I have stayed in a hostel before so when I came here it was NOT WHAT I expected. I thought it would be 2 in a room or at least 5- no, it was 12 in 1 room! I did NOT know it would be this way. Apart from the initial shock- the bed linen was clean, no issues there....

The place is very friendly and cost effective. Remember, this is a hostel, so expect to share your space with others. The Location Located in a friendly neighborhood with a tram station 10 meters from the entrance! (tram is like the local subway) There is a grocery store 1 block away.

Boomerang hostel is in the Jewish quarter which is a quiet neighborhood. It's very close to the tram which is super helpful. The door does not stick out visually so it's easy to pass it by accident. The living room area and kitchen are quite convivial and the staff was very pleasant! I think if it weren't for the staff,...

The hostel is very cheap, so don't expect any luxury. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm with 4 friends. The staff is friendly and kindly advised us on where to eat and where to have a good time. The rooms and the facilities are not exactly clean, but it's okay. Wear flipflops in the shower if you must. The...

I was pleasantly surprised with this hostel. Went in with relatively low expectations and came out considering it one of the best I've been to so far! After walking past it because the sign is only obvious on one side, I rang the doorbell and was let inside. Immediately after entering I was greeted by the cheerful staff with a...

I stayed at Boomerang Hostel for 2 nights and I only have great things to say about this place. First of all, the location are superb!

The hostel is located in a good part of the city and you can walk the city center in 10 min. easily. The building is an old one. This makes your stay really authentic. But the room more than 10 bunkbeds was not comfortable. It was kind of cold in the night.

Our first night in Belgium was made easy and stress free by the pleasant staff. There was a sense of casualness and chilled out vibe as you enter the common room.

"It takes hands to build a house but only hearts can build a home".

Boomerang hostel is a funky, relaxed and cosy place to stay while visiting Antwerp. With only a 5-10 minutes walk from the city centre, this hostel will definitely be the best value for money. A good-time atmosphere & friendly staff will make your stay complete. Boomerang hostel is both the place of calmness and inspiration as for entertaining nights in the city of Antwerp.
