Brussels City Guide - Meininger Brussels

Meininger (€€)

Meininger is a hotel/hostel hybrid where young, urban travelers feel at home. Their Brussels’ branch is particularly interesting, as its building used to be a factory, so the original concrete ceiling and metal factory lamps have been maintained. Interested in joining our FREE Tour? We have a daily pick-up service at their lobby.

We love how Motel One’s hotels look fancy, yet they are still affordable! Their location in Brussels is great, just behind the Central Station.

3 cool hostels for backpackers

 

Van Gogh Hostel (€)
Next to Botanique Metro Station, this is a great option for backpackers looking for no-frills accommodation. You can get a room here for as little as 15€, breakfast is included. They also have a kitchen and laundry facilities. But the most interesting thing about this hostel is that Van Gogh himself slept there, from October 1880 to April 1881. Anton van Rappart, Van Gogh’s friend and patron, used to live in this building and offered his buddy to set up his workshop there.

Train Hostel (€)
This is the newest hostel in Brussels, located right next to the also recently inaugurated Train World Museum, which makes trains interesting even for those who are not so crazy about the subject. All rooms are kitted out with authentic rail-wear gear. They have a kitchen and “take one, leave one” library.

Hello Hostel (€)
Hello Hostel’s motto is: the budget is limited but the quality is not! Their beds cost from 20€ a night, breakfast included. They also offer a kitchen, laundry facilities and rental bikes. Plus, their staff is among the friendliest in town!
