Oostende is called “the queen of cities at the sea”. It is the biggest city at the Belgian coast & has a lot to offer to visitors f.eks. museums, shops, restaurants. The hostel is located only 300m away from the beach. You can visit the “Mercator” – a former trainingvessel (sailing) from the Belgian navy or wander around looking at the yachts. Guided tours by the Marine Ecological centre can be booked through the hostel.
