Bruges is lovely and the Canal View accommodation is in a very pleasant location. It took 45 minutes to walk there from the railway station and a taxi return cost E8.40. Our room 12 was nice but small with a canal view and the shower/toilet was as small as it could be and was elevated about 9” from the ground which may not suit anybody with mobility problems. Sound proofing could be better, you could hear traffic noise from a distant main road. Tea making facilities cost E5 per day ( honestly) and internet ( which is poor) a one off payment of E5. We were surprised to be asked to pay the city charge on leaving which was a was E7.5 for 3 nights for a couple but they would charge you to breath in Bruges if they could. On arrival use of the railway station toilet was 50c per person, even museums often charged for toilet use after paying the entrance fee. Nor is food and alcohol cheap. A no frills 3 course meal costs from E15 and a half litre of beer E6, that’s for 3% proof and the price goes up with the alcohol content! Expect to pay E20 or more for a bottle of wine with your meal. There is a bar near the youth hostel (go right) that charges E4 for a large beer but the place is pretty dreary. Uk sports are shown at another pub
( go slightly left and up ). If you intend to visit the museums and other attractions a City Card is the best option. E40 per person for 2 days may seem expensive but the attractions are overpriced and you can easily spend a lot more than E40 in 2 days. A canal trip is included with the City Card. It doesn’t last long and ours consisted of going forwards and backwards to the same spot.
