10/10 Exceptional

Nice Hostel
I stayed in a 3 bed room as I was traveling through Antwerp as part of longer trip. The hostel was nice and my budget. My only compliant has nothing to do with the hostel itself (a guy wouldnt turn the light off way into the night). I would stay here again.

Good location, few minutes walk of the central station, this however also has the downside that it can be noisy outside in the night. Furthermore, it can be hot in the room in the summer.
