HOW TO REACH US
From Bruges’ central railway station, you can easily take bus 4, 13. Get off at the 5th stop, called ‘Brugge Keizer Karel’ , take Ezelstraat street until you reach nr.42.
After 20 o’clock you’ll need to take bus 41 or 42 from the station. Get off at the 4th stop (the stop is called ‘Ezelpoort’). Walk back in the opposite direction until you meet the Ezelstraat on your left side. At this street, on number 42, is the hostel.
Planning on going by bus several times? Ask the driver for the cheaper ‘10 rides’ ticket.
By far, the cheapest way of travelling. On foot, getting to the hostel would take you 30 minutes. In the station itself, there’s a tourist information office where you can ask for a city map. Once outside, you’ll moreover find a big city plan just across the bus terminal.
Zaventem and Charleroi are Belgium’s main airports.
Zaventem: This airport disposes of its own railway station. From there on, you can easily get to Brussels (Nord/Central/South) where you can then swap trains to Bruges.
Charleroi: In contrast to Zaventem, making your way out of Charleroi by train is slightly more difficult. You’d better opt for the Flibco-bus, directly taking you to Bruges (www.flibco.com). In case you’d still prefer a journey by train, however, you’ll have to grab a cab/airport shuttle to ‘Charleroi South’-station after which you get on a train to Bruges.
Coming by car? Then you’d best park your vehicle near the railway station. A 24 hour parking ticket costs €3,5 and includes a free ride by public transport. Do you prefer a covered and secured parking? Find Biekorf at a walking distance (Biekorf). Last but not least, you can just as well park your car for free outside the surrounding ring road.
Don’t travel by turtle. This is a pure torture!
