Location

Hostel Uppelink’s location is without a doubt one of a kind. You will find the thirteenth-century building on the corner of the Korenlei and the St Michael’s Bridge, offering a unique view over the water. If you walk from the Korenmarkt up the St Michael’s Bridge, you will see the hostel at the other side of the bridge on your right.  

Due to its unique location, the rooms at the front of the building offer a brilliant view of the old port, of the former post office (now Post Plaza) at the Graslei and last but not least, of the iconic three towers of Ghent: St Nicholas’ Church, the Belfry and St Bavo’s Cathedral.
