Leuven has a lot to offer. During your stay there you have to see Gothic City Hall and historic centre, beautiful botanical garden and Groot Begijnhof (Grand Beguinage), a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are also many flea markets and a beer factory to visit.
What travellers think
When I went back to pick up luggage I left in the secure luggage room, I was told to just go in, as it was still unlocked. Not exactly a secure room, then... I also expected - from experience in quite a few other hostels - that the linen package would have included a towel. Not so, which was a mild inconvenience.
