One of the greatest hostels we ever stayed at. Stayed here both in 2010 and 2014 and it was always great.

Absolutely loved this place! stayed in a lot of hostels on our trip and this was the best by miles! The hosts are amazing, so cool and friendly. Would highly recommend this place to everyone, go to antwerp just to stay here! The location is like 20+ mins walk to town but that was fine, worth it for the place :)

Comfy beds, super clean, plenty of lockers. Nice area, cheap supermarkets, 20 mins walk from city centre. Informative, friendly staff, people always around. Great common area, especially kitchen. You can do ALL of your own cooking if you like. Recommended!

ABHostel is adorable, the staff is super friendly (they even put out breakfast early on a day that I had to leave by 7:30 am!), and the lounge area is a fun place to hang out and talk to fellow travelers. My biggest complaint was that it was a bit out of the way, location wise, but even then it was super easy to get into the old town and get around the city because of its proximity to tram stops.

Location is a good 20 minute walk (or 5-10 minute tram ride) from the city center. Clean, friendly staff, with lockers in the room. Value for money. Note that Borgerhout is quite mixed racially and while it was totally safe - I had no untoward experiences - some people might not feel very comfortable in such a neighbourhood. However, I'll urge you to try...it's quite safe, really.

We loved the feel of this unique and personal hostel! It had a great vibe to it and was really comfortable. The kitchen was great to use, I loved the free eggs at breakfast time and there was a really nice common-room area. I only had one problem with this hostel and it was the quality of the internet. It was very slow if you were lucky enough for it to even connect! also it is a fair way out of the city if you're walking or riding and it perhaps not the nicest areas ever. Great place!!

This is a very cool hostel with a lot of personality. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful, and they have created a very social atmosphere there (but not in a loud annoying way). I was traveling by myself and instantly had lots of friends to do things with - I still keep in touch with all of them! The hostel is secure but the neighborhood is not so great so don't want back by yourself at night - take the tram or find some buddies. I would recommend this hostel for sure!

decorated in a personal style, lot s of thinking and work, feels like home. nice terrace. personnally I appreciated the calm and quietness, athmossphere of confidence: there are lockers if you like but but no control on evreything: key is on the lockers, you use it if you need, washing machines: use them when you need and leave money in the box. lots of space, nice terrace.nevertheless some rooms might be noisy, when the hostel is full (window to common area),

Really nice and cozy atmosphere. Lovely vintage interior, a lot of maps and information material. Plus a cool roof terrasse. The breakfast which is self-service could be more various though!

Great common area and good kitchen and bathrooms. Really nice, relaxed place, not a huge amount of atmosphere though. Also strange you can't leave luggage or stay in the hostel after checkout. This is the only hostel I've ever found this in and the owners are otherwise really nice so I don't understand! Otherwise great though, I'd come back.

Naomi was a very friendly receptionist, and the owner Greg was also very welcoming to all the guests. The rooms were spacious, but there was only one bathroom for all the dorms. The location is not ideal since it's quite far from the historical district, but it's still close to public transportation and the price makes up for that.

My stay at Abhostel was nothing but comfortable. The staff is very helpful when providing information regarding what is around the hostel that might facilitate your stay in Antwerp. The location is very convenient and not far at all from the city's center. Rooms are clean daily like clockwork, but the facility in general is very well kept.
