Liked: The bar has been kept traditional and in keeping with its surroundings so much that the locals even booze here.

Disliked: Not much, St Christophers chain does offer a sanitized experience of dorm rooms though.

Liked: well, it was the cheapest accomodation in Bruges, but otherwise if you can make it just return day trip from somewhere else.

Disliked: Confusing to find your room in labirinth of the house. NO INTERNET in the room!!! It's quite a walk from the centre and from the station even more further. Also luggage storage is charged! Any other even small hostel will do it for free for you. Bar beers are so overpriced. I had cheaper beer in some bar in centre. They lock reception during the night, so if you need wifi at 2 am, forget it. Shower n toilet are so-so cleaned. Mine run out of paper already at midnight and sink in shower kept being filled with water for an hour after you shower, so next person using it won't be pleased

21 June 2015 Naruhiko would recommend this property

Liked: Very goo hostel with very clean bathrooms. Every single bed has its own curtains, two wall plugs and light which helps a lot when you come back from your whole day back from walking around the city and need to charge your devices without having to compete with others to do this. Breakfast is also very good, with bread, cream cheese, nutella, coffee, juice and cereals.

Disliked: Wi-Fi is not available in the rooms, which is a huge drawback for travelers who need to search things or buy tickets late night. Also, having to pay to keep your things safe in the luggage room is not the best you could do for backpackers who are trying the best to save money.

Liked: - good location - some of the staff were friendly

Disliked: - hallways smelt like sewage - bar staff were unhelpful - there was a leak in the ceiling in my bedroom which left a big puddle on the floor - 5 plug sockets between 8 people in the bedrooms - shower peels your skin off and you can't control the temperature - there was a side door in the bedroom and anyone could come in and out even if they weren't staying in the hostel - a lot of the lockers didn't lock even with a padlock on them - was woken up at 9am because of staff loudly throwing bottles into a bin for 20 minutes - wifi doesn't work in the bedrooms and you can only use it when you're in the bar/reception area. - if you want to use the wifi at night it's going to be near impossible to find a seat - wifi is sketchy as hell, every 20 minutes you get disconnected from it

Liked: The free breakfast was decent, the location was just far enough out of the center but still close (everything in Bruges is close though, I walked all the way to the train station from the hostel on my last day). Having a sink in the room is handy.

Disliked: no kitchen which can make it very expensive because you have to eat out. Showers were not great, low water pressure and on a timer so you have to keep pushing the knob in, but if you are not high maintenance it is not a big deal.

Liked: Excellent location, close to the station, bars, and red light district. Staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Free breakfast in the morning is worth waking up for.

Disliked: The bar can get *extremely* crowded over the weekends leading to drunken brawls often. Drinks are a little pricey.

Liked: The location for the hostel, though not in the center, is actually perfect. It's only 10 minutes walking to the center (Markt Square) but far enough away that there are a few bars and grocery stores that haven't hiked up their prices for tourists. It's also a really pretty walk! The best part is the open atmosphere of all the people though, as a solo traveler it's great when all the backpackers are really open and friendly. I was in a pod dorm, and the beds were comfy and spacious- the curtains did block out a lot and the bathrooms were always clean.

Disliked: The staff weren't that great. If you asked them a question they acted annoyed that you had bothered them. It was really confusing trying to find the actual reception, because the address listed (number 145) is actually the luggage and night reception, and three doors down (outside) is the actual reception/common room. Two slightly annoying things are that you have re-activate your swipe card every day and sometimes the hallways smelled really bad.

Liked: Great atmosphere, social and fun.

Disliked: The setup is clearly made to fit this old building, but it means the showers can be a hike from your room and getting around the building is a bit odd. Also the showers do not run water continually, you have to repeatedly press a button for water.

Furthermore the we participated to the free tour around bruges (awesome) and we rented bicycles directly from the hostel !
