Hostels in Leuven for Backpackers and Solo Travellers
Leuven is a city east of Brussels, Belgium, known for its breweries. On a central square is the 15th-century town hall, with its tall spires. The building is decorated with hundreds of statues of local figures, biblical characters, and saints. Opposite, the late Gothic St. Peter's Church houses a "Last Supper" by the Flemish Primitive painter Dieric Bouts. Nearby, Oude Markt is a long square lined with bars and cafes. Lively Leuven is an ancient capital, a prominent brewing center, and Flanders' oldest university town. In term time, and even during holidays, some 25,000 students give the city an upbeat, creative air. The picturesque core is small enough that you could easily see the sights in a short day trip, but characterful pubs and good-value dining could keep you here for weeks. Leuven is a charming getaway with plenty to offer and these hostels provide an excellent base for exploring the area.
