About Ecohostel Andromeda

We know a hostel can make a big difference while traveling, 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 will like Ghent as much as we do!!

The hostel is located on a boat on a quiet canal just outside town, in walking distance of the historic centre. It is not everyday you can be a pirate, you might as well go for it! And do not forget that land was created to provide a place for boats to visit.

If this is not enough to come here's some more!

Low impact: 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 is CO2 neutral. The breakfast is vegetarian, organic and fair trade; and we have some excellent organic beers, wine, lemonade and juices on offer, which you can drink on the - if you are lucky- sunny deck! But don't let the fact that we're ecological scare you, you do not compromise any comfort, on the contrary! The showers are huge and warm, the beds are big and soft, and hey, you are on a boat!

We don't accept group bookings (maximum number of guests is 4), and reserve the right to cancel group bookings, even if made through separate reservations

Low budget: we have double rooms as well as beds in dorms of different sizes, with prices starting from 22 , breakfast, linen and taxes included. And the enchanting, lively city of Ghent, advised as one of the top 10 destinations of 2011 by Lonely Planet, is included in the price! Life is pretty good in Ghent, why wouldn't it be? Come and check it out.

No lockout or curfew, but we ask to respect the check-in time (2 until 8 pm); in case of later or earlier arrival please warn us in advance by mail or phone!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I really like this eco-friendly hostel. The room, toilet, common room and bathroom are all very clean and nicely decorated. The bathrooms are spacey. The environment is nice and peaceful. Gent is a nice and small town and staying at Andromeda just made my trip more enjoyable. I love it!! I will definitely go back and stay there if I visit Gent again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Really friendly environment, clean, reasonably priced and close to the center. Only problem was the ventilation in the room, especially because it was a warm evening and there was no air circulation or even a fan. But on the whole a really nice place for a weekend and a really friendly and hospitable hostess. I would recommend it.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Arrived at 11pm after getting taxi from station. A very friendly welcome. there are 3, 6 bed dorms, the beds are very cosy and plenty of room for all your stuff. also chairs and table in room. Was asked if I would like breakfast next morning and at what time. Breakfast was lovely selection of fresh rolls and ham and cheese. plenty of coffee. in the guest book I wrote "who wants to stay in a 5star hotel when you can stay in a 5star hostel" When I go to Ghent again will be staying at the Andromeda. I was surprised at all the over 40s that stayed. the barge was very quiet and no rowdies. A great idea they had was to have chalk in the loos so could write message on door (eco friendly) I stayed 5 nights before went on to Brussels would have stayed longer if possible. Good luck to them, it took 2 years of hard work to get the barge up and running.
