Excellent hostel! So close to the center and an awesome atmosphere. I was only passing through Ghent for a night but would definitely stay here if I come back. Helpful staff as well!

Stayed for a weekend and loved it. The facilities are great, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the location is pretty much perfect! I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Gent and this hostel was a big part of it.

Really good hostel but abit too fancy for my taste, I like my hostels more cozy, simple and cheaper. It was a nice stay nonetheless.

This is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It has a beautiful view over a canal and some beautiful old churches, is a beautiful old building and has wonderful friendly staff. The only downside is that because it is right in the middle of things you can get a bit of road traffic.

Hostel Uppelink is the best hostel I've yet to stay in. The view is incredible as you're right in the heart of old town overlooking beautiful bridges, canals, churches, and cathedrals. Everything you want to do is within walking distance. The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. If I had ONE tip for Belgium it would be to stay at this hostel in Ghent and make it your home base for day excursions to anywhere in Belgium. You will not be disappointed.

Uppelink Hostel is one of the most attractive hostels I've ever stayed in and located in the prettiest 500m² of Gent. It's in an historical building that was previously a restaurant (amongst other things). The staff were quite friendly and especially helpful when someone in the building stole my iPhone - they were able to check the CCTV and find the perpetrator! The only criticisms I can think of: (1) no air-conditioning, (2) lots of street noise, (3) poor wifi connection on ground floor.

The hostel is the best that I had stayed in my life! Big rooms, I definitely would return. I stayed in a 12 people room, but it was a big room, and maybe in common hostels in the same room they would put 20 people there. The security could improve, like, with big boxes under de beds, like grades to put the luggage. The bathrooms and showers are amazing, very cleaned, and spacious as well. The kitchen is very well equipped.

Lovely staff - so helpful, happy and sweet. In a beautiful old building that used to be a restaurant. Very warm. Lovely old rooms.

The location is excellent, rooms are spacious and clean. Free breakfast is good. It is not a typical backpackers hostel but more a hostel with all kinds of people and ages. It is possible to meet other travellers whilst you are traveling alone.

Excellent! I don't usually book hostels for more than 10-15€ because I believe that if you're sleeping in a 8 or 10 bed dorm, you shouldn't be paying that much. In this case I had to, because being a small city this was the cheapest, but it was actually worth it! Location is priceless, loved waking on my top bed and see the main square, the bridge and the river. Nicest Staff, great Breakfast. I'll defn stay here again, just hope they don't increase the prices based on these positive reviews ;)

Amazing place !!

location of the hostel is excellent, right by the old city. hostel itself is very clean and kitchen/common area is a great combo of old and modern. it is not the friendliest place, and has more a feel of a hotel. staff is friendly on its own, yet the atmosphere is somehow lacking, especially for a solo traveler.

Nice place, very big clean rooms, excellent location is the biggest selling point. Didn't have an atmosphere when I was there but otherwise I had a good stay.
