13 O'Clock Hostel Gent
Ranked #16 of 38 Speciality Lodging in Ghent
Reviewed 17 October 2013

The hostel is very new. Actually, when I was there, they had been open for only 2 weeks. So, of course, everything is really new.... not as new or like new or looking like new... lol.
I have stayed in a single private room... which includes private bathrom, a mini-kitchen (with a stove and cutlery), a single bed and a cabinet large enough to be used by 2 persons.
The location is really very close to the historical center and you really do not need a car to go arround the mais tourist attractions. If you're with a a car (I was), you can leave it in the public underground parking located at the nearest corner. As far as I can remember, costs 12 euros/day (oct 2013).
The staff was very helpful during my checkout... so I have nothing bad to say about the hostel. I would really use its services again.

Excellent hostel, good clean rooms with kitchen and large comfy beds, friendly staff and great location next to the Kouter square. Very hygenic and recently renovated. Furthermore, whenever something needed to happen the staff was ready to help out.

I really enjoyed my stay at 13 o'clock. The rooms were well equipped and even had a fridge, a sink and a desk. I especially liked the clean, white style the hostel is being held in. Together with the colorful room numbers and the "stay fit!" lettering next to the stairs it created a very youthful and fresh atmosphere.

Stayed there for the weekend and overall it was really good !

The rooms are quite big and comfortable. There is also hotplates and a fridge so you can cook for yourself (and there is a small supermarket nearby). Everything is clean and brand new.

The hostel is located in the city center, so you can do anything by foot.

I'll definitely come back to this hostel if I'm in Gent again !

We organized a trip with 50 students to Ghent and stayed there 2 nights. The owner was really friendly and helpful for us all the time. The hostel is brand new so the rooms were very nice: spacious, clean and had everything you need for a short or even a longer period of time to spent. Also the location was perfect, right in the center but not next to a busy street so you could have a good night sleep. I would definitely recommend for everyone going to Ghent!

The hostel is very close to the center, we could walk all distances by foot. The rooms were totally new and had nice furniture, in the kitchen there was everything necessary to cook yourself. Even though not very important, I liked the design of the hostel, very modern. And there's a lift, so no problem if you've got more luggage. I really enjoyed my stay there and would go there again :)

I really liked my stay in the hostel, since it was all brand new you could even smell it! :)
The showers were really big and all the rooms had a different design. Also there was kitchen equipment in each room and a fully working kitchen. The beds were comfy as well!
The location of the hostel is really great, because you can walk to anything within a few minutes!
Also big thanks to the staff for the kindness! :)

Would love to come back!
