Wadi Hostel

Wadi Hostel

Wadi Hostel, an architectural gem immersed in nature

Wadi Hostel is hidden in the forest of the de Hoge Rielen in Kasterlee. The circular building embraces the forest, as it were, making it a unique hostel in Belgium.

Wherever you look outside from the hostel, you are always in direct visual contact with nature.

The progressive design by the Italian architectural firm 'Studio Secchi-Viganò' is fully integrated into the green space of the de Hoge Rielen domain.

Children in the courtyard of the Wadi Hostel

Everybody is welcome at Wadi Hostel, also families. Wadi Hostel excels both in architecture and atmosphere. Wadi Hostel more than meets these criteria.
