Great location, nice and friendly staff, nice common areas - great place!

This is one of the best hostel I've ever been. The place is such close to the beach and the street was fool of places to go out in the morning/afternoon. There was a laundry close to it and 2 super markets. Due to a conference the bus stop was moved out but besides that all was good, there is a kitchen, internet and other facilities., Nice stuff

No locks on the room doors - anyone could enter through the front door, walk through all the rooms and go through everyone's stuff. Very strange that bed sheets are not included. I was glad I only stayed for one night. Good location though, close to central station.

Cheap place to stay, so don't expect too much. Beds are so-so, staff is alright, city centre about a 20-minute walk and breakfast is good. The thing I disliked was the fact that the staff smoke in the hallways, so you can smell that in your room.

classique dortoir pour un séjour court ou en groupe. Prêt de serviettes. no cosy but ok for short stays or with a group. not so many toilets-bathroom (could be a problem when lot of people)

Ok, the price was only 12€ and in Belgium was quite fine as price. But the hostel was really really dirty (i've seen quite a lot of them...), both in the rooms and in the bathrooms...if it is only for 1 or 2 nights you can survive...;)

It is a party hostel. People were drinking and yelling all the night long when I stayed there. People are also allowed to smoke in the entrance downstair. which makes the whole hostel smell smoke. There was only one plug for 14 beds in my room. There is no locker in the rooms, you can put your bag into a locked room though. The breakfast was good but you have to pay an extra 2.50 euros. I think it's ok to crash if you're in Antwerp only for partying, otherwise I wouldn't recommend it.

I don't complain anything except hot shower sometimes doesn't work. 日本人スタッフがいるので日本人にはおすすめです!

You get what you pay for! Had itchy bites the next morn - bed bugs? No keycard or key to room so terrible security as anyone can enter all rooms. The linen was kept stacked on a couch covered by a sheet in the main living room. People smoking in the foyer wasn't pleasant and made the smell of stale smoke linger in the air. Kitchen cramped and cluttered. Main light in dorm not working; had to use dim lampshade. Dim light in the showers. Was like crashing at a friend's cheap student flat!

Nothing spectacular, but exactly what you need for a weekend in Antwerp.

Cool place, people friendly, annoying that sheets and breakfast cost extra


77%

While the front of the hostel looks sketch, the inside is great. They have a great and stocked kitchen area, the washrooms and showers are great and the beds are clean and comfortable. The neighbourhood it's in is super safe and the people are nice, and there are PLENTY of cheap food options and supermarkets around.

old building, no internet in the room


63%

Really cool building. Otherwise the best I can say is its a cheap bed.


34%

The location is not bad and the building itself is quite ok. The staff consisted of a man in dirty cloths lying on a sofa watching tv and smoking, and a woman drinking beer. They took almost no notice of their guests. In the room there was only one wardrobe (falling apart) and only one small lamp (no ceiling light). It was extremely cold in there, and I had to ask them twice. Finally they said they'd fixed it, but the radiator was lukewarm during the night, so it was still cold.

Awesome place, the staff were the nicest i have met in a hostel so far, very helpful! the common area is very relaxed but still fun (even has a massive shelf full of board games) how awesome!!! kitchen was very good with everything you need. wifi worked good, hostel located close enough to everywhere important. top spot, definantly stay there again.

They don't have lockers, like every normal hostel should have. Apart from that it's a really cheap hostel. It's the best option in Antwerp to crash after a party night.

We were very satified with the hostel. The only thing we did not like were the cold showers!

Location is pretty good and easy to find. Security could be better, the dormrooms don't have a lock or lockers, however we still felt safe. The beds in the 16 dormroom were not very comfy. Showers were fine, but not very many when the hostel is completely booked. The common room was a nice place to hang out and play some games. Staff was really nice. Overall good value for money, we'd go again for just a night
