Hostel Antwerp

Welcome to our hostel

Antwerp Central Youth Hostel is situated in the heart of the city centre. It is an ideal base for exploring the historical city with its many ancient buildings, large collection of pubs and, as you might expect from the ‘fashion capital’ of Belgium, designer shops and boutiques.

At the hostel all rooms come with en-suite facilities, there’s a free buffet-style breakfast, free Wi-Fi, Internet kiosks and the hostel bar is the perfect starting point for exploring the town's night life.

With more than 30,000 students in town, there's always something to do. You can visit the photography, modern and fine art and fashion museums, take a stroll along the harbour, visit the zoo, the opera or one of the several theatres.

Very disappointed that towels were not included or that there was no opportunity to rent some. The hostel 'kindly' lets you buy a towel for 6 euros which, as we were travelling light, we then left there!!!

A bit more supervision at night would prevent waking up from noisy neighbours returning in the middle of the night.

We were disturbed several times by people returning in the middle of the night. Not only dide they not keep their voices down, one group even played soccer in the corridor....
