Mons is such a pretty place. The Grand Place has no reason to be envious of its namesake in Brussels. Paved from end to end and surrounded by buildings steeped in history, it’s a place where people stop, admire the view, take a seat in a little café and wonder why they didn’t come here sooner.
Free Wi-Fi everywhere
The hostel is located in the centre of Mons, just beneath the Belfry, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 3 minutes from the stunning Grand Place and only 1 km from the Santiago Calatrava-designed train station.
Hainaut and its capital city, Mons, are a microcosm of the Walloon Region, encapsulating its age-old beauty that persists to this day, its glorious industrial past, its cultural heritage and its folklore – the Ducasse de Mons festival.
Head outside the city and things are no less stunning. Take a stroll along the towpaths that border the Canal du Centre and admire the locks and boat lift. And the Pairi Daiza zoo and botanical garden is within easy reach, too.
The hostel is the idea base for the exhilarating Ducasse de Mons festival and the Doudou, visiting SPARKOH!, soaking up the atmosphere across the city during the Festival au Carré, or coming face to face with the pandas at Pairi Daiza.
Whether you’re staying alone, as a couple or in a group, our hostel has exactly what you need – double rooms, family rooms and dormitories for larger groups.
We have 29 rooms (2, 3, 4 and 6 beds), or 109 beds in total.
Every room has free Wi-Fi.

Food & drink
The price per night at all our hostels includes a sustainable buffet breakfast made from fresh, local, responsibly sourced produce.
Every hostel has a bar, which is the main focal point for socialising. It’s where the action happens! The bar serves a great range of drinks (also local), plus light meals and refreshments (subject to availability).
For groups of 10 or more, please contact the youth hostel to benefit from our specially designed menus. We make a point of working with local suppliers and sourcing seasonal produce, so you get menus that everyone will love!
