This hostel was by far, the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar was cheap and very good food. The location was perfect (difficult to find at first). The atmosphere was very lively and with a real travellers vibe. I would definately recommend this hostel!!
Great hostel to meet other travellers, bar/cafe is always busy and sociable. Staff are OK, no different to any other Chinese hostel in terms of attitude towards customer service.
Excellent hostel to stay in with a great social atmosphere so easy to meet people. The room door never really got locked but i just made sure all my valuable were in the locker provided. Finally, they have a movie room with every film imaginable so great to relax in after a long day of sightseeing!

Fácil de encontrar, cerca de un metro, lo que es extremadamente útil. Además esta ubicado en medio de un área de hutons muy pintoresca, bueno para salir a caminar, cerca de una oficina para comprar pasajes de tren. El personal habla inglés muy bien. Lo único malo es que en la zona de bar/restaurant ponen todo el tiempo la misma música y no se puede comer comida de otro lugar, sólo comprar ahí
Overall very happy with the Hostel, couldn't want more socially especially for a lone traveler. GREAT bar area that is the center of activity through the day and night meaning i could make a new group of friends whenever needed. Staff could have been a tad more friendly when checking in, asking without a smile or greeting whether or not i had a reservation (this place books out quick) but the pool table and darts board were great for concluding a long day exploring the Hutongs (alleys) close by
We were a group of 11 and had a nice time at this busy hostel. Some rooms are bigger than others, and beds are hard, but it's just fine. Facilities are ok and the staff is very nice and helpful. It's in an unbeatable area of central Beijing! Overall, a good choice!
Is an excellent option in Beijing, close to the Tiananmen square and main sights. The bathrooms are few for the dormitories, so sometimes you have to wait for taking a shower. The bar is pretty good to chill out and refresh with some beers. The tours to the great wall are highly recommended to book them with the hostel to avoid multitudes and touristic traps. Recommended Hostel in Beijing, clean and with good atmosphere.
Not very cheap but a great location to stay in Beijing right by forbidden city. Food was ok however it was a little frustrating when numerous things on menu weren't available. Rooms need some upkeep as the double room wasnt very clean. Also I recommend training the staff to talk in lower voices as they were extremely loud right outside my room at 6am every morning.
It was useful that they had a scale to weigh my luggage. They were also helpful when my bedsheets still needed to be changed quite late in the evening and with questions about the locker.
Great hostel! Travelling alone, this was a great place to meet people and join them. Private bedroom was somewhat dirty, with dripping water from the AC causing a bit of mold, but other than that, the hostel was great. The tours from the hostel, especially the Secret Wall tour were a definite highlight and would do it again.
When we left the hotel in the night, we saw a rat in the lobby. The room is too expensive for what it is.

Really really enjoyed my stay at Leo hostel, a perfect environment to meet new people in the best location
Great hostel, really good bar and the great wall tour was excellent.
This would be a fine hostel if it wasnt for a few key things: security and cleanliness. Dorm doors are never locked so people can walk in and out as they please. This is more to do with the guests than the hostel, I was not happy coming back in everyday to an unlocked door. Secondly, not enough toilets and showers and they were absolutely disgusting, always. Again it's down to the guests who clearly don't know how to live in a communal way, but that means the hostel should step up the cleaning.
When I booked my 12 bed dorm room they moved me into a 14 bed dorm room and when I asked why they told me it's the same room it's just one more bed in there. Into the room everybody could enter without using a key. The facilities had no door to close so everybody could watch you brushing your teeth. One shower had a door, the other one only a curtain. Both were hairy and dirty. Same as the toilets. Western toilets but dirty. The staff didn't clean well. And my bed felt like it would fall apart.
I love this place. But i thought bath room is pretty dirty staff should clean up sometime in bathroom shloud have ventilators for flowing hot air whlie shower but also overall i love Leo hostel :)
Leo Hostel is still a great, cheap, option for Beijing. This time I stayed in a private room (off of the main courtyard), and it was comfortable and reasonably priced with a good shower. The bar is always a good atmosphere :)
I've stayed here multiple times, and it is definitely my favorite hostel in Beijing. The management truly understands the wants and needs of international guests. However, this time I found that many of the things offered in writing at the bar were not actually available--the beer tower was broken, the drink specials advertised over the bar were no longer available, and coffee could only be served during the morning on some days. Please update your signs!
The staff was very friendly. I very much felt welcomed by everyone. The cafe was very convenient and with the dorms, you definitely get a good value for your money. I'd recommend the hostel!
