The boat is super cozy, it feels like you&'re at home (and that you&'re lucky enough to have such a cool home). Mathieu was really helpful and available.

  Customer Review 

Bon Vivant was so cosy and cozy that I spent more time comforting on the boat than sightseeing in Ghent! Mathieu, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful. Sadly for me, they were booked out so I only stayed one night on this trip, but I&'ll be back next time I&'m in Ghent!

  Customer Review 

Great warm and friendly service. Really clean and cosy. Felt homely, would definitely stay again!

The host/captain/owner was really friendly, chatty, informative and helpful. There are some comments about it being hard to find. NOT TRUE, IT WAS EASY! Best boat encounter ever. Really charming. The photos do not do it justice.

This is not a hostel. It&'s a lot more like a guest house. Mateo, the property owner of the boat is such a gorgeous host. Extremely warm and friendly and helpful. It feels like we were some special guests. The bed was cozy except for the pillow. But the pillow is not a massive deal I guess. Location is a bit weird, but it&'s really close to the Markt. About 8minutes walk. The breakfast is definitely worth it. 7. 50 for cereal + bread + croissant + orange juice + fruits + yoghurt + boiled egg + milk. It&'s complete. One might argue it&'s a bit pricey but which is how cheap you can get here. Everywhere else is expensive. Definitely worth it.

I recommend you to take the breakfast. The owner is really helpful as nicely as the rooms are cosy.
