This hostel is very dirty, the sheets don't get changed. You can smoke in the downstairs common room and the communal kitchen is very dirty compared to other hostels.
Only positive is that the staff are very friendly and generous.

It was still pretty early in the day so we decided to see the sights and caught a bus into downtown. It didn't take long for us to wind the streets into the heart of Brussels and we got off immediately at the Manneken Pis statue which is a little boy weeing.

They headed off home at 9, and as it was a nice evening we decided to have a little walk around, visiting places we hadn't seen yet, before heading back to the hotel for some much needed sleep!
... which was out in the suburbs of Brussels. We took the tram through the suburbs to get there and it really reminded me of Boston! Anyway, the museum was gorgeous. I wish I had had more time there to explore and see the special exhibits, but I know I'll be back so I guess it's not a big deal... I was a bit surprised by the museum though because I was expecting more on Belgium's involvement in the Congo. While there were a lot of African artifacts in the ...
... different kinds of condiments to go along with them (none of which were ketchup or mustard). I enjoyed some pink colored one that had a little spice to it. After everyone had enough, they brought out desert. It was a plate of fruit along with a pot of melted chocolate. We then dipped the fruit into the chocolate and enjoyed. It was a good way to make a health snack into an unhealthy one, but we didn't ...
