Nice hostels. However, I guess the owner need to improve on the cleanliness as I had some rashes on my hands after the stay. A lot of mosquitoes during the night. Even though it was stated at the reception that we can rent the mosquitoes repellent, but the mosquitoes are only out at night, and the reception was closed at night.

It was a joy to stay at this hostel - thoughtful decoration, clean and wonderful staff. The hostel is close to the centre of gent and also to the train station. They have a lovely backyard where I enjoyed reading a book.

Everything was great. The rooms were beautiful. There was a computer and kitchen. The wifi was a little hard to get to work. The rooms were very hot but very clean! Overall we enjoyed it.

Great hostel! The beds were comfortable, the staff were really friendly and helpful and everything was clean. The area downstairs was also decorated rather pleasantly and was very comfortable not to mention the kitchen was very well-equipped (there were even eggs available for breakfast and a coffee machine!). Overall the atmosphere was very quiet and relaxed, aimed at persons looking for some peace and quiet. Just remember to keep the window closed, there are a tonne of mosquitos!!

A lovely place to stay in Gent. However it is out of the centre you can get there quickly. The common room/dining room/hall was astonishing. The best I have ever seen. It is clean, stylish, cool. I loved it. The breakfast was awesome. They have normal coffee! :)

It was a very good experience! The hostel was extremely clean and tidy, and I appreciated that. It was also quiet so that people who want a calm experience can definitely choose this hostel. Really tasteful, the breakfast was okay,so I would generally reccommend it!

Best service I've ever received, friendly, helpful, funny (Give Pablo a raise!) . Rooms were spotless including the bathrooms. Location is a five-ten minute walk from most major sights and transit. Fastest wifi I've ever had in a hostel. Only down side..,, and I had to look hard, they need mesh on the windows to keep mosquitoes out, I had a few bites. As well, I left early and didn't know what to do with the keys so I left them on the check out desk... I will be returning anytime I visit!

Can't say a bad word about this hostel. The staff were friendly, the room was clean, fantastic shower compared to most other hostels, free small lockers in the rooms, fully equipt kitchen, a nice courtyard and in a great spot to get to all the historical sights!

The place is very clean and new with some lively themed artsy decor. There is a large comfortable sitting area with book exchange next to the kitchen which is HUGE. The equipments in the kitchen are very nice and new. You can tell the owners put a lot of thought into the whole place and it makes you feel welcomed. The breakfast was very good (Eggs, bread, yoghurt, cereal, fruits and nuts) Lockers and internet in the room were good. The bathrooms are also nice and clean. Check the place out! :)

Nice new hostel in good walking distance to main parts of Ghent. Hostel lacked showers (only 1 per floor) but good kitchen facilities and breakfast was good. No atmosphere unfortunately, maybe wrong part of the year - there were only really large groups or sporadic asocial guests here when I stayed - and very little to do therefore in the evening as a solo traveller.
