What can be said about the Bruegel...mean staff over priced 40 euros each for a 2 room while a 2 room in a formula 1 hotel was 20 euros a night (10 euros each).
OK OK well on to why the Brugel sucks
after being overpriced we are moved to a dorm around the corner of the building. We are given a key chain with 2 keys for 2 doors and no idea what went there-we had no assistance. Luckily a fellow hostle dweller was there and helped us.
The beds were awful and the sheets were not entirely clean either. We went to the building for breakers and the dishes were not that clean either...
Needless to say we stayed one night and left! It was all good though because we wound up drifting around Belgium instead.

Thanks TERI that makes me feel better. Actually the trip ended a long time ago and aside from that was a blast. We left after the first night and just drifted around drinking beer and meeting cool people along the way.
