Property Description

Ship ahoy!
After sailing the seven seas we dropped our anchors in the sparkling, enchanting city of Gent. Life is pretty good in Gent, why wouldn't it be?
The city is fun and relaxed, the people are charming and welcoming, and our boat is eco friendly and unique!

But more importantly, the showers are huge and warm, the beds are big and soft, breakfast is yummie and organic/fair trade, and, hey... you are on a boat!
It's not everyday you can be a pirate, you might as well go for it!! Arrrrr

We are moored on a lazy canal just outside the city center, you can either walk (1 km), or take a tram if your sealegs can't carry you anymore.
Please note that the city tourist tax (3€ pppn) is not included, sorry for that! View House Rules

    We loved this stay! It was so lovely to be on the water. The common area was very pleasant and there was a nice deck outside.

    Ecohostel is such a beautiful spot!! The boat has a very nice warm feeling that made me feel like home. I was so surprised how big it actually is!! The rooms, showers, bathroom and kitchen are clean and beautifully decorated. I highly recommend it and I will 100% come back to stay at it!!

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in with it having a really unique and great experience. The owner was really kind and friendly on arrival while the boat itself was surprisingly spacious with the rooms being really clean and well done. The free breakest in the morning was great being a real addded bonus. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting something different, being a great base to explore gent

    Very nice hostel worth knowing about. The atmosphere onboard is very enjoyable, with attention paid to decoration. Breakfast is nice, with mostly bio products.

    Ecohostel Andromeda was a very pleasant place to stay: not big or noisy, with very comfortable beds and a friendly atmosphere. It's only a 15-minute walk from the city center. And it's pretty cool that it's on a boat! That means that you have to dispose of toilet paper in the trash instead of flushing it, which takes some getting used to, but other than that, the narrow hallway, and very occasional movement, you wouldn't even realize you're on a boat.

    Fun experience to sleep on a boat! It's stationary, so no rocking in the water, which is good. The rooms were surprisingly comfortable. There's not a lot of space, but better than you might imagine. The owners were really friendly, they stocked the kitchen with snacks and drinks on the honor system and trusted guests to report what they took which I really appreciated, and made me feel at home. The location isn't too far from the town center, but it is a walk. Breakfast was simple but free.

    First time staying on a boat and I slept well. A little of a walk to town but if you need a very quiet spot, this is it. The owner was good and allowed an early check in following a night bus. So that was very welcomed. Great showers and a small place to mingle. Fresh bread for breakfast and loads of spreads. Good job.

    Super cool place to stay, although it’s a bit far from the centre of the city. The wifi only really worked in the lounge room but it was a cute lounge area anyway. Breakfast was good. There’s also a little outside area to sit upstairs.
