We recently rented the whole Hostel bcoz we had a youth congress close by. Everybody including me had a wonderful experience. The rooms were clean, comfy and the dining room was just homely. The breakfast was really good. Took care of both the vegans and the vegetarians. Absolutely pleased and i would recommend any time. Best regards, Jayakar
Clean, new, cosy, kitchen available, not far from the city centre, friendly staff. Would definitely suggest it and go back there on my next stays in Gent. Only suggestion: bring a long charging cable for your mobile phone in case you are staying on an upper bulk bed as no individual plugs available. Altogether, a great choice for value :)
Nico, the receptionist, is great, personable and always one step ahead of one's needs, truly the highlight of the hostel. The breakfast is great and the house really nice. Only thing to keep in mind, (if you dont have a big lugagge that would be uncomfortable to carry up the stairs) i recommend asking for a room in the 2nd or 3rd floor, the bathrooms are way better there than on the 1st.
Just left Ghent after a night in KaBa hostel. The hostel is great. Lots of positives. The staff member (Nico, an Argentinian guy) was very helpful. He was pleasant, engaging and made us feel very welcome. He was the most welcoming person we met in any of our accommodations as we travelled through the Netherlands and Belgium. The room we got was very spacious, and I'm glad they have resisted the temptation to jam in more beds. The window opened fully and was covered by a fully secure mossie net, which was great.this allowed lots of fresh air into the room. The sheets provided were clean, noticeably so. Thank you. The shower and toilet were immaculate. My partner and I loved the common area. The kitchen was just like home, and the nice fresh coffee available all day was appreciated. The breakfast was really very decent and the layout of the eating area helps guests relax. Breakfast included orange juice,tea, coffee, breads, cheeses, meats, and cereals. There's a nice wee garden where guests can enjoy the sun. The common area also has sofas, which are a little tired, though not unwelcoming in any way, in a lounge area which was great, with easy listening music from the radio. We could relax there whenever Ghent tourists’ crowds got too much. I recommend this hostel and would gladly stay again. The staff member deserves special mention, he really made they stay comfortable and I hope the owner notes this review. The location is nice, beside the canals and quiet. One of the better hostels out there, and worth booking if you need a place in Ghent. I’d go back to the hostel if I was in the area again.…
Very comfortable rooms, good breakfasts, great coffee, friendly manager, quiet place and close to the center. Kind prices, tasteful decorations, clean and comfortable bathrooms. I recommend with all my heart.
