Although difficult to get to if you don't know the area and aren't willing to pay for a taxi, we found the Hotel Phenix to be great value for money and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful and provided us with information on how best to get to attractions using public transport.
The Hotel Phenix is in a noisy area and traffic could be heard from our room which backed onto the main road, but most rooms were facing the other direction so this would not be as much of a problem for most. Rooms were small but very clean and comfortable.
Not many restaurants/attractions nearby but a 15 minute walk from Gare l'ouest with several bus routes stopping within a 5 minute walk. Public transport was easier to navigate than in UK so was not a problem.

Short walk from the centre of Brussels; modernly renovated, clean with a small bar and a good breakfast. Okay, this hotel isn't going to win any prizes - but bearing in mind the money they charge it is a fantastic place to stay just 10 minutes walk from the Grand Place.
Some people have complained about the area - it is on the edge of an immigrant area, and there are a lot of youths and males hanging out on the street, but that is what North Africans tend to do! They are all pretty friendly though and there is little reason to be worried. On the plus side the local food is incredible, and you can get a brochette meal for €8 - including a little dessert, so broaden your mind and have a wee touch of Morocco in your Brussels experience.
If you are on a budget, this place is an excellent option!
