    This is one of the best hostels we stayed in during our 2-month trip in Europe. It has the perfect location with this awesome view of the historic center. The kitchen is big enough and there is plenty of space in the common room. The staff is very helpful and welcoming. The ONLY not so perfect point are the toilets but when you see the actual building, you’ll understand why. We loved Ghent.

    Best Hostel I've been to for location and a quiet evening! Free walking tours and the staff were really helpful! And did I say location! Absolutely amazing! My only complaint would be for more organization for night time activities, it was kind of difficult to meet people as a solo traveler at this hostel. That being said, if traveling to Gent I would 100% recommend!
