The hostel is perfect with the best atmosphere, and common areas!!
The bar time is awesome perfect to meet new travellers and have excellents moments, also you can learn a lot about belgiums beers, and how to run a bar!
The works tasks are not many and you can do it easily, even when I did some mistakes in my shifts Greg and Bridgit always were really kind and helpful teaching me to do it better!
And all the time you can feel like you are part of the family!
I can say that was one of the best times of my travel!

If you’re looking for a place that you I’ll be in touch with all sorts of people and it will still feels like home, this is the proper place! Follow the tasks (they’re simple and are written in a paper on the front desk, you won’t miss them!) and everything will happen as it’s supposed to happen, go with the flow and your experience I’ll be amazing! Also G&B I’ll be always willing to help if you have a question!\nBorgerhout > downtown and koekoepabakkes!

abHostel is the way to go if you are a proative backpacker! The hosters I met were very nice and the owners, Birgitte and Greg, very nice too. If someone rates their stay in social media with a 100%, Greg will open a special big beer bottle for the staff!
I could not have imagined this first experience as a work-volunteer to turn out so good. The vibe in the hostel is charming and so are the guests.
The job is easy but you really feel responsible of the hostel. Sometimes I had to deal with tricky and delicate situations with guests, but that's part of the job!
100% rating! THANK YOU!!
