The hostel is brand new (or at least it looks so) and it's right in the city center. I was with my gf and we got a private twin room with ensuite bathroom. Only thing they could improve is the fact that in the bathroom there isn't even the soap. I understand that it's a youth hostel and for instance beds were undone and towels are to be rent but at least the soap in the bathroom is something I'd expect. A part from this very small inconvenience I'd recommend the hostel ;)

It was a good place for a quick stay. Clean rooms, good free breakfast. They have a lot of facilities (restaurant, bar, cafeteria, storage) but the place in general felt very... industrial. Emotionless? Not a super friendly environment. The evening receptionist was rude. They have a very good map of the city at reception though, make sure to grab one! Overall, it was a decent place for a brief visit to the lovely city of Antwerp.

I was travelling solo and this was a nice hostel so spend the last night of my trip in. It was clean and had a nice setting. There was a bar area where you could relax and have a drink and plan your next day.

It's a big concrete place and just always seems empty inside. No atmosphere, and the wifi only works in the lobby. Not too far from the nice parts of Antwerp, but nothing special. Nice place to sleep if that's what you're looking for, but definitely not a place to meet people.

The location is perfect in the middle of the centre and the breakfast is also really good for a hostel. The rooms are basic but nothing special and really basic beds. Not all the staff members can give a good advise about Antwerpen and not all the information is up to date. But overall they were really friendly. It is really noisy and if you open your window it will effect your sleep. I would recommand this hostel but mostly because of the location.

Stayed 2 nights. Love the environment and the design of the hostel but the facilities are pretty basic. Would be great if they have a rack to put our shampoos, etc in the shower. There were a lot of mosquitoes too.

Brand new hostel, very nice, great location, large rooms. Very good breakfast included in the price. The only drawback of this hostel is the fact that there is no kitchen for self-catering.

Superb hostel ever!

The hostel is large and looks new. Beds are quite comfortable and rooms don't feel too squashed. The hallways feel like walking through a prison, a lot of concert and feels a bit errie. The staff were very helpful but there is only wifi in the lobby area where there is not much comfortable places to site. Connection to the wifi did not allow auto login which made it annoying to keep entering in passwords which change every 24 hours

Because everything is concrete, noise carries like crazy! So it is impossible to be quite when coming into your room. And it was a little hard to meet anyone. But otherwise it was a super nice hostel. Great location! Staff was awesome.

Breakfast was GREAT and you could even have it in a little terrace. The room was good too, new and clean. On the minus side: They offer luggage storage (check in is at 3pm), but even when they have free space, they let different groups store their luggage together, so you MUST trust others and should probably not leave anything valuable. Also, walls and door seem to be made of paper, so you hear everything. Bring earplugs with you! Knowing this, I recommend it and I would go back!

Good location, close to metro/tram stops. We stayed in a 4-bed private room so we didn't have to worry about lockers, plus we all got our own keycards. This hostel lacks any particular atmosphere (which seems to be quite common at HI-Hostels), but has good facilities. Also they offer great free breakfast that is totally worth getting up for! The WiFi only works around the reception area and common areas, which is a little inconvenient at times but that's their way of bringing people together.
