Hostel Uppelink, Ghent
This hostel was by far my favorite while traveling around Europe! Such an awesome and unique vibe. The staff is very friendly and the view is AMAZING!!! Breakfast is included and they also offer to lock your belongings before/after check in/out. (Make sure to bring a thick lock for the lockers at this hostel or else they won't lock properly) Highly recommend this hostel!!! Walking distance to everything you'll want to visit in Gent--- I LOVE this town!

Excellent location. Great vibe.
Hostel could not be in a better location. Good breakfast option, fantastic communal kitchen. Supermarket 2 minute walk away. I stayed in a 14 bed dormitory but beds are divided up and in sections meaning you actually have a lot more privacy than in some smaller dorms I've been in. Hostel offers free local walking tours. Laundry was 5 euros (not including drying) which is super expensive in my opinion, but at least there's space to dry clothes in the room to save money with drying.
