Welcome to The Cover, a new and charming hostel located in the historic centre of Ghent.

Situated on the site of the old and beautiful Vrijdagmarkt it makes the perfect starting point for exploring the historical culture and nightlife Ghent has to offer.

At walking distance from all beautiful squares, shopping streets and exquisite restaurants the city provides this is the hotspot in Ghent to be.

The hostel itself is part of multi-purpose bar The Cover which is well-known in, around and outside of Ghent because of it’s unique atmosphere, games, events, activities and much more…

Relax while having a great Belgian beer at the bar, enjoying one of the many bands and/or deejays performing in the evening or just admiring the amazing view from the terrace.

Don’t worry though, the hostel is separated from the bar so you can still relax in silence and charm if you please.

All our facilities (kitchen, six showers, washer and dryer, lockers, dining room, relaxation room, free Wi-Fi and many more) are available and free to use.
