There is a few things you should know about Bruges hostels and the city in general. Besides comparing you the best and cheapest hostels in Bruges, we also highlight what we have liked, disliked and things to look out for.Bruges is a fantastic, medieval city located in Northwest Belgium, about twenty miles from the beach. However, those staying at Bruges hostels will find that even in summer, it is rarely warm enough by western standards to enjoy a day at the beach. Bruges is plagued by rain just as often as London or Ireland but the wet and gloomy weather lends Bruges much of its cozy charm. The Flemish are warm and inviting and often speak nearly flawless English, in addition to their native Dutch, and most can speak or understand French.
Here is a few more tips from the community. Other travelers share their best tips on backpacking Bruges:
Bruges can get uncomfortably crowded during midsummer, so if like me, you want to make some good photos and avoid the tour groups, get up at 6 or 7 in the morning, and the city is almost yours until the tour buses arrive at 10. You can then hire a bike tour the surrounding canal paths and visit the beautiful little town of Damme.
Great place. We would love to go back there. We definitely recommend the canal tour -- sit up the front of the boat as it adds to the experience going under the low bridges. The food is also great -- many a quality bakery and some great little pubs too.
Bruges is a surprising little place.
