The Snuffel is a short bus ride from Bruges station and is perfectly situated in the old town. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is free and decent and as the day goes on the lounge area turns into a happening bar with a great selection of local beers to sample. It's walking distance from everything in the old town...

It was a very very good hostel. Staff were quite nice and helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious with nicely located lockers and perfect wifi connection. Hostel even offered free breakfast service, although they had no obligation to do so, which was absolutely perfect for student travelers:) It was really nice of them. Location and the atmosphere of the hostel...

Nice, clean, comfortable hostel in the city centre. 5 minute walk from the Grand Place, easy to reach by car. Nice modern hostel, friendly staff, ideal if your traveling on a budget. Nice selection off drinks and snacks in the bar at reasonable prices.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private ensuite for a couple of nights while backpacking through Europe. The room itself is super basic - it has the necessities as in a bed and shower but that's it. It really lacks the warmth being undecorated and although there are windows in the room, we had to keep the blinds closed...

Very clean, new and secure hostel. Love the all female dorm option and its barely a 10 min walk along stunning canals to city center. Room is massive and so are the lockers. Breakfast included! I would totally stay here again.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, excellent bar and the location was perfect to explore Brugge. Bike rentals were cheap and I'd highly encourage it. Also, their beer card is a great way to experience some locals beers easily and cheaply. Great place for backpacking.

Snuffel Hostel is a large, clean, modern hostel with large rooms, good showers, and a fantastic bar. Even the locals go to the bar just to hang out. The free breakfast is great and that is also in the bar area. There is a common kitchen and hang-out space in the hostel as well, but I didn't use either one....

Very clean, although my room was very far away from the showers and very close to the stairs which made it a bit noisey. Huge lockers in the room with plenty of space for all your belongings. Heaps of free, cheap or inclusions, free wifi, breakfast (basic) included and bike hire was very cheap. I found the reception staff to...
