    great place to stay


    Great location (5-mins-walk to metro, around 30-mins-walk to central train station. Clean rooms. With bathroom. Big lockers for luggage. Rather quiet. There are extra toilets on every floor. Breakfast was great. Free internet in the lobby - 4 computers. Relaxing and fun areas available - reading (books and magazines, brochures), table soccer, great garden. Nice bar where you can also have dinners, not expensive, friendly and helpful staff.

    Unique Quality: cozy atmosphere

    Hostels in Brussels


    Many moons ago when I was trying to get a job here and still youthful enough to stay in a Youth hostel (kidding!) I stayed in a few of the hostels here in Brussels. Out of the ones I stayed in this was definitely the best - clean, well-priced and nice mix of people. I took a room but the dorms looked pretty good too. Haven't tried the one nearest to the centre Sleep well, Brueghel (see warning tip)

    Unique Quality: Location, staff and cleanliness

    Directions: Within walking distance of centre

    Jacques Brel Youth Hostel, Brussels


    Very good twin rooms - I have stayed in two here. Very comfortable, with good showers.

    Staff are friendly. The bar is good, if slightly limited in its range of beers (especially considering it is in Brussels).

    Breakfast is included in the price, and is your standard hostel fare - cereals, bread and slices of cheese. Acceptable.

    The hostel is very good value for money, easily the best value accommodation I have used in Brussels.

    Unique Quality: Table tennis table. Good bar. Close to a nice little park, with a statue.

    Directions: Use Botanique/Kruidtuin metro.

Where to stay?

by Anville3

I'll be in Brussels for only 2 days towards the beginning of June, and I want to make sure that I stay in a good location with a good night life, and easy accessability to the whole city. Can somebody recommend a neighborhood for me to stay in? If there is a hostel (I'm on a budget!) that you particularly liked, that information would be good too!


RE: Where to stay?

Public transport in Brussels is modest but efficient during the day. If you wanna make the most of the BXl night life, then stay within the "petit ring" (city centre) because there is NO public transport after midnight, except for a couple of bus lines of no importance.

Jacques Brel Youth Hostel is close to the area, cheap (12-15 EUR night), good service, clean and easy going staff. You need an membership card tough. Once I stayed there for a couple of days. Check:


RE: Where to stay?

I've seen you are staying in Brugge too. If you take the international membership card IYHF (get an address to contact in your country at www.iyhf.org), you can make reservations from your country in the international network of hostels. I cannot imagine a cheapest way to travel, in Brugges the hostel was 15m/20m walking from the centre but brugges is so small.

In Brussels the standard nightlife is concentrated in the streets around "Bourse", don't miss the bars and discos in Place St Gery just 100m from Bourse. If you are into salsa and mainstream nightlife, the centre is the place to be. For famous Belgian venues (techno? and similar things) there are other areas in Brussels, of course a famous place for international Djs of that kind of music is "cafe d'anvers" in Antwerpen (40m by train from Brussels).

Belgium is not expensive, hostels are cheap, beer is also cheap and excellent, usually there is no entrance fee or just 10EUR.
