Overview

Hostel Uppelink is a hidden historic gem in Ghent’s city centre. The 13th-century building is a sight in itself (destined for Instagram). Plus, our prime position next to the medieval harbour means you get amazing views over the Lys River from our homely common room and front-facing bedrooms. Get your bearings on our free city walking tour (in English or Spanish) or bond with fellow travellers at our board game nights and Belgium beer-tasting events.

Location

We’re on the corner of Korenlei Quay – a handy base to explore the main sights. The city’s iconic towers, St Nicholas’ Church, the Belfry and St Bavo’s Cathedral are just a 2-minute walk away. Head to the flea market at Bij Sint-Jacobs for vintage trinkets and check out the awesome St James’ Church in the square (a 10-minute wander). Arriving from Brussels National Airport? It’s about an hour's train ride to the main railway station Gent-Sint-Pieters. Hop on a tram to Gent Korenmarkt Perron 5. We’re a 2-minute stroll from there.

Rooms and Dorms

We’ve got mixed and female-only dorms, as well as private rooms – all light and airy with shared bathrooms. We'll sort you out with free bed linen so don't worry about finding extra cash. You'll get free Wi-Fi and adaptors – so you can always stay connected. If you're travelling light, you can use our hairdryers and hire towels here too. When you head out, just lock your valuables away in your security locker.

Extras and activities

Get stuck into our buffet-style breakfast (for a small fee) before you head out – and don't forget to grab a free city map before you go. You can also hire one of our kayaks to see the sights from a new perspective. No worries if you get a little wet – we’ve got laundry facilities on-site and a bar to share funny stories over a beer! Our friendly reception staff are also happy to help with any questions.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. The location was absolutely perfect. There is only one bathroom with showers because of the historic nature of the building but that totally wasn’t an issue because there were a ton of showers in there.

    THE place to stay in Ghent. Our dorm had such beautiful views and was very comfortable. The common area and kitchen were also very comfortable and the breakfast was great.

    If you're a light sleeper this may not be the hostel for you. The tram runs frequently next to the hostel and is not only loud but shakes the room as well. Other than that my stay was enjoyable. Beautiful location, nice atmosphere, etc.

    Very nice location in the heart of the historic city center. Was easy to get there. The only problem was the shower which was on the other floor and it was quite cold to get there.

    Great location, couldn’t get better. Staff was ok, helped me with what I needed. I joined the free walking tour, it was great. Dorm was ok, nothing special and they only have small lockers but I had a good sleep. Not much of a social hostel but that was ok for me.

    Perfect location, but the building was a little cold (the room and shower room). It wasn't as cozy, but still nice. Compared to the hostels I've been before, it was much more expensive and not as cozy. But if you only go there to sleep then it's good.
