We stayed at Hobo for one night while in Bruges with friends. We had the blue room and our friends had the romantic room. Everything was very clean and the decor was unique and very lovely. Kristin was very friendly and gave us our privacy while also being available whenever we needed her for anything. Breakfast was really great with fruits and fresh breads and a romantic omelette!! The B&B is on a quiet street only about a 10 minute walk from the centre through beautiful streets. The restaurant right around the corner had the best ribs dinner too! Great place to celebrate our anniversary...highly recommended!!

We stayed at the Hobo B&B in April for two nights, very friendly lady and the breakfast on both mornings was lovely - only 5 minute walk to the main square in Bruges. if you come out of the B & B and turn right and right again down to the canal - just by the brigde is a great resturant, not cheap - but where is now - but very good.

I stayed in the black and white room, which lived up to it's name in terms of the colour scheme! Lovely old box cameras on the mantlepiece, black and white photos (arty body shots, so pick another room if you're deeply conservative!), and an ensuite shower and basin. The pressure's not great in the shower, but very hot water is available at all times. As other reviews have stated, it's an oldish house so the floorboards are creaky, something you're aware of both in your own room and if there are guests above you. This isn't a hotel, so don't expect the bed to be made etc when you return after a day out. Also, the heater does need to be on pretty much all the time if you feel the cold, and it would have been nice if the room had been warmed up a little prior to my arrival. Additionally, the curtains are white netting type fabric so take an eye mask if you're the type to wake up as soon as it gets light. The TV has Belgian channels and around four English/American channels that are subtitled and usually showing stuff like CSI/ Friends/make over shows etc.The road is quiet, and it's a lovely 10 minute stroll to the centre, past lots of shops and restaurants, and a medium sized supermarket nearby. The reason I stayed here was others glowing reviews of the breakfast, and this did not disappoint. While other places also serve cheese, meat, bread etc, the quality of the produce here is much better, and I can't praise the presentation enough-little flowers and chopped up green bits as accents on the dishes, really charming. Kristin will also cook something for you -an egg, omelette (if you're veggie or non pork, make sure she knows) or delicious little pancakes. There is loads too, so I made up sandwiches and took some of the wrapped cheeses with me to snack on in the day. Bear in mind that it's assumed you will have breakfast, so make sure you inform Kristin if you plan not to, as otherwise the hard work goes to waste. You'd be daft not to really, as it's at a very civilised 8:30-10am and she's pretty flexible about that. The dining room is open all day, with cutlery, bowls, hot water etc and heaps of different teas available. I liked the decor too and it's nice to stay somewhere that's decorated with a bit of artistic flair and individuality that isn't "in yer face" about it. Kristin is pleasant and helpful and was kind enough to call a taxi for me when I needed it. There is a noticeable cigarette smell in the hallways but not in the rooms, and if you smoke then you can do so in peace just outside the house. One thing I would mention is that the stairs are very narrow, not so much in width but in terms of the tread (you have to kind of first position ballet your way down if you see what I mean) so keep that in mind if you have any mobility/balance issues. Kristin gave me the internet pass code and I had no trouble accessing the internet from my room. All in all a nice, comfortable place to stay, a cut above your average B&B.

We stayed 5 nights at Hobo B&B and we would suggest it to friends for many reason.
It's at walking distance to main turist attractions in Bruges but in a quiet and silent street. Room was clean and the shared toilet wasn't a problem at all, it was very clean! In the room with had shower, hairdrier, towels, shower gel etc
but most of all Kristi, B&B owner is very kind, not only giving you suggestions regarding the city, but preparing a delicious and lovely breakfast in the beautiful breakfast room.
She helped us when we had a flu and we won't forget it.
