Are you looking for high-quality accommodation in Bruges for a low price? Our hostel in Bruges offers budget-friendly accommodation for individuals or groups of diverse sizes. We’re not just a budget hotel, we offer our guests a unique experience and the opportunity to meet other travellers from all over the world.

An international accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of Bruges

Bruges is known for its wonderful city centre, but the lesser known and more quiet parts are no less interesting. The Europa Hostel gives you the best of both worlds: you get to stay in an affordable accommodation within walking or cycling distance of beautiful Bruges, but outside the centre so you can enjoy some peace and quiet after a busy day in the city. It is without a doubt one of the nicest hostels in Belgium. In this budget hotel you’ll meet backpackers, families, and groups from all four corners of the globe. Our favourite places to relax and socialise are the bar (with lots of Belgian beers, as is appropriate for good accommodation in Belgium), the lounge with a pool table and the sunny terrace.

Bruges, a historic and romantic city

This UNESCO World Heritage City has everything a city needs to attract travellers from Belgium and abroad. There’s medieval streets and buildings, canals, charming shopping streets and many cultural sights. Foodies will be in their element as Bruges is home to Michelin-starred restaurants, a beer museum, and world-class chocolatiers. If you are looking for nature as well as the city trip experience, you can visit the nearby nature areas that surround the city of Bruges.
