Everything was excellent. The only drawback is the lack of curtains for privacy. But’s the case in all the hostels at Ghent. So it’s not a drawback of the hostel as such. Remember to have a 50 cent coin if you want to use the coin operated locker inside the hostel room, which is returned when you open the locker.

Great location, really nice showers, helpful staff. The common area is really just to sit down and eat, the breakfast was buffet style (eggs, bread, cheese, juice/tea/coffee, cereal, fruit, etc). Overall would recommend if you’re looking for a quiet/clean hostel!
