The Experience

Someone that is looking for a fun sociable time, hanging out with guests and staff alike and is a party starter!! Someone that is clean, easy to get along with and doesn’t get frustrated easily. You must be able to adapt to different social situation and just improve our guests social experience altogether. So, at the end of the day, we are looking for new friends that are looking to get more out of their backpacking experience!

first time doing worldpackers and i think that it couldnt be more perfect, the ASH best hostel in antwerp.
Fabian, John, Arlene, Rebeca are just one of a kind :)
u just arrive and u will feel like home right away, a lot of free time for u to travel, going out or just chill at the hostel. a beautifull vibe from the guest, the ash team and the volunteers. also very near to parks, bus stop, 6 min walk from the central station etc
i recommend a 100% this hostel !!

The Ash is the perfect place for people who wants to meet people. With a gorgeous structure and nice places to be, the experience is just fantastic. Working was pretty fine and well prepared to receive the volunteers. Couldn't say the hostel is also placed in one of the best places of Antwerp. Nearby you can find everything you need and all kind of public transport, what makes traveling easier.

There are no words to explain my experience in The ASH, spending time with the staff and other volunteers was amazing. They gave us a lot of time to explore the city and other countries. Helping in the hostel was very easy as the atmosphere is very positive. I would definetely be back to Antwerp to be part of this experience again! Miss you guys already!
