We only popped in for a drink, so didn't use hostel, but staff were really friendly and nice decor. You can have beers or food - Viven IPA on tap. Smoking room upstairs, toilets downstairs.

It's ok. Mainstream songs, pool, fooseball, touristic, some cool beer. Regular place. Nothing special.

A good joint to mingle with fellow tourists and grab some beers before heading out to discover the various hot spots of the bruges night life. Foods decent, apparently the pizzas are recommended, good beers on the tap, but best of all is the energy of the place.

We stayed here for one night and it was really good, the rooms were clean, warm and spacious. The upstairs of the hostel did smell a bit but nothing too bad, the bathrooms were ok and the showers were good. Downstairs the bar is excellent with a huge variety of Belgian beer, location is good. Continental breakfast for €4 was... More

The place is centrally located (5 mins walk from the market) and has a nice bar which is open till 4 am. The dorms however are just average.

Then this is a good hostel to stay in. However if you want to sleep anytime before 3am then don't stay here! It was so horrendously noisy that it was impossible to sleep. Rooms and bathrooms were pretty basic but fine for the price and it is in a good location.

Relaxed vibe. We had a few drinks and left the kids to run about on the stage. Pool behind the bar and a table football table as well

The bar stays open until 4am playing insanely loud music. Great if you're on a night out but midweek and out of season it's pretty awful when you need a good night's sleep. If tacky American themed bars are your thing then fair enough but if you're after a place to stay - don't bother.

I don't recommend this place. Specially because I think that in such an ideal setting why would one want an American bar. Go to the ones with a more European vibe. And specially when in Bruges. Silver Lining - They have pool & snooker too.
