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 More

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. More

The hostel is on a absolutely beautiful boat! Everything is new and decorated with so much attention for the detail, its amazing! It was a little cold on the hallway, but having in mind that this is an 'eco' hostel and you don't spend so much time there anyways it was totally fine. Rooms More

Really, really cool hostel on a houseboat. We had a fantastic stay there. There are only few rooms, so showers and toilets are plenty (and clean and spacious)! More

great location in the city centre, just behind the castle. Friendly and helpful staff, I really appreciated the option to get a breakfast packed box for those who needed to leave the hostel before the breakfast time. Free wi-fi (good)working only in the lunge and not in the rooms (bad). More

This hostel was fine although wasn't very much happening in the social areas. Perhaps it was because it was a weekday in September. Hostel could do with installing more power sockets in the rooms. More
