Sleeping on a barge is definitely an experience you should carry out here! The hostel is lovely and clean, ecological, the owner really nice, and the small and cozy common space easily invites to exchanges with other travellers. It's close to the city centre but quite distant from the station by foot though... Greatly recommanded!

Very intersting place to stay as the rooms are into a boat parked in the river. There is a slight smell of oil due to the engine at the back (the engine is visible through a big glass, that remebers that you are inside a true boat, and that's nice!

When they say you are going to be on a barge in the canal, they mean it. We had a fantastic time here. The "Ghent Vibe" is all over this place. Very chill staff. Friendly people everywhere and everything is just kind of like "hey, you're alright." The location is farther away from the tourist part of old Ghent so it's a bit quieter, but also you will want to take a tram there. It's not difficult, but it is something to think about if you've got heavy packs on.

The location for the hostel is very good, in a quiet area but just 10 min to city center. The toilets and showers are very spacious and clean. Beds comfortable and rooms also spacious and clean. The staff is very nicwe and friendly and the communication with them very easy and fluent. The breakfast was abundant and yummy!!! Easy parking place close to the boat! Totally recommendable and value for money!! If I´m back in Gent, I'll try to host there again! Amazing experience!!!!!!

You have everything you need, the location is not far from the center, they take the ecological issue very serious and you stay on freaking floating boat just in a belgium channel! How cool can be that!

Little bit out of the way of the centre but a great place. Very welcoming and sociable. Nice company not like your usual hostel party goers. Had some nice international political chats over breakfast on the terrace looking over the canal. Great place for vegans 💜

Beautiful and unique boat hostel! If you don't mind a little bit of a walk from the center, this is a great place to stay. Staff is also very helpful.
