The location is pretty good- we hired a bike for the day and found it was excellent value for 10 euro. We were able to use them right until the next morning. Lights for the bikes were provided, so we were able to see beautiful Bruges at dusk. The breakfast was good and rather filling, except it ended way too early at 9.30am. One kitchen staff in particular was pretty rude as well- we experienced this on two seperate occassions. Our room was spacious, but it was way too hot and stuffy during the night. Also something smelt absolutely putrid during our time there and when we told hostel staff they were really unhelpful in solving the problem, telling us there was no smell, even though it was completely obvious that there was something festering in our room. The showers are pretty useless, don't expect a good one at this hostel.
Overall, this hostel had its pros and cons, but nothing could ruin our fantastic time in Bruges!
