“Dont ever stay at his hostel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

When we arrived the front lady at the reception was kinda rude, and the elevator wasn't working. The room was disgusting and smelled like cat food. In the corner behind the door did we find 2 dead mice, with woorms crawling out of them. So my advice do not stay at this hotel.

Very friendly staff, clean room with our own bathroom, comfortable bed and a good price!

We left our bags in the hotel during the day after we checked out and went about our day in Brussels, came back before our train and collected our bags being greeted by the friendly front desk staff.

Perfect location right by Brussels midi/zuid!

Would stay again if I was in Brussels!!

Conveniently located within walking distance (5 min) form Brussels South Train Station.
Somewhat obscure but quiet neighbourhood.
Rooms are Basic and clean. My room (103) had a bathroom with a bathtub.
General impression of the Hotel, is that it has been quite run down.
I just stayed 1 night.

so - after reading a few reviews on this "hotel" i decided it couldn't be that bad for one night...oh was i mistaken!
lets start at the beginning - i arrived in the afternoon and was greeted by a very friendly owner, i truly feel a little bad for what I'm about to write simply because he was so lovely to deal with and very friendly but..
i paid about 60 euro for a night (not bad) but for the cheap price, expect a cheap place to sleep. The hotel itself is pretty much on a lean, the floors are slightly slanted (pretty funny really) but it really doesn't seem all that structurally sound haha, oh and when you get in the elevator - your in for a surprise! the carpets are stained with bleach and dirt and look like they are over 50 years old, the corridors are narrow and although the hotel is non smoking, everything smells of smoke or a very strong perfume (thats probably to cover the smell of ciggys). the room is very old and didn't feel over all clean, there was burn marks on the toilet, mold on the grout in the shower, and on the walls in the room, the curtains when i pulled them closed felt almost crisp to touch and definitely need a wash, the bed was con-caved in and literally felt like the sheets were sticking to the mattress, i actually slept on top of the bed in the end, cigarette buts on the "balcony" - the window didn't close properly and kept blowing open, not to mention being unsecure (it didn't make me feel any better that there was a hotel notice by the lift stating the the hotel will not be responsible for any theft from rooms!). breakfast...well for 5 euro (apparently i got a "deal" because its usually charged at 10 euro") i got a decent coffee and some food - but im sure my "deal" was because it would have been ridiculous to charge 10 euro for some bread, packet ham and cheese, a few boiled eggs and some toast - i also felt sorry for the staff member (who i had seen cleaning the rooms the previous day..all day, all by herself) who was cleaning up, serving, replenishing food, doing dishs etc while the other male staff member slowly walked around eating and what i can only assume was "observing guests"..made me feel uncomfortable and watched.
All in all...i wouldn't recommend to anyone, the cheap deal isn't worth the stay - pay the extra 10 or 20 euro and stay in a decent hostel or an actual hotel!

We stayed here for 2 nights and were extremely disappointed. It is not close to the main centre of Brussels, the rooms were old and shabby, it was very noisy, we got stuck in the lift and the neighborhood is rough. When we arrived we tried to cancel, but the hotel had already taken all of the money and would not refund the payment!! I would not recommend staying here.

Hi, i stayed here with my other 7 friends, The hotel is fine, the staff is super friendly, and it is located really good, it really near from Midi Station. Even we found some review this hotel is noisy, but during our 6 days of stays, we don't get any noisy at all, and we really love the owner, he gave us free breakfast for 6 days, thank you so much sir !

Having read several troublingly negative reviews, my girlfriend - and by association I - had begun to worry about our stay here. My fears proved needless, however. This hotel is fine. It isn't glamorous, though it is clean and well organised. It is ideally located if travelling to or from Midi station afterwards, and the reception and breakfast staff were all friendly and multilingual.
We were also able to leave our luggage for a whole day after checking out. A cheap, simple, but safe and friendly place. They did charge our credit card in advance for the whole fee, and not only for the deposit, so do check your bank account soon after booking online.
