The owners we nice. Breakfast was not as good as bragged about- it was rather disappointing. Way to many mosquitoes in the room at night-- the first night sucked because they were at least 50 mosquitoes trying to bite at you while you sleep and many succeeded!

We are nice ;) we gave you mussles to taste, next day a bowl of fresh vegetable soup,... We putted anti mosquito fences, bought anti mosquito plugs,... So if needed anything else, please ask us! Most of our guests are happy with our free breakfast (eggs, bread, cornflakes, marmelades, chocopastas, speculoospasta, free coffee tea, water, all day!) as you only pay 20 euro a night. We offer a lot for FREE. I am sorry for you, you could not appreciate all of this! Happy travels! I

Excellent hostel! although a bit far from the city center -15 minutes walk from the central station. Clean bathrooms. Huge common room really nicely decorated; big kitchen. basic free breakfast. The owners are wonderful people and really helpful. I really enjoyed my 2 night stay in the 12 bed dorm. lots of hip new bars around and a really lively young community. I loved Antwerp and if I come back i'll definetly stay here again!!

We had a great stay in AbHostel Antwerp. The family is really friendly and gives you a lot of information about the city at your arrival. A big kitchen and living room make your stay really comfortable.

You can tell pretty early on when a hostel is run by fellow travellers. Bridget and Greg are so warm and friendly from the start, assisting with ideas on where to go, eat and drink, and settling you in very quickly. And they have made their hostel the perfect home away from home...from the spacious dorms to the beautiful terrace, the comfy lounge room and well equipped kitchen- this is how a hostel should be. Small, independently run, and easy to meet great people.

Had a very nice stay at Abhostel, Greg and Brenda (owners and operators) are very accommodating and made our stay awesome. Every hostel should be run the way this one is with a very inviting and welcoming environment, almost makes you feel as if you are at home. During our stay we had the pleasure of attending Greg's birthday party at the hostel which he invited all guests down to the common area for a beer and appetizers! That's how it's done! Definitely recommend!

This hostel is not like the usual hostels. Having all comfort and services of the best hostels joined with the friendly atmosphere of the owner and of the other guests. The right place for know other young travellers from all world. (The lounge space on the rooftop was too lovley...) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This hostel was amazing. They have really put their time and effort into making it an ideal hostel. Felt like I was staying at a friends more than a hostel!

I really enjoyed my stay at Abhostel and in Antwerp in general. The hostel is really homely and Greg was great giving me a tour of the place before giving tips on what to see and do during my visit. The breakfast is good and kitchen great for cooking dinners etc. Also a good place to relax with DVDs for watching and a nice common area. Rooms are also big and clean. A bit of a walk from the centre of town. But nothing major, also regular trams from the centre.

Such a cool hostel, and Greg, Bridget and their sons are very friendly. Robert, the eldest son gave us some really good tips about what to do in Antwerp. And the decor is amazing and you get eggs for breakfast and speculoos pasta!

Hi! Thanks for finding us very good! We try to be the best we can:) . That weekend there were no trams only buses like we explained to you! This was once in a life time,maintenance. Now trams ride again every few min. And even without a tram or bus it s less than 15 min walk! Enjoy your travels! Xbridget

Greg was very helpful. Thanks to him we were able to do activities beyond the standard tourist attractions. Besides that we really enjoyed the fact that if we needed Greg or his wife we could easily call them (with an intercom-like system), but they were not constantly walking around. Breakfast on the other hand was meagre

We re happy you could enjoy the local Greg tips beyond the touristy stuff. Glad we could always be at your service ;). We re a bit surprised about your meagre breakfast comment. Perhaps our concept is not really what you were looking for!? We would be thankfull if you could explain your comment! Best wishes! Xbridget
