This is probably the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in--for 22 euro a night, you are getting a 5 star view of Ghent. The view from my room (and lobby) blew me away. The building has that old charm and the common areas are inviting and cozy. The kitchen is clean and has what you need. The bar is pretty cheap and it's nice to sit an have one of their many lovely beers. The rooms are incredibly spacious and everything is clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is standard but hey, at least you get it! They also have nice group events you can participate in if you'd like to. It's not a party hostel but at the same time you can meet nice people without the insanity. Great experience. If you are a backpacker don't stay anywhere else.
