Property Description

KaBa Hostel offers precisely that what a budget tourist is looking for...

A cosy atmosphere in the green garden, arty lounge or wooden dinner room. Pleasant comfort in the dorms or private rooms, in the fully equipped kitchen or at the internet bar.

A location within walking distance from the historical centre but just outside of the busiest city area. And two very nice hosts at the reception desk who you can always ask anything.

KaBa Hostel is raised and loved by Bart and Katrijn, both of them fully experienced in the art of budget travelling and looking for the nicest spots to sleep at in the world.

    Such a great stay at KABA- the hostel is located a short walk from the central city and has a welcoming and easy going atmosphere. The free coffee and tea was lovely. The rooms were warm, bedding cozy and accessible charging ports everywhere. Staff were kind and extremely helpful (I got locked out of my bank account and they let me use the hostel phone and offered assistance). Overall enjoyable experience :)

    Artsy hostel, great kitchen, toilets/bathrooms were nice. Dorm room was a generous size. Staff were really friendly. Not super central, but Ghent is so small anyway, it’s only a 15 min walk to town, and conveniently also about 15 min to Ghent Dampoort Station/Flix Bus stop. Bunk bed was a liiittle flimsy but not a big deal.

    Fabulous

    This was a fun hostel located in the university area (student housing and class buildings are surrounding). Our only "complaint" was the many, many stairs it took to get to our 3 bed private room with shared bath; they are steep, spiral, and many (just be aware - we had no issues carrying our luggage all the way up to the top floor!). The facilities were all clean, fresh and well-maintained, and the staff were lovely and attentive.

    Very small hostel but only a 10 minute walk to the center. Very polite staff. Well-equipped kitchen. Situated right near the red light district which took me by surprise.

    Beautiful location and short walk from main attractions. Super thin walls and very old very loud floorboards so be prepared to hear next door, downstairs and upstairs whenever anyone moves around.

    Only stayed here for one night. Pretty good location, hostel was generally nice and clean and the breakfast was good in the morning. Overall it was a decent place to stay - not super social so probably better for groups. Only complaints are thin walls and bed bugs. Such a shame because it was nice apart from that but bed bugs are quite a significant downside. I don't think others in my room had them (or noticed them, anyway) so maybe I was just unlucky.

    This hostel’s location in Ghent is great but I’m very disappointed with cleanliness. I got severe reaction from bed bug bites all over my body, face, and arms. I asked the employee to move me to a different room and they did. And then i got more reactions than I had in a previous room. I wasn’t able to sleep through the nights. This hostel needs a lot of renovations. I’m currently suffering from the side effects of bed bug bites. This is not something i want to remember from Ghent.
