Visitors to the hostel in Tournai return year after year as the legendary manager Christian is known to all in the town because of his friendliness as well as his love of rock and fairytales. Rooms on the ground floor at the hostel - which is a former music academy – are covered in tapestries which give some insight into the artistic nature of the town. The Musée des Beaux-Arts is next door to the hostel.

Would be good to have a facility to wash clothes - at least a laundry area with some sinks and lines for hanging to allow hand washing. Great friendly staff. While bikes can be kept in the courtyard, a dedicated (under cover) area with some mounting points would be good.
