Some of the designs are distinctive but overall I was a little disappointed. It seems like so many works were mixed together with none particularly standing out.

I didn't see something like that again. A whole road full of graffiti! It was really good and it is worth it to go there and take a photo maybe!

The street had a few cool designs, but much of the artwork was more low-level street graffitti. It was cool to see, but not something I would go out of my way to see.

Of course this is not for hours of walking, the street is pretty short. But still, interesting enough to walk through. I was surprised how thick the layer of paint at some places was.

It feels a little rundown and derelict and I am not sure if I would walk down here as a woman alone at night but the art is cool and thought provoking with many different themes.

As a fan of urban street art, I appreciated that Ghent had an entire street dedicated to it--an attempt, no doubt, by the local authorities to constrain it to a particular area. While the attempt is admirable, the very nature of graffiti is that it is an act of rebellion and I know, from only visiting for a few days, that there are other areas of the city which have been graced by some beautiful artwork.

As far as the official graffiti street goes, there are are some fine examples of street art here--not just simple tags and more elaborate embellishments, but some very nice examples of thematic art which is impressive in its execution. This place is definitely worthy of 10 minutes of your time to wander down the lane and take in the colors and patterns.

Totally underwhelmed. We were some spectacular street art and this was not. Some people may love it but definitely not my cup of tea. It’s free so you can make your own mind up.

This is an interesting idea. To have one alleyway dedicated to graffiti artists in an attempt to keep them away from the other sites in the centre. It is appears to work. It fits in nicely with a walking tour.

This is just an alley where graffiti is allowed and local people paint on the walls. Most of it is just scribbling, but there are some neat designs and paintings. If you happen to see it, a walk down the alley would be quick, but I wouldn't seek it out as an attraction.
