Can't praise staff enough, very helpful! Rooms were clean and warm. Bar downstairs is good, but no kitchen facilities although there is got water to make tea etc! Enjoyed staying here fantastic location very close to main sights and easy access to subway!

The hostel was clean and the staff were very accommodating but the room was so cold on the first night and none of the night staff could fix it. They took care of it the next day which was fine. Also the location is walking distance to the square and the forbidden city.

We enjoyed our stay at the Leo Hostel and the kindness of the staff. The location in the middle of the city is excellent for visiting all the interesting places

Mattresses should be improved, too thin. Anyway completely recommendable, big dorms, clean, great movie room, nice staff and really good location.

On a busy street near a tourist spot. A bit of a walk to the closest metro. The heat was out because they were replacing the radiators while we were there in November and the wifi only worked in the lobby and bar. So to appease us they gave us extra blankets to fight off the cold. The only thing that made the stay pleasant was the accommodating staff. One guy at the desk up front that spoke English fairly well, helped with restaurant recommendations and pointing us in the right directions.

This seemed like a nice hostel but unfortunately when we werw there the heating was broken. It was so cold we both ended up with the flu! Staff were nice to us and gave us extra duvet blankets at no charge.

I stayed for a couple of nights in early November -- liked it a lot. Toilets were a *little* bit smelly, and the music in the bar was too loud (but you can't hear it in the rooms, at least not the ones upstairs, where I was staying). Overall, I liked it, and the location was exactly what i had been hoping for.

We've enjoyed our stay, BUT we killed a bunch of bugs which were running around in our room (even in beds), water in the shower was hot, but the low pressure made washing hair really tricky, upon the arrival there was no record of our reservation, even though I had my confirmation with me. Gladly, hostel managed to organise a spare room. We've been to a lot of hostels in China so far and somehow this one lacks laid back backpacking atmosphere. Hostel's trip to the Great Wall highly recommended!

Toilets and showers need some work. Hot water barely works.

Nice bar/restaurant and situated in a busy pedestrian street close to cafes and stores. I also enjoyed the Great Wall tour.

the hostel is beautifully decorated, the restaurant is very cosy. but they definitely need to do something about the smell in the bath rooms and they should also build/make more bath rooms cos there´s a long wait in the morning to shower.

There were COCKROACHES in our room, plus RATS were running on the ceiling panels above our heads at night waking us up! Place for those who want to have fun rather than rest, as it's still full of noisy and drunk people at night, throughout the week. CHINESE PEOPLE USE THIS PLACE AS HOME AND LIVE HERE, which means there is lots of tension, esp. with foreigners, over the cleanness, noise and use of space (cockroaches were feeding on food a Chinese family was keeping in the room). Don;t recommmend

Great atmosphere, close to Tiansnmen a Square and the forbidden city. Kind of a party hostel but the noise from downstairs does not seem to impact the rooms. I would definitely stay here again.

I would stay here again. Even tough it was busy the hostel never felt crowded. Clean facilities with lockers in the rooms. Wifi didn't work for me the first night but it did the rest of the time. It is only in the common areas though. I loved the location! Great wall tour was also good.

Had a great stay at Leo's Hostel. The staff were friendly when you needed it and the facilities were fairly clean. Great location, right near majority of sightseeing locations and the Leo's Secret Great Wall Tour is a must see. Overall, very happy with my stay at Leo's Hostel!

Front staff are not that friendly or helpful. Sewer smell in the room was overpowering. Wifi was down most of the time.
