Grote Markt - Review
In a way, this town square reminds one of utopia. It’s clean, spacious and comforting all at the same time. Beautiful buildings surround it and if that’s not all to check out, the people watching here is excellent. Lots and restaurants and bars give the place a very bustling feel. It’s quaint. Grab a local and ask them to tell you the story behind the spectacular statue of Brabo (a local legend) in the centre.

Grote Markt, Antwerp Reviews
Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Felt very secure as the manager(?) runs a tight ship. Breakfast is basic but plentiful (though lacking much needed fruit juice). The bells of the nearby cathedral are somewhat harsh should you be suffering a Sunday hangover... but that's your fault ;-) Brilliant value for money in the most beautiful part of Antwerp. Highly recommended and will definitely stay there again
The staffs are great, gave me good recommendation of where to go and what to do, great location, breakfast was nice too. Cleaning was daily ,I couldn't ask for more, will definitely be back. Best regards, Grace
Ok for the price. Located right in the middle of the city center which is convenient but it gets loud at night. Bathroom facilities are decent. Beds were uncomfortable and the rooms filled with up to 16 people.
The Hostel position is perfect. But the facility is old, and showers and bathrooms aren't very clean. The breakfast is good enough, and the young guys of the reception are fantastic.
The location of this hostel could not be better. That is where the positives end though, with vinyl-covered thin mattresses, old sheets that don't fit and a free breakfast that isn't worth it, the overall impression is a very stingy management. In addition to this I received more than 50 mosquito bites in one night, enhancing a terrible nights sleep. Some money spent and a 24 hour reception and this could be a 5 star place.
