      Mediocre at Best

      Wifi is very unreliable as are the showers and toilettes. Out of three showers adjacent to the 6-bed dorm in which I stayed, one had a broken shower head and another had a broken drain. There were three toilettes close to the room; however, only one worked. You will undoubtedly get precisely what you pay for in this case. As a pro: The lobby area, kitchen and garden area are clean and well-kept.

      Perfect location, lovely little hostel

      Stayed here for 1 night whilst attending a concert locally. Very clean, well decorated hostel with fantastic location. Leuven is a very pretty town, only 25 mins by train from Brussels. Hostel is a 10 minute walk from the train station and very easy to find. Nice, quiet hostel with cosy rooms and cute courtyard where you can sit out and enjoy the sun. The only minor complaint is that the room (3.1) could do with a fan as it gets very warm.

      • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

      No wifi signal in the room amd weak signal in open area. When enquired about it, they are complaining about iphones. So, as per them, whoever wants to stay there, should bring android phones. Dont expect a towel to be in the private room.
