Perfect location, right in the city center but it was still quite. Rooms and bathroom was convenient. There are free lockers. Staff was extremely nice and helpful. Breakfast was quite alright. I didn't have any complaints. I wish it was cheap as well but that would be asking for too much :)

Uppelink's location is unbeatable. Also one of the cleanest hostel I've ever slept. Owner was a helpful guy too. But there are couple of problems that I wanna mention that made me give a two star rating. Room was cold when we get there okay we arrived earlier and checked in earlier. We were told that heater will be on... More

Hostel Uppelink is set in a beautiful building in one of the most beautiful parts of Ghent - literally, you look out on Saint Nicholas' Church and the canal from here. The rooms are large and well kept, the bathroom is well maintained and you can come and go pretty much as you please - it ticks all the hostel... More

* There is no better place to put a hostel in Ghent than this one. Direct connection with the railwaystation AND on top of the place with the best view on the 'Three towers' right in the middle of the center. * The people of the hostel are very friendly. They leave in the evening, but you can enter and... More

We took a 6 bed dorm room and were really impressed by the location and cleanliness inside. It was during the ghent festival and Pole Pole night. The best part was... More

Another one of my favourite hostels in Europe! Breakfast included, stunning view, great staff! Not much more you can ask for! Very cool building, like a mini castle! Check in was very personalised, one on one, thus a little slow but it was worth having the attention getting to know the place. A cute kitchen with many essentials if you... More

First off, the staff here at amazing. They work hard and they are so nice to you as soon as you walk in. The overall cleanliness of the common rooms, kitchens, WC's, showers, and the rooms were all well above par from what I've stayed in before. The location is easy to find and is surrounded by all of the... More

Biking thru Belgium, we stayed here 2 nights in the 12 person mixed gender room facing the canal. There were many other bikers staying there, so there was a slight sense of community amongst bikers. Clean, friendly, quiet (for a hostel), with a location that cannot be beat, we had a great stay. The view from our room and the... More
