    The view and location is not oversold. This place is legitimately right in the heart of the main center and has epic views of the medieval architecture and rivers. The hostel itself is also well above-average...friendly and helpful staff, decent facilities, and a good social atmosphere in the common area. Definitely recommend Hostel Uppelink if you're going to be staying in Ghent.

    Awesome stay. This is my third time staying at uppelink.. my room was spotless the view over the river was amazing, The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, it’s cozy clean safe and literally the best location you can possibly imagine. The storage lockers for when you checkout are awesomely hide and store you belongings. The only kind of downside is that the shower room is coed and it’s not real convenient the way it’s set up but that’s just the lagistics s of how the building is.

    Very nice hostel with a beautiful view, located at the historical center of Gent. The staff was nice and the breakfast is good and you can book it at the evening for the next morning for a cheap price. If I return to Gent I would definately sleep there again.

    Best part of this hostel is the location, it is probably as good of a location as you could ask for and the staff are really helpful with recommendations. Their virtual key card is pretty neat as well.

    Perfect location but that is the only reason to stay here. Don't expect to have wifi and don't expect much from the rooms or bathrooms.
