Top tips for finding Brussels hostel deals

  • Between the municipalities of Anderlecht and Schaerbeek you will find a cluster of hostels in Brussels that should suit the requirements of most travelers to the city in search of affordable lodgings. This area is saturated with historical and cultural attractions, including the Brussels Stock Exchange, Palais de Justice de Bruxelles, and Musée Magritte museum, to name a few. Brussels has an excellent transportation system that consists of metro, bus, and tram networks, as well as an inter-city railway. So, it’s very easy to get around the city and the greater metropolitan area from any of the hostels in the city.
  • At 2GO4 Quality Hostel Grand Place, you will stay at one of the best and most affordable hostels in Brussels. Located in the heart of the Grand Place district, this property is within easy reach of Galleries Royal Saint-Hubert, Cathédrale de Sts. Michel et Gudule, Bruxelles, and two major transport hubs—Gare Centrale (metro) and Gare de Bruxelles Central (national railway). Accommodations at this location include several six-bed dormitories, but it will only accept guests under 35 years old (unless you book a private room) and groups of nine persons or fewer.
  • Sleep Well Youth Hostel on Rue du Damier is an eco-friendly hostel in Brussels city center with six-bed dormitories, double and single rooms, and the option of private rooms for guests 35 and older. Its location between the Quartier des Quais and the Freedom Quarter means you are close to Theatre de Martyrs and Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée, as well as several colleges; so there are good transportation links close by. EXKi and Quick are two eateries not far away.
  • Located near the boundary between Flanders and Brussels you will find Auberge Des 3 Fontaines, an estate with several private rooms that come with en-suite baths, lakes nearby, and tennis courts, which should interest couples who prefer a rural setting away from the city (20 min via the metro). Within 5 mi of this property are the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History, the European Parliament complex, Palais du Coudenberg, and the Foret de Soignes forest.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hostel in Brussels, you should consider going during the low season. You’ll generally find lower-priced hostels in Brussels in January and May.
