It's just the best experience in a Hostel i had on my life. The hostel is pretty simple, but the small shake of the boat is a charming apart. The Staff are so good in heart and so trustworthy, that even being 15 minutes walking to the center is not far for me to make a lower evaluation of this place. 100% for sure

The hostel is on a absolutely beautiful boat! Everything is new and decorated with so much attention for the detail, its amazing! It was a little cold on the hallway, but having in mind that this is an 'eco' hostel and you don't spend so much time there anyways it was totally fine. Rooms and showers were ok warm and the kitchen/lounge was super comfy. The organic breakfast is diverse and delicious! One of my favourite hostels ever, thank you guys!

Really, really cool hostel on a houseboat. We had a fantastic stay there. There are only few rooms, so showers and toilets are plenty (and clean and spacious)!

Its always cool to tell your friends you were staying on a BOAT! Other than that is a nice place with comfortable beds, nice places to hangout and hot water! Wifi only worked on the deck.

The place was nice but it took so much time to find the place, because it was not in the center of the town.i took a bus and then I walked for a big distance on foot. It was very tiring and exhausting because I had the bag and it was far. It was very clean and comfortable but I wouldn't suggest it because the staff was very u polite.thank you

Lovely hostel and great spirit and philosophy behind it. The facilities were exceptional and way better than any other hostel on land I've ever visited! It was also surprisingly (and pleasantly) warm in the room, considering we were in a boat. It's basically like being in a shared house rather than a hostel :)

Ecohostel Andromeda was definitely one of the highlights of my Belgian route trip. Great idea, great location, this place is not only rocking, it's also floating :) Internet connection was not working during my stay but hey, let's be honest. Who needs to online all the time. Anyway, owner are working on it.

luckily it's always staff that's unkind, never ever the guests arriving! I would say happy travels, but probably they are not so happy by the look of it... anyhow try to enjoy!

The barge feels like home. Lots of personal touches,feels warm and cosy. Can only host about 18 people. Dont be put off by distance from the centre,its only 15 minutes walk. It is serviced by a nearby tram.

Very cool and unique experience! Small hostel that provides everything that you need when visiting Ghent. A little out of town, but takes about 15-20 min to walk.

Thought I had booked all female dorm but ended up with two men in the room. No issues though. Owner lovely people we met were friendly. Boat is so sweet and k would recommend a stay there. Easy to get into the main area just a short walk and Ghent is a fabulous place to visit. Thanks x
