Situated in Brussels and with Mont des Arts reachable within 500 metres, Hostel Bruegel features a terrace, allergy-free rooms, free WiFi throughout the property and a restaurant. The property is close to Manneken Pis, Museum of the City of Brussels and Brussels City Hall. The property is 500 metres from the city centre and 700 metres from Brussels Central Station.

The Guy at the Front Desk was really friendly and he managed that I could upgrade my room to a single room, which was so a present for me. I could have my Breakfast take away. They are really looking for the wishes of the guests. I would book it again!!

The Classic by 2GO4 Grand Place offers accommodation in Brussels.

There is a shared kitchen at the property.

Grand Place is a few steps from The Classic by 2GO4 Grand Place, while The King's House is a few steps from the property. The nearest airport is Brussels Airport, 11 km from the property.

Generation Europe Youth Hostel is located in Brussels within a 20-minute walk from the central Grand Place and Manneken Pis. Guests can benefit from free Wi-Fi access, a buffet restaurant and a bar, a garden terrace and free evening entertainment.

The room was of very decent in size for 4 people and was easy to walk around in. The entertainment area downstairs was perfect for watching the rugby that was on at the time. Also to note that there were clear indications as to where the linen was to be placed the next morning. Really enjoyable experience.

    Great location to stay, very central near Grand Place (as you might have guessed by its name). My reservation was one bed in a 6 bed mixed dormitory including a nice breakfast. Good service, clean and nice personnel are some of the key words describing Latroupe Grand Place Hostel. Next time visiting Brussels, this will be the place to stay.

    Possibly the best hostel that I've been to. Location is excellent. Staff are excellent. Hostel was clean and the bathroom was excellent. Bunk beds were a little creaky. I didn't get to try the breakfast. But I would highly recommend this hostel.

    I stayed at Sleep Well for 2 night, It was fabulous, the hostel was really clean and safe. I didn't expect hostel will be so spacious and tidy, especiallythe bathroom. The breakfast was amazing, we had bread with different jam and spread, salad, tuna, scramble egg, boiled egg, fried sausage and drinks.... The location was excellent , it is just 5 mins walk from Rogier Metro station and city centre. Sleep Well has lot of qcommunal areas that you can sit and relax. This was the best hostel I have stayed for holiday

    I hate the city of Brussels, which is a shame because this was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Very clean, very sleek. Great staff, great breakfast, great location. One of the very few hostels I've ever seen, also, that tag your bag when you stick it in storage and actually check the numbers when you take it out. So rest easy that no one is yoinking your bag from this place. If ever I hated myself enough to come back to Brussels, I would absolutely stay here.

    I stayed in a shared dormitory at this hostel for one night until I met my friends who were coming to Brussels a day later. The staff was immensely nice and friendly, they could communicate very well in English and the explained everything in detail. The common area is welcoming and it serves as a great place to meet new people or hang out with people you’re travelling with. Rooms were clean, well organised and safe. I was very satisfied and will definitely stay at other LaTroupe hostels in the future.

    The Room was very neat and the breakfast was very good. The hostel is in a very great location close to the city centre. E-scooters can be used to get around Brussels very quickly and cheaply (I would recommend getting a day pass or 3 day pass. We used lime but there are many you can use). There is also a metro station close by to get to the atomium and mini-europe easily.

    One of the best hostels I've been to. I haven't been to a hostel in 8 years, and was shocked by the standard. Either it has changed a lot in the last couple of years, or this was just a really great hostel. Nothing to complain about. Clean, safe, great location and pretty much exactly what I wanted. I was even lucky with quiet roommates
