Brussels Génération Europe Youth Hostel

From 20.00 per night

The Génération Europe Youth Hostel is ideally situated near the Brussels canal, barely 15 minutes from the Grand-Place and 10 minutes from rue Antoine Dansaert, for shopping enthusiasts, and from the Saint-Géry district for those who love to party. The hostel has a large open area, a very special feature in the heart of the capital of Europe.

The hostel is also unique in Brussels in having the facilities to welcome camping cars / motorhomes. To provide this service, it has five parking places, a refuelling area where waste water can be discharged and the tank refilled, and a battery charging area. The rates are available on request and include access to the hostel’s facilities (bar, free Wi-Fi, etc.).

The Génération Europe Youth Hostel offers numerous stays for groups with or without activities. Among friends, as a family or with your school, make the most of young, friendly accommodation full of good cheer!

Group stays in our hostels offer the opportunity to explore new cultures, to take part in a host of activities, and to visit a wide range of tourist attractions.

The Génération Europe Youth Hostel offers the following facilities:

You can choose between a group stay with or without activities.

Stays with activities are traditionally intended for school groups, but any other kind of group can request to take part in activities that we have prepared.

Stays with activities: the best there is for schools!

Our activities programmes are run by a team of teachers and professional activity leaders. These programmes are drawn up in consultation with your group leader and our staff.

The brochure on our stays with activities available in all the youth hostels gives the titles of each of the programmes and the pages that refer to the Socles de Compétences or the Compétences terminales et savoirs requis, official documents from schools in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.

Our educational adviser is the person to contact if you have any questions about the stays with activities, but you can, of course, also contact the activities team at the youth hostel of your choice directly, or consult the specific programmes via the links below:
