Lonely Planet review
Sleep on a reed-sprouting ‘recycled’ barge with small, open-top conversation deck. The boat's canalside moorings are 600m northwest of Oude Begijnhof. Or from tram 1 stop Witte Kaproenenplein walk two minutes south between seven-storey apartment blocks on Alois Joosstraat. It’s not in the most scenic part of the city. Organic breakfast included.
Our independent authors have visited Ecohostel Andromeda and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Ghent.
Description provided by property
After sailing the seven seas we dropped our anchors in the sparkling, enchanting city of Gent. Life is pretty good in Gent, why wouldn't it be?
The city is fun and relaxed, the people are charming and welcoming, and our boat is eco friendly and unique!
But more importantly, the showers are huge and warm, the beds are big and soft, breakfast is yummie and organic/fair trade, and, hey... you are on a boat!
It's not everyday you can be a pirate, you might as well go for it!! Arrrrr
We are moored on a lazy canal just outside the city center, you can either walk (1 km), or take a tram if your sealegs can't carry you anymore.
