An excellent hostel situated most conveniently within a couple of hundred yards of the Central Train Station: so no taxis or problems finding it on arrival at whatever hour. An excellent price, warm and with roomy dormitories with comfortable beds.

Thanks - that sounds like you enjoyed your stay and we are very happy about that! Happy travels!


Stayed during the off season so it was quiet. Great for a night and super friendly staff.


Good location near the train station. Good breakfast.


전체적으로 나쁘지않았지만 침대시트값을 1박당 2.5유로 따로지불해야하며.. 건물자체가 오래된 나무 건물이라서 냄새가 최악이었어요

hello unfortunately we do not understand your writing - but we are sorry that your stay was obviously not like expected. we see that we gave you a free uogarde and that no complaints were told here?!?!? thats sad - caus if you tell us what we could do better it would help....


Excellent hostel with pleasant garden and friendly staff. You will need a medium diameter padlock for the lockers which are outside the dorms. Wifi awkward to use particularly for a long stay (new username and password required each day) but bandwidth not a problem, the ash trays (upturned flower-pots in the garden) could be emptied more frequently and a freezer would be nice to have. I would definitely stay there again.


The location is perfect for those who's stopping by Leipzig for a night or two. Really close to the station. The staff was friendly and helpful. Pleasant stay and the hostel was clean. Loved the backyard, really nice place to chill.


A bit noisy when the room faces the street where the tram runs very often. Nice staff, clean rooms.


Got surprised by the extra charge for linens and got a bad taste after that. Hostel is decent for a one night stay since it's a 5 min walk from the trains, but I wasn't keen to spend longer.


The only problem I had is with the shower curtains. They're clear. In a public shower. Yes, the water goes off every 7 seconds too, but that's Europe and very easy to deal with. Great atmosphere, staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and we had an all-around great stay in Leipzig.


Good hostel

very cool staff, good location and excellent value of money. I wished if each bed has its own plug socket instead of having one extension next to the room's door. I enjoyed staying in the hostel, very recommended.
