    Amazing hostel, best I've stayed at in Europe. I don't get why they haven't turned it into a fancy hotel considering the location. Staff is helpful and friendly. Common area are filled w leather couches, views of the canal and churches, high ceilings. If you're going to Belgium (not just Ghent) do not miss the Hostel Uppelink.
