8/10 Very good

I especially liked the position, how easy it was to reach any part of the city simply by walking around. The thing that troubled me the most would be the snoring roommates and some difficulty in finding the plugs to recharge my phone battery.

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.

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.

Great stay
Great stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially as I was delayed checking in; they ensured the key was available and communicated everything clearly. As I was leaving Leuven late in the evening they allowed me to store my bags until I needed to pick them up. Location is great however Leuven is a student city so outside can be a little noisy at night, but don't let that put you off the stay is comfortable, clean and cosy.
