Welcome to our hostel

This is the newest hostel in the city which has become known as a bit of a design icon. With modern features and contemporary art the hostel is right in the centre of the action with the entire city of Antwerp being quite literally on the doorstep.

Designed with groups in mind, this hostel has all the facilities needed to make a school or university trip successful. All of the rooms – whether a single room or a six-bedded room - have private facilities (no running up the corridor in the middle of the night) and there is also 24 hour access with secure key cards. There are a number of classrooms available for groups needing to gather before the day’s activities as well as the all-important free Wi-Fi and internet kiosks available for use. Breakfast is also included within the price.

Antwerp has a dizzying array of ancient buildings and a large collection of pubs with hundreds of the country’s world famous beers on offer. Visitors could also stroll along the harbour, visit the zoo, spend an evening at the opera or find fashion bargains in some of the designer shops and boutiques. And of course there are the mesmerising shops selling diamonds.

So if Antwerp sounds like the place for your next group trip, why not get in touch with the Central Youth hostel to see when you could be visiting?
