    I really liked this hostel. Great location in the city center. Very secure - key fob to get into your room and the “back”, it’s needed to get in the front door at night too. Lockers for valuables. Nice kitchen/common area looking down onto the canal. Staff were friendly. Washer/dryer for (paid) use on site. Dorm was large, spacious, high ceilings and really large windows help make it feel quite airy.

    I understand this is a historic building which limits modifications the bathrooms, but the shower and toilet stall situation was not ideal. Also I would have liked privacy curtains on the bunks. Otherwise everything is excellent.

    Great location right in the heart of the old town. Big and spacious lockers in the rooms as well as the room being very big too (I stayed in a 10 person mixed). Not as many bathrooms as there could be, but showers were nice with hot water. Easy to travel around Belgium from the city too. Would recommend staying here if in Ghent or Belgium in general.

    Great hostel with an amazing view of Gent and the river from it. We were on a cycle trip and arrived earlier than check-in but the hostel staff still let us shower, which we were very grateful for, in fact the staff were great and very friendly the whole time. The hostel as a whole was very good, and good value for money. The only negative was that although it says to offer bike storage, we were told upon arrival that they could only be locked outside to the metal railing fence on the street.

    Great location, best in town for this type of accommodation. There are not any other facilities than living room, kitchen, rooms and bathroom/showers. What is needed in a city like Ghent. Due to its historical nature it has a limited amount of bathrooms, yet enough. Showers are okay, could've been more clean but I guess it is what you get at all hostels. Discount rates when booking some tours. Extraordinary free-walking tour w/ meeting point at the hostel. Amazing staff, super friendly.
