Guys, its a hostel! Not a fancy flashpacker you'll find in Paris or London. A well-run, cheap and well-positioned hostel with a great bar, good breakfast and hot showers. We were given a great town map on arrival and thoroughly enjoyed the 5 beers on the beer card. Staff are helpful. Yes the walk through the bar to and from... More

Showers felt like doing a polar dip in Lake Ontario in February. (Canadians will understand) so damn cold!!!!!!! Rooms weren't bad but limited outlets. Lockers though we're 5$ deposit and had outlets in some of them. Location wasn't bad. Could take the bus to the train station. Also includes breakfast but it's just toast and cereal. If you're a light... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and 4 days on a backpack trip. The hostel can be reached in about 10 minutes by bus (number 3 and 13) from the main station of Bruges. The bus stop is next (5 steps) to the hostel. The hostel staff is helpful, patient and happy to help though at times may be overloaded... More

I was greeted by an empty reception area when i entered. It seemed like the hostel was managed by a single person. And to reach out to her, a bell had to be rung. The receptionist was pleasant and helpful though. The place was slightly far from the citycentre, but can be covered by walking. The accommodation was decent, but... More

It's cheap, comfortable, nice enough rooms and comfortable beds. The staff are friendly. If you stay in the room above the bar as I did, you hear very loud music till about 12:30pm Friday and Saturday-if you wanted to sleep it's impossible- then it's turned right down but you can still hear it. Over all it's a very nice place... More

Conveniently located, cheap accommodation in Brugges. Its a hostel with a lively bar. Rooms with bunk beds, shared showers and toilets, breakfast included in the price and a kitchen if you want to make your own. Friendly staff and clean. What more can you ask of a hostel. I believe it is moving to a new location next month.

Snuffel is in a great location close to centre of Bruges. The atmosphere is very welcoming and relaxed, the (included) breakfast very adequate and bunk beds are comfy. The rooms and bedding very clean and bar lively. Small downside was that another room of four people had to come through our 8 bed room to get to theirs. Minor issue... More

a warm & friendly hostel for backpackers. this is NOT a hotel so make sure you read the label before arriving with expectations beyond your budget! the showers ARE a bit of a schlep, but more convenient than a shower block on a camping site, for instance and they are powerful and well kept. there could be more charging points...

A basic hostel that is clean, cheap and very friendly. Has everything you need for a comfortable but basic stay. Theirs a kitchen there if you wish to cook yourself. Only hassle is the showers that are in a separate place to the dorms but for £18 a night you can't really complain ;-).. Staff are very friendly and helpful.... More

This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. The showers are in a separate building. You must cross the bar, the kitchen and a yard and climb the stairs to enter that building. There is only 1 toilet per floor (20 people approx.). You can only charge your electronics downstairs, in the bar. Horribly distributed. The breakfast is... More
