    The room was nice and clean with its own bathroom. Common area is nice, the breakfast for 4€ very good. The staff was very kind. The location is very good as well.

    Great place, we loved the athmosphere in the common area, so chill and cozy. The private double room was great, we had a canopy bed, so romantic! We really appreciated the fact that in the room, which had a lot of paintings on the walls and also in the bathroom, there was also an indication of a classical music song to be played in order to enjoy the identity room at its fullest. Also, we absolutely loved the breakfast!

    The hostel owners went above and beyond for me. Communication was great. I arrived later than expected and had to email them just before their check-in closing time to inform them, however they responded very quickly and made sure there was a way for me to get in. You can tell that they want to give travellers the best experience as there are info and maps for all other major cities in Belgium. Rooms and showers were clean. Breakfast included fruits, cereal, oats, cookies, coffee, hot choc, and eggs.

    The top bunks didn't have access to charging ports. It's not very safe to leave charging ports on the ground where they are closer to other travellers than they are to me :(

    Nice hostel with well-equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge area. Room was warm and clean. While they were nice, there were times I had to queue for a shower as there was only one on my floor.

    Not a huge negative, but the hostel is located past the red light district. It didn’t feel too unsafe but I was weary of walking around the area alone at night.

    The rooms were clean and nice and the bathroom was also very nice. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the WiFi worked really well.

    The mattress was a bit thin for my liking, and I would have liked at least paper towels to dry my hands with in the bathroom. Make sure you bring a small towel! I also had a pretty annoying person in my room who turned on the ceiling light at 11pm when three people were asleep in the room, but that is not the hostel’s fault.
