Staff were so helpful and kind, always offering more advice than was asked, it was clear that they loved the city and knew it well. Our 6 bed dorm room was very spacious with amazing views. The fair trade breakfast was great too!

This was a brilliant hostel, my favourite while travelling through Belgium. The staff were really friendly and suggested the top places to go when arrived. The hostel had a great location with an amazing view from my dorm. The common room was a great place to relax - I loved the music they played and they had board games to play too (although I didn't get around to them, maybe the next time I stay!)

Hostel Uppelink is the best hostel I ever stayed at. The location in the center of Ghent is great, as are the facilities , breakfast and the cosy bar in the hostel. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and especially welcoming. A must !

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. It's run by its owners, who are a lovely couple, always there to treat you nice and help you with anything you need. The location is absolutely perfect, within walking distance from everywhere in the city. If you go to Gent, you HAVE to stay here. I wish we would have stayed longer, we really felt at home!

Been to many hostels all over the world and never been to a more beautiful hostel with a more welcoming staff. Do yourself a favor

Very easily one of the best hostels at which I've stayed. Comfortable, clean, centrally located — Hostel Uppelink is the perfect starting point for a long day in the city. All of the staff is wonderful; Dries, in particular, was great to chat with, and had plenty of tips for exploration or just dinner. The owners are especially warm, and care more about cultivating a welcoming atmosphere than catering to belligerent groups of tourists. When I return to Ghent, I will return to Hostel Uppelink.

I cannot speak highly enough of this hostel, the staff and Ghent itself: a not-to-be-missed destination! The staff were welcoming, efficient, kind and helpful. The hostel felt very safe, was really clean and spacious. Breakfast was great - and fair trade! Everything was perfect. Also Ghent is better than Bruges, hands down! Don't miss this special place. Thank you to the boys at reception ! :)
