I was pleasantly surprised when I got here because it's not your regular hostel. The place is newly renovated and room facilities almost look like a budget hotel's. The room was very spacious, bathroom was big with hot and cold water, wi-fi was strong even in the rooms. Breakfast was delightful as they had a wide range of choices from salads and fruits, to cold cuts and sausages, to bread and cereal. The location was also very good -- parallel to the shopping district and a 10-15 walk to Grand Place/Grote Markt.
Because it's like a budget hotel, I think most tour packages book the place. During my stay, I saw many old tourists in groups. Again, this is not your regular hostel where you go to the lobby or common area to hang out. There's none of that here unless you're traveling with your own friends.
If you're looking for great comfort, value and location, this place doesn't disappoint. If you're looking for the chill hostel atmosphere, I believe this isn't the place for you.
Reminder: The hostel's street becomes deserted at night. For female solo travelers, it is best to avoid walking alone at night.
