Best Ghent hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Ghent hostel

  • For travelers on a budget interested in Ghent hostels, Hostel Uppelink is a great choice. It is a highly rated, affordable option in the center of the historical district. They offer a variety of mixed dorm rooms, a female-only dorm room, and can also be booked for large groups. With a great view of the three towers of Medieval Ghent, and right on the edge of the Medieval Port, there are a variety of activities nearby, including exploring the city on a kayak or taking a free walking tour.
  • For a unique stay in Ghent, consider booking with Treck Hostel. You can stay in one of nine different themed caravan campers, including Hawaii and Retro themes. There are also areas where you can pitch your own tent indoors, so you don’t have to worry about the weather. This hostel is great for couples because most campers have a double bed inside. Unlike some other Ghent hostels, Treck is somewhat outside the city center. Expect to take 20min on foot or 5-10min on a bike, which you can rent from the hostel.
  • If you’re looking for a laidback place to stay, Kaba hostel is located just outside the hustle and bustle of the city center, but still within walking distance to Graslei and Sint-Baafs Cathedral. The quiet hostel has a green garden and sunny terrace for you to return to after exploring the city, and artwork by local artists decorates the walls. It is a small hostel, with only 37 beds, so it is one of the Ghent hostels more suited for solo travelers.
  • If you’re traveling with a large group, consider booking a stay at De Draecke Hostel. They are well equipped to handle business and school groups, with meeting rooms and a restaurant for groups available upon request. While many Ghent hostels offer tours, De Draecke Hostel has three different options, including a graffiti and street art tour and a Ghent by night tour.
