    This hostel was amazing! The location is amazing, and the building itself is stunning and very cute. All the facilities are great and the front desk staff was very helpful. Rooms were good and spacious and had a nice view of Ghent. Common rooms/spaces were really nice to hangout in, unlike lots of other hostels —there’s also a cute little bar inside. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

    Staying here is very nice for a hostel and the rooms and beds are laid out very nice. It is right on a big river and has a lot to offer in the area. Take a free walking tour one day you are staying.

    Good, cheap beer. Good location. Great collection of maps (be sure to pick up all the USE-IT maps!!!!). Staff were very friendly! Renting the kayaks was great and loads of fun. Only minor downside was that the toilets tended to smell a bit

    Very nice staff and great free walking tour Nice room. Showers weren’t the greatest but the bathrooms were generally pretty clean. Nice that there was laundry. Not close to train station but perfect location in historic city centre. Nice that you can walk to all of the sights.

    Check in took way longer than it should have. They say check in starts at 3pm and I arrived around 3:20pm. They told me to wait in the lounge for 10 minutes but I was waiting for an hour before I was able to go up to my room.
