At the Jacques Brel Youth Hostel, located in the heart of Brussels, you’ll find a friendly, international atmosphere with shops and public transport right on your doorstop.

Inside the hostel there is a fully equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi, Internet access, bar, library, laundry and games, and outside there is a patio area where you can enjoy a Belgian beer from the bar and chat to fellow travellers. There’s also an organic breakfast served everyone morning which is included in the price.

Jacques Brel hostel also regularly plays host to many events including concerts, exhibitions and theme nights. The hostel’s location in the centre of Brussels makes it a convenient starting point for sightseeing, with the Grand Place and the Musical Instruments Museum within walking distance.

(Please note the hostel is NOT located at the Jacques Brel metro stop).

We will be carrying out important renovation works between 16 December 2013 and March 2015 and this will affect 16 bedrooms as well as the common areas.

The site manager and all the members of the team of the Jacques Brel Youth Hostel will continue to do their utmost to receive you in the best conditions possible during this time and to guarantee you a high quality of service.

The staff is really helpful and kind. It is really nice to see that kind of staff after a long trip. The location of the hostel is fine, and the cleanliness should be a little bit improved but the overall would be 4 out of 5.

Es gab keinen richtigen Bettbezug, in den das Oberbegriff gesteckt werden konnte,ungewöhnlich. Man konnte das braune Oberbegriff nur auf das weiße Laken legen und musste so darunter schlafen. Das Zimmer mit WC und Dusche war sehr schön. Das Bett war etwas schmal und durch ein kleines Fussteil aus Holz unbequem, da ich 1,90 cm groß bin. Eine Woche hätte ich in dem Bett nicht ausgehalten. Zum Frühstück hätte ich mir auch ein paar Brötchen gewünscht. Gruß Rainer Meyer
