It's very near hauptbahnhof, which is very convenience. However the shower room for man on first floor is quite "open". And do hope they have fixed the pipes in the kitchen.

everything smooth!

We just stayed for an evening. It was a nice and clean hostel. And they allowed for payment with my Visa card which is always a plus. They could have better pillows . . . That is our biggest complaint. Otherwise, the wifi was fast, and the room was a welcome respite from our tiresome traveling.

Only stayed there for a night so can't say much but the situation is definitely great, next to the train station / bus terminal and the city center. Dorm, bathroom, kitchen, public area were good! It turned out you can bring your own bed sheets in case anyone wants to save those 2,50 € to lend theirs. Everything was okay!

Pro:The warm and homey atmosphere, very-friendly staff, and welcoming common areas on ground floor. The dorm room (6 bed for me) was clean and the mattress average/acceptable. Con: No in-room lockers big enough for packs and the gang-style, single-sex showers were OK but needed a cleaning (my floor's WC/shower was not cleaned for the 48 hrs I was there - prob for longer). The location was good but for the trains crossing in front - they kept me awake, but I'm a light sleeper - just be aware.

Thank you for your review! It is absolutely impossible that a shower was not cleaned for 48 hours - those are cleaned daily. Sometimes it might look different: we are cleaning from 11 -after check out- but staying people take a shower just after that so it looks "used" again - but we can assure that there is never 1 day without cleaning ;)

Very nice hostel, extremely central, clean and cozy, frindly and helpful staff. Some people wrote that it is loud: yes there is a tram - but in the middle of the city one should not expect silence...i recommend.

+ Good value for the money. Everything was O.K. for one-night's crash out. Centrally located, clean, nice guest kitchen, a spacious room. Hot showers with good pressure. - In the 10-bed room, there were sockets only by the door. Bedside lights would also help in such a big room: at night everybody who comes or goes switches on/off the main light. No shelves, very few chairs: mostly, you have to put your stuff on the floor.

Too loud, next time only without a fair.

you gave us one of the worst ratings we ever received - complaining that it was to loud and that there was a fair? ratings on such platforms should be "objective" of course also with complaints - but this is just sad. we wrote a mail to you to aks what made your stay so horrible - no reply. just very poor :((

My concerns are about the security and noise: -Anyone could enter the hostel and tell that would pick the lugagge up, without being asked for ID or anything else. -Excellent location, the only problem is the noise of the Strassenbahnen.

Good location, staffs and facilities

The Globertrotter was great...the location was excellent and even though the room faced the street any noise from streetcars was not a problem. The kitchen was very good...clean and well organized. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The entire buzz around Leipzig is very attractive...it´s a great place to visit.

Leipzig was a great city! This hostel was close to the main train station but a bit out of the city centre. Clean facilities and helpful staff. Some downsides: no lockers in the rooms and the showers were not a pleasant experience. But pretty good hostel overall.

thank you very much for your sad feedback. our breakfast is optional - and for 3.90 euro an all-you-can-eat incl tea/coffee/juice might be overpriced in your home country - in leipzig you would get 2 cups of coffee for that price somewhere in the city. to rate our security, facilities and atmosphere so bad because of breakfast is very sad to see.

The location is very convenient -- or should I say Leipzig is really small so everywhere is within walking distance? One reservation I have, though, is the showers and lights. Each time you push the button (yes you have to push the button for shower, too!) the shower/light only turns on for very (VERY) short period of time. Also, shower cells were only divided by thin, semi-transparent plastic (?) curtains, and no shielded place for changing. It would be quite awkward to have others around.
