I've been to several hostels in my life and I haven't complained about the lack of cleaning, old furniture or disgusting toilets without any toilet paper (in Gdansk, Poland), but I would have expected a bit better of this hostel in Brussels, Belgium. The facilities are pretty basic and totally unsatisfactory. I was sharing a 4-bed dorm room with 3 other women and it was situated on another building across the street of the main hostel building. It was a pain to go from the 3rd or 4th floor of this building to the other building for shower, since there was no hot water in this subsidiary building. I'm sure they meant to have hot water, but there just was none. The breakfast was pretty minimal with a few toasts, cereal and a fruit. There is a kitchen, laundry room, luggage storage and a communal area, but these are all in the main building again. I really hated this hostel, but had to stay somewhere before finding a place to rent. I stayd all together 4 nights and paid about €22 per night in a 4 person dorm.
They say on their website that they are located in the heart of Brussels. That's not quite true, as it is not that close to the main bit of the city centre, but it is not that far away from the main centre either.
There are 228 beds, ranging from single room to dorms 10 beds.

I really enjoyed my stay here at this hostel. I really liked the common area where you could meet new people who you could go out and explore Brussels. I liked that the place had a pool table or you could sit outside in the back and relax in tree'd area. The accomedations were clean and I found the staff were really nice and friendly.
This is so far the best hostel i know,
it is located in Rue Traversiere near the Botanique Garden and also close to the centre of the city,
the bar stays open until 5 am (or so) in the morning, you have pool, good music, cheap beer and a lot of fun!!
it really feels like being at home, it is not expensive at all and you have breakfast, good service, info and maps for free.
The guys are always willing to clear up all yer doubts and help you have the best time while you're staying in Brussels...
Unique Quality: it simply feels like home
Directions: in front of the Botanique Garden
