Property Information:

Backstay Hostel Ghent is situated in the former editorial office of a local newspaper.

Dorms go from 2 persons up to 15 and prices vary between €18.5 and €34 per person, per night. Rates vary depending on room type, season and weekday or weekend.

Please bear in mind that the city of Ghent charges everyone who is staying in a hostel/hotel a tourist tax of €2.50 per person, per night. You can pay this amount at our reception desk.

We have a cosy travel corner and a bar open for everyone. You won't hear the typesetters of yesteryear anymore, although this is becoming the beating heart where travellers, Ghent residents and students will meet each other. Daydream with a good book, have traditionally ground coffee with your newspaper, or just stay overnight in our hostel.

We are a young and energetic team and will make your stay in Ghent a memorable and wonderful experience. Use Backstay Hostel as your base to experience the city's vibrant nightlife, the beautiful historic buildings and a whole host of top-class museums. With our capacity of 108 beds , we are one of the largest hostels in the Ghent area.

    Great atmosphere. Convenient wireless lock system. Free breakfast.10 min. walk from city center w/ bars and such nearby as well. My only issue was having a taxi called. It's not a hotel, but staff can direct a taxi to the hostel better than guests, and guests may not have working phones, so they should be willing to help (they're still in hospitality after all). They eventually did, but only after wasting time passing me off to different staff and acting like they would help without helping.
