    Easily one of my all time favorite hostels. It feels more like a home than a hostel. The staff are super friendly and the owner is often downstairs hanging out as well! I really couldn’t recommend this place enough. I would recommend getting a city card for public transit and you can be anywhere in Antwerp within fifteen minutes.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were super friendly, there was a nice atmosphere for meeting people although it was pretty quiet during my stay, and the hostel is in a great location- an easy walk into the city centre. Would stay again for sure!

    Had a great stay here! Rooms and facilities are very clean and there’s great kitchen. Atmosphere is amazing for all kinds of travellers and the staff are friendly and helpful. Only downside is the location is a little far from the exciting parts of town and the dorm doors don’t have locks so anyone from the hostel could walk in. Was nice of the owner to come and apologise after a little dispute and made us feel incredibly welcome and comfortable, really respect that!

    Lovely hostel, staff are great, free breakfast is amazing! Very clean. Downsides are its a bit faraway from city/touristy area and the door to the room doesnt lock and the lockers are only big enough for small valuables.

    The location is a fair distance from main area, around 40 minutes walking or 20 by public transport. The hostel in clean but there's only one shared bathroom area which is downstairs and mixed. The showers are warm, they don't get very hot. The breakfast is a bit of a mess at peak-time around 9 as there are so many guests and not an orderly-fashion so it can feel like a scramble to get it. The staff, particularly the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful.

    Very Good

    08 Dec 2018
    Nice staff, nice room, very clean. Wi-Fi only worked in the common room/kitchen, had no connection in my room. Had to argue with the staff to be given the code to lock the door to my room, which was frustrating. It's about a 20-30min walk to the local attractions, depending on which one. It's a nice walk, but terrible if it's raining. Only one shared bathroom for everyone; it was very clean, but no hot water if you showered after about 8:00pm.
