nice hostel but not a lot of atmosphere, maybe the time of year. The room smelled pretty bad and was way too hot but other than not it was good. Good location, nice kitchen and decent bathrooms. Except the water in the shower turns off every ten seconds.

thank you for your comment! you are right - january is a very "low" month with not a lot of guests - so even for us on some days it feels a bit lonely that the room was very "hot" we like to hear - that means the heating is working ;) but responsible for turning it to the hottest are the guests in that 8-bedroom - and we would often be happy if they would just choose half that level! happy travels and best regards from leipzig!


It's a quite nice experience to stay at this hostel! It only cost 2 mins to walk to the main station and of course close to some famous point. The room and shower room are clean and the bed is very soft and comfortable. I slept very well. And the staffs are very friendly and always with smile:) They fixed the warmer as soon as we told them it doesn't work. The room I stayed is beside the street so can hear the sound of streetcars but it doesn't really noisy to me. Recommend!

Thank you very much for that warm comment! We hope you have nice travels!


Can't complain too much overall. :) You get what you pay for I guess. A few annoying things though... The showers were pretty dodgy with plastic shower curtains separating the cubicles, and there were no hooks right by the shower so you either risk getting your clothes wet or walking out naked infront of people. The wifi dropped in and out constantly which was pretty damn annoying when I was trying to find places to go. Location is very central, but noisy by the tram line.

thank you for your comment! we will have a look if it is possible to have hooks direct at the shower! and we are very sorry that the WiFi was not working well - it usually works very good :/ next time just use the free guest computer at reception if WiFi makes problems. happy travels!


There was nothing to complain about. Very good price. Very nice staff.

This hostel is amazing! There is friendly staff, good location and a good atmosphere! The only thing that was not excellent was the lack of knives in the kitchen. But everything was excellent ! If I went back to Leipzig then I would go back for sure!

thank you for that nice comment! pls let us know about the knives the next times, we always have enough left in our kitchen and probably forgot to fill up in the guest kitchen :/ hasta la proxima, alex & the Cg team
