Brussels Louise Hostel
Reviewed 22 March 2014

A good place to stay. Really friendly hotel staff. Hotel staff were available round the clock. they also suggested a lot of places and local tips regarding Bruxelles. That was a good initiative. They also offered to keep our luggage in their storage, even after we checked out. That was nice. They can offer some breakfast also, then it can be really awesome!!

Room Tip: Rooms were decent enough. I felt the upper bunks shouldn't be very close to the ceiling. Tall pe...

I traveled quite a bit, I honestly never found a place as dirty and desperate as this. The toilets are dirty, the showers do not exist (all broken), the rooms are tiny (as in you can barely turn around, and no, I am not large), if you get a chance to sleep ANYWHERE else, do so. This is not closely recommendable, and there are other cheap hostels in Brussels. If you want basic hygiene, this is not your place. If you want to know how it feels to live in dirt and mess, feel free to go there...

For 20€/night for a shared room with 4 beads in the very center of Brussels you can't expect to get much.

The rooms are pretty messy and not clean,some have a strange small, lights did not always worked. The bedclothes where clean, you have access to warm water for personal hygiene. The owners are kind of creepy but seam
to be serious, they check ID and accept credit cards

In short a mix bag, a classic student hostel where you can get sleep and but then want to get the out of there.

It can be only compared to a prison, very dirty and dark, in a bad condition. Soon after we arrived we found out that our room did not have a key.We noticed that some girls girls who behaved like permanent tenants were dressed up in very revealing clothes.. In the middle of the night we could hear weird noises from the next rooms-you do the math.
There was rarely someone at the reception and it took us 3hours to check in-we were waiting for the receptionist.
The big plus is the location and the wifi, it is good if you are stranded in the city and just looking for a cheap place to spend ONE night.

When I booked and saw pictures I thought that will be amazing share a room only with my friends, but when I came, I wanted to run!
The room was dirty, the shower was in a box that the door don't close. My friend needed stay outside to look after me.
In my first night, at 4 am people ran above our room, screamed a lot. Was a nightmare!
