KaBa Hostel

We are a small, cosy, friendly hostel with a warm, authentic atmosphere, run by it's two owners (and their two little girls ;-)). We like to distinguish ourselves from the big party hostels through these caracteristics. The artwork from local artists, on the walls all over the hostel, make our place unique and colourfull.

some("\nThe kindness of Katrijn and Bart made everything easier, \nThe hostel is quiet ,well located ,chill and hosts backpackers , so as a cultural and learning experience was top! Don’t come over if you are willing to Party, Gent is not the place do if you want to learn about the flemish culture.This was my first experience and from now and on my expectations are way too high!\nI’d recommend it if you how working with hospitality its like , and also carry with some responsabilities on your own.\nThanks for making my first travel the best experience i’ve ever had!\nLove ! \n\n")

Wauw. KaBa Hostel is great as a traveler, even better as a Worldpacker. The location, the hostel (clean, artistic, great garden, good kitchen; it just feels like home), an amazing co-Worldpacker, the hours and the tasks (be ready for a sweating workout if you're there in summer ;) and of course the hosts! Bart and Katrijn are easy-going, talkative, relaxed and you are free to ask anything. From the first day, when everything is explained to you, you get the responsibility to do it yourself. The best way to learn is, is to do it! First Worldpackersexperience? Amazing, I would love to go back!

Bart and Katrijn are amazing people. They are kind, funny and energetic and always available to help and teach you. In Kaba Hostel you will have the privillege to manage the hostel almost by yourself when you are on your shifts and you will learn a lot. You will be envolved with all tasks from a day by day hostel routine. Totally recommend it! 👌

Katrijn and Bart are very correct people, kind and flexible, they are quiet people with good energy, the hostel is very quiet and cozy, the city is spectacular, I loved its university atmosphere and quiet, it is also close to meet other Cities that are very close by train as brussels, witches and antwerp, I recommend them.
