St Christopher's Inn Hostel at The Bauhaus Reviews

Good place for one night

The place overall was good, it kind of pricey for a hostel, but the entire town requires you a good budget. The bars downstairs is a little noisy, but this is quite normal in a hostel too. what I really don't like was the bathrooms, it's shared of course, but it seems like a school bathroom, it doesn't make you feel comfortable and it wasn't really clean either.

St Christopher's Inn Hostel at The Bauhaus is a great hostel located in central Bruges. It is clean, friendly, and has a great bar downstairs that is attended by both hostel guests and locals alike. St Christopher's is a popular European hostel chain, known for its high-quality backpacker accommodation. The only key feature it misses is a kitchen, but don't worry -- you'll be too full on fine Belgian chocolate, waffles, and beer to want to cook your meals anyway.

The Location

The Bauhaus is located in central Bruges, about ten minutes' walk from the main square. Although not quite as central as some other hostels in the area, it is still very close and within walking distance to everything in this small but charming medieval town. There are also many cute shops, cafes, restaurants, and (most importantly) chocolate shops nearby, in addition to a supermarket that seems to be more popular as a liquor store. It is about a thirty-minute, scenic walk from Bruges' train station, which is situated on the outskirts of the Old Town.

Rooms and Bathrooms

This hostel offers private rooms as well as dorms ranging from four to sixteen beds in size. Guests also have the option of booking a regular dorm or the superior ten- or sixteen-bed dorms. For a small amount extra, these superior beds are worth the money. They are high-quality bunk beds with comfortable mattresses, individual lights, and power points, plus their very own curtain to keep away prying eyes or just to block out any disturbances.

The bathrooms vary in quality but are on the whole pretty good. The showers in the second building, which is next door to the main building, are more modern and therefore better. There are also a lot of them in this building, so guests never have to wait. Alternatively, there are fewer showers in the main building and the ones here have push-button timers and fixed-in-place shower heads. They are still good -- hot with good water pressure -- but just not as good as the ones in the other building. All bathroom blocks are also kept very clean.

Common Spaces

At this hostel, the bar is the common space; it's nice and charming and has a great vibe, but it's also not the easiest place to meet other hostel guests. There is no kitchen at the hostel either, but there is free tea and coffee for guests. Breakfast -- consisting of toast and a range of spreads, cornflakes, muesli, tea, coffee, and juice -- is included in the price.

Summary

St Christopher's Bauhaus hostel is comfortable and convenient. It is a great, affordable accommodation option for anyone visiting Bruges, and is especially comfortable if you opt for one of the beds in the superior dorms.

Good place to rest and enjoy a beer

This hostel is a good place to rest and nearby to the mains streets but you must to know the bathrooms are out of the rooms. However, you have a complete service as lockers, restaurant, plugs and light by your bed and laundry. The bar is a good place for enjoy a beer with rock music at night but is a quiet place at day. I didn't have problems for sleep but if you are above the bar maybe the noise can be a problem I don't know.

Overall cant complain much

Good -- pretty friendly staff; great breakfast of bread, pate, cereal, orange juice; curtains for beds and own light and charger in bed; awesome in brugges tour (run by a guy from outside, but sign up at reception -- its free and the loud skin head guy who runs its is absolutely top notch, great character and awesome tour). Bad -- showers are never hot, wifi doesnt work in the room, no shared kitchen (as far as i could find).

Great Location and Good for Nightlife

This St. Christopher's Inn is more of a bar with rooms attached than it is a hostel. Brugge is a very small city, so wherever you stay you are in a good location. The beds were average and the bathrooms smelled pretty bad, but it was a very acceptable hostel for our standards. Be wary that if you are looking for a quiet and quaint place to stay on the weekend, this is not the place for you. The guests are normally younger and tend to stay out later and come in late which can either be a good, or a bad thing depending on your interests. The WiFi is only available in the lobby and it sucks bad!! So don't rely on the WiFi there. The breakfast is the standard hostel breakfast with rolls and juice, nothing too exciting. The staff was very friendly, but sometimes worked very slowly when there were a lot of people around. All in all it was an ok hostel, nothing spectacular.

