tram 1 (Flanders Expo - Wondelgem / Evergem) brings you from the Sint Pieters station to approximately 200 meters from the hostel (stop 'Witte Kaproenenplein'). Cross the street and tram tracks and follow a little street between the appartments (Aloïs Joosstraat). This brings you to the canal where you'll find us! The boat is moored in front of the Honda car dealer.
Tram 4 (Gent Sint-Pieters - Moscou) brings you from the Saint Pieters station to approximately 300 meters from the hostel (stop 'Brugse Poort'). Cross the tram tracks and the street, and walk straight ahead (a street called Noordstraat). You end up at a bridge (Phoenixbrug): just before the bridge you walk to your right side, along the water. This is the Bargiekaai!
Bus 3 (Gentbrugge - Mariakerke post) brings you from the Dampoort station, through the centre to approximately 300 meters from the hostel. Get off the bus at the stop 'Brugse Poort', just before the crossroad. Cross the latter and the tram tracks, and walk straight (Noordstraat). Just before the bride (Phoenixbrug) turn right, and follow the water. This is the Bargiekaai.
A nice alternative to public transport is the bicycle. On various places in Ghent bicycles can be rented for short periods: the Steendam (Biker), the Maria Hendrika Square (near the station) and the Lange Violetstraat (De Ligfiets).
