We stayed in City Hostel for one night in February 2014 and I can say it was one of the worst places I ever stayed before. There are not so many hotels in Leuven and we were choosing between City hostel and private apartments (it was the same price if you stay in the entire apartment alone or in double... More

We stayed for one night in this hostel. The staff was very kind, we did not encounter a mean owner like many of the reviews state. The hostel is VERY clean and the electronic door system is very easy to use. The beds and rooms are fine, just the hallways echo and the bathroom doors make a lot of noise.... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this hostel. It is very cozy and quiet, unlike many other hostels. It is not allowed to play loud music, or talk in 'wild animal' voices, which adds to its homely feel. You get free coffee or tea the entire day, and there is a little garden where you can relax. If you are in... More

Leuven City Hostel is a very clean and safe hostel in a great location. Only problem is the staff. They are very rude, almost like they don't like travelers (go figure!) or just couldn't be bothered. Had to wait for receptionist to finish gossiping on the phone before she would check me in. Then, when I would ask her or... More

Stayed here with 3 friends for a night. Te location is great, the place is clean and organized, the staff friendly. The breakfast was satisfying and is included in the price. Not the cheapest hostel I have ever been to, but well worth it.

I was there for just two days, but we had a good time, it was clean and the staff was helpful. The kitchen is do it yourself service so you have different choices for breakfast. We also had a mirror and a small sink in our room which is a plus !

Good location and not a bad price, the double room was small and simple but clean and the bed was good. However; the entry code didn't work and the breakfast was completely non-existent; just a loaf of bread in a cupboard and some jam. Nothing else; no fruit juice notably, and a pretty tasteless coffee machine. An extra few pounds... More

I booked a single room here for an academic conference in December 2013. This hostel was a quick walk (about 15 minutes) from the railway station, where I first arrived, but also within quick walking distance of the centre of the city (e.g. about 15 minutes from the Oude Markt, etc. and less than 5 minutes from the big square...

We were a group of 5 people and we stayed there for 3 nights. Rooms were very nice and everything was so new. The kitchen and the living room were lovely to relax after a long day walking. The owners helped us to decide what to visit and with train timetables. Breakfast was quiet good, with fresh bread, butter and... More

I was completely satisfied with the place. We stayed here with a group of 20 people as a folk high school group. Everything was fine. No problems at all. Clean and tidy place. Place in a frequented area.
