    I absolutely loved this hostel! I was lucky enough to receive the bed right beside the window, so I had an amazing view at Gent, which definitely made the stay so worth it. But the staff is so friendly too, everything is very clean and modern even though it's in an older building. I would definitely stay there again

    This was by far the nicest place I've stayed. Completely worth the price. Stayed here for one night on my way to Brussels and honestly wish I had stayed longer. Building and facilities are beautiful, views are incredible, and location is really magical. Can't compliment this place enough.

    The position of the hostel couldn't be better, its in the center of the city! From the window of the room you can see the historical city center and the canal next to the hostel is an amazing place where to relax while waiting for the sunset and drink a beer. The hostel was clean however showering was a bit annoying because you have to push a button every thirty seconds to get water. To enter every door you need to have you phone and use an online key system.

    Very clean. Staff are excellent. Kitchen is nicely stocked and there's plenty of common space with outlets. The showers are very nice and very clean but they turn off automatically every 30 seconds. No one showers that fast. The laundry area is nice and accessible in the shower room and there are plenty of bathrooms. Rooms can get a little stuffy at night.

    Must stay here in Ghent! The location is perfect and the view from my room was absolutely stunning. Also clean, friendly staff, has all the amenities you need like a kitchen and washer/dryer. There wasn’t a super social atmosphere for solo travellers but I think that’s just Ghent overall. You can still find people to chat with in the bar.

    Amazing location in the heart of the city, views of the canal and churches from the window. Large rooms with lots of bunks, only small lockers in room. The showers are an affront to all that is holy in this world. You have to push a button every thirty seconds to get water and the pressure is terrible. Very clean. Large windows and fans in room. This hostel uses a terrible online key system instead of keycards that is incredible inconvenient. Staff is very helpful and friendly. They do price gouge (rate dou

    Very Good

    The hostel was clean and had nice, modern bathroom facilities. However, the staff were a bit rude and condescending when checking-in guests. And while this is told to us in advance, the hostel felt like it was really leaning into the "upsell" business model for everything it could (besides sheets, which you have to put on yourself).
