Hostel itself was very clean, great rooms in a great location in relation to transport. However the staff very indifferent, unhelpful and sadly incompetent and they didn't know how much we owed them for our booking nor seemed knowledgeable about the area. Would go back again for the hostel's facilities, location and price but don't expect anything helpful from the desk nor any atmosphere (but we were there on a quiet Sunday night).

The hostal is great in many senses. It's well located, clean, comfortable, and the staff is helpful. Showers are clean and spacious.

Thank you so much Raquel! You are always welcom at Alias!


No automatic lock on doors, less safe if someone forgets to lock the door. Shower's hot water pressure very low. But bed was ok, breakfast ok. Just not my best experience so far


Dirty and run down place, seriously one of the dingiest hostels I've lived in.

Hi Peter, Thanks for letting us know. We will change the knob! Kind regards Lies


Nice hostel about 20 minutes walk from the centre of antwerp. 24 hour access was good. Breakfast was available free of charge consisting of cereal. The communal area downstairs was a bit small but we didn't spend too much time there. Not overly cheap but it was good value and overall an enjoyable stay.

It's an old, shady building. It's very basic. I am giving it a low rate as there has been only invested in the very necesarry and basic things, like a bed, a sink and curtains. Toilets, walls, showers, carpetting and everything is old and there's even a bad smell in the hall ways too. If you just want to sleep and explore Antwerp, it's fine. Don't expect more. Bram
