There is plenty of games for free in the hostel, a table tennis for free, private bathrooms inside each room, nice colors, very spacious the breakfast was great. It is a little bit far from the comte de flandre metro station but a 10 minutes walk, no lundry but there is a lundry nearby,

Stayed here during my study abroad last week of traveling. The hostel itself is okay, with bathrooms and showers in the room, but the area where it is located is not the nicest one. It is located in a more residential community and we witnessed a couple of street fights when we were there, so be careful. It is okay...

The location is not far away from city center. Normally i went to the main attractions which are close to grand palace by walk. Maybe around 20-30mins. But it is near Arabic community as well. It was peak time for travelling, and the hostel was full house. I made two great friends from here. We are from three different continents...

DIfficult to find unless you are using GPS. A more mixed population in this area of Brussels that might make it tough for a single woman to venture forth in the evening. Not too far from the tube, however. Friendly staff. Has parking for RV's in a very secure parking area for your car if you have one.

A basic hostel type accommodation. I had a 2 bedded room with on suite but many rooms are dormitories without bathrooms. It is clean and well maintained but not facilities to talk about. It does have a very pleasant garden area that is nice to sit in when the weather is good. They do a basic continental breakfast. If you...

This place was OK, I hadn't really planned to stop off in Brussels but decided to do so at the last minute en route from Amsterdam to Paris, so I very quickly and randomly chose this hostel. This was veeery different from some of the much more party oriented hostels I stayed at so far on this trip so not...

The hostel itself is very nice. The room I was in had four beds (two bunks), an en suite bathroom and lockers. The room was very simple, but comfy. Free breakfast in the morning was very good. The TV room was broken and apart from the free wifi there wasn't much to do. In general I'd stay here again but...

The place itself is ok, and seems secure with 2 doors to get through with a card or to be buzzed in. The rooms are good provided your company is tidy, and quiet. The beds good enough, but I wasn't supplied with blanket cover, only 2 sheets, this time of year I wasn't complaining. The Internet was good, but if...
