We first chose this hostel because it was eco friendly and we were not disappointed! The owners explained us everything they managed to do to respect the environment with pleasure and they even grew plants on the roof! Rooms were clean and colorful which is really nice. The bathrooms were amazing but the kitchen (also used as common room) was... More

This may be the best hostel I have stayed in. It is just fun to be right on the river, woken up by birds and water splashing (although the occasional motor boat will also wake you up). It is memorable to be on a barge in a canal! The rooms are spacious. That said, I would think twice about staying... More

Sunny weather is not included in the price, sorry! But if it rains you have a tram going to the city centre (which is located 1,2 km from here), nice and dry!! It's too sad to let your stay be ruined by the rain... Happy travelling! More

Such a great experience to be in this hostel...the common areas easily let you meet other guests or have a talk with the owners... big showers, always clean...and don't forget to sign the wall of the toilet ;-)

The two owners put into practice what they believe: sustainable living. I stayed here for four nights and almost had the place to myself. Very nice dorms, each bed with own light. Great kitchen/communal room for chilling out. Good breakfast. It was freezing outside, but the dorm and kitchen/communal room area were really warm. I had the chance to speak... More

Best hostel I have ever stayed! The most welcoming and friendly owners of the hostel! With good knowledge about the city! Ecofriendly! Great breakfast, simple but good, even with fresh fruit! The fact that it is on a boat makes it even cooler, room very clean. Ideal located for the gentse feesten! I will be back next year!!

Amazing hostel! It is located on a houseboat, it has a very cozy feel, with colourful rooms and nicely decorated surroundings.The couple makes you feel welcome and will gladly point out great places to eat and let you know about the main events happening there in Ghent. The showers are amazing, beds really solid and comfortable. There is a fridge... More

Recently stayed at the ecohostel for 3 nights. When you arrive you realise the beautiful location of this hostel on a boat and walking around they have all these notes showing how the whole place is environmentally friendly. The only thing I could fault was that I had to leave! The whole place was clean and well maintained, the whe... More

Loved everything about it. Rooms were bigger than expected - we often forgot we were on a boat. Best showers ever been in a hostel. Although push button operation was a little annoying, I liked the commitment to conserving water and it was made up for by great pressure and heat. I liked the honesty box and recycled toilet water.... More

I'm not entirely sure they are happy in their work. From the get go the simplest things were too much effort. Certainly didn't feel welcome in the slightest. The place is clean and tidy enough but the duvets are way to small for an adult. There's only 3 showers which lead to a wait in the mornings. I certainly wouldn't... More

Hi Patrick, or Paddy if you prefer, well let's say it doesn't make us unhappy you never want to return again, since we threw you out of the hostel! By vomiting all over your bed, and over the person sleeping below you, you didn't only spoil our day, but also your friends bachelor weekend! No wonder you rate Amadeus well,... More

this hostel is a really chill-out place in Ghent. Located just outside the city center, the hostel is easily accessible by tram (take line 1) and can be found in a remote and quiet urban area. The hostel itself in on the canal, which not that common but you won't notice anything as there will be no boats passing by.... More
