Wonderful hostel - clean, comfortable, with lovely staff and free breakfast. Everyone was incredibly nice to us and the whole place has a great vibe. It's a little bit away from the centre of Antwerp but instead we got to know a great neighbourhood that we probably wouldn't have discovered otherwise. Their roof top terrace was amazing as well! I'd recommend this hostel to anyone.

Abhostel was great, and set the bar far too high for all my other hostels to meet! It was like staying in someone's home, without it feeling like they were looming over you. The atmosphere was great and super friendly and really helped everyone feel at ease enough to make friends and hang out happily. The only downside was there was no hot water in the showers, which was a real shame, but considering that was all, I'd give it a solid 9/10.

In general, it is a good hostel. Very clean, very good kitchen. When we were there, it was super calm - no atmosphere at all. It is also quite far from the city center. Also, only 2 toilets so it can mean a wait...

The place looks really cosy and the owners do everything to make you feel comfortable. Games, books, television, everything is there to spend the day or night with your newly made hostelfriends.

really good hostel. a bit of a walk from the centre of antwerp but was worth it. the owners are really friendly and there is a lot of information on things to do. the breakfast is good and the kitchen is useful if you want to cook.

Bridget and Greg were the most welcoming hosts. The huge lounge and kitchen were great, and it was nice to be able to cook our own breakfasts! Would definitely stay again

Location could be better and wifi needs to have a better signal, you can't get internet in the common area. Best Hostel I have ever stayed at

Security could be better. Showers and the lack of hot water are the biggest problem.

A good hostel run by a hospitable couple. Once arrived, guest will get a very warm welcome, a very good city map and an introduction to hostel and attractions. Tips are everywhere, which are useful or humoured. Locations is not in downtown, and guests must notice their rule of check in time and check out time, which may be not convenient enough.

One of the best hostels to stay at. Greg and Bridget will take of you. The atmosphere is amazing. Placed in a quiet part of town. Everything you need is close by.

Loved this place I wish I had longer because the hostel was great. Bridget and Greg are super friendly and knowledgeable. The location isn't great but it's easy enough to get to on the tram. I would definitely recommend is place.

Don't be scared on the walk to the hostel. The location is outside the city center and gets kind of sketchy at night, but nothing to worry about the hostel and area are very safe and everyone is friendly. Amazing staff and an amazing space. Great vibe and worth the money

Very nice housekeeper, nice place, with breakfast included (eggs, breads, jam, butter, coffee & tea, nutella...) Not sure we understood the use of the locker we used to keep our luggages the last day when we left the Abhostel... But it would be great if it was (also) available for the last day so people can leave their room and enjoy their day in the city and then come back to take their stuff before leaving the city... Anyways, very good advices on the good spots, very nice place...

Nice hostel,really cleaned sphe wc and the shower.The atmosphere is a bit to calm and quite for a youth hostel. The location is the worst thing.Situated in a really bad quartier full of strange people and the street is a sort of banlieu,specially in the evining is dangerous going out alone.To arrive in the Grote Markt you need 35 minutes by walk or 10 by bus.

Really great stay in Antwerpen. Greg was very helpful with his guide to the city. The hostel is so cute aesthetically and we thought it was worth the money. They were also stocked with speculous. The only downside was at 11am on checkout you must be out, kinda sucks if your a backpacker and need time to linger before a train or whatever. But besides that really great!
