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

Pros: Clean, quiet neighbourhood, close enough to get to the main train station by foot, big lockers and free maps! Cons: stairs are very narrow, no elevator, breakfast is light

Alias is good if you're looking for something quiet and calm, but if you're looking for atmosphere and want to meet people, go elsewhere.

The worst hostel I have stayed up to now in the world. I don't recommend to anybody!

Nothing wrong with Alias Youth Hostel. If you want to just spend the night in comfort for doing whatever you want to do in Antwerp, Alias is a good choice for a fair price. And there is a breakfast included.

It's just a place to sleep - not more, not less. The rooms are very tiny, it was dirty on the floors. No real place to hangout and meet others. Price was ok.

Location is so-so as it's not in city centre, although only 15, 20 minutes walk away. Area might seem dodgy at night. Otherwise, very friendly hostel, great staff, clean amenities, great breakfast spread.

Wifi worked poorly and I think you should consider more secure password to the door access. Otherwise the place was good bang for buck. Thank you.

About 15 min walk from station, which is good. Room was ok with own sink. We wanted to check out at 8 to catch the train but receptionist was too busy with other things and locked the reception door. Wasn't friendly either.

Quite happy with the stay as staff is friendly and place is convenient. Easy to get around. Definitely value for money.

I would definitely return to this hostel, its a good value for money. The location is not the best and I there is no kitchen at all, but overall our 2-day stay was nice. The breakfast was excellent and bathrooms were clean. If the windnw was not broken in our privat room, we could even close it properly not to hear the noise from the construction site next door.. Therefore earplugs needed!

The hostel was basic but this reflects in the prize, so that was alright. The beds were ok, so were the showers. It was very easy to get to the city centre, less then 10 minutes with the public transport. You can park your car in the hostels street for €3,80 a day.
