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.

Beds were fairly comfortable. Plenty of toilets and bathrooms available, all very modern. Breakfast was only yoghurt and stale bread. Good wifi connection. Did not have secure place to leave bags, they just have to sit out in the open next to reception. The 1 night I stayed was pretty quiet.

I stayed here together with some friends to visit Leuven's nightlife. We were all very pleased by the accommodation and the breakfast. The girl at the reception was also very friendly and helpful. The only downside was that someone from our group had to cancel his stay last minute and we hadn't called the hostel in advance to let them... More

We staid with a group of girls in this hostel for 1 night. When we arrived, everything was nice. The accomodation, the rooms,.. etc. We were with a few girls so we wanted to eat all together at one table in the evening. We asked the girl of the reception if we could move the tables. She told us we... More
