Trendy hostel on the French border

Contemporary, sustainable, light and airy. With its impressive smooth, red walls with large square windows, the new Groeninghe Hostel makes a big impression on passers-by and international visitors. You will be within walking distance of the centre and train station and sleep in a spacious room with en-suite bathroom. On the ground floor, the large windows bring the outside inside. Here you will find the reception - at which you will be warmly received - together with a bar, dining room and conference rooms.

Kortrijk - Designer gem in the Westhoek

Kortrijk is a city of extremes. The museums and rich history of the city mesh seamlessly with the contemporary Kortrijk that is focused on modern design. The city hosts the Biënnale Interieur international design fair and there are new architectural pearls popping up on a regular basis. The K shopping centre, the renovated Leieboorden park and the Groeninghe Hostel are just a few examples. Are you planning a trip close to home, a trip to France or a visit to the WW1 memorial sites in the Westhoek region? Then Kortrijk is the perfect location for you.
