Great staff. Very friendly. Great breakfast. Comfy beds and big rooms. Awesome location right in the heart of the city. No laundry service but it's no big deal. There's a cheap one nearby.

What u want when u check in at a hostel is to feel like you´re coming home again for a night after moving out. Felt very comfortable from the beginning. Perfect

Best hostel I have stayed at! Highly recommend pros: - welcoming staff, good beer suggestions (they have a bar with cheap drinks) and local food spots. I felt like I got a true Belgium/Ghent experience - kitchen - location: right in city centre - lockers in rooms - good wifi Cons: - only one set of showers (quite a few though) on the top floor which is slightly annoying if you are on ground floor like me. Toilets on each level though.

I only stayed for one night, and I really enjoyed the time there. This is a traditional building equipped with nice and clean facilities. Good location allow you to get everywhere on foot. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beside, the lobby was very warm and cozy, simply staying in there would also very nice if you plan to stay more than one night. Def visit again if I have chance to visit Gent. Highly recommend!

Amazing staff, very helpful and kind and ensure you have an excellent stay. Facilities are good, kitchen well equipped. Location could not be better, and the building is so beautiful with a great veiw of the bridge from the common room. Also cheap beers and good breakfast. Highly reommended, cannot be beaten!

I almost don't want to rate it so high, for fear that an extremely high demand will eventually spoil this jewel hostel.

Must be the prettiest little hostel in Belgium or anywhere I ever stayed in, the locations is priceless so is the view. Easy to find. Spacious, airy room with large windows panorama view of old town. Breakfast, the usual suspects but heck, it´s included. Go outside, you pay $$$. You can walk to just about anywhere, just need tram to a from train station.

Hostel Uppelink is in a perfect location to experience Ghent, but the staff really make it special. The locals guide to Ghent in front of the reception desk is awesome and filled with fun things to do in the city. Or you can chat with the staff and fellow travelers to get recommendations while you drink a great Belgian beer from their bottle selection. This hostel is perfect for every type of traveller.
