    Chambre sans Artiste:))

    Check-in was at 16.00 not 15.00.For basic stay in Bruxelles nothing to complain. Probably cleaner was trying to access my room around 7am-8am day after...I was still in.Very good location and walking distance to old town.I had a single room,french balcony and sink in the room.Friendly receptionist.I would recommend anyway.

    Not very far from city center, very close to Botanique Metro station. The lobby was good, connected to a bar. Received a pair of blankets on arrival. The room was clean, there were 6 beds in room, all clean. The bathroom and toilet were clean. Excellent breakfast, Bread, spreads, corn flakes, milk, cheese, meat slices, yogurt, coffee/tea, orange juice. The breakfast seating area was quite large and the staff were doing a good job cleaning the plates/bowls. There are several flyers (local tours etc) available at reception.

    My major issue is that I got bed bug bites on my first night. I recognized them because I've gotten them in the past. The other people in my room lucked out and didn't get bitten. I got moved to another room and the man at the desk let me do laundry for free, although when I had to get a token to use the dryer, another man was at the desk and seemed annoyed that I was allowed to do laundry for free. Uh, dude, your place has BEDBUGS. I didn't ask for a refund, so I think free laundry is a fair request, considering I had to wash out any possible bedbugs from my clothes. Otherwise it would have been a good stay! Lockers are provided, the breakfast is good, location is good, price wasn't bad, and the common area has a cool bar.

    The hostal is alright. The charger next to my bed did not work so i had to charge it somewhere else. The sound coming from the main are was too loud and could not sleep most days. The area around the hostal felt unsafe and sketchy. Overall really clean and staff very friendly.

    Good stay. Hopeless wifi.

    Second time stay at the hostel. Really good value for money especially for a short stay. It is clean and staff was nice and friendly. Only thing which is lacking is wifi signal (which was frankly terrible and had no wifi in room on the third floor). There is no lift which was not a problem for me. Rooms overlook a courtyard which can be quite noisy late evening.
