    This hostel is great! Such nice staff and a welcoming atmosphere. The common area is spread out and roomy, perfect for socializing with strangers. You have all the facilities you could need and the location is close to the city center, but also in a neighborhood that’s a little more low key and just as fun as the center. I’d recommend this hostel to everyone, best place in Antwerp. Thank you Greg and Bridget for the great energy, and the temporary staff too!

    Extending my stay several nights at this fantastic hostel was one of the best decisions I've made. Initially only booked for a single night, the setup, staff and atmosphere of this hostel are incomparable to any other. As many other reviews read, you don't leave this as hostel as a guest, but a friend. I look forward to visiting Antwerp again, even if only to stay at abHostel once more.

    This hostel is a perfect place for all kinds of travelers! Great common area to meet people and play games! There are a lot of bars, restaurants, shops near the hostel (5-minutes walking). The owner of the host is the best - personally met me, showed the hostel and places around! Simple but with a great atmosphere!!!

    Had a fantastic time in antwerp thanks to this great place! Cool place to see the actual city of Antwerp from, as opposed to just the traditional touristy spots. Staff were great and the atmosphere very open and friendly. Would come again!

    One of the staff Jordan is very helpful and kind. I stayed for 2 nights and was comfortable. However one of the nights 3 girls from my room came really late around 2am and drunk and I couldn't sleep. One of them puked entire morning in a bucket in the room and woke me up again at 6am. Hostel should enforce some policy. The second night was fine and they were quiet. The breakfast is ok and you get a communal feeling in the common room. Overall its a good place but quite far from Centraal station.
