Lonely Planet review
Within a classic step-gabled canalside house, the show-stopping attraction at this brand new hostel is the unbeatable view of Ghent’s main towers as seen from the breakfast room and from the biggest, cheapest dorms. Smaller rooms have little view, if any.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel Uppelink and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Ghent.

Description provided by property
Hostel Uppelink is housed in a listed building of historical interest of which the oldest parts go back to 1200. Since then the building underwent two major renovations: in 1662 and in 1909.
In our common area the authentic wooden floors, ceilings, doors, panelworks and fireplaces create an irresistible atmosphere. Our monumental wooden staircase is a piece of art in itself.
In this warm environment you can expect a friendly welcome. We offer small twin rooms and spacious shared rooms with 4, 5, 6, 8 or 10 beds. All beds have quality spring mattrasses and sheets. Brand new toilets and shower facilities can be found down the hall. A key card gives access to the building and the rooms all day and night.
During the day guests are more then welcome in our common area which overlooks the city.
A free buffet style breakfast is being served between 7.30 and 10.00 am. In the evening our cosy breakfast room turns into a modest bar where guests can enjoy a nice Belgian beer.
