Fantastic hostel with great beds at a great location in Ghent. We used this hostel as a place to stay with a group of 11 friends to go to the Gentse Feesten. Only minor issue was with the showers: there was a technical issue causing the water temperatures to range from very cold to very hot. But I assume that's just a temporary glitch. Otherwise great hostel. Will definitely come here again!

Nice hostel, we stayed here a couple of years ago, and now again. However, it's all a bit dirtier and worn out now. Hard beds, showers supposedly cleaned less than one hour ago but with plucks of hair. It's not a bad hostel, but for what you pay, it should be definitely better maintained.

The hostel is nice and clean. The two-person bed was very small, about 1m20 wide. You better love each other. The staff was not very helpful or knowledgeable; even simple questions as "which restaurant is open on sunday night" were left unanswered (unless you take McDonalds seriously). It turned out that there were a whole bunch of nice restaurants within 5 mins walking.

Fantastic location! Not a party place, if you want hostel parties look elsewhere. But for exploring Dublin: no better place, and very affordable. Bring ear buds though, since street noise may keep you out of your sleep if your room is streetside, though.

Very clean, decent hostel. Great place to sleep, friendly and knowledgeable staff. It's not the place that organizes events, and the bars are in the city, not in the hostel. But other than that: excellent hostel! It's about 10-15 min. walk from city center, and a taxi costs only EUR 1.50, bus EUR 0.35. If you want to sleep well and quiet, and be close enough to the action: no-brainer.

The rooms are definitely not secure. Room keys hang at the (often unmanned) reception, easy to grab from the counter. Everybody can just walk in, grab a room key and open your room. We kept our key with us, instead of leaving it at the reception (there was a sign we had to leave the keys at the reception, but often nobody was there, so we could just take them with us). Otherwise, perfect location, great city!
