Nice hostel on a very good location (city center, beach, cultural events, ...) in Oostende. I believe that the hostel did a lot in environmental practices, but it is a pitty that this spirit is not reflected at breakfast: no organic food, no fair trade products (coffee, tea, cereals, bananas, jam). It would be a good signal to all guests to choose as a hostel for fair trade, isn't it?

Wir waren ganz doll zufrieden. die Lage nah des Strandes und nah der Innenstadt ist optimal. Zimmer sind zwar sprtanisch eingerichtet aber sehr sauber. Beim Frühstück könnte man evtl. auch Tomate und Gurke anbieten und evtl noch ungesüßten Naturjoghurt. Kostenlose Parkplätze sind ein wenig abseits.- Lässt sich aufgrund der optimalen Lage aber auch nicht anders lösen. Dennoch alles sehr schön und wir kommen gerne wieder!!!!

Fantastic stay at this hostel . The lady manning the hostel that evening was fantastic . We had to leave early to make an early eurotunnel service so she made us a packed breakfast so we wouldn't miss out . Thank you so much . Only issue was parking near the hostel but that is out of the hostels control . Oostende is a busy seaside place and there was a festival on that weekend so even busier than usual .
