This is a very good choice if you want to stay in Ghent for a few days. Hostel feels very new and the rooms and showers are very spacious and clean. Beds are good and owner is very friendly and helpful.

I had an amazing stay here!! Youri (owner) was great and helped us figure out the next part of our trip! The beds were good and the hostel was clean! The showers were great!! I would go back to Ghent only if I were staying here. The hostel made the time in Ghent memorable!!

This place is super clean, great value and in a great location there is nothing bad to say about this hostel or Gent! Free to use hot drinks machine anytime and apparently the breakfast was nice. I missed it because all the strong Belgian beers ruined me. I'll certainly return to Gent and Hostel 47.

A wonderful hostel! Great location (a short walk from the Sint-Jacobs flea market, which was a highlight for me), beautiful decor, wonderful showers and toilets (incredibly clean), comfortable beds, free hot drinks machine, which can be used anytime, and a fairly substantial breakfast. I happened to be staying at this hostel when I was the only guest, which I personally...

We were a group of three that stayed here for an extended period due for work in Ghent. The hostel itself was extremely clean and within walking distance from all amenities and city center. We were given helpful maps on arrival and the owner, Youri, was always happy to answer any queries we had about the area. We also had...

Unfortunately, this was not a good hostel. Due to the positive reviews, our expectations were high. Hostel 47 did not live up to it's good reputation. On the first night, none of the toilets would flush. This was extremely inconvenient and a problem in the whole building, but the owner didn't answer the phone. (he lives across the street) The...

We've spent there only one night. (There was no extra charge because of it, for example for the bed linen.) The place is modern, well equipped and clean. The staff is very kind. The town center is very close (have to mention here that Gent is one of the most amazing cities I've ever seen - totally reommended). Hostel 47...

Just recovering from a great stay in Gent with friends. Hostel 47 was part of it. Although the automated heating system broke down in our room (which made it 25 degrees inside) the rest of the stay was good value for money. The facilities are brand new, the breakfast simple but sufficient (good coffee!) and the environment is not neglected...

I stayed one night in this hostel. I was lucky because I stayed alone in the 6-people room. Bathrooms and toilets were really clean. The best that I've seen so far. Wi-fi did not exist in third floor. Breakfast was like what it had to be. Accomodation was quite good. 5-10 minutes walking to the central areas.
