I quite liked this hostel, mostly for how amazing the free breakfast was and the cool decor. I wasn't warned about the serious construction going on just outside which makes it kind of inaccessible to cars. Everything's pretty clean and nice, the front desk folks are helpful, and the great thing is that it's definitely not going to be noisy...

Really funky decor and clean hostel. Everything is nice and new. The rooms were really spacious and the bathrooms were really pristine. Pretty good location. My only complaint was that the lockers are super small, so you'll only be able to use the locker for your valuables while leaving clothes and any other luggage out.

The hostel is located between the city centre and the Dampoort train station. The place seems quite newly renovated and the staff is very helpful. The breakfast is fantastic. The wifi signal is a bit in some spots and the hostel us somewhat close to a redlighty area. All in all a great laid back place to stay.

I loved to stay in this hotel. I went to visit Ghent with a few friends, we rented a 6 people room because there were 6 of us, and everything was great. The rooms were clean, with heating, and confortable beds (each with its own light). The floor's bathroom was also spotless. The reception was amazing, right at the beggining...

Newly renovated, this hostel is situated on the edge of the city center in an old town house with hight ceilings and extremely generous, spacious rooms.

Be aware there is a 3€...

The only problem that I found it was the toilet inside the room. it was so could without a heating. In the average the hostel is good, the room is cleaner, quiet and perfect for relaxing. Also the breakfast was good.
