I had a very clean and spacious private room. Breakfast is always something to look forward to. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really like this hostel in Brussels and always stay here when I come to this city. Its a short walk from Central Station but the there are bus stops very near the hostel also. Bus 27 and Bus 48

I like the place very much. Even regarding the lack of laundry and kitchen facilities, it might almost be a "blessing in disguise". I understand logistical challenges and so forth. Bruegel is one of my favorite hostels.

Es gab leider keine richtigen Bettbezüge, nur Laken, die man notdürftig um die Decken drapieren musste. Ansonsten sehr schön, gutes Frühstück und angenehmer Aufenthaltsbereich.

Bonjour, Je viens souvent dans votre auberge de jeunesse. Pour ces journées, j'ai réservé plus de 2 mois avant : il est insupportable d'être casé dans une chambre à côté de l'ascenseur au premier étage. Etage très chargé en cette fin de semaine où des gens braillent toute la nuit entre eux ou crient au téléphone, idem le matin quand une personne tapent aux portes pour que "tout le monde se lève"... Horrible ! Je suis souvent au 3 ème étage, qui était cette fois encore, très calme. Très mal dormi ! Plus jamais ! Je ne comprends pas que vous ayez fait cela, j'ai été casé comme si j'avais réservé le soir même et qu'il n'y avait plus aucune chambre de disponible ! Une honte
