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! :)

One of the best hostels I've seen, would definitely recommend! Katrijn is really adorable, the atmosphere is friendly, everything is so clean and the beds are very comfortable.

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.

AMAZING breakfast (meats and cheese, toast, cereal, yogurt, eggs to prepare how you want, espresso machine, tea, juice), friendly staff, EXTREMELY clean. Great to hang out in or just use as a base. There are small, key-operated lockers in the rooms (purse-sized, not backpack sized), security is very good. Super cute decor

We feel we need to return to Gent just to have a reason to stay here again. Exceptionally helpful friendly attitude. The sort of place where you want to take photos of every inch of it.
