    Very nice hostel experience. The hosts are very accommodating and make a home made breakfast per order each morning. They all have their own beer which was the best tasting beer I have in the 9 days I was visiting Belgium. They also have very good recommendations on places to visit while in Antwerp that aren't where tourists are typically going. 10 out 10, would stay again.

    Since it was just the beginning of the backpackers season, there was a limited number of ppl in the hostel. This nonetheless led to a cosy gathering at the breakfast table. And what a breakfast it was: the very friendly owners served fresh pancakes, homemade bread, soft boiled eggs,.. ..and didnt even let us do the dishes. So un-hostel like. I thus recommend this place.

    This was one of the most comfortable hostels I’ve stayed at. The staff and owners are all so nice and helpful! Greg offered so many tips on where to go and what to see. I met the best, most friendly people to hang out with. A big bonus is the breakfast; they have eggs for you to make, pancakes, house made bread, and other basic breakfast items. Fun fact: the building that the hostel is in used to be a chocolate factory and you can almost smell the chocolate! Thank you for a great stay!

    Over all the hostels I have stay at in my travels this one was definitely the best yet! Bridget provides so much information that was super helpful but not overwhelming. The staff was lovely with my questions and taking us out to the local bars. There is also a venue for Parties that happens across the street with hip music and tons of locals (the place was packed!). Having a kitchen available for use was also such a pleasure. I made quite a few friends and really enjoyed my stay! Thank you!!!

    Great place to be. I've seen hundreds of hostels around the world and this is one of the places you feel home and comfortably even after a long night out. It was clean, the beds comfortable, the night quiet and the breakfast better than other hostel breakies. Nice owner and good location, could be more in the center but hey, you know that when booking. For us it was the perfect place to stay after seeing Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes at Trix. Would go again!

    We were staying here for two days because we attended a concert at the nearby De Roma theatre. Greg was super friendly and helpful, showing us lots of great spots near the hostel and around the centre of the city! Breakfast and the atmosphere of the hostel was great and we really enjoyed our time here. Would definitely go back next time we are in Antwerpen.

    I stayed here for two nights and had a great stay. The owners make such an effort to make sure everyone is getting along and having fun which makes it an amazing atmosphere. Absolutely zero complaints, the rooms are nice and big, the facilities are great and the beers even better. It’s everything you want from a hostel! Thanks for the stay! Liam

    Seriously one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at. Without it being fancy, the atmosphere is super homie, the staff is incredible and the owners are so sweet. Greg gave me so many great recommendations for chill spots to have coffee or a beer. Even the 12 bed dorm was not your typical crowded place and the free breakfast is actually worth it. Would come again!

    Pretty social hostel, the bar is an easy place to meet other travellers and try a large selection of Belgian beers. The staff were all friendly and would have drinks with you. The free breakfast is good too. I would say that the showers were always pretty cold and if you wanted to wait in the hostel after checking out, you would need to pay for the late check out. Overall would definitely recommend though
