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.

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!
