All round excellent hostel, great location, great staff I had a great time 😀


Ecohostel is by far the best hostel I've stayed at. Although it is a little further from the city centre, it's not a big deal as it's a straight forward walk (past the best frites). Breakfast was delicious, beds were comfy and clean, very chill vibe. It was fun just to hang out there. I mean, it's on a canal boat- what's not to love? You also feel like you're doing something good for the environment staying there. Great Hostel, would definitely recommend.


Only a few minutes from the nearest tram stops, and not a very long walk to downtown, but in a quiet/low traffic area. The breakfast and wifi were good, and the showers and room were clean. Generally a great place to stay, and I would stay here again.


Gray experience to stay in a boat, it's just amazing ! Waking up having breakfast on chill room and read book. Then go to the board enjoying the lazy morning drinking coffee,perfect place to spend a day at. I love it!


Everything was amazing. I literally have no complains. Distance from the center or train station is not an issues for me because i like walking but there are transport options. It was clean, beautifully designed and renovated, it has lots of personality and you can feel it was made with a strong idea behind. On top of that, the owners are welcoming and pacient in explaining everything related to the boat. I highly recommend the place, loved it!


WE LOVED ANDROMEDA!!! It was a totally unique experience staying on a riverboat. A wonderful organic, fare trade breakfast is included. Fantastic to sit up on the deck and enjoy the morning and evening sun. It's admittedly a 45 minute walk from the train station (though you can also take a tram more than half the way). Once there, getting into the old town is easy. We'd definitely go back and recommend it to others!


it would be interesting to put a small closet or drawer with key in the room.
