    One of my favorite hostels I've ever stayed at. Location was great. Staff was incredible. Free Breakfast was one of the better I've had. Wonderful free maps. The €,5 discount on beer for hostel guests was great. Atmosphere was wonderful and the common area was nice. Loved that the wifi worked throughout the entire hostel including rooms. Any issue we had the staff handled immediately without any question. Will definitely be coming back.

Things to Note

The Ghent tourist tax of €3,00 pp/night is not included in the price yet | Check in: 3.00 - 10.00 pm | Check out: 7.30 - 11.00 am | Free breakfast buffet: 7.30 - 10.00 am | No curfew or lockout | Payment upon arrival: cash, credit cards, debit cards | Bar open until midnight (guests get a €0,50 discount on all drinks at the bar) | From 17 until 26 July 2015 the Ghent Festival takes place in the center of our city. One of the main music stages is located not too far from Hostel Uppelink. Since the music will go on until 2.30 am, some people might find it impossible to sleep before that time.
