Excellent hostel for genuine travellers. Very inviting environment. Family run with friendly owners and amazing staff. Very clean. Breakfast was great. All facilities available. Definitely run by those who travel themselves. Hope to return one day! Thank you for the stay.
Definately the best place to stay. The atmosphere is very organic and it is very easy to meet and get to know other travelers. It is a bit out of the way, but the atmosphere makes up for the longer walk. Staff is friendly and helpful, the wifi is strong all over the hostel, and the free breakfast is one of the best I've come across. Totally recommend this spot!!
This is a great hostel. I really can't fault it. Great facilities, huge kitchen, great wifi even in the rooms. You won't be disappointed
Amazing hostel. Staff are super friendly and really make you feel at home. Great atmosphere and good social environment
Good hostel, a little far out of the main tourist or bar area (in what felt like a low income residential area), but that was mentioned on the site, and easy enough to get to the main areas by walking or by tram. The showers only had one knob so no temperature control and sometimes were a little too cold for my liking, bathrooms were very clean. however, great atmosphere and really great staff. cheap drinks for happy hour and a well designed kitchen resulted in a great atmosphere.
Great community vibe, helpful staff and evening happy hour. Location was a little out of the city centre and I didn't feel particularly comfortable walking alone at night, however easily accessible from the tram. Breakfast included pancakes and eggs - big thumbs up!
The staff were helpful and the hostel atmosphere was good, to meet and get to know different people.
Ab-solutely wonderful hostel with great staff and a friendly vibe. Dorms are on the basic side, but each bed does have a power point and a light. Kitchen has everything you'd need, and the nightly happy hour is the perfect place to meet other travellers. Location is easy to reach via tram from the train station, but it is also very easy to walk into the historic centre of Antwerp.
Amazing staff made this Hostel a great place to stay! Awesome atmosphere and good place for meeting fellow travellers. Very clean and tidy.
Fantastic hostel! Rooms were nice and each bed had their own PowerPoint which was perfect. The hostel had a very chill vibe and really felt like a home. Happy hour was amazing and it was easy meeting new people. Definitely stay here!
Pros: Friendly staff Cons: 1. The room I stayed: one side is next to the entrance hallway, another side is the passage way for people to go to the kitchen/bar and common area. Thus constant noise. And the room door is just two steps away from the washing machines. One night one heard the machine spinning until around 11pm. 2. Worst mattress among all the hostels I stayed. Other: Probably not for u if u are over 30 or want a bit of rest after a full day of sightseeing.
Great hostel with some of the coolest staff a hostel could have! Amber, Jason and Laurence all made my time in Antwerp a lot of fun! Great facilities and a clean hostel!
Cool place, great people!

Had a great time at Abhostel. Fantastic facilities and staff. Very easy to meet people as a solo traveler. Shout out to the staff: Jason and Amber for being so friendly and awesome. It is a little far from the city center in a kinda trendy international/alternative part of Antwerp, but it's not too big of a deal to take public transportation or even walk if you are up for it.
All round amazing - lovely spacious, clean rooms, with comfy beds. Great chill out space and kitchen, awesome decor. Yummy breakfast with eggs and pancakes. Lovely welcoming hosts and staff - just had the most amazing fun time with them. Everyone was so helpful at every stage of my booking and stay and it was fantastic value for money too. Best hostel I've ever stayed in? Definitely! Seriously looking forward to returning to Antwerp!
Had a great stay, the staff were lovely and met some really cool people. Will definitely stay here again!
Great hostel - really friendly staff and a fantastic atmosphere.

Great hostel, easy to meet people in the common area/kitchen/outside space. Really enjoyed my stay! Nice not being in the city centre and seeing more of maybe the real Antwerp.
