After travelling for quite a few months now this hostel is still in my top 3! It's made for backpackers! what can I say? Pancake or egg breakfast (added addiction to speculoos), communal dinners, cheap beer, hammocks, movie corner, board games and the friendliest, happiest most helpful staff in the world. made friends for life at this place. I will... More

At my arrival on Abhostel, I found an unpleasant owner (a man), very disrespectful. He didn't want to hear about my situation, he almost put me out like a dog. Finally he cashed two nights while I stayed one, I don't care about money, but the way he treated me was very insulting. I never had that experience before. It... More

The location is not perfect but good enough - a 30 minutes walk to the old town, but there is a tram almost right outside that takes you to the centre in almost no time. It is also located in what seemed to be an Arabic part of Antwerp, so most of restaurants and stores nearby are halal. Bathrooms are... More

Good location (3 mins from tram stop--both 10 & 24 stop right at Centraal Station), lovely hosts, free breakfast (with eggs!!!! & cookie butter!!!!), happy hour, and an amazing staff. Ended up extending my 4 night stay to 6 nights even though I was done seeing Antwerp in 3 days. If the staff is reading this...HIIII I miss you all... More

In particular I loved enjoying a nice Belgian beer in the garden during happy hour. Super place to meet other travellers! Great value for money , would highly recommend..... Thanks... More

the hostel was very well organized with a common breakfast and a kitchen made available, the showers were hot and bathrooms clean enough. But our room, the No. 3 was in front of the common area where the person spent talking from morning to night, the music on the radio was switched on from 9 am to 8 pm, washing... More

The 10 beds room was large and clean, but honestly you'll probably spend most of your time in the great common room or in the patio. Great facilities, very friendly staff (mostly backpackers that loved the place and stayed for some time) and good atmosphere. What else can you ask from a hostel?

Lively, quirky hostel with a great atmosphere and very welcoming hosts. The room I was in was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The facilities are good with a fully equipped kitchen (free herbs & spices, tea & coffee etc...) and the common area is a cosy place, where everyone seems to hang out, chat and play games instead of staying...

Thank you for a lovely stay at Abhostel! This hostel truly made my stay in Antwerp. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful and ran an excellent hostel that was well patronised for good reason. The rooms and beds were comfortable and the place- an old converted chocolate factory- was decorated with a retro, alternative flair. Great kitchen, lounge and... More

Out of all the hostels I've tried in my life, this is the best for so many reasons. The owners are friendly, they give you a nice greeting full of info you need about your area and the city with a free map. The place is so clean and neat. It has this friendly environment that makes you feel like... More
