I spent two nights in april 2015 and it was great, the guy who receive us was really polite. Good and comfortable beds. The rooms are really big. Clean bathrooms. Nice living room. Great breakfast. It is a really old house, but it`s perfectly adapted to the current needs. Lovely view of Ghent downtown from the window. Great location.

I spent 4 days at Uppelink, I chose the room with 14 beds but seemed like was only 4 people cause the beds aren't so close. The staffs are nice, I should wrote their names to put here cause they really deserve. Perfect location, normal breakfast, everything clean. If you go there you Have to rent a kayak!

I cannot say enough good things about the staff at Upperlink - from the moment I stepped in, the receptionist offered me water as I looked flushed from travelling. She was continually helpful, looking up delays for trains (there was a worker's strike going on in Brussels) and just generally going above and beyond. The culture at the hostel is... More

Prettiest hostel, of an old world style, I have been in. View from kitchen tables over the river is killer. Very friendly and helpful staff. It is a great old building that must be protected or else some corporation would have taken it over. Smart move by the town. Biggest shower room is on top floor. Supermarket across the bridge...

This hostel is placed in the perfect place of the ideal center of the city. The building is from the beginning of 17-th century and a famous guest of it was even Desiderius Erasmus. The breakfast was nice and the prices are really good.

The hostel is located in a very nice-looking old building, in the very center of the old Ghent so you can get around by foot only very easily. The receptionists were all very nice and helpful. The room we were in (a 6-beds dorm room at the top floor) was spacious, clean and bright. The bedding was comfortable. The showers... More

Its a great place and worth the money. Its the best located hostel in Ghent in my opinion! Its in the city center right next to the cathedral, chanels and bars. You can go walking to any of those places, there are several restaurants close to it.
