Great hostel just round the corner from the centrum. Delicious breakfast. Very reasonable price.

Everything was really good. Friendly and useful staff. There was a bunch of Hungarian girls having a party in the restaurant area late one night and you couldn't hear anything in any of the room areas - so this place is good if you want to party, but if you want peace you can have it. Only minor complaint is the shower in the shared rooms would leak water onto the floor at the entrance to the shared room, due to a bad design with no lip to stop the water. Just required a bit of manual cleanup.

Very clean. Good eat as much as you can free breakfast. Quite a big hostel with a lack of atmosphere though, I didn't feel it like the right place to meet fellow travellers. A bit expensive. Would recommend it if you go to Antwerp.

Excellent location! Close to great food and historical buildings. The breakfast was also amazing! Lots of options and a very large eating area. However, the hostel was a bit expensive for what was provided in the rooms. Also, one of the staff members was quite rude to my boyfriend and I when we arrived and spoke in French. Upon seeing our US passports he said quite snappy that we should just stick to English in Belgium, they don't speak French in the north. Not a great intro into the hostel.

Right in the heart of Antwerp, the hostel is GREAT location wise. The rooms are clean, large, and the free breakfasts are standard but just what you need! The only downside is the lack of WIFI in rooms, but I guess lingering around the foyer area of the hostel is one way to meet other travellers whilst using the internet facilities!

Perfect location in the heart of the city. If you like minimalistic architecture, go for it! However Some people might find it to modern and minimalistic. Great breakfast!

We stayed here for one night and it was great. Staff is friendly and helpful, the room was simple and the shower a little annoying. The breakfast was really good! On the day we left we could leave our bags in a safe. Also, it is located right in the city center which was our main reason for choosing this hostel.

Very great location and nice staff, also decent breakfast and clean room. The building and our room was a bit plain and we thought that the blanket might have been thicker for the season, but in general I would fully recommend this hostel.

A really excellent hostel. Well worth a stay.

Excellent position, only 5 minutes to the city center, and well connected with the central station. Welcoming staff. Noisy contest but it's normal if you choose a youth hostel; the building structure didn't help in this way (voices rumble in the hallway). Uncomfortable shower tap in the room.

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel because I had friends with me. I would never go to this hostel alone because of the fact it isn't a real hostel. It doesn't have a cozy and comfort common room and there is no kitchen or fridge you can use. There were a lot of families and couples which makes it even more difficult to connect. It's a clean hostel though and near to the centre of Antwerp. Great when you're planning to go with friends or family.

I paid 0,5EU for hair dryer. I hope consumers could use hair dryer for free. Moreover, we can use wifi only at lobby, not at room.

The free breakfast is good. Wifi in common area only but not in the room. The checkout time is 10 am which is a bit early.

Hostel is safe and the staff is very kind. A very good place to sleep and visit Antwerpen. The shower is a bit strange because the water is getting in the hallway after taking a shower. A very good place to meet people and having fun!

Check out time was very early. Room was boring, no mirrors or anything and WiFi was not available in the room. But location was perfect.
