  • 2.0.Poor

    Beware of this dump. Keep out!!! Don't ever sleep in their train cabins. It is the most unsanatary place I have ever seen in a hostel. All night and a half a day the sink was clogged in the women's bathroom. There was no toilet paper from 12 am to 2 pm in the same women's bathroom. The hallways were full of garbage from 6 am to 2 pm until I had had it and booked a new place. I am surprised that this place has not been shut down for not meeting European Union standards. It is a scam for what they charge for complete disgust.

    I didn’t like that it didn’t have any heater and they don’t have blanquets for the room I got

    Allez découvrir Train cabin Hostel !

    Nous avons passé une nuit, une cabine adultes et une cabine pour nos 5 enfants (10, 12, 15, 17 et 19 ans). Le concept est très fun, avec peu de bagages et une bonne organisation ! Le personnel est vraiment sympa et professionnel. Mension spéciale pour la propreté des sanitaires et le buffet du petit-déjeuner, joliment présenté, varié et bon ! Bravo, nous reviendrons visiter Bruxelles !

    ⚠️ cabines de train sans drap et couette

    Il n’était pas précisé sur le descriptif de l’hôtel que les cabines dans les wagons n’ont pas de drap ni couverture ou couette ni de serviettes de toilettes. Nous avons donc dû ajouter 15€ par duvet et 2€ pour 2 serviettes, ce qui n’était pas prévu dans notre budget. (L’hôtel le précise dans sa confirmation mais le site Hotels.com n’en parle pas en amont). Par ailleurs l’hôtel est proche de l’aéroport et de la gare donc en plus des voisins qui claquent les portent des cabines et parlent fort jour comme nuit, l’environnement est très bruyant. A part ça l’accueil est très pro et le petit déjeuner très bon.

    Un séjour fort sympathique, le cadre dans lequel nous sommes plongez est atypique ce qui est plaisant. Le seul problème est la chambre, ne prenez pas les train cabines si vous êtes grand, vous risqueriez de passez une mauvaise nuit comme moi.

    Expérience dépaysante

    Petite escapade avec nos petites filles de 16 et 19 ans pour visite de Bruxelles. Expérience dépaysante et hors du commun. Confort sommaire mais en accord avec le concept du train couchette.
