Fairly central, hostel is very big, the common area was large and had lots of seating, staff were very very kind and helpful. Staff were super accommodating when I asked to switch rooms. Thank you!
Perhaps it was just the weekend I chose to come here but the mix of people that come here is eclectic. Im a young female and there were tons of older adults and not a young crowd. Also the rooms were tiny and shabby. No soap in the washrooms, cheap thin linens.
They let us leave the our luggage in a safe room, until the check in time. The breakfast was included (very basic breakfast). The bathroom is inside the room, and clean. The location is very good. For transportation to the train station and for walking to the historical part.
Someone arrived after 11pm to our room. Which was really noisy. The beds make sounds when you move.
The room was simple. 2 beds, no sheets on them, you had to take them from the reception and put them together yourself. Bathroom was clean, the water was warm and heating worked great. Breakfast was also very satisfying. The hostel is located not far from the center of ghent. It is a good option for someone that wants to spent the night in the city.
I didn't like the fact that you have to pay for towels. Also, there is no elavator which made it difficult for us to move our luggages to the second floor. Finally and most importantly, check in hour is very very late. We were very tired of waiting until 3pm.
Fantastic location! It took me just 7 minutes to get to the heart of Old Town. Tram stop to get to train station is just around the corner. The room I slept in was very spacious and bed was comfortable. Great breakfast included in the price. Also it's nice to see more environment oriented hostel
WiFi was reaching the room I was sleeping in.
The location was exception which was very close the Gravensteen and at a walking distance to the center. They had breakfast. The rooms were spacious, tidy, comfortable and clean. Lastly, the staff was very friendly. :)
