The Hostelz.com Review

Gastama Hostel is a social hostel near the center of town. With lots of bells and whistles, it will help make your stay in Lille a great one.

The Location

The hostel is a fair walk from the two adjacent train stations and the long-distance bus drop-off, but there's a convenient city bus. Gastama Hostel is on the edge of the historic center, so very convenient for sightseeing. In the nice surrounding neighborhood, you can easily find restaurants, supermarkets, and even outdoor markets.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The attractive dorm rooms are big, clean, and well equipped. Some include sinks. The beds have outlets, reading lights, and even privacy curtains. Big, under-the-bed lockers can hold all your valuables (bring your own lock). Be warned, however, that the very cheapest rooms may not have windows. If it's hot, be sure to ask for a room with a window. The rooms are accessible only by key card, adding to security.

The communal bathrooms are clean, with sufficient numbers of toilets and showers, though the toilet stalls are designed to require a bit of acrobatics to get in, especially if you have a bag or pile of clothes with you. The showers are of the non-adjustable, push-button variety. Luckily they're adjusted well, and neither too powerful nor too hot.

Common Spaces

The bar downstairs has a nice vibe; they have not only drinks, but also a few meal options. The guest kitchen is well equipped, and the hang-out room and small terrace upstairs have charm. Wi-Fi is everywhere, though it's one of those weird systems that you have to sign into and which tends to kick you off temporarily every few minutes, so don't count on things like Skype working well. You can also use the internet computers downstairs.

The free breakfast consists of coffee, tea, and…rather oddly…chocolate dessert. If you want a fuller breakfast, you can pay for the buffet with more traditional options. They have self-service laundry, though the one machine may be hard to get your hands on. The hostel also plans social events like poker tournaments and board game nights. Reception has tourist information and will even book tickets on buses and such.

Summary

Gastama is a nice place to stay, where you can certainly meet new friends. The town of Lille, too, is a nice surprise if you're just stopping off on the way to somewhere else. Be to check out the small free zoo and the citadel park.

Gastama 6-bed dorm

I stayed in Gastama just for one night. I slept in a mixed dorm of 6 beds. The atmosphere in the hostel is very good and the staff was super friendly. I had a nice chat with some of the employees and they even gave me some tips about where to find the closest supermarket and such. The luggage room was very useful for me and also easy to use. The bar in the hostel and the bartenders were also great, on saturday night there were a lot of people and good music. I also enjoyed the breakfast which was good for my budget. The beds were also very comfortable and I didn't experience any problems because of the noise or anything else.
