The guy owner was lovely!!! Lots of cool things coming for this hostel. Good breakfast and linen! Need towels and a drying rack in rooms. Need to create atmosphere with a good bar tender. Lots of very young kids so perhaps more of a family hostel at this stage. Bike tour was ok but the guide isn't very knowledgeable and is very weird I didn't learn much. Amazing location, just didn't meet anyone fun!
Staff were very helpful and friendly. Location is perfect, wonderful view from the dorm I stayed in. facilities were of a good standard and very clean, bed was comfortable. Breakfast was simple but good value. The bar has a relaxed atmosphere with a good selection of beers. Guest get 50 cents off. I only stayed for the night and the hostel was quiet so the atmosphere was subdued but very pleasent. A very nice hostel. Would recomend and stay again

I loved this hostel. The staff were extremely friendly, the rooms were extremely clean, and the common room and bar had a great atmosphere. You can't go wrong staying here, you'll have a great time and meet some great people!
Rooms weren't soacious but fine. A fantastic hostel!!
Proper Hostel, no problems. Definitely recommended. The room was clean as well as shower&toilet area. Staff was very helpful, always responsive, sparing time. Also excellent location!
You can't find a better location in Ghent! The lounge is probably my favourite part - has a wonderful ambience. The staff is super friendly and always helpful. There might not be much to do in Ghent, but this is also a great place to just sit back and relax!
Great hostel - beautiful location. The only small fault was that it was a bit noisy because of the people outdoors but that finishes around 12-1. The owners are lovely and breakfast good. Would definitely stay again!
Amazing location and really friendly staff. It was a good place to meet people if you were travelling on your own and it was within walking distance to everything. The only downside was you had to keep pushing a button to keep the shower going. Also it would be great to make the getting to the hostel directions a bit more detailed eg. Turn left when you get off the tram and walk across the bridge
I would go to Ghent again, just to stay here. It's gorgeous, clean, friendly, and the building is historic as well. I swear this place is nicer than my house. Beautiful kitchen and bar downstairs with lovely seating, great breakfast, cheap drinks, and games for the guests. Just outside of our window was the canal that runs through and a beautiful view of the historic center. Lockers in the room, lights in each bed, lots of window and fans, so pleasant. I didn't even want to leave the building
One of the reasons I chose to stay in Ghent was because I read great things about this hostel. And this place surpassed my expectations! I found it very easy to meet other travelers. Loved the common area, bar, breakfast, free walking tour and kayak rental. Wonderful staff. Great atmosphere. The best location.
Simply perfect. The location is even better than the expensive hotels. Friendly staff, good atmosphere, clean and spacious, what more could I ask for? Towel is cheap and u can borrow a padlock for free. We even rented a kayak at the reception and paddled along the beautiful canal! Been travelling in many countries and this hostel is so far the best. Ghent is a perfect base for traveling around Belgium. Don't go to Brussels, it's too touristy.
Honestly the only bad thing about this hostel is the beds are harder than most...everything else is amazing! Amazing location, staff and atmosphere. Not a party place but a night out in Medieval Ghent is not to be missed.
Couldn't have been any better. Fantastic hostel with the friendliest of staff
A hidden gem in Belgium. The location was amazing. The staff was very helpful and friendly and they were all beautiful too;)
The best view I've ever had and probably will ever have in a hostel! Book room 1 or ask for a room with a river view. Had an awesome time with the girls in my room (common area wasn't that fun or exciting). They have Kayak hire, a power point and light for every bed. Average sized lockers for important stuff or a soft carry on. Room was very large for an 8 bedded could've been 12 or more easily. Showers were really good and there were about 8 which was more than enough (even on a weekend).
Fantastic location, very friendly staff and an overall very welcoming environment. I will definitely return the next time I am in Ghent
