One of the best hostels I've had the pleasure of staying in yet. Would undoubtedly recommend!

Not exactly in the city center but close to grocery stores, eating places, and little pubs. However someone did say this is in the trendy district. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The light in the shower didn't work at all during my stay, a minor inconvenience.
HomePlanet has two buildings - they are quite far away from the city centre. There are trams which still run despite some pretty big road works in the area of town so it's easy enough to get around. But the location is not great if you are looking to be within walking distance of the town, shops and a big choice of restaurants or bars. The city centre is quite nice, while the area is very run down - and the hostel could have been cleaner. The staff did recommend a great restaurant - Zest.
It was a surprise that our private room was not at the Hostel's address, but at an annex, some meters (100 or more) ahead. Room is clean, bathroom and kitchen too. We were quite busy in Leipzig, so I cannot talk about how convenient the place is for partying and stuff. Good Hostel, I'd come back.
Staff were great. Helped me in various situations, even made me feel better about failing my degree :D
I had a very nice stay. The hostel is quite conveniently located (Connewitz), with good connections to the city via tram and/or bus. Various clubs ("Zoro") and restaurants nearby. Nice and insightful patron.
