The location is great, but our one night experience at this place wasn't so great. We stayed in a room with 10 beds. All of us were woken up by a drunken couple who made lots of noise at 2am. They later advanced to make love, shamelessly. My friends were so mad he decided to call someone from the hostel...

The Hostel Uppelink is located at one end of the St. Michael's Bridge and opposite St. Michael's Church. The view from Room 3 is of the bridge to the right, the canal to the left, and the St. Gabo's Cathedral, the Belfort and St. Nicholas' Church straight ahead. You may be hard pushed to find such a lovely setting in...

The location cannot be better. It is at the center of the center of Gent. Right opposite to Sint-Michielskerk. Ten minutes' walk to Gravensteen Castle, and to most spots in the centrum. In the morning or in the night, to have a walk from Uppelink is the best way to explore Gent. The facilities are no different from other hostel,...

Hostel Uppelink is the most picturesque hostel in the world. Wake up with a postcard view of Ghent out your window. The staff were so friendly. The communal area and kitchen are very nice and social. The bar has my sour beers! I hope to return in the future.

My stay was really lovely. The employees were super friendly, the hostel was clean and the house itself is just incredible, I almost passed it because it looked "too nice" to be a hostel ;) the view alone is worth coming here. There are free walking tours start directly in the lobby and a proper breakfast buffet that is included...

Location was amazing. Centre of the centre 😊 Room was nice and very clean, with beautiful view. Bed was comfortable. I really liked the common area and the guest kitchen. Breakfast was basic but sufficient. Staff was helpful and kind. Walking tour was also excellent. Toilets are a bit uncomfortable but clean.

The hostel itself is situated in the historic centre of Ghent, prime location. The common space has old cosy chairs, tables, and couches and something was always going on. Great to meet people, especially with the Belgian beer bar attached :) Also a kitchen for those who want to cook. Staff is also very friendly and helpful. Only bad thing...

The team here are lovely, it's a great spot to take a break from the buzz of the town and grab a drink. It's quiet, warm and cosy and the WiFi is good (and free!). I would stay here if I come back to Ghent.

This hostel was one of the nicest ones I stayed during my 3 week trip to Europe. It was very clean and orderly. They offered free breakfast that was actually very good. The location was suburb. I was able to explore the city and always come back to my hostel within fifteen minutes. They also offered a free walking tour...
