I stayed here one night. When I asked the staff for advice on what to see in Ghent, she gave me a map and told me to go ask the Tourism office for suggestions. The room was a good size and the bunk beds were sturdy. Bathroom was a great size. The keycard to run electricity was really odd. The hostel was fine in a good location. I did not enjoy being in a room with two ladies over 50 years old, especially as one of them thought that yelling at roommates in the middle of the night is acceptable.

Very basic bed and the lights didn't work on the individual beds. The morning staff was super nice and friendly and the night girl was cold and too curt. We felt like we were asking general questions (like one of our blankets was missing) and she made us feel dumb and bored with talking to us but she was sitting there reading a book. The common area is super nice and cozy. The internet isn't great in the rooms.

Everyhting in Gent is at walking distance, so as this hostel. The breakfast is plentiful. Rooms have lockers that work with 50c coins, so there is no need to use your own padlock. To improve: heating in rooms (it was enough for me with the provided woollen blanket, but maybe not for others). Also using your own card to enable electricity in the room doesn´t seem too convenient in a shared room.

Good location, a block away from the historical centre and all the tourist activities. Great breakfast that's included. Good place to be if you're tired of party hostels or want something more quiet.
