We arrived very early to this hostel as we had an early train from Paris. The staff here were very nice and helpful. Even though we couldn't get into our room until 3pm, they offer luggage storage that has CCTV. They have a beautiful courtyard to sit in with a fountain and comfortable reclining chairs. The hostel also has their own bar which opens at 5pm and serves delicious Belgian beers and food. The bartender was incredibly friendly and made a 'night in' at the hostel fun by blaring music, introducing travellers, and suggesting beers. The rooms were comfortable, light and airy. Each bed has its own reading light, which is nice so the people in your room don't keep you up. The breakfasts are free and have a lot to offer. Fantastic bread and cheese! The only reason I didn't give this Hostel 5 stars is due to the distance from the city centre (although trams/metro are easily accessible), but the walk uphill after a night of drinking can be a bit tiring. The bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner as well. But that's really nitpicking....I would definitely suggest this place to anyone travelling to Brussels!
