If you are looking for a typical hostel, please don't come here. Die Wohngemeinschaft surpass the typical hostel thing. Unique, cool, creative, stylish, are just a few words to describe this hostel. Each room has it's own design. Well, maybe design is not the right word, maybe I should say each room is a different world. We stayed in the... More

Beside of quite big locker the bed itself is quite wide, so you can keep some of your belongings there without any problems. The location is giod, the facilities are clean, the... More

I am impressed about what these hostel operators have created here. They raised hostelling to a new level. Whereas other hostels offer beds and a place to stay, combined with some community (which is all great), the guys here have created little worlds, if not even planets, one out of each room. It looks as if some very creative people... More

I arrived during the gamecom, and I couldn't find any place to stay. This hostel was also full, but the staff were extremely helpful. They called around some other places and sorted me out. I couldn't be more grateful. The hostel is also decorated really well :)

Single room was small but that's ok. Good wifi. Very clean including shared bathrooms. Friendly helpful staff. Close to the lovely Brussels area and transport to sights. It's not that far to walk to the Dom if you like. Bar downstairs is popular. Discount if you're staying in the hostal.

Staff were really helpful and friendly, we arrived earlier than expected and were able to check-in straight away which was a bonus! The room 'Telma' was great, plenty of room to socialise before going out, though I love that there is a living room on the same floor as reception where you can help yourself to free tea and coffee...

Overall a decent place to stay for the price; though not a particularly social hostel. Staff were helpful if not exactly friendly; did the job but little more. Loved the convenience of the honesty bar/fridge and having a common room area is always a nice bonus. We were a little concerned about the noise on checking in as our room... More

We had an amazing experience with this hostel. The staff were superfriendly and did not hesitate to guide us to get a better experience of the city. The rooms are marvelous. Ours was a lego room! There were legos on the walls and you can built your own lego structure. About 20-25 minutes walk to the old town from rhe... More

Not a bad hostel, it's clean, relatively modern. My negatives might be your positives however; the rooms have segregated bunk "shelves" for lack of a better word, each equipped with a blind which gives great privacy but segregates you from your room mates - I'm not sure I ran in to a single room mate in my 2 nights here....

We didn't spend log in Die Wohngemeinschaft, as we arrived late and left the next morning. We were really impressed with the room we had, it was spacious, clean and had great windows. The shower was really good too - clean, good pressure and nice and hot! We didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that, but enjoyed a free... More
