Property Information:

Our hostel is conveniently located in the middle of the university nucleus of the city, opposite the renowned art centre Vooruit and just 3 minutes away from the historic city centre. The hostel offers 108 beds and 15 rooms and as such is one of the largest hostels in the Ghent region. Both groups and individual travellers are very welcome here.

Every traveller is a friend…This baseline was created to cover much more than just the mere contents of our challenge. A personal service to each individual traveller is our goal, wishing to avoid a business‐like and cool reception. The hostel opened its doors on June 20, 2014.

Respecting the past of the building, an original total concept was developed for the interior, the design and even the atmosphere. Apart from the added value of the historic architecture of our premises, we also want to present ourselves as a trendy, international hostel in a vibrant city of culture. 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.

During their stay, guests can relax in our travellers corner. For their convenience, also a podium was built and a piano and even guitars are at hand.
The lobby, bar, breakfast room and the terrace integrate seamlessly in each other. We offer meeting rooms and different formulas for groups, as well as parking area for cars, bicycles and motorbikes.

Did you know that:

- we are rated as a 5 star hostel
- won the award for the most innovative tourist concept of Flanders Tourism
- our hostel is featured in the most famous design and interior magazines

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 €3 per person, per night. You can pay this amount at our reception desk.

See you in Ghent!
