SCHOOLS (primary, secondary, and higher education)

Ghent is undoubtedly the place to be! Backstay Hostel Gent is an absolutely ideal base for (city) classes and visitors to explore Ghent and its surrounds.

School groups can count on personalised treatment, a quotation with attractive discounts, and their own group rooms (with communal bathroom). The price invariably includes our widely acclaimed buffet breakfast, city tax, and bed sheets.

Depending on the size of the group, we can also provide lunch and/or an evening meal. Since we are used to welcoming groups, we are only too pleased to advise you of the activities and facilities which both Backstay Hostel and our magnificent city have to offer.
