“Spacious but dirty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

We spent the weekend in flat 3, spending a bit extra for the lounge and kitchen as we were ona a special break with my sister and her husband. Initially the flat looks quite flash, but on closer inspection you find that the laminate floor isn't glued down and slides around, the carpets are old and not fitted properly and the whole place needs a deep clean (or even just a vacuum wuld be nice). Also, nowhere does it mention that the flat is situated above the entrance to their new club - although the club itself was silent, the revellers leaving in the middle of the night were not, and were right outside our window - two out of the three nights I had to use earplugs (the third night was Sunday and the club wasn't in use). If you don't mind low levels of hygiene and noise in the night this is great value for Bruges, but I'm not sure we'd stay again.

A great hostel just a short walk to the centre of Brugge. The staff were friendly especially at the reception. We enjoyed the bar and the food at Sacre Coeur was good. The private room was clean, well sized and warm. The toilets and shower area were also very clean.

There are some good bars along the way as you walk to and from the centre that are worth popping in to. I would stay here again when i go back to Brugge.

The hostel is located near the main square of Brugge in a tipical medieval street. The staff was kind and helpful with me, the reception is a different building from the dorm but very close so not a real issue unless it's heavily snowing. The place looks great from outside but the interior looks a bit run down but not too bad. There are signs reading they clean the toilet very often and if you notice dirty areas you can call for have it cleaned. They organize several activities (city tour, pub crawling etc. but not on sunday) which could be good to socialize and have fun. There's a pub next to it where guests have discounts on purchase and enjoy a couple of beers with other travellers and also have a warm meal. Free WIFI, good breakfast. I dunno if you can get better places to stay but for me it was good. I would come back there.

Stayed in a 2 bed ensuite room with my 13 year old son. Lovely friendly and helpful staff, room was very clean, bedding fine, shower was great. No toiletries in the room so bring your own. Food in the Sacre Coeur was good, ate there two evenings, not the cheapest but still good value and tasty and a really good atmosphere. It's a very echo-ey place and we did get woken up about 3am by other guests returning and just walking upstairs and opening and closing doors. Breakfast was basic - boiled eggs, rolls, cornflakes, hot drinks and orange juice. Overall really pleased with this choice and considering what you pay in a bog standard faceless hotel - this place is well worth it!

The hostel is very well located close of everything. The staff is nice and can help you if you have any question. All the main attraction of Brugge are walking distance from the Hostel.

The front desk is close during the night and it open only at 9h in the morning. So if you have any problem during the night it,s not very helpful.

The included breakfast is not the best but it's ok.

The free WiFi work perfectly if you are at the reception or in the bar, but it don't work in the room.

The size of the room is good and they are clean. The size of the bathroom, if you get a private one, is very small. Even the shower size is small. Guy you might not fit in it. You might want to use the shared shower.

The bar and restaurant at the hostel is average. You will find better restaurant downtown. If you want a great bar go to The Crash about 5 min walk from the hostel. The beer is cheap ant the music very good.

I will suggest this Hotel if plan to stay in Brugge for one or two night.

If you need an hostel into the centre of Bruges this is in a nice position.
You can find here big shoawer room and a very nice dinner pub linked to the hostel (WC are shared - from the hostel you can open a door if you need to go to the wc and in front of you exit the wc going into the pub!!)
You may found some spider or beetles and you have to pay for internet but the location and the pub are good (even if not so cheap)

I usually avoid hostel chains like st christophers but becaue everything in town was booked up so I had no choice.... but 25 EUROS FOR A 12 PERSON BED ROOM!???! who do you think you are??! Thats ridiculously priced for Bruges! I had a quick look on the internet later and saw average price for dormitories in any other hostel in town is 16euros for a 6 bed!!!!!!! so lets get started- its such a stale un homey and unwelcoming feeling there. everything is white and glass but in a medieval city like bruges its just horrible! staff were ok but did not look happy to be there and deffinently did not offer any extra help or chitchat. The reception staff were especially uninterested (except the bubbly belgian girl who seemed to work days in the week) the rooms smelled; the bar was boring and location HORRIBLE in such a small town you couldnt be further from the station or city centre! free wifi but no free computers to use, i hqte this qs it just encourqges flashpaskers and extremely unfair!!!
NOT RECOMMENDED;;;;;;;;;;;;;;EVER! (unless your a flashpacker, then its great for you..)
