Gran hostal, super recomendado, muy buena energía del personal y otros viajeros, además está en un bote y eso está muy bien, todo limpio y tienes cervezas a muy buen precio que puedes sacar de la nevera y tu mismo las anotas en tu cuenta, me gustó ese espíritu de honestidad que se respira.


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!


Wij vonden het een fijn en uniek hostel. Echt genoten. Sowieso is Gent te gek. Als ik terugkom, dan ga ik zeker weer voor een slaapplek op de boot.

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!


Zeer fijne gastvrouw, zeer fijne alternatieve locatie, heel fijne, gemoedelijke sfeer! Aanradertje...


Superbe péniche, meublée et repeinte avec goût et originalité. Lits très confortables, livres a disposition, et petit coin lecture/détente qui ressemble à un cabinet de curiosité. L'hôtesse, avec qui nous avons discuté le matin, est très sympathique, cool et disponible.


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

Deserving of 100%.. spacious comfortable secure rooms, plenty of showers and toilets, space for relaxing in the ship and on the deck.. lovely hostess too!


가격대비 고효율 겡트에서 편안하게 생활함 가격도 저렴하고 근처에 마트도있어 편리하다


Accueil très sympathique. La péniche est très agréable et bien agencée. Nous avions une chambre double à l'avant du bateau, confortable et originale. Petite terrasse très agréable où l'on peut boire un verre ou prendre son petit déjeuner. Nous y avons passé 3 nuits et nous y retournerons sans hésiter si nous revenons à Gand, que nous avons beaucoup appréciée.


Really cute hostel !!


- Very Nice decorated place - good security practice - Weak Signal internet at night but during daytime and evening are fine.


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


it is located far from gent station. when i went to there at night i had to walk to go there. it was bit scared of me. and difficult to finding at night. and i couldn't connect wifi at room. it was only working at common room. but the host was very very kind and everything is clean! and breakfast was very good as well. you can eat bread or cireal or fruit as breakfast. there were lots of jam so. i was very comfort while i was staying there! thanks !
