Amazing experience of sleeping on a boat in the middle of a river. Rooms are nice, essential and clean; and breakfast is simple but rich. Not too far from the city centre and the tram that bring you ti the station!

Now the ecohostel Andromeda is a fabulous place to spend some time! It is a boat right on the river in Gent. It has four cozy dorms, of which at least one is a double bedroom. Mattresses are comfy, showers clean and hot, coffee available at any time and free wifi provided. This hostel is completely ecofriendly yet lacks no...

Our room really had the boat-feeling to it :) had a good night sleep. Friendly welcoming, clean, peaceful location, the boat was super cool... Breakfast simple, but plenty and tasty. Showers a bit hot and be careful, not all water is drinkable!

Quite close to the city centre but far away enough for tranquility. It's quiet and refreshing and after a heavy few nights in Amsterdam this place did me a world of good. The breakfast is a bit basic but there are so many good places just 10 minutes you'd be fool to rely on it anyway.

From start to finished Ecohostel was an awesome choice. I was traveling with a friend, my first time in Europe, had only planned to stay one night in Ghent to just see the beautiful canal and architecture, but we ended up meeting wonderful people and staying another night! The beds were lovely, we even got our own private room unintentionally....

We only stayed one night, but it was enough for us to enjoy this place. Beds are comfortable (we stayed in a room with 8 beds), delicious breakfast (all types of bread, jam, coffee machine), and friendly owners.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We know a hostel can make a big difference while travelling, so we try to offer you a place that reflects the spirit of Ghent: somehow different and headstrong, friendly, fun, but most of all relaxed! So hopefully you'll like Ghent as much as we do!!The hostel is located on a boat on a lazy canal just outside town, in walking distance of the historic centre. It's not everyday you can be a pirate, you might as well go for it! And don't forget that land was created to provide a place for boats to visit... ... more   less
