sleep in Ghent
You can stay in our communal sleeping place or in a hostel only for Folk Marathon participants. Unfortunately both are already fully booked. And there is a long waiting list for the hostel and communal sleeping place, so we’re trying to find extra sleeping places with hosts. In case you want to apply for or offer a sleeping place as a host, let us know.
Be aware that places are limited and will only be reserved when we receive your advance payment!
In case you cancel your reservation before 22th December, you can get a refund.
Or you can of course organise your own accommodation! We can recommend these low budget places to stay in Ghent.
