Here's the thing about this place, it's a €14/night hostel in Brussels. It's not The Ritz-Carlton. I actually worked foThe Ritz for many years, and have stayed. I've also stayed in and absolutely awful hostels. If you're looking for Hilton accommodations, this is not the place for you. However, if you're traveling on a budget, this is the cheapest hostel in Brussels. It's not incredibly hard to find if you can read address numbers. It doesn't look like much, but you're not paying for it to. It has huge dorm rooms, clean showers that aren't push button, I should add. The beds are very comfortable. I stayed for four nights. No bed bugs. Clean bedding, which is changed every day if you like. Plenty of hot water. Clean bathrooms. The bathrooms and showers are not located in the rooms as this is a hostel. There's free wifi. They say it doesn't work in the rooms, but mine did just fine. There is a shared sink in the rooms. The water is potable. TV in the rooms, too. The staff is lovely, especially Adi and Danny. There is a kitchen! I loved that! No fridge, but there's everything else you need to cook. Microwave, pots, pans, cookware. People even leave condiments! There's also vending machines, one that even dispenses Jupiler Beer! There's a few convenience stores nearby that sell everything to make a dinner meal. Overall, for €14 a night, I really can't understand why people hate on this place. It's warm, friendly, clean and cheap. There's no curfew or lockout. They'll even lock up your luggage for you, and it's safe. I did this several days and all my stuff was still there. I'm thankful for this place as I ended up stranded in Belgium with almost no money and this place saved me, big time! I never had any problems with anyone. It wasn't horribly noisy, I left the window open each night and slept really well. They provide linens and pillows; which I couldn't believe for it being so cost effective. Don't let the negative reviews scare you. Those people just expected too much and I suspect that they don't travel that much. I've been traveling Europe for over a year now and this place does make some other hostels, like a horrible one I stayed in in East London, look like the Ritz. It's a really good place. Honestly, I felt compelled to leave a review because I know how nervous I was, but I was pleasantly surprised! There's no roof leaks, it's not dirty, no bed bugs, hot water and clean comfortable beds that have warm, clean linens. Plus a kitchen....for €14/night. I challenge you to find a better place for that price! Really happy with my stay and when/if I come back to Brussels, I will gladly stay here again. Also, it should be noted that from Etterbeek train station to here, it looks like a sketchy area, but if you walk, literally five minutes past the hostel it's super rich. There are tons of embassadors' homes and mansions. That's Brussels though, everything is mixed together. (:
