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.

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.
We were three persons staying for a night. We booked a 3-bed room, and they gave us a 4-bed room, so we had enough space. The room was small (with two bunk beds), but nice and clean. The facilities were big and clean. The owner and his staff were all very kind and helpful. The breakfast was basic, but good. There is a kitchen, living room and barbecue area. The Hostel itself is right at the main station, and about 15 minutes from the city center by foot. Parking is possible at the main station.
Helpful staff and relaxed atmosphere and very near the station. Definitely use the free earplugs provided if you visit because the rooms on the main road are quite loud.
although we booked for 8 bed mixed dorm, we were given 6 bed mixed dorm upon arrival, sounds like an upgrade. Showers separated by curtains don't seem to be like a norm to many maybe? would be great if this can be improved. Annoying shower tap that has to be pressed every 5 seconds to keep the water running. But, friendly and helpful staff!
