My husband and are relatively young, and we travel a lot. We're accustomed to staying in hotels and hostels around the world, and we know that not every hotel is perfect. However, I looked at the Bauhaus's website and the place looked great. They have both a hostel and a hotel, and we chose the hotel because we were told it would be quieter than the hostel. When we got there, the staff were helpful, cheerful and friendly and it was in a terriffic location, right in the heart of Bruges. Then we saw our room. I will admit I have seen worse, but we did pick the hotel over the hostel and expected it to be decent! The carpet was disgusting, the beds were extremely uncomfortable, the room was dirty and dingy in general, and they had neglected to tell us that while we did have a closet sized shower in our room, the entire floor shared one single toilet at the end of the hall. That was entertaining. We stayed in room number 62, which was upstairs. The entire hallway smelled of urine and mildew, and it was cold too! In the wee hours of the morning we were woken up by loud neighbors and it sounded like the walls were made of paper. The breakfast in the morning was cereal, milk, coffe, tea, rolls and hardboiled eggs. Not too bad. I have to say, the sheets and towels were clean and we did have a dry roof over our heads and the staff was very nice and the location was super. Luckily we were only staying one night, because although this hostel wasn't horrible, it sure wasn't worth the almost 50 euro we paid for the night. Next time we go to Bruges (which was the best city I've ever been to, I loved it!!!) we will find another hostel!
