The guy owner was lovely!!! Lots of cool things coming for this hostel. Good breakfast and linen! Need towels and a drying rack in rooms. Need to create atmosphere with a good bar tender. Lots of very young kids so perhaps more of a family hostel at this stage. Bike tour was ok but the More

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, More

Backstay is great-- best features were definitely the fun 'pod' beds, and the awesome included breakfast! Ghent is very walkable, so location, despite being a bit of a ways from the train station, is still manageable. Only negatives were having to put sheets on the top bunk-- it was a bit More

Everything was amazing. I literally have no complains. Distance from the center or train station is not an issues for me because i like walking but there are transport options. It was clean, beautifully designed and renovated, it has lots of personality and you can feel it was made with a More

WE LOVED ANDROMEDA!!! It was a totally unique experience staying on a riverboat. A wonderful organic, fare trade breakfast is included. Fantastic to sit up on the deck and enjoy the morning and evening sun. It's admittedly a 45 minute walk from the train station (though you can also take a More
