    Superb

    This was the first time I have ever stayed at a hostel and I was incredibly satisfied. The linen they provided is cleaned every day, everything is spotless and has an air of cleanliness to it. Breakfast was also delicious and well stocked. Plus it was close to the city center and the castle. I'm definitely going to recommend this to everybody who wants to visit Gent!

    Booked a private room so can’t speak about the dorms. The location is fantastic and easy to find from the tram stop. No elevator and stairs a little brutal. Walking distance from the center and most of the sites. Breakfast average but overall great stay

    Good

    Only problem with the hostel was that you needed a key card in a slot by the door for power to the room to come on, but this also switched on the main light. This meant I couldn't charge my phone overnight, or you couldn't take a shower if anyone was sleeping as the light in the bathroom won't switch on without the main room light being on. Was quite frustrating.

    The WiFi was super slow and you had to sit close to the lobby to be able to reach it. The showers had no warm water. Suggest you bring your own pillow for a goods night sleep.
