Best District in Brussels to Live in

Hi there, I just moved to Belgium one week ago as I started a new job in Antwerp. As Brussels is more cosmopolitan (sorry to all Flemish Belgians :-)) I would prefer to live in Brussels and commute to Antwerp.
What would be the best district to live in? I would like to live in a young, vibrant neighbourhood with good connection to the highway that leads to Antwerp. I would very much appreciate any recommendations.
Also, I saw on immoweb and vlan, the most popular internet sites to find an apartment in Belgium, that almost all advertisements are from real estate agencies. What commission do they usually ask for? And is it also somehow possible to find an apartment from a private person?
So many questions. ;-) I would very much appreciate any help in this respect.

Best,
Peter
