Don't go here or anywhere in Brussels.

Posted Jun 5, 2017
The hotel itself wasn't the worst I've stayed at. It wasn't too far from the nearest tram stop about 10 minutes id say. My biggest problem with this place was that there was no working air conditioning!! On top of that the vending machine for the water was not working so we were trapped in this oppressive heat with no water to drink and not allowed to open any windows. The heat was very bad it was actually hotter in the hotel than it was outside and along with the humidity I could barely sleep.

Dear guest, Thank you very much for the feedback. We Appreciate the fact you took the time to share your experience with everybody. First of all we want to apologize concerning the hotness in the room. We had a black out of the cooling system, and even we tried hard it was impossible to fix it for several days. Really sorry about that. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short. If you give us a chance to earn back your trust, I can assure you that we will do our best to give you the great hotel experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of. Sincerely the staff

Very nice stay in Brussels

Posted Jan 23, 2017
Pros: The location, it's absolutely perfect
Cons: The beds, but, they only are initially uncomfortable, we both slept quite well. Also, not the hotel's fault, but the closest tram stop is closed.
Location: Lots of great places to eat and drink, very cool art scene, ethnic neighborhoods and cool architecture.
We have just returned after 2 nights at this hotel/hostel. We are in our late 30's and while most people were much younger, we never felt out of place. Totally cool staff and vibe throughout. We stayed in room 417, far at the end, away from the noise of the elevators and for two people who like to go to sleep at 10 and wake up at 7, this was perfect for us. It was very quiet. The room was very large and suitable for 3 people. It had a lovely shower and toilet area, a very comfy lounging couch and two twin beds, which weren't the most comfortable, but we did sleep just fine. The area is safe during the day and at night, we walked all over and never felt unsafe. The Molenbeek area behind and around the hotel is filled with little Moroccan gems, some great bakeries and cafes. If you walk up to the next bridge and cross at the blue lights, there is a cafe walvis which has nice food and drinks and down the way is Belgian Beer Project, down another block is a small Moraccan and Belgian bakery where you can get a croissant, coffee and oj for €3,50 which was very good and Cafe Barbeton, which, on Wednesday and Friday has free tapas with the purchase of a drink. We had the most amazing homemade vegetarian food and kept going back to the cafe so good. The Grand Place is about 10-15 minutes walk down a lovely street, and Midi train station is a 15 minute tram ride on tram 82, or a 40 minute walk. The tram stop, Triangle, which is near the hostel is closed until June 2017

This is an Hostel and not a hotel

Posted Dec 22, 2016
For the price it's great. The staffs were polite and useful. Other than this, it was an experience I will hurriedly forget. Cobwebs, dirty linen, drunken people sleeping on the hall way, stairs and even the bar. The list goes on and on.

Decent Place to Stay

Posted Dec 15, 2016
Let's be honest, it's a hostel with some contained rooms. With this said, expect people to be noisey in the hallways earlier in the night. Aside from this, it's a great place to stay. Staff are lovely, short walk to the Christmas markets and Grand Place. The shower temperature did fluctuate rather annoyingly and the beds definitely weren't the most comfortable I've had.
