Ship ahoy! Looking for a hostel that shows the spirit of Ghent? Somehow different, friendly, fun, but most of all relaxed?
After sailing the seven seas we dropped our anchors in the sparkling, enchanting city of Ghent. Life is pretty good in Ghent, why wouldn't it be? The city has balls, the people are charming and welcoming, and the boat is eco friendly and unique!
It's not everyday you can be a pirate, you might as well go for it! Don't forget that land was only created to provide a place for boats to moor... You'll find the boat on a lazy canal just outside the historic centre, quiet, lush and green.
So hopefully you'll love Ghent as much as we do!!
COVID 19 UPDATE After three long months we are happy to be back! It's been long enough!! It's going to be slightly different though for the near future... This summer you and your bubble (up to max 10 persons) can rent out the hostel for 360€ a night, and have the whole boat to yourself! In the price the tourist taxes (3€ pppn, from 18 years on) and breakfast are not included. And we like to see you for more than one night!! Sounds like fun no? Hope to see you soon!
double room: 68 € for two dorm six persons: 25 € per person dorm eight persons: 23 € per person
free maps (veggie Ghent, graffiti in Ghent, use-it Ghent)
tourist tax is included (3€ / night)
honesty fridge, with local and organic brews
small library en games in lounge
terrace, sometimes sunny!
enchanting and lively city of Ghent is included in the price!!
The hostel is a converted barge, with a water purification on top of the roof, you sleep on 100% natural mattresses in a low energy building that's CO2 neutral... The breakfast is veggie, organic and fair trade. We have some excellent organic beers, wine, lemonade and juices on offer, which you can drink on the - if you're lucky- sunny deck! Work like a captain, but most importantly, play like a captain!
But don't let the fact that we're 'eco' scare you, you don't compromise any comfort, on the contrary! The showers are huge and warm, the beds are big and soft, and hey... you're on a boat! Arrrrr
