In an excellent location in a quiet street right in the centre of Gent, the hostel is just 150m from the famous medieval Castle of the Counts. Retaining a period facade, it offers a high standard of accommodation with 27 rooms all with private bathrooms. Facilities include TV, internet access (Hotspot), bar, and self-service restaurant. A great buffet style breakfast & sheets are FREE. The hostel has WIFI internet, you can use your own laptop or the internet kiosk at the hostel.

Comming by train from Gent Sint-Pieters station, take tram n� 1 - 10 or 11 and get off at the 'Gravensteen' castle. Than follow the tram for aprox. 100m, take the 1st street on the right (Gewad) & again 1st on the right.(St-Widostraat)
The hostel is at the end of the street just in front of the square.

Travelling by car: if you have a GPS, enter 'Lievekaai' as street and you should have no problems finding the hostel. (Lievekaai = square in front of hostel).
If you don't have a GPS, please contact the hostel for instructions. Due to the large number of one way streets, Gent is not the easiest town in Belgium to drive around. (except for locals)
