Gastama Lille Hostel is only 10 minutes walk from the Lille stations and city center.
From the train station “Gare Lille Flandres”: take the Number 10 bus from the main bus stop just in front of the station (there is only one direction so if you are on the Number 10 bus you are going the right way) for about 10 minutes and get off at the stop “rue Magasin”. Gastama is just around the corner. You will have just passed by us!
NB. You can buy a ticket on the bus but make sure you stamp it in the machine or its not valid!

I did not like this hotel. Aside from it not being particularly clean there was just something about the staff and security that as a single person travelling on my own, I did not just did not feel safe. Consider staying somewhere else.

I walked here from the central station and it took about 20 minutes, but the walk was nice through the old own of Lille! They have great beers and the bar is cool. The rooms are very comfy and I liked the individual pod style beds.

I absolutely loved Gastama Hostel. Lille itself is pretty small, but really cute and the staff at Gastama gave me loads of cool stuff to do while I was there. The bathrooms were always clean, and the bar had a great selection of local beers which is always great!!
