With dorms and private rooms, Brxxl 5 City Centre is a modern hostel located in central Brussels, within walking distance of the main sights.
Rooms are decorated in a simple, contemporary style, with bed linens and towels provided. Both dorms and individual rooms have private bathrooms, and TVs are also provided.
Along with free WiFi throughout, Brxxl 5 City Centre has a garden and terrace for guests to enjoy. Tour assistance and luggage storage is available from the 24-hour front desk.
Vending machines are provided in the lobby, and guests have access to tea and coffee making facilities. Plenty of bars and restaurants are located nearby.
The Manneken Pis is a 10-minute walk away, while both Grand Place and the Palais des Beaux Arts are within two kilometres of the hostel.
Guests love the rooms, which they say are comfortable and
very clean. Brxxl 5 City Centre certainly seems to be part of a new generation
of smart, contemporary hostels with both private, hotel-style rooms and
comfortable, small dorms, so you should have a good night's sleep here.
Great transport links.
With good transport links on the doorstep, including metro
and tram stops, guests rate the ease of travel around Brussels from this
hostel. If you're arriving by train, it's also within walking distance of the
station, which many guests have found very convenient.
The friendly service made a good impression on lots of the
guests here, with personable reception staff who are keen to get to know you and
to make sure you have a good stay. Plus, the housekeeping team seems to do a
great job of keeping the rooms spotless.
Rooms need more light.
Some guests find that the rooms are lacking in light, both
natural and from lights and lamps within the room, which can create a bit of a
dim atmosphere, as well as practical issues, like struggling to read your book
clearly without an additional source of light.
No kitchen facilities.
Guests would appreciate full kitchen facilities within the hostel, since currently there's only a microwave and kettle within the communal area. Since no breakfast is provided either, you'll have to find all your meals elsewhere, and dining out can be expensive in Brussels.
Dodgy neighbourhood at night.
While the neighbourhood is reasonably central, some guests
didn't feel particularly safe there. It's probably not a place for wandering
around in at night, particularly if you're on your own, so it's worth
considering that when making your travel plans to get there.
