Location is absolutely perfect and convenient for everything in Gent! There's a bunch of little flies (a bit bigger than fruit flies) in the reception which isn't that much of an incomvenience but the notice up on the walls say they have a "flee" problem which obviously fleas are a much bigger concern! I would definitely recommend fixing that particular spelling error! It definitely scared me when I first saw it

Very clean and modern facility. Nice to have breakfast included on Christmas morning.


The staff was extremely nice and helpful.


Great location and super clean facilities. Really nice bathrooms too! Great hostel.


The location is great. Very close to the castle in the city center. It's clean and the staff is very helpful. Some negative points: if you have a car it's very difficult to find a parking place near the hostel, the towels are not included in the price, internet login is very annoying (we had to re-type the very long login and password every time we re-connected the wifi), the breakfast was average.


good location, good price, friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms
