Profile: Saint-Josse-ten-Noode

Profile: Saint-Josse-ten-Noode

Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, just north of Brussels’ center, is home to a mishmash of cultures, meaning you’re just as likely to get an excellent kebab or a delicious curry as some Belgian fries. Colorful jazz-inspired street art sprinkles the neighborhood for passersby to enjoy; don’t miss the legendary “Couleurs Café” mural near Place Saint-Josse.

A cultural center in a former botanical glasshouse, Le Botanique’s regular concerts, exhibitions, and theater shows are worth checking out, as are its lush surrounding gardens. Get your art fix at the Neo-Baroque Saint-Josse Church or Carlier Museum, then kick back in one of the area’s eclectic bars.

    The hostal is alright. The charger next to my bed did not work so i had to charge it somewhere else. The sound coming from the main are was too loud and could not sleep most days. The area around the hostal felt unsafe and sketchy. Overall really clean and staff very friendly.

    Good stay. Hopeless wifi.

    Second time stay at the hostel. Really good value for money especially for a short stay. It is clean and staff was nice and friendly. Only thing which is lacking is wifi signal (which was frankly terrible and had no wifi in room on the third floor). There is no lift which was not a problem for me. Rooms overlook a courtyard which can be quite noisy late evening.

    The hostel is set in a nice enough area. The building is historic and has a courtyard that the hostel is set around.

    Chambre sans Artiste:))

    Check-in was at 16.00 not 15.00.For basic stay in Bruxelles nothing to complain. Probably cleaner was trying to access my room around 7am-8am day after...I was still in.Very good location and walking distance to old town.I had a single room,french balcony and sink in the room.Friendly receptionist.I would recommend anyway.
