airport and trains to Brussels are very frequent (about
every 20 mins I think) and cheap. I think I would

There are reasonable youth hostels in Brussels, at least
one within easy walking from the station. Brussels also
has a great many quite cheap hotels and Bed and Breakfasts.
I know its not what you wanted to hear but in Europe trains
and buses are a lot better than I find people in the US
often think they are (though I personally find perceptions
of buses in the US to also be distorted and I've never had
a problem with them).
