Cannot say enough about this hostel! Very friendly and helpful staff. Location is right in the center. Rooms and bathroom very clean. Fair trade breakfast is a huge plus :)

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.

My friend and I stayed at the Uppelink Hostel just for one night, but it was great! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The building is very nice and also the rooms are big and clean. Perfect location right in the city centre with a beautiful view!

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 ! :)

Not a grungy hostel like you might get used to - the place is so clean and well kept, but that doesn't make it any less fun. The staff are so helpful when it comes to the beer menu (and anything you could want to ask!) and the kitchen is huge and really well equipped. If you're lucky enough to get one of the river-facing rooms your view will be exceptional too. The rooms are super roomy and clean as well.

Smack dab in the middle of city center. It's a medieval building and inside is cozy and charming with hardwood furniture, and leather chairs. Small enough to make conversation and meet people easily. The dorm rooms are great as well. Warm comforters and crisp, clean sheets and duvets. Mattress is pretty thick for a hostel too. Breakfast is average. No wifi in the dorm rooms. My only complaint was the shower room was a bit smelly.
