Good, social place! The owners are very nice! Averagely clean. Was a little awkward to have to walk partly through the common area to get to the showers. A bit out from city center, but located in an actual neighborhood, so not surrounded by tourists. I'd stay again!
Abhostel is friendly and welcoming with a good atmosphere and some nice features: outside area; beer happy hour; funky communal area. Unfortunately, we didn't particularly like the area around the hostel, albeit that it is not that far to the centre. We had a private room (twin) but this was situated in one of the dorms, separated only by a glass panelled door with a blind, which was disappointing. The room was also a bit cold and the sheets could do with replacing as they look and feel dated.
Excellent hostel, the place is clean and organized, the staff is extremly friendly and common area is a great place to meet people.
Amazing staff who truely care, breakfast is awesome so great to have pancakes and eggs after travelling for so long! Great atmosphere try make you feel right at home. Shame it's about of a walk to the centre but totally worth it!!!!!
Really amazing hostel. Close to the city and many tram lines, this hostel was very clean and had plenty of space in the rooms. It was easy to meet and talk to other travelers. Beer at happy hour is reasonably priced. The showers only have one temperature, which is mostly lukewarm and occasionally hot. The staff is very friendly and the placed geared for travelers. The kitchen is well equipped, although the fridge is small. Overall, a pleasant experiences.
By far the best hostel experience we had on our trip across Europe. At first we were intimidated by the location, but the staff/owners made us feel very comfortable. Very good vibes, awesome kitchen and hang out area, friendly staff. 10/10 would stay there longer if we could have.
You should definitely stay here. Great place to meet and hang out with people. Really chilled-out vibe. Owner I met was lovely and obviously intended to create the great atmosphere. There is some good stuff in the area but the location could be slightly closer to the cbd. Although I suspect that part of the charm of this place is inherent in the fact that it isn't right in the cbd. The way the people working here talk bout the place is testament to how good it is. Oh, and great beer menu!
Staff was great! Excellent hostel for solo travelers. Nice kitchen facility. You're out of the way from the downtown which has pros and cons but the staff will tell you cool places to go in the neighborhood.
The location is far from the center, about 20 min walk. The main entrance works with a code and (specifically my room) had no key, so it was always open. The beds are made and the lockers are inside the room. The staff is one of the greatest, helpful, friendly and talkative. Making social dinners and pubcrawls. The facilities are great too, a small TV cinema in the hall, great kitchen and living room, lots of places to seat and backyard with BBQ and hammocks.
Absolutely amazing hostel. I stayed during Greg's birthday and had a great time. ABHostel definitely made my stay in Antwerp worth it. It's a small hostel where everyone interacts with each other. The staff makes sure you have a good time, and are very knowledgable on the area. Beer is cheap, wifi is good, and there are even hammocks on the patio; you can't ask for much more. Trust me, if you stay here, you won't regret it.
Very nice hostel, feels like living in a community. The staff were very friendly.
this hostel is phenomenal! I was supposed to stay for two days, but ended up being there 8. the atmosphere is so beautifully chill, and the staff are great! I would recommend abhostel to anyone.
Very personal hostel. Small and cozy. It was Greg, the owners, birthday while we were there and he bought us all beer that night. It's ran by travellers so friendships had been formed and new comers are taken in with a grain of salt. Wonderful place overall, wouldn't mind bigger lockers.
awesome hostel. dont be put of by the location
In general a very nice hostel with great staff. It felt like there were not enough showers and toilets for the amount of people staying there, though. Also a bit uncomfortable that showers and bathrooms were located in the same, very small room (unisex). They should at least add a door between shower stalls and bathroom stalls.

Best hostel I've stayed in so far, well run and great atmosphere :) one of the staff named Caitlin was especially helpful and welcoming. Would recommend this place to anyone.
Really lovely staff and atmosphere! Evan and Caitlin cooked the best dinners and were very helpful! Would definitely recommend.
Perfect! This is a unique hostel that has good facilities. However the thing that sets this apart from other hostels is the staff. I would stay here again in a heart beat!
Amazing hostel, lovely staff and really nice space/rooms. Good free breakfast and happy hour two euro beers in the evening- good location near city bikes and a carrefour, 15 mins to the station. Would definitely stay again :)
Really great atmosphere, lots of things to do, and boat loads of character
