Hey!

Umm, Iím going to Brussels for some EU job test from the 11th to the 15th of March. So, staying for 4 nights because of my plane schedule, I have accommodation for the last two nights, but nothing for the first two so far, and Iím on a tight budget.

Do you know of any cheap but good hostels there (up to 20Ä I guess per night), or any place I could crash for those two nights?

Unfortunately, to cut costs, Iím also not carrying any luggage except for my backpack -> long story short, canít carry any beer...

I tried this one ten years ago. It seemed decent enough for the price but I havenít been back since to check it out:

This place is extremely cosy with lots of interesting tenants but since I only stayed there for half a year in 2001 I wouldnít know what their short stay rates are:

I almost exclusively stay at NH hotels when in Belgium. Theyíre cheap, standard and not dirty.

The member hostels of Hostelling International - hihostels.com - are usually quite good, fairly clean and safe, but they are not extremely cheap - a bed at the Bruegel or Generation Europe will cost you 23.60 EUR per night, but that appears to be with breakfast included. There might be cheaper independent hostels, but I donít know any.

we stayed at 2Go4 a few years back, private room two nights, six person dorm after Mabel left.

The 2GO4 is awesome. There private accommodations very nice, right on the grand place, and just a few blocks from Delirium.

Yep, we stayed there too. Location was top notch. Went to Delirium pretty much every day we were there due to how close we were.

Itís been years but I stayed in this place and liked it well enough: http://www.sleepwell.be/en/prices-youth-hostel-brussels.

Shut down for a fire a few years ago but seems to be open now. Decent bar. Easy walk to Grand Place, etc.

Moon hotel. Just off the Grand Place, and cheap.

I think there are actually two 2Go4 locations. Ours was a bit farther out from the core, but walkable without luggage.
