Treck Hostel is located in a former brickyard from 1854. It's the first indoor camping in Belgium. You don't sleep in a basic double room but in one of our ten theme caravans. For example: you can relax in the Zen caravan, reminisce about the past in the Retro caravan, run around wildly at the Jungle caravan or laze out in the hammock of the Hawaii caravan. Some of the caravans are designed by young artists of Ghent. Extra: for those who like wood, there's also a lovely suite. Curious? You can book a caravan for two, three or four persons. If you're traveling with friends, it's also possible to sleep in the small or the large dorm, with 5 and 13 beds respectively. The hostel also has a large relaxing room with a cosy sitting area, two pingpong-tables and a table football. For those who want to be a bit lazier: in our movies caravan, there's a nice television screen in vintage style waiting for you. If you want to cook for your friends, you can use our new kitchen. When you book an overnight stay at Treck Hostel, you get a tasty and fresh breakfast. The buffet is being served in our cosy bar 'Treckhaak' (Dutch for Towbar), a bar with a playful blend of styles, chairs, crates and cupboards on a warm wooden floor. Do you prefer the sun? Have a drink on our relaxing terrace or on one of the patios of the beautifully restored brickyard.

I really enjoyed my stay at Treck Hostel. The staff is really nice and will go out of their way to help you. Even though I stayed in a regular dormitory, the vibe in the hostel is really cool. The areas with all the decorated caravans is so original and nice! The breakfast that is included was very good, you get plenty of choice. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

We stayed here for one night whilst stopping over in Ghent. The staff were really friendly, the hostel easy to find and only a 10 minute walk into the old town - parking was only Eur3 for the whole day too!. It's a fantastic hostel, a really fun and quirky idea and a great place to stay. There's a huge indoor recreational area with table tenni, climbing frames, seating area as well as plenty of board games and even an in house cinema (well, a caravan with a TV and Netflix!). There's plenty of toilets and showers too! There's also an outdoor space for relaxing in, bike hire and a bar. What's not to like!

This is for sure one of the best hostels I've been to. The design is spectacular, the staff are realy nice, the common areas are awesome and the atmosphere is great. The only down side is the distance from the city center, though tram is quite cheap so not that big of a deal

Thank you very much for your kind review, Asaf! We're located 1.7 km from the city centre, so 20 min by foot or 5 min by bike or tram. You can rent bikes with us or take a tram 150m from the hostel. Always welcome! Team Treck

Treck just has such a nice atmosphere and offers much more than a charming spot to crash for a night after a busy day exploring Ghent. Staff are top-notch, with a great attitude towards genuinely serving customers, and welcoming them to a unique hostel that they can be proud of. The cosy bar offers plenty of opportunity to socialise and grab a tasty and generous all-inclusive breakfast. Naturally, with around half the accommodation offered being private and surpassing the usual back packers budget, there is less "youth" energy than the usual hostel, but Treck is not your usual hostel and even as the youngest guest there I still enjoyed my stay and appreciated all that the place had to offer. The location isn't a problem with a bike, or two feet and a desire to explore the interesting neighbourhood. Or a tram/ bus stop which are both nearby
