In an excellent location in a quiet street right in the city centre, HI De Draecke Gent hostel is just 150m from the famous medieval Castle of the Counts.

Retaining an attractive period facade, it offers a high standard of accommodation with rooms all containing private bathrooms. Facilities include TV, Internet access (hotspot), bar and self-service restaurant. Guests have 24 hour access and there is no curfew.

The De Draecke Gent bar has a great choice of Belgian beers and will make the perfect starting point to discover this Artevelde city with 55,000 students. There is always something to do, with places like the S.M.A.K. museum (modern art), Het Design Museum, Gravensteen Castle, pubs, shops, restaurants, theatres or visit the Saint Bavo Cathedral with the world famous Lam Gods painting.

El lugar es feísimo, las habitaciones son como cuartos de cárcel, con una iluminación pobre y mala. A pesar de que pague por tener baño privado casi no lo ocupe, por que era un asco!! La limpieza dejaba mucho que decir en la ducha. La gente es amable, eso es lo único bueno. El wifi es tan malo, que no funciona nisiquiera en la sala de estar, la señal nisikiera llega a las habitaciones. Por el precio busca otro hostal, por que yo lamento mucho haber pasado 1 noche ahí. Caro y malo.
