The hostel is located in the very centre of the city and the view from our room was amazing. From the view, it seemed we were sleeping in a 4 stars hotel!
The service is kind and friendly, the rooms are well furnished, spacious (something not very common in a hostel) and clean.
Wi-fi is good throughout the building.
The Fair-trade breakfast is included and you can enjoy it in the lounge whit the view of the canal.
No matter how trustful is your guide, take a map of the city from the hostel counter, it's full of great tips to enjoy every single moment in Ghent.
The lockers are unfortunately too small for an average backpack so you will have to leave it under your bed and lock away only the most important things.
Try it out, you won't be disappointed.
