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.

Can't really go wrong, good location, nice little bar area, easy to meet people and a pool table... Can't ask for much more

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.

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!

I am backpacking in different countries and stayed in a dorm-room at leo hostel. You get what you pay for here. I mean some of the staff try to help you but they are not as service minded that they said on there website. I did the wall tour but was a bit disappointed, the place good and not so crowded but the guide was really bad he just told us the name of the wall-part... And the lunch we got was cold. But i general it is cheap hostel with good location and thats nice.

Goed hostel. Prima ligging. En hele aardige mensen. Enige minpunten; bed in verhouding met andere hostels erg hard, douche iets vies en oud. Maar ik vond het een erg gezellig hostel. Dus ik zou er zeker terug gaan!

Washrooms and toilets quite far from room but very quiet at back of hostel. Wifi signal best in bar area.

The staff at Leo's were amazing especially Benny who helped me purchase some GoPro items online as I'd left my stick on the train!!! He was fantastic and I was able to get everything I needed in a moment of crisis. Nobody stocked the items anywhere in Beijing and I couldn't buy online due to my western card. He took care of everything my items arrived 2 days later. A complete star and he went beyond expectations. Completely recommend Leo's wall tour too, it was away from the crowds and amazing!!

The hostel is in great location. It has a very nice bar and restaurant with great food at very reasonable prices. Mattress were very thin and made uncomfortable to sleep. Totally awesome the secret greatWall tour offered by the hostel.

I wish there were more bathrooms. There was a total of 4 toilets and 4 showers for everyone who did not not a private room, which really isn't much. The upstairs bathroom also smelled bad constantly. But the location is excellent, the staff is nice, and the downstairs bar/restaurant area was cool. I just wish they wouldn't let people smoke inside. In America indoor smoking has been banned for many years, and even though this is China, non-smokers should not have to inhale smokers' poison.

Hello, thank you for your comments. There are 6 toilets and showers (including front and back). Following guests suggestions, we have added incense to the toilets and they smell much better now. We have added a no smoking area to one-side of our restaurant/bar with signs on every table. Thank you for staying with us - we look forward to seeing you next time :) Regards, LH

The staff was very helpful with good English. There was some confusion around a discount for pizza (different staff members had different ideas about how it would work). We did the Great Wall Tour which I highly recommend. National Holiday Week and there were almost no other people there! De Yuan Roast Duck Restaurant is 2 seconds away and AMAZING. Good hostel vibe and super location. The bathrooms, as usual in China, smelled terrible. Incense or something really would make a huge difference.

Hello, thank you for your comments. Right now, we have a special offer - book 2 tours and get half price pizza - sorry you spoke to a new member of staff! You are right, our Great Wall is a great experience if you want to be alone at the Wall - very few tourists even in the middle of a national holiday! Also, we have the best price/quality roast duck restaurant just down the street. We are happy you liked our vibe and location. Following your suggestion, we have incense to the public toilets!
