From start to finished Ecohostel was an awesome choice. I was traveling with a friend, my first time in Europe, had only planned to stay one night in Ghent to just see the beautiful canal and architecture, but we ended up meeting wonderful people and staying another night! The beds were lovely, we even got our own private room unintentionally.... More

Just got back from a 2 night stay at the ecohostel in Ghent. 12 of us went for a friends stag do and what a cracking time we had. Ghent is a fantastic city and when you can be there in a couple of hours from the UK it is just to good to be missed. The ecohostel was chosen... More

We only stayed one night, but it was enough for us to enjoy this place. Beds are comfortable (we stayed in a room with 8 beds), delicious breakfast (all types of bread, jam, coffee machine), and friendly owners.

A buddy and I traveled to Ghent and had only planned on staying a day. Lisa's Ecohostel Andromeda provided such a perfect overnight, we decided to stay for two more days. The barge is a bit of a hostel miracle. Decor's charming, honesty fridge is well-stocked with beer, snacks, and juices, everything is quite safe and secure, the rooms are... More

Stayed here 1 night in the 8 bed dorm. Was a very friendly stay, the owners happy to help you with recommendations and what to see. The facilities were good, roomy dorm, and nice shower and toilet facilities. Also great ecological ethos. It is a little walk from town but nothing too arduous and definitely worth it for the opportunity... More

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!!
