Welcome to our hostel

For a hostel with an arts feel, then Jacques Brel could be the one for your group. Throughout the year, the hostel plays host to a number of cultural events, including concerts, theme nights and exhibitions. Not only that, this centrally located hostel is right in the middle of the city’s major sight-seeing attractions which are largely accessible on foot.

A popular destination for school groups, the hostel has a great games room complete with snooker table and table tennis table. If the weather is a bit kinder then the courtyard garden outside the front of the hostel is also open for everyone to use and is often where the concerts are held. With a new kitchen in 2011, Jacques Brel tries to create meals which are locally sourced and of course there is the option with all group bookings to order packed lunches or evening meals.

There are meeting rooms available for group visits and there are also two parking spaces for coaches outside the hostel. So if you are looking to organise a group trip to the centre of Brussels, then why not make an enquiry at the Jacques Brel?
