I tried many hostel and this is for sure a good one for European standards. Is very clean. Reception opened 24 hours. Close to the city center.

Boomerang hostel is in the Jewish quarter which is a quiet neighborhood. It's very close to the tram which is super helpful. The door does not stick out visually so it's easy to pass it by accident. The living room area and kitchen are quite convivial and the staff was very pleasant! I think if it weren't for the staff,... More

The hostel is very cheap, so don't expect any luxury. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm with 4 friends. The staff is friendly and kindly advised us on where to eat and where to have a good time. The rooms and the facilities are not exactly clean, but it's okay. Wear flipflops in the shower if you must. The... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this hostel. Went in with relatively low expectations and came out considering it one of the best I've been to so far! After walking past it because the sign is only obvious on one side, I rang the doorbell and was let inside. Immediately after entering I was greeted by the cheerful staff with a... More

I stayed at Boomerang Hostel for 2 nights and I only have great things to say about this place. First of all, the location are superb! A quiet neighborhood, not so far from the city center and the central station (10/15min by foot).

The hostel is located in a good part of the city and you can walk the city center in 10 min. easily. The building is an old one. This makes your stay really authentic. But the room more than 10 bunkbeds was not comfortable. It was kind of cold in the night.

We were greeted at the hostel by friendly faces who let us know a lot about Antwerp which was very helpful. The hostel rooms were not huge but not too small either.

I stayed in Boomerang for one night. Luckily it's just one night! Honestly I don't really like the decoration and atmosphere in this hostel. It's dark and a bit creepy for me. The clearness was ok but no hangers in the shower room to put your clothes, no enough plugs to charge your phone. It's exactly what you pay for!... More
