Liked: Free PCs with Internet! Also, no additional charge to join some backpacking/hostel system, which annoys the crap out of me from a previous Bruges experience.

Disliked: Hard to find, partially due to the city not having decent signposting of streets, and also on the maps dotted round the city - could not find the street!

Liked: Nice location.

Disliked: Staff was horrible. Never at the reception desk. When we checked in a drunk local was being obnoxious and wouldn't leave us alone. Staff wasn't willing to help with anything. Wifi does not work whatsoever. Only two computers for the entire hostel.
