Génération Europe Youth Hostel
Great place to stay
Clean, convenient, good atmosphere with friendly staff. Free parking is great. The location in Molenbeek is special but not dangerous. The BF is very good and plentiful, with good coffee and juice, although it is of course not a hotel buffet.

Terrible Customer Service
I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights.. I am a tourist doing solo travelling around Europe. As a traveller from the Far East, I was expecting that Westeners are more helpful and friendly most especially to tourist, similar to Asian hospitality. However, the receptionist in this hostel tends to be annoyed whenever I order drinks and food. He said he is counting his money and told me to wait for the next receptionist coming. He never smiles, very sarcastic and horrible. It is very obvious and I can see from his eyes that he doesn't like his job. He should quit or stay at home.

This not an hotel but a room for backpackers who are tired of sleeping outside. There is no services, ao you have to make your bed, rent towels, buy soap, ect.

Fair price for "close to center" location, walking available. Breakfast could have more "choices". Stairs could see vacuum cleaner.
