“Every traveller is a friend”…
Our aim is a personal approach to every traveller. We strive to avoid a chilly corporate operation. Our ultimate dream is to be a high-profile hostel with an international appeal…
Until the eighties the building was used as the editorial office of the newspaper “Vooruit”. After the ending of the activities of newspaper “Vooruit”, the building was transformed into a cultural centre, named ‘Backstage’. Most people remember the building under that name until now.
