Beach hostel in the centre of Ostend

Hosts Carl & Filip were raised in the hostel business and built this brand-new custom-designed hostel for the modern backpacker. You will stay in one of the comfortable rooms for 2 to 6 persons with en-suite bathrooms, in the centre of the city. Have a chat with other travellers or families on the beach, in the lounge or at the bar. Groups can hold activities in one of the multi-functional rooms, one of which is a beach laboratory. This hostel offers a unique combination of city and sea for families, solo travellers, groups and school trips. The hostel has embraced ecological, budget-friendly and social tourism and even has solar boilers on the green roof.

Ostend - Vintage splendour in the Queen of seaside towns

Ostend is a historic town with a cosmopolitan, modern and bustling side. Generations of eccentric artists have found inspiration in the city of James Ensor, and that is immediately apparent in the city’s cultural offering which includes the authentically renovated Casino-Kursaal theatre complex, Mu.ZEE and the Ensor House. But you can always just head to the beach for a sunbathing session or shop till you drop in the shopping streets that are open every day, including Sundays.