St Christopher's Inn - Bauhaus Hostel, this little party hostel, has the apparent ability to leave you with a lasting hangover.

The Location

Situated within the walls of the city area, the hostel is easily accessible by public transport. If you are arriving by train, you can take the 6 or 16 tram to the hostel. The stop is just around the corner from the hostel. A good number of staff at the train station speak English, so you shouldn't have too much trouble purchasing a ticket before hopping on the tram. Alternatively, you can walk from the station -- it is a good thirty-minute walk, although there are no hills! Parking is available in the surrounding streets. The hostel itself comprises of five buildings including a bar and a restaurant. The photograph included is of the main reception building. The walk into town is an easy, ten-minute stroll, and there is a decent supermarket nearby.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The buildings, poky at best, are full of winding corridors that make this hostel difficult to navigate at times. The dorm rooms are small with as many possible beds crammed in. There is a sink in the dorms, as well as ample power point facilities. The showers are decent with hot water and no pressure problems. There are hooks and shelves in the shower area for your belongings. The toilets are somewhat horrible after the evening, and many do not have washroom facilities (presumably why there is a sink in the room). Only some provide hand sanitiser.

Common Spaces

There is an outdoors smoking area as well as a small common room. Having said that, the best place to meet fellow travelers is in the bar area. Wi-Fi is free, however, it's only available in the reception building and common area as well as the bar area. It is not available in the rooms. Laundry facilities are available for an all-inclusive price. The hostel also offers a free walking tour and the hire of bicycles. Breakfast is included, and it's a decent spread. Drinks at the bar are reasonably priced.

The downside to this hostel is that there are neither kitchen facilities nor a dining room. Given that the hostel is spread out over the five buildings, it is difficult to meet other travelers as many simply enter the common space to use the Wi-Fi and then leave. If you don't want to eat in the hostel restaurant, simply pack a picnic from the nearby supermarket and go to the park with windmills at the end of the street.

Summary

This is a great hostel if you're only staying a night. For seasoned travelers, you might just have to suck it up and stay here because your choices in Brugge are limited!

Very poor and expensive hostel and breakfast.

In last 20 years we visited more than 100 hostels in all parts of the world, but the Bauhaus in Brugge was one of the worst. Twin room, very small, unisex WC on the first floor for approx 20 people without water, breakfast the poorest one we ever got, and the price comparatively among the highest. Distance from rail station across the whole city center, buses on weekends only one per hour ... I do not recommend this hostel.

Decent hostel, good bar, adequate breakfast, bad restaurant.

A bit far from the train station but the whole town is quite small. A few buses stop close by, bus drivers are very friendly and can tell you how to get there. Staff are quite friendly and informative, interesting mix of people from around the world! Breakfast is a couple of rolls, some butter and jam, a hardboiled egg or two, some cold cuts and cheese, tea/coffee. It is served in the restaurant. It gets VERY busy at breakfast, please be nice to the staff as they try to keep up! The restaurant itself is not that great. For the same price you can eat out and have a better meal. The bar is cozy and warm, the crowd, well that depends on the guests, most of them were great conversation and interesting, though there were a few whiners but that isn't the hostel's fault. Bathrooms and showers are as clean as you can expect for the numbers they serve.

Really nice and clean hostel in a really good location. Would recommend staying here. Only downside is that there were no self catering facilities

Great place to stay - the pod beds were very comfortable and private, bathrooms were clean, and the bar was a good place to meet people with solid prices. Minor downsides: no kitchen, need to be outgoing to meet people because there arent really official hostel activities and the bar downstairs is a mix of locals and travellers. But the staff and other travellers are all very nice so you can definitely make it work!

I loved this hostel! I've visited different hostels in my life, and this one was one of the best! The rooms are nice and clean. Each bed has its own luggage storage lockers. The best part about this hostel is the pub downstairs! The place is defined by the locals as the "international bar", and if you want to meet people coming from everywhere in the world, this is the place to go! I had so much fun and met amazing people. Moreover, they have a big selection of local beers. 10/10

The beds were very comfy in my opinion! The main downside was that you can hear everything from the connected bar in the room, so this isnt the best hostel if youre looking to get good sleep

Really good stay at St Christopher's. Easy to meet people and socialise at the bar. Lots of evening activities. Good amount of bathrooms and toilets. Can hire a bike. Don't think you should be charged to store luggage pre/post checkin/out. Good breakfast included if you book via Hostelword/possibly some other sites.

