Right... It was really cheap. It looked really cheap. Everything was really, really, REALLY cheap inside there. In fact, you have what you've paid for. So... no regrets in the end. Not bad location, near a bus stop who brings you in 13 steps in the middle of Brussels.

Very nice staff. I slept in a four-bed room. My night was not very restful because some people went through our room during the night and my roommates had to wake up very early in the morning. Wifi only in the kitchen/living room. Good value for the price of the night.

It seems this hotel not only misplaced our booking but that of other hotel guests too. Out of frustration the receptionist seemed to accept we had a genuine booking with booking.com nad gave us a room. Aside from checking in the location was great. Oh, and teh WIFI didn't work in our room.

Hostel Louise is very Eco conscious. They don't waste toilet paper because they don't give you any. There's no water waste because the taps don't work. They save power by using the linen closest as a fridge, the fridge closet also doubles as a locker. You may need a locker because the windows don't lock or close. They save energy... More
