Didn't stay here but just popped in for a drink on the way to Ribs ‘n Beer. The Ritz it isn't but had a good selection of beers at a reasonable price. Wouldn't recommend a special journey here but a worthwhile visit if you’re just passing.

There is a great vibe in the hostel, helped by a lively and very reasonably priced bar serving some great Belgium brews. The staff are very helpful and friendly too. Aside from that the whole place just felt a bit run down, a lick of paint and some new bedding would go a long way for a start. Breakfast was... More

My stay here started out pretty good great, good location, it has a bar downstairs and they had a 1 euro beer happy hour when we arrived! Very nice! The guy at reception was friendly and the first day we rented cheap, nice bikes from here. The room was a 4 bed "ensuite" which I reserved after reading the review... More

I shared a 4 bed room situated on the first floor. There is no lift and the stairs are very narrow so watch out if you are heavy loaded. To reach the room it was necesary to pass through another room which was far from convenient. The linen was clean but the shared facilities wasn´t. Breakfast is included, toast, cereals,... More

This is exactly what you expect from a youth hostel: no glamour but friendliness. The rooms are simple but clean and the beds are comfortable. Pay attention though to the possibility of a live concert in the bar below: progreat enjoyment for some, nuisance for others. One may have an issue with one of the rooms which access is through...

I love, love this hostel.. It's clean, secure, and the location is great.. The bar downstairs is really laid back and sells good cheap beer.. The breakfast is good but needs more variety.. The staff is really friendly and helpful.. The free walking tour they had was fun and informative.. Kai was a great guide..

Had a great time here, really cheap beer and a laid back atmosphere. Definitely recommended for backpackers looking to drink and meet other people. Highly recommend the optional walking tour and beer tasting run by Kai!

nice people, great beer! decent accommodations. Visited in spring of 2007, while studying abroad. Bruges is one of my most favorite cities in the world. You can rent bikes from Snuffel, which we rode to Zeebrugge, along the canal, to the North Sea. Great place!

The hostel is not far from the Markt and there is a bus stop in front of the hostel. A laundromat is beside the hostel as well. The room was comfortable enough but the noise from my room was unbearable. A lot of cars passing by the road at night and a lot of noises were made by people on... More

Just returned from my tour of Europe. Brugges is in my mind, the quintisential medieval European city. The canals, cobbeled streets, beautiful church's..a must see IMO. On to Sunffel. Love the place. It's a hostel so don't expect the Ritz. The staff are super friendly, The rooms and facilities were clean and in good order. The bar in the lobby... More
