The hostel is about 20 minute walk from the centre of Brussels. It is locate in an area which was quite intimidating at night however, if you are not alone it was fine. The hostel was very clean with welcoming staff. We had a private room for two and it as a very comfortable stay. Heating was good and the...

Hi, thanks for the super nice feedback. The hostel is in a popular residential district and so there are no many people walking during the night but you just need to do 5 minutes walking and you are in the Canal of Brussels where you have lively places. Thanks for everything you said in your review, hope to see you...

I stayed here for 3 nights. The first night was fine, but when I came back the next day I found someone else's suitcase next to my bed (which I had stayed in the night before). I figured it was a mistake, moved her stuff and went to bed. I was woken up at 2 am by a girl who...

The staff were quite cooperative and friendly and associated a private 6-bed room to our group of 5. The hostel is not so central but that's not a major problem during the day as you can reach the main attractions within a 30 minute walk or through a nearby metro (5 minutes away), during the night however, you do not...

It was clean and neat hostel, 40 minutes walking from the city center. The breakfast was rather varied. The staff were friendly and polite. I don know why, but there was NO detergent for hand washing in the toilet. The internet access in the room was difficult. The water's tempreture for shower was not enough warm and suitable for the...

This is one of the few hostels I stayed in Europe with all amenities that a hostel should have. They even have a fully functional self service kitchen. However the hostel is more frequented by school kids but if you're just looking for a place to crash, it's ideal. It's a little far from the city centre so one might...

This was my first stay in a hostel in Europe. It was nothing like I imagined it to be (in a good way). I expected a claustrophobic atmosphere but this was everything opposite. I had booked the place a week in advance for one night for an extremely reasonable price. The breakfast at this place is amazing, you have to...

I spent 3 days in Brussel with a group of Erasmus students at "Generation Europe" and I was really surprised about the quality of the food. Sabine is a great chef and she prepared a great Lasagna friday night. I felt like I was back in Italy. I really raccomand the restaurant service in the hostel, you won't be disappointed...

We have booked a double room for 58 €, with "towels for rent" as clearly stated everywhere in their web pages. Beside the very small room, there were no towels available for rent when we arrived, and they didn't offer us any alternative or solution to this problem. We decided to leave and to look for another accomodation at our...
