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 ensuite room had a very shaky shower and slightly dirty and dusty room. But overall i enjoyed my stay.

Me gustó la atención del chico del turno matutino, la limpieza del hostal y sus promociones. Sin embargo, la chica que atiende en el turno vespertino o nocturno, fue muy renuente a resolver nuestras dudas y siempre se encontraba en el bar en lugar de apoyarnos.
