We were assigned to the wing that is not renewed. It was rather old, but the most important thing is that we had to climb up the third floor without elevator. The stairs to chevron floor was extremely narrow, as if the top floor was illegally built, not to mention the difficulty climbing up the stairs with heavy luggage. All the staff were very friendly and efficient except one of the female staff with short curly hair. We met her upon check-in at about 6pm on 16/6.

Room was too small and hot, and hadn't been very well cleaned. Bathroom smelled bad! Rest of hostel facilities fine and helpful staff.

We are sorry to hear that your stay with us was not what you expected. Next time please come at the reception and tell us so we can inform the technical staff to fix the problem in a short time. Hope to see you again in Brussels or in another HI hostels around the world. Regards, Virginie

Awful stay, given basement room next to reception, absolutely no soundproofing from bar. Staff were no help in dispersing a VERY loud group who made a racket till 6 AM. It is not an overstatement to suggest you stay somewhere else, and that we may well have not bothered to close the door to our room given the noise. Very ineffective staff.

We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay with us. Next time please come at the reception and tell us. We will do our best to keep the noise down after 10 pm. There is also a night watchman to contact in case of trouble like that. Regards, Virginie

Hatten ein 3-Bett und ein 2-Bett Zimmer gebucht. Das 3-Bett Zimmer war sehr geräumig und hatte ein renoviertes Bad mit WC. Das 2-Bett Zimmer befand ich in einem anderen Trakt und war klein und abgewohnt. Das Badezimmer hatte keine Toilette.
