I absolutely would not recommend staying there! We booked 6 nights at Yannick's house and left after 4 because it was so unpleasant. Everything was really run down and a bit disgusting. Also it's quite far from the city center, not that big of a deal but a bit annoying at night. But the main problem was that Yannick (and her boyfriend/husband, whom we never saw but heard) were extremely uncomfortable to be around. During our second night we woke up at 2:30 in the morning because they were obviously drunk and screaming around, slamming doors and running up and down the house.
After that we didn't see her again till our early checkout, when she was downright rude.

Our stay started out well – our host Yannick was friendly and enthusiastic. She provided a map and some suggestions for activities. But when we asked if we could use the kitchen, we were told ‘No, you are on holidays so you should be eating out’. Unfortunately, restaurants are not really nearby, and the supermarket (about 20-minute walk away) doesn’t open on Sundays. We were, however, allowed to re-heat food in the microwave oven.
There was very little communication from Yannick after that, although we heard lots of her arguments and other social ‘interactions’ with her partner for the three days we were there. This made it difficult to arrange for our departure (for returning the key and the key-bond).
The location is OK, if you like walking. It takes about 25 minutes to walk into the centre of town if you are a very quick walker. The neighbourhood is pleasant and quiet, and there is plenty of free parking in the street, a nearby Laundromat and a nice park.
The house is old, musty and stained in parts. We were in the room on the third floor (not the one pictured on the website), so we were not really bothered by the smoking on the second floor. While our room was spacious and had excellent natural light, the electric light was very dim and it was impossible not to bump our heads on it regularly. The room was very hot. To counter this, we opened the window on the first night, only to be eaten alive by mosquitos. The next night we kept the window shut, but the result was worse. My travelling companion could count 22 bites on face and ears alone. We asked Yannick if she had any mosquito repellent we could use as we had been unable to find any at the supermarket in town. She replied ‘No, other travellers brought it with them. You should keep the window shut for protection’.
The bathroom was not clean, and there were holes in its walls.
Warning to travellers: if you come in summer, ensure you have mosquito repellent. If you come in winter, bring slippers as you will be required to take your shoes off at the door and I suspect that the floors will be very cold.
The rules are following:
1. Deposit is 10€ for the keys
2. Shower can't be used after 23:00
3. Check out time is 10:00 , 10€ for penalty after 10:00 (In fact, we were asked to leave in 10 mins at about 9:40 because Yannick wants to going out)
Loudly speak between Yannick and her boy friend in the night and the sink in the room is blocked.
However, Yannick leaved a lovely map of Brugge for us and the room and restroom are clean. It took us 25-30 mins for walk to the city center.
I stayed here one night with my girlfriend. Basically the room met our expectations. I would recommend this place if you have only a limited amount of money to spend on your accommodation.
The house is in a peaceful neighborhood, with a nice walk you can reach the centre of Brugge (for us it took around 20 minutes). There was a supermarket on the way where we could pack up with food and beer.
I think the description explains the conditions pretty well and we did not have any problems during our stay.
the room is good, a little far from the center, 15 minutes on foot.
Bruges is wonderful!
CHEAP but NOT RACCOMANDED! Unpleasant environment, reception very cold and unfriendly. good location in the city.
My girlfriend and I we spent 2 nights at Yannick's and to be honest I don't suggest to anyone this place to sleep because it was a smelly place, it seemed old and untidy you can't turn on the lights of the stairs and corridor,the toilet is downstairs and you need to use a lantern if you want to go during the night,the toilet is beside the kitchen and it looks horrible.Yannick is quite noisy when she speaks to her boyfriend who lives there,anyway I don't recomend this place.
We decided to ask for Yannick's hospitality despite many comments were definitely discouraging. We thought that some travellers might be more picky than us, that standards are different etc.
Unfortunately we have to agree with the bad remarks made by the others.
We strongly discourage you from booking this room. It is extremely unhealthy, cold, full of mold and dust. Some problems at the sewage system are patent. There is a lot of noise in the early morning/late evening.
However, Yannick is a kind soul and the place is quite close to the center (15 min walking from the walls) so if you love extreme adventure you might still decide to give it a go...