This is a great hostel. Only thing I didn't like was that the shower was really hot and you are unable to adjust it. Otherwise, it's a very social hostel w/ great staff, good location, safe, nice beds etc.

Great place. The Scottish guy on reception was really helpful and friendly. I'd definitely stay again if I go back to Bruges.

This hostel has everything you need although there is no common area and the rooms are designed in a zig zag layout which makes it very anti social able.

This hostel would be great for group of friends but I cannot recommend this hostel for a solo traveller.

Hostel is very average but free if you book your stay directly with them.

30 min walk from the station and 15 min walk to central.

Staff were nice - showers/toilets were great.

Nice, but location is a little far from city center. Also downstairs is a bar so quite loud until 3-4am. Also not very well air conditioned

Such a brilliant hostel, absolutely loved staying here. Highly recommend taking part in any tastings they offer, we did the 'Tastes of Belgium' and it was so interesting, they were also offering beer tastings as well. We also did the night tour which starts off in the Markt Square and ends up outside the hostel's bar next door, free beer afterwards can't go wrong - the night tour is free but the guides do appreciate tips :) overall, such a good vibe highly recommend!

This hostel was lovely overall and a great place to meet people as a solo traveler. The staff is super friendly as are the guests. However, the USB port by my bed was broken and the locker did not come out from under the bed - neither of these were fixed during my stay even after alerting the front desk several times.

Very good location, good atmosphere!

Breakfast was OK and its abit on the steep side price wise but I think prices in general seems to be going up for hostels.

Recommend this place for anyone going to Bruge!

St. Christopher's are all really solid and this place is definitely no exception. Bar has a really great atmosphere and the facilities were great. Only thing to be aware of is the rooms get really hot at night but that's pretty common. Location is about a 10 minute walk to the city center which isn't bad at all.

Broken sink in room.

Room nothing like the one on hostelworld.

Few bar staff though always busy, staff are all superb.

Terrible coffee and eggs in the morning.

Awesome atmosphere with fun parties at the bar and cheap drinks. Good location close to the center but removed from the hustle. Very helpful staff, beds were creaky and rooms hot, but thats a hostel in summer

The showers in the whole building were burning hot. We couldnt regulate the temperature. In our building we didnt really have a sink and the one in our room didnt work. Also the showers and bathrooms were quite dirty. The girls on the reception and the other staff were super nice just one of bartenders was unpolite. The hostel has a nice bar and lobby and is close to the center of Brugges. A kitchen where guest can cook would be nice as the prices in restaurants are crazy expensive.

Description

No place better reflects the qualities of Bruges than the Bauhaus. A great central location, splendid price value and all the facilities a budget traveller can imagine gives you the feeling budget travel started here. From doubles/twins with facilities (please check also the Budget Hotel listing) to 3-5 pers. rooms, to small dorms of 6-8 pers, everyone can find the best deal. Total strangers fall in love with the soul of this place. A unique blend of locals & travellers exchange experiences and sample one of Belgium's 450 tasty beers at one of the 3 Bauhaus bistros. Ranging from 'up-beat' and 'happening' to 'loungy' and 'laid-back', each café covers almost any age and taste while not interfering with the quiet sleeping areas. This variety on offer pulls you in and makes it hard to let go.
The in-house cybercafé and bike-rental come in more than handy. Easy bike trips to the neighbouring Dutch town of Sluis or the wide Brugean sandy beaches are great experiences. Exploring the rich Flemish countryside, dotted with castles, wind mills and picturesque spots is worth an extra days stay! Visits to Brussels, Antwerp or Gent are ideal daytrips from your medieval Brugean home base.

The Hostel is part of a recently renovated complex of 6 typical Brugean step gable houses, including also the Budget Hotel and 4 flats for smaller groups (4-10).
