This hostel is very clean and modern and has great security. One warning - Solo travellers: this is quite an isolating place to stay, so if you're hoping to meet new people, don't stay here. They also do not have a communal kitchen so had to buy food out.


Rooms were super clean and well maintained, location was good about 10 minutes from main shopping street and bars/restaurants… it was a bit dead on a Thursday night but I guess it is September


Stayed in a paribate double room. I have just one bad thing to tell about this place, there is no wifi in the rooms. Part from that this place is just perfect! The staff is awesome and very helpfull. The room was very spacious and and clean. Love this place and would stay here again!


Room was a great size for the amount of people, 4pp - 2x single beds and 1x bunks with some tables and chairs and large bench with lockers and hanging space above. Building is good/looks fairly new, modern, nice bar area, large breakfast hall. Breakfast was good, toast/cereal/yoghurt/meat/cheese/juice/coffee. Not very much atmosphere, no Wi-Fi in rooms. Good neighbourhood, lots of nice shops, canal/cathedral/grote market area only a 5-10min walk away. Staff were helpful.


The facilities are new and clean. there is no wifi in the rooms, only in the lobby-what is a downside.


Possibly the most annoying hostel I've ever stayed in. First of all the wifi only works in reception not in the rooms and you have to keep putting the password in to log in again and again because it keeps going. There's nothing happening in the bar and very rarely people there you'd get a better atmosphere in a haunted house if I'm honest. The rooms were ok but we were put in a room catering for wheelchair users. If your travelling on your own, avoid this place!


Excellent place to stay, the only bad thing is that there is not wifi on the rooms


Location is outstanding. Rooms are very basic, but sheets are clean. Staff are very helpful. Would definitely recommend.


Great hostel. Very clean, central and the staff was very helful. Breakfast was nice and surprisingly included fresh fruit. I would have preferred a hostel with a kitchen so that I could have cooked but it was still a great place. The Wifi really only worked in the cafeteria and the lobby. Not that big a problem, but I would prefer to browse and book trips in my room. While this place was very clean, it lacked a common area, which made it more difficult to meet people.


I liked the room and the hostel was fine - there were lots of families and kids and the staff had incorrectly booked a five year old in my room- which I found inappropriate


Everythons was gopd. We lked our room. Our shower was a little broken, got little bit burned but everything is fine.


So it's quite close to all the tourist attractions of Antwerp. If you want to explore the city, the hostel's in a good location. If you're looking to meet people and have a beer or two, I wouldn't recommend this place (eventhough they have a bar). You'll find people of all age groups, so not just youth. Clean place, good facilities.


The beds were plastic covered foam and not very comfortable. When taking a shower, water would flow under the door and into the hallway. We had to use a swipe 3-4 times during a shower to avoid this. Other than this it was ok.


There is a breakfast with a wide selection of cereals, toasts and spreads. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. Great place!


While this was by far one of the most modern and amazing hostels I have ever stayed in there are a couple things. While it isn't hard to find it is a good walk from the train station, and with a backpack that can be tiresome (no biggy). The rooms do NOT have wifi! Huge downer for me! You have to go downstairs. The shower in the room I was in had no incline, so all the water kept going out the door and into the room! No tub + no incline = shower 15 seconds and have wet beds and bags! PLEASE FIX!!


. Staff was helpful, hostel's bar was good for a drink before going out. . WiFi is only available in lounge & breakfast. No WiFi in rooms. . Comfortable beds and clean rooms. However there was even no liquid soap to wash hands in the bathroom. . The city map they have provided was very good, i.e. not just a map but full of information . Location is close to main sights however far away from night life.


Very new, clean and modern. Very good location! The room is very big and confortable!


You have to rent your towel with caution, do your own bed, can't sleep because of the noise and the light in the room. beside the bed that you have to do, and a table with two chairs, the room had nothing - the floor is pure cement, the ceiling has many strange stains, over and all the room was dirty, unconfortable, the matresses were awful.


WiFi didn't work in the room and the hostel was very boring and full of teenagers. I recommend it if you're 15 years old and going on a field trip or something or if you want to have a boring hostel with a very peaceful atmosphere. If you want to have an authentic and laid back experience, choose a different hostel

The hostel is in a very good location. Minimalistic rooms, but clean. Our room was very spacious. The staff were fantastic.
