Reviews

Many good: Organic breakfast! rooms are ok with shower, lockers and some electrical outlets (not near bed though), shared kitchen with fridge, very tasty food, comfy meeting places, working zone with desks and outlets, coffee machine... Some lacking points: mostly groups or people looking for the cheapest accommodation, harder to socialize with. On that regard, Bruegel was better for single travellers. Must vacate the rooms from 12am to 3pm

i've booked a double room for three days. Everything is alright except one problem. I can hear the noise from some machine(I guess it should be air conditioner) all the time. Generally speaking, this hostel is good.

Nous avons eu une bonne expérience à Jacques Brel, ils effectuaient des rénovations durant notre séjour mais cetait pas si mal. La seule critique est sur le bar qui etait supposé offrir un petit menu tout les jours à partir de 19h et la seule fois qu'on a voulu manger ils ont dit qu il n'y avait pas de nourriture ce soir là sans que ce soit inscrit . Sinon je recommande cette hostel. C'est bien organisé et propre.

The hostel is very good, the only and really very big issue is that there are no wifi at the rooms, only at the reception and cantine. i don't think that to conect the whole hostel will burden financially the Hostel, while it will provide much more confort to the backpackers, as we need internet to plan our trip and conect with our family abroad. This hostel should, seriously, invest on that soon!!

Overall, a very good experience. Take note, although they allow check in starting at 7am that does not mean you can get to your bed at 7am!! I wish their website was more clear. That said, they were not full and they accommodated me - thank you! (I needed sleep after an overnight flight). There is a funny smell in the bathrooms but it's not because they're dirty. It's a plumbing/venting issue. The common areas are nice. This location was fine even if you had to walk 10mins to grand place.

Having stayed with HiHostels in many international locations, I was negatively surprised by the quality of this one. Simple things made a big difference for me. We had no towels in the room and bathroom was not clean, toilet smelled horribly all the time. The breakfast included in the price was very limited, bread felt like days old. Our room had a roof window, covered with paper that did not stay with the tapes, even after we tried to fix it. Had sun in my face early in the morning due this.
