    This is a clear winner, no need to think twice about booking this hostel! Easily wins ‘best view from a hostel’ award from me! The charm and atmosphere are like nothing I’ve experienced before. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are super clean. As a solo female traveller, I felt safe. The location is incredible. Just book it!

    The location is great. The staff here was especially amazing and helpful! They helped me arrange a kayak that I took around the canals as a way to see the city right when I arrived. I highly recommend it.

    Great location, solid all around experience! Large dorms aren't the greatest and as mentioned hard to make a top bunk but otherwise everything else is grand in the historic building.

    Hostel is in an amazing location, right in the centre of Ghent and has a great view from the dorms. I stayed in the 14 bed room, it was spacious and comfortable. It can be quite noisy in the early morning, as the room shakes when trams go past. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Would absolutely recommend staying here, excellent value for money.

    This hostel is inside of a historic building right next to St. Michael's Bridge. Couldn't ask for a better location in historic Ghent. There's good security, good facilities, friendly and helpful staff, good price for the location/quality. I was honestly dead shocked that such a beautiful building in a prime location like this would be used as a hostel. I cannot imagine a better hostel experience in a city like Ghent.

    amazing hostel right in the city center in a historic building! as a solo traveller it wasn't the best for meeting other people as there were lots of families and school groups staying there, but the staff was so friendly, bathrooms were nice and clean, and lounge area was super nice. Only annoying thing is that the lounge closes at 11:30pm, so if you're looking for a place where you can stay up late talking/drinking/working, this hostel is not the place to do so.

    Hostel Uppelink is a great choice if you are looking for an affordable and comfortable stay in Ghent. The showers and bathrooms are shared with everyone but otherwise, the facilities provide everything that you need during your stay. I would definitely recommend Uppelink.
