    Hostel Uppelink has completely changed my perspective towards hostels. 1. Amazing location and view from the bedroom: the building was situated right at the heart of Ghent and within walking distance to all attractions. 2. There were ample of shower cubicles and toilets were clean. 3. The guest kitchen was a pleasant surprise! Didn't notice it during booking, but was glad we were able to cook some homely meals with friends. 4. Cozy common area and architecture of building was impressive!

    Honestly the best hostel I’ve stayed in yet. Location is stellar. Staff was great. Hostel was clean. View from room was unlike any other. Perfect hostel to stay in while in Gent, really. Literally the only thing I think should be changed are the pillows... they’re not good haha. But really all around the best hostel!

    Such a cool hostel, definitely a place you MUST stay in when in Ghent. Such a calm but social atmosphere, dorm rooms are large, clean and comfortable. They provide walking tours, beer tastings, the bar/living room is nice to hang out in. Super central to the main town, really enjoyed my stay, can’t fault the place.

    Location is perfect. Nice dorm room, nice bed and clean, with lockers, very secured. Kitchen is well equipped and the dining area with super nice view. 10 shared shower rooms, 3 shared toilets (3 for female, 3 for male), just avoid the peak hour is ok.

    Early risers be warned-- it is LOUD at night! If you're facing the river you can feel the entire room shake when a car crosses the bridge.

    Lockers are small and there's no guitar. Other than that it's literally perfect, go get the walking tour on your first day and fall in love with Ghent like I unexpectedly did. For 5 nights it was my base in Belgium and my favorite mid sized city in Western Europe.

    Fantastic location and easy to access from both train stations in Ghent. Good kitchen and dining/lounging facilities with a supermarket within 2 min walk. However, be warned if you want to sleep in during the morning - it’s very noisy from about 8am onwards, and the sound of doors opening and closing carries through the hostel! Also there wasn’t much socialising happening while I was there in the communal areas. Good if you want to relax on your own.

    Very Good

    Hostel located in a perfect position with a fantastic view. Therewas no soap in the toilet for the two days I stayed there,which means that it wasn't cleaned and in fact it wasn't so clean. Moreover there were just 3 toilets for more than 40 people.
