Had a nice weekend away at this hostel. Cozy beds are always a treat at hostels and also the big kitchen is really cool. The owners are very nice and helpful, too. The tram is just a few minutes away and you get to the city centre and other spots really quick.
Very bad location. Not a nice area at all. Owners were great and helped us plan our stay, but there are no reception staff as such. Nice design inside. Probably well suited to a longer stay. Lots of board games, washing machine, many DVDs but the TV didn't actually work. Quite possible to meet people.
A little bit out of the way but this hostel is very much worth the walk (or short tram ride). An incredibly nice home like community feeling that is rare to find in a hostel. The spacious common room area is fantastic for meeting people, especially over breakfast and dinner. This really is a fantastic hostel that I'd heartily recommend to anyone after a friendly place to rest their head.
Absolutely amazing hostel: great kitchen and common room, wifi works everywhere, run by amazingly knowledgeable friendly people and everything is clean. Really could not recommend more. The location is quite good. There could be more toilets and showers. But apart from that - a really great hostel.
We had a twin private room and it was great. very clean and tidy. Staff are fantastic. No noise problems at all. close to tram stop/shops. 5min tram to city centre
most amazing, sure this must be the best hostel in all of antwerp
Great atmosphere, nice addition of eggs to the standard tea-and-toast breakfast - the hostel was a little far from the city center but close to tram lines, etc. Met some nice people here!
This is one of the most spacious hostels I have ever been to!! I stayed in 12 bed dorm and had a really nice stay there even though its location is not the best, the staffs and owner coule make up to that.
The staff are absolutely amazing and so welcoming. The rooms are pretty nice -- the whole hostel is very put together. There's a nice kitchen and spacious common area -- it's easy to meet people. It's about a 25 min walk to the Grotmarkt and a 15 min walk to the main train station, but there's a bus stop right off the street. The neighborhood is fine -- just a large population of Moroccan families. The staff will give you an alternative route if you're uncomfortable with that.
Incredible family run hostel. So much space to hang out. Awesome facilities. Short walk or tram to the centre. Staff are incredible.
Great little hostel in quite a central location ( easy access to a festival at Trix and the train station) Super helpful and friendly owners. Overall the hostel had a really great vibe and atmosphere.
great place, nice people, will definetly come back sometime

One of the greatest hostels we ever stayed at. Stayed here both in 2010 and 2014 and it was always great.
Nice quiet hostel, the owners were great to get ideas 2 look about the city
We enjoyed our stay at AbHostel. We especially enjoyed meeting an chatting with the owners. Our room was very nice.
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 :)
Location a bit out of the way, but only a 10 minute bike ride to the train station if you rent the city bikes. Cute layout and decorations. Kitchen abailable to use and free breakfast. Common area has plenty of reading space, TV, book swap, and beer vending machine. Very clean and lockers in each room. I'd recommend it.
Hostel in good place with a cheerful atmosphere.

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!
