daphneweym 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.
