Hostel Uppelink invites you to stay at one of the oldest and most beautiful houses in the center of the medieval district of Ghent. Be welcome to enjoy the authentic character of one of the houses once visited by Erasmus of Rotterdam.

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.

Our prices include a breakfast buffet, sheets, a personal locker, internet, wi-fi and all taxes, including the Ghent tourist tax of 2.50 euros per person per night.

Prices are per person per night.
