De Zandpoort hostel is located in the centre of Mechelen, city known as the capital of the Burgundian Netherlands and its fame is dated from the 16th century, the reigning period of Margaret of Austria. There are many beautiful buildings in the Main Square from this splendid period. Mechelen is also famous for different carillons in St.Rombout’s Tower.
The hostels rooms have 2, 3 and 4 beds and facilities include packed lunches, evening meals and luggage store. All rooms have en suite facilities and Wi-Fi.
The Tourist Office offers the opportunity to get know Mechelen by organizing guided tours through the city and its surroundings. Also for children there is a Toy museum, two nature parks and the zoo Planckendael, Technopolis is a science centre where you can try all kinds of tricks. Cinécity is only a 15 minute walk from the youth hostel.
What travellers think
Very pleasant hostel indeed. Nice atmosphere, good facilities and at the edge of the old city. An inconvenience is the limited opening hours - check in only after 5 pm (but with advance booking + full payment you will get a code to access earlier). Otherwise: no outside day toilet available. Why ?
