“more like a trendy hotel (with roommates) thank a hostel”
Reviewed September 17, 2010

after a month in the dorms at the Universiteit van Amsterdam, i was shocked to find the mattress of the top bunk in my room at Hostel 47 to be SO much more comfortable. this place does not disappoint -- super clean, everything is white with dark hardwood floors (check out the website, the photos don't lie), very sleek. the staff could not be friendlier. located on a quiet residential street a short walk from the historic center, i felt very safe (important to a single female traveler). if you're headed to ghent, definitely give youri a call -- or check out the website! www.hostel47.com
