A top hostel! The location is great, within walking distance to Tiananmen Square and the metro station. Room was surprisingly spacious for a 14 bed one. Most importantly, the common/bar area was very sociable, and easy to meet new people. Would happily stay here again.

The staff were super helpful. The atmosphere was really lively and fun. The travelers I stayed with were all interesting people. The wifi was solid and the hostel makes a pretty good breakfast in good time if you have an early train to catch.

Stayed in the 14 bed dorm, not too crowded even with all the beds. Had two of the aircon/heater units which were thankfully on all the time. Appreciated it on the coldest day in 20 years! The staff were friendly and helpful, gave us a great map of the city. Mattresses were a little thin for 6 nights but you get what you pay for. Water wasn't always hot during the day, had more luck in the evenings. Would still recommend

Really clean, friendly hostel. Reception staff speak good English. Were very helpful translating for us, helping make phone calls, and arranging couriers etc. Showers and rooms were warm in the middle of winter. WiFi is decent but you may need a VPN. Would also recommend the cafe/restaurant a few doors down with the dumpling steamers out the front - top quality food for cheap! Only downside is the limited number of toilets but that wasn't an issue.

Great location, staff were average, atmosphere bit dull but possibly due to it being out of season and cold! Biggest downfall was the quality of the bed, we had a private room and the mattress was basically just painted concrete, and there was only one pancake pillow per person. The beds were so uncomfortable were lost a lot of sleep during our stay however very good location and food choice good for the price, so if youre one of those who could sleep on a washing line this is the place for you!

Nice place, staff in general is nice but a bit quiet. a lot of fellow travellers to hang out with. Good location. Food and drinks are a bit overpriced but you can get cheap good food outside of the hostel (just avoid the tourist traps)

Perfectly located hostel. Only 5 minutes from a main subway station, a short walk to Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden City, as well as food and shopping all along the street, this hostel is a backpackers dream. The staff all speak english and are incredibly helpful at directions. They provide a free lock to go with lockers found in the dorms for security, and the plugs we encountered were all universal. Only issue we had was lack of consistent connection to the internet.

The staff were lovely and the atmosphere was excellent. The rooms were basic but modern. On the downside, My wife had a large patch of mould on the wall right next to the head of the bed and there was a strong 'drain' smell coming from the bathroom. These could just be a one-off, though. But all in all, we recommend the Leo.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Leo Hostel. Our private room was rather cold, but perfectly fine with the AC on. That shouldn't be a minus point for the hostel though. China is generally cold in January. The common area was spacious and gave room to meet fellow travelours. Our bathroom was clean with toothbrushes, soup and fresh towels daily. The restaurant was cheap and the food was good. Location couldn't have been better, walking distance to Tiananmen Square, forbidden city and Mao Mausoleum

Very well located hostel, close to metro lines. I can recommend the tours operated by this hostel; the great wall tour was fantastic and great value for money. Showers hot with good pressure and beds comfy. It's a shame that you have to go outside to the showers and toilets though when it's the midst of winter but in Summer it would be fine! Very clean.
