Wonderful place to be. A cozy hostel with a great atmosphere and full of great guests! The shifts are perfectly organized and the work is really fair. The owners of abhostel are great people, and we all really worked here as a team (or beign more precise, as a family!). One of my best experiences in life.

My experience at Abhostel was amazing. In all I spent 6 awesome weeks in Antwerp at AB and it was killer! Greg and Bridget are real travellers at heart and they have cultivated the perfect hostel for travellers. I guess one thing to note, is that if want a good experience there you have to earn it. Listen on the first days, keep on eye on small details, explore the city and bring positive vibes when you’re with guests. If you do that you will love your time !

My experience at Abhostel was amazing. Greg and Bridget are the best. They are caring and lovely and always made sure I felt like home. The hostel is pretty great, with the best breakfast and the shifts are very simple and easy. As soon as you get there you feel the love they have for this place, and that's what makes the job even better. So If you're thinking about going there, make sure to do your best because that's what Greg and Bridget deserve! I'm very happy with my time there and I'll never forget the best belgian dinner made by Bridget haha
Thank you for everything, Greg and Bridget!

I had a great experience at this hostel because of the friends I made there. The hostel vibe is like a home which I really liked. It is a great vibe to meet many travelers. For my stay it was mostly relaxed, which made it easier for me. Great beer! Hope to come back and visit.
