I enjoyed my stay on the boat which was just for one night. The lounge area is nice and comfortable with an 'honesty fridge' stocked with different beers which are priced extremely well. There are jars of waffles/biscuits to snack on for only 50c. The lady that runs the hostel is very nice, I didn't catch her name. Only 2...

The concept of boat as a eco friendly hostel is superbly implemented. The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. The hostel offers free breakfast and has a descent wifi. As it is a boat, there aren't many beds: 18 to be precise. So book in advance , especially during summer The location is 1.5 kms from the city center. Given...

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!

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
