Fantastic location, incredibly friendly and helpful staff, great beds--everything within their control was top notch except for maybe the cleanliness of the bathrooms
An amazing place to stay. Would recommend it to anyone staying in Gent. My view was STUNNING and the location is PERFECT. Stay here - seriously.
The best location you can have in Ghent, awesome building & atmosphere, delicious breakfast (included in the price), very friendly staff. The only thing that could be improved are the showers.
Hostel Uppelink in Gent seemed to be a great place to stay but when we got there, everything exceeded our expectations by a large margin. Magnificent building in a central location (we almost walked past it as it didn't look like a building that has a hostel), large and clean rooms, super friendly and helpful staff doing far more for us than we had any right to expect. Breakfast felt as eating in Hogwarts, only without Harry Potter - relaxed atmosphere, many young people. Highly recommended!

The location is frankly amazing, from my experience it can only be compared to YHA sydney habour, despite the landscapes are very different. It does not have kitchen but the bar is nice and there are plenty of places around for eating at every possible budget level.
Perfect location, exactly in the centre of the city (from my window I could see the river and the main square). Staff is extremely helpful. Breakfast included and they have also a bar: positive for the atmosphere, even if when I was there, almost no one was there. Their computers are extremely slow, but the wifi is ok (if you use your device).
The service and location was excellent. It would be great if you had a kitchen though. Staff is really nice and attentive.

Wow. If there was a perfect hostel in a perfect city, this is it. I was welcomed by the most friendly staff I've ever met (ended up being the owners). The view form the hostel is the best view in town, overlooking the river and from the top floor. Breakfast included which was nice. This felt more like a hotel than it did a hostel, thumbs up everyone there!
The most welcoming and helpful staff I've ever encountered! Lovely hostel, in a perfect location.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice and spacious. Great location. Recommend staying here!
Better location impossible, in the middle of the city center. Breakfast was simple, but good (some types of bread, cereal, fresh fruit, coffee & tea). The employees were friendly and helpful. The hostel has a nice common room with computers, close to the bar, where everybody hangs out, making it easier to meet other travelers. Rooms were big, but with small lockers.
This hostel is in the perfect location - you can see the main churches, etc. from your window! The rooms are very spacious, clean, comfortable beds with good wifi and lockers. The showers are on the top floor, a little annoying with a push button, but clean and lots for everyone. Breakfast in the morning was basic but, that's expected. Besides some crazy dorm-mates (including an insane snorer!), I would recommend this hostel for future stays in Gent!
This is the second time I stay and I always have excelent comments! I love this place
Very good! Great breakfast, rooms and service. The location is also very good! I really recomend the hostel and the city!
Amazing location and staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, good wifi, totally recommend it for a great time in Gent. Breakfast could improve...was too simple. Overall great hostel.
Only two cons with this place: 1) girls may not like the shared facilities with men (both toilets and showers), but Im a guy so I didn't care 2) I think the check-in security was a bit slack, they need to take a copy of the ID or at least visually see it themselves. Other than that - this was a really really good hostel. Loved my stay here!!!
Very nice location. Loved the common rooms. The staff was very nice. Toiletts very clean. Only negative point, it was quite loud in the room due to the street next to our room. You could hear the bus passing by quite often. But still I would highly recommend this hostel.
Best hostel I've ever stayed. Loved the view from my room and from the living room!
A great staff, a central location, great atmosphere.
Loved it. One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at, and I've stayed at 30+. Warm, comfy, clean and cozy. Great bar with good prices, great that the hostel sells fair trade drinks. Amazing location. Could have stayed there for weeks. 100% Recommend.
