Interaction with Guests
As we live in the same house and share our amenities, we like having a chat with our guests.
The neighbourhood is calm, by time there can be students screaming down the street, just scream back.
Just around the corner you have a little grocery store and within 3 minutes walking distance you find many nice bars and restaurants.
In Leuven everything is possible by foot. But if you need a bus or train, it only takes you 2 to 9 minutes to get there.
We expect our guests to be kind, not to loud and child friendly. Just the basic rules of respect and FairPlay in life.
Jonas and I communicated well before my stay so arriving was an easy process. The room is on the third floor of a lovely house in Leuven. The house is a mix of old( wooden floors, high ceilings and charm) and new (modern kitchen and bathroom). The room was exactly as listed and as the photos depicted. Very spacious ,private and comfortable. Leuven is not large but Jonas' house is situated close to the main library square with restaurants and cafes and it is not far from the university or the main historical centre. I enjoyed my stay very much. Thank you Jonas and family!
Jonas is incredibly friendly and welcoming. I was away from the room quite a bit during this short trip because of work, but when I first met Jonas when arriving at the house he took the time to give a tour, show me the room, preempt any questions AND lend me his mac charger! The house is beautiful, and the room very comfortable, with great light and magisterially high ceilings. I thoroughly recommend this location to anyone who needs a quiet, chilled and easy-going place to stay while in Leuven.
The apartment is very beautiful. It is located about 10 minutes walk from the train station, 7 minutes from the university (at least to where I had to go) and about 15 minutes from the center of the city.
The room was very big and comfortable and so were the other facilities such as the bathroom and kitchen. Jonas and Inge were very nice and made me feel at home.
We were there for 8 days and we had exactly what we needed: a calm and spacious place to rest after a busy tiring day in Leuven. Jonas and Inge are pleasant hosts, who gave us nice tips about the city. All the descriptions for the house and the room are accurate. It's a clean and tidy place. The room is very big, bright, warm and with a comfortable bed. The rules of the house are easy and clear and Jonas took care to explain them upon our arrival. The house is well located inside the Ring: a 10 minutes walk to the station, a 10-15 minutes walk to the central square and with plenty of buses passing nearby if you want to go farther.
It was lovely getting to know Jonas and his family, and staying at his place. The room at Jonas’ is spacious, clean and has a very comfortable bed. Jonas was very kind in accepting my last-minute booking-request, and the kindness persisted throughout my stay. Over coffee, we had some interesting discussions too. I recommend his place without hesitation. Thanks for everything, Jonas, and hope to see you around in town! = )

About the Host, Jonas
I love traveling and when I do, I use airbnb very often myself. In fact, that's how I got in contact with the service which got me started as a host a little bit later.
