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

I met up with an English friend at the bar in Snuffel Hostel which was where I was staying. He hadn't booked a room anywhere in Bruges that night but after speaking briefly with the manager he was able to secure a room later in the evening, which is a flexibility I rarely see in hostels today. The owner is... More

I stayed at Snuffel for 4 nights and it is a great hostel. The bar has a great atmosphere and is a great place to meet locals and socialize and find out more about the city, the rooms are very clean, warm and a good place too meet new people. Staff were friendly, helpful and will get you any information... More

I really enjoyed this hostel! I'll be honest, I first chose it for the name, it's just cute. The hostel was great. The room was up some pretty windy steep stairs and the beds were a bit old, but it was cosy. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The showers were not good. I was only here for one night... More
