Do not visit this city, it is totally unsafe. Take the shuttle from the airport directly to Brussels, even the Brussels Midi train station is safer than any part of this ghetto city.

Used to be very dangerous a couple of years ago, I frequently took the airplane from Charleroi as the low cost flights depart from Charleroi and not Brussels. I got harassed and assaulted multiple times at the train station. Recently however police cracked down on crime at the South train station, so it feels way safer than it was a couple of years ago. I would say it is safe during the day to take the train to/from Charleroi, though if you are a woman I advise you to dress moderately to avoid harassment from arab gangs.
