or cereal) and the check... More

Very confortable, clean and modern hostel. You can use your card key to enter 24/7 to your rooms and lockers. Snuffel Hostel is near the center and in a good street. The atmosphere is good an friendly. It has a bar were you can buy quality or cheap beer.

The hostel is brilliantly located, around 5-7 minutes from the main square. As it is a new site the jostle is modern and very clean, with a large decent prices bar. Wifi was good up in our room on the first floor, plugs on top bunks and the rooms were spacious. However lots of little things took away from the... More

I stayed in a twin room on my own in June 2015, and the room was very clean and spacious. You pay €5 deposit for your linen, and €5 deposit for the keys to lockers in the room. If you want to use a towel there is a cost of €1, and a €5 deposit also. They recently moved to... More
