    I highly recommend staying at Antwerp Backpackers Hostel. The owners: Bridget & Greg can give you a synthesized past & present breakdown of Antwerp’s music scene, bar & restaurant scene, culture & demographics- which I found to be incredibly interesting and helpful. The hostel itself has an affordable bar & a very welcoming atmosphere. The essence of the hostel radiates with infectious warmth and sincerity, from travelers & employees, and is extended to you whether your stay is 1 day or 1 week

    Not your average hostel - this hostel is ALL about the backpacker / friendly / open vibe. This also means everyone is responsible for themselves and a little bit DIY. I had a great experience meeting many people here. The staff were beyond lovely and the guests wound up becoming friends with the staff. It was very diverse with folks backpacking through. Not for everyone, but perfect for those traveling types who love to share experiences and time with people from around the world. Thank you :))

    abhostel is a true Hostel. You can see the owners are travellers. They really thought of everything to make us true backpackers really happy. A great local hood really close to the touristy part. The best free hostel breakfast : homemade bread, eggs, pancakes,... Free Coffee, tea, water, WiFi, lockers,... Boardgames, fans, Happy Hour, hammocks. Thank you B & G for this true, homemade experience !

    abhostel is really THE BEST ! You get a big breakfast, a made up bed, very clean rooms and bathrooms, inside info about the great neighborhood (I loved to go to the bars, meet the locals, eat the local food, not the touristy rip off). A garden with a BBQ and hammocks. Free Coffee, tea and water all day. A fully Equipped kitchen with herbs and a big Smeg stove ! Every evening a real Happy hour with Greg's own Craft Beer. I made new friends and went out to the many pubs around. I will be back !

    Fantastic hostel! Had a great time here, very clean and comfortable, lockers for valuables, and a breakfast included. The people working there really make it, we had many lovely conversations over the owner's homemade beer from the bar. Definitely recommend!

    Had a really nice stay at Antwerp Backpackers Hostel! Everyone was so friendly and it was such a nice atmosphere. One of my favorite Hostels I have ever stayed at! Thanks so much! ☺️ Only thing I would recommend to be fixed is that there was no lock on the Diamond room. It’s a pretty small hostel and everything felt pretty safe, but it would have been nice to be able to lock the door for safety reasons.

    OK hostel for a weekend stay. Neighborhood is very ethnic and has a lot of different bars, restaurants and mini markets which is cool and convenient. 30 minute walk to main station which is manageable. We did find the owner a bit intimidating. He was kind of rude to an employee infront of us and other guests (more than once) and that made the atmosphere in the common room a bit strange...
