Hi people! I've been in this Hostel when I visited Brussel in Feb.2019. I went to the city to meet my cousin and his GF, but they had another place and I stayied there alone. I loved the area where.the Hostel os located. I could not enjoy more because I was always with my cousin. At the last day I was there I learned they are very very close to a nice place where there are lot of bars, restaurants and other kinds of stores. It's a crowed.place with young and beautiful people. My room at the Hostel was cool and there was a Toillet too but at the same floor there were more Toillets. The problem was the cleaning and Bath area size. In other Hostels I've been (very good ones!!), the housekeeper cleaned the rooms everyday and put more Toillet papers and also paper towels. But in this Hostel, NO! The Bath area was too small and inside there was no.place to hang the towels or the Soap or anything you need. The shower was terrible because the water gun was very weak and after some minutes stopped by itself. Take a shower there was little bit complicated for me. After the shower the floor got in general wet but there was nothing I could use to make it dry. So, the mess and dirty got more and more day by day! But... It was not only problems. This hostel had the BEST breakfast I've ever tryied in hostels!! They offer everyday different things. Different kinds of bread, cheese, ham, juices, fruits and cereals! And they had also small portions, so I alwyas got 1 or 2 small packs of cheese to eat later. The breakfast area was nice and from the windows it was possible to see the street from the top (the Hostel is located in a Hill). The view was nice and make me feel that I had to know the city. Ah! The guys at the Frontdesk were very friendly. One of them even could speak portuguese. I appreciated more because he said that he was learning portuguese and spanish to better comunicate with all.brazilians and argentinians they have as guests. Isn't it cute? (rsrsrss) Well, the place is nice. The area out of the rooms is very good. They have a nice elevator so you don't need suffer with your luggage. The only problem I saw was the lack of cleaning! But I recomend because the price was ok, the rooms and beds very good and the breakfast... No words!!!! Next time I visit Brussel will stay there for sure!!!!

Its clean and spacious, lovely outdoor sitting area, a kitchen for guests to cook their meals in (a lidl supermarket is 5 min. walk), excellent breakfast with good coffee (!!!) relatively good internet. I staid in a spacious and modern 4 beds female dorm It’s 20 min. from the centre, 10 min. to metro. Very helpful staff, a great value for money. Who needs more in life?

I had a pleasant stay in a 4-bed female dorm. Breakfast was very good for a hostel and the room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was fine and the shower had hot water. Beds were very comfortable. The restaurant/bar is a little lacking and it's not a great area to walk at night but overall this is a great place to stay in Brussels.

The hostel location is at 25 minute walking to city centre and a little far from metro. bus stations are not that far. The rooms are spacious, clean. The lobby is huge with baby foot table, computer,... . You can select from the menu with very affordable prices. The breakfast is not that varied, cheese and ham, yogurt, eggs, banana, orange, corn flakes,milk, juice And tea. However the breakfast is included in the price. So it's really great. You can keep your luggage at the luggage room. You will put 5€ deposit in case you lost the key. Once you will give them back the key you will take the 5€. The staff is extremely helpful. Free Wi-Fi. Highly recommended. Excellent value and service at a low cost.

Great hostel. Location is about 20 minutes walk to the city centre. I stayed in a 6 bed male dorm, was clean and comfortable. Nice to have a shower and toilet in the room, the shower was quite dirty when I used it, but that is probably due to my room-mates rather than the hostel. Breakfast was very nice, staff were friendly and approachable. Would stay again, just make sure the location suits you though as its not in the city centre.
