The youth hostel is quite well located in the city, it has a nice pub on the ground floor and the staff are friendly. The rooms are not so good, however the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. The breakfast is OK, continental style, nothing to elaborated but good enough for the day.

Stayed for 2 nights in a room for 6 people. The wifi signal was very good, too bad there was one jack in the room (and one in the bathroom) so me and my friends were taking turns to charge our phones during the night. We had breakfast with 4 euro. The music is very good, the place is crowded... More

And prices a bit on the top side. Haven't eaten nor stayed at the hostel but it's a good place to grab a beer and enjoy some nice music 🎶. Classic, progressive and psychedelic rock. Toilet is kind of hard to find and some stairs are involved in case your equilibrium is not good. But I guess that's normal for... More

Popped in for a quick drink as it was raining. Beer good enough and cheap enough. Service quick enough. Certainly seen a bit of action and not really my thing. (Pool tables / Pole Dancing!) Would suit a younger crowd (than me)

I would be very cautious about making a reservation here without seeing it first. You may find it is not what you expect and their reservation policy is extremely unforgiving. It really does seem like a bar with a few rooms, as another reviewer described. They will charge you for **multiple days of reservations** even if you decide to stay... More

It was the worst hostel I ve ever been. When I arrived they changed the price of the room arguing It was a rise in the city taxes. It was easy to realize It is not a Hostel, It is a bar with some rooms, so the attention Is focused in the people who buy beers in the bar. They... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Charlie Rockets! My friend and I were touring Bruges on the weekend, we stayed for 3 nights, and all hotels were very expensive. Charlie Rockets was a great option, right downtown, walking distance to everything. The bar on the main floor of the hostel is always bumping, great to meet people! The bar stays... More

First port of call on my London to Budapest cycle trip in early August and arguably the best place I stayed at. Staff are really cool, funny and go out of their way to give you a good time. Great atmosphere at the bar. Full of other travelers who want to get drunk and share stories. Good rock music playing... More

It's a shame this place was so terrible. First impressions last and the staff made us appear invisible when we first arrived, having to wait 15minutes looking at two different staff members before one of them rushed through the process to give us the key. Overpriced pool tables for euro8.50/hr. Didn't bother buying breakfast for Euro4 as I heard it... More

Myself and three friends visited this hostel during an inter-railing trip. It was the only accommodation in Bruges that we could find for under €85 per night (as it was a weekend in peak season). The girl who checked us in was friendly, but we had to wait around twenty minutes as she was juggling between us and bar customers.... More
