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.

    Great place. Total value for money. They have a cool common area to hang out with books, TV and other stuff. The rooms are nice too. The staff service was outstanding, they were very warm and friendly. You can ask about the local places, great recommendations from the reception. Definitely worth visiting !

    Stayed here on our first night in Belgium what a lovely place wish o had of stayed longer. Staff were fantastic and informed us of what was going on in the country due to corona virus, gave us chance to modify our trip. Would definitely stop again. Only thing I didn’t know was that to use the locker for your valuables you need a padlock.

    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.

    Not a 10 min walk from the train station as described. It’s a solid 20, especially if you have luggage. The people in my room were nice, but no one really hangs out in the common area and if they do it’s pre-established groups or individuals working independently. Not a great place to meet people. Surrounding area is pretty expensive food-wise. There are signs posted EVERYWHERE to not take coffee or use the kitchen after check-out, which I thought was a bit stingy & excessive. Kitchen was solid

    The place was lovley and the staff helpful. But when i was booking the order there was some kind of error and it was booked twice. So i had 2 beds under my name and was charged for both. I spoke to the staff memeber when entering and he didnt inform me. So i stayed the night amd wasnt informed that id payed twice. It put a dapmner on what was otherwise a professional situation. I felt slightly robbed and that it was done in a snaeky way.

    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.

    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.

    The staff treated me like I was a burden. I was covered in mosquito bites when I woke up on the very top floor which was like a furnace. I was greeted with a ‘this is how we do it here’ instructions on the bedroom wall. Not very welcoming. The location was good.
