Staff at our group hostel are experts when it comes to knowledge on the surrounding areas and are always on hand to help you gather inspiration for day trips and activities. School groups visiting Hasselt are spoiled for choice when it comes to educational gems and local museums – starting with the Museum ‘Het Stadsmus - teaching students about the history of the city and how its inhabitants continuously re-invent the area, the Hasselt Fashion Museum – giving fashion students a unique insight into the history of local fashion trends and the Hasselt literary museum – a paperback haven for any passionate literature students. Large common rooms and communal spaces are available at the hostel, perfect for holding pre or post day trip lessons and workshops.

Families visiting Hasselt won’t want to miss the nearby Plopsa Indoor – offering over twenty attractions, an indoor theme park, endless live shows for kids and a host of happy faces. The Carillon Tower overlooks the city - groups can gather up some energy and climb the stairs, to be rewarded at the top with a truly breath-taking view. Recognised by UNESCO, the Carillon Tower is the perfect place to teach your students or children about Belgian Carillon Culture. Spend a calming, peaceful and scenic afternoon with your group by taking a stroll through the largest Japanese Garden in the whole of Europe – just a short walk away from the hostel. Groups of friends and families can also enjoy the hostel bar – providing groups with access to some of Belgian’s finest beers, wonderful music and games throughout the day.

A healthy and varied breakfast is on offer to all groups as part of their stay. Upon request, packed lunches and a selection of tasty home cooked three course dinners can also be arranged for groups.

The rooms are spacious yet cosy and fully equipped – with separate rooms for coach drivers and leaders available to all groups. All rooms come with a private bathroom, lockers and comfortable beds – varying in size to suit the needs of different sized groups. A large lounge area can be found within the hostel – the ideal spot for unwinding together after a long day of sightseeing, museum hopping and exploring the area.
