Having seen this place advertised at the Flying Pig Uptown in Amsterdam, I thought I'd give it a try. I had a great stay at the Pig and with the Bauhaus being the same company figured it was a safe option.
In all honesty, there was very little not to like! The bar was a nice social hub (a little quiet at times during my stay but the hostel can hardly be blamed for that!), it was clean, the staff were all great, and with a (basic, but free!) breakfast thrown in you're off to a good start each day.
The 'sleeping pod' concept was definitely a strong selling point and it works really well - having your own charging points, reading light, coat hooks, locker and (most important!) a curtain makes for a pretty comfortable stay as far as dorm rooms go.
In terms of the WiFi range - yes it didn't reach too far (although juuust about stretched to my room next door) but there's no real hardship in sitting at the bar/reception and doing your rounds on Facebook from there, it's not as if you're obliged to drink half a dozen delicious Belgian beers just because you're sat near the bar, although it wouldn't be a bad idea :)
All in all Bruges is a great town, one of my favourite places in Europe so far, and the Bauhaus certainly isn't a bad base from which to explore it.
