Ignore the review by anthroopos who visited Ostend in August 2013!! I have been going to Ostend on holiday every year since 1993. It really is not "very, very noisy with sirens going off constantly". Also, in the 20 years I have been going there I have literally not once seen anybody being robbed or even any drunken lager louts. Me and the friends that I go with usually leave the bars between 2am and 3am. The apartment is so close to the town centre so we just walk and we've never seen any trouble.
There are so many bars to choose from in Ostend with something to suit everybody. There aren't too many clubs but that's not a problem to me as I prefer bars.
There are plenty of shops too. Some expensive especially along Adolf Buylstraat, others not so expensive like the C&A. However, don't be expecting big city shopping like London or Paris.
The town centre is compact but certainly not what some describe as a concrete jungle. Everything in the town centre is within walking distance.
