everything is great 😆😆


Loved the Hostel and the Greatwall Tours ! Best one I have stayed at thus far!


The hostel is well localed, It is very near the subway, easy to access from the airport and close to the city centre. I recommand it !


Such a good location if you want to see the hutongs and main sights in Beijing.Good price,very helpful and polite staff.


The staff are helpful and the wide-range of food is all excellent. Leo is a very youthful hostel with a location close to Tiananmen Square and has a super helpful staff, especially Angus! They help with directions and are always friendly.The Peking Duck they recommended near the lovely hostel was really good!


Fantastic hostel, great staff who very very friendly and helpful. Great little bar, good atmosphere.The Ancient-secret Great Wall tour they offered is awesome , Would stay there again.


I had a very nice stay at the LEO hostel. This place is great, staff are kind and helpful, location is very convenient and the building is beautiful. If I were to stay at the place for the next time, I would definitely do. :)


The room is very warm.Thanks for the heating.I just stay here for two nights,but the staff help me a lot.The bar downstairs is a good place to meet people.And the Ancient Great wall tour is amazing!Just 4 of us on the wall. So Cool!highly recommend!

One of the best things about this hostel is how they genuinely listen to the comments. They're under new management as of Nov 2014 and they're trying really hard to get their ratings up. Only things: -Fix the Internet -Why is the upstairs shower ALWAYS cold?! -More bathrooms! -Bigger lockers!


Overally nice, just water in the shower could be warmer.


Too bad that people who stayed there at the same time as me were completely disrespectful, dirty, switched the lights on at 4 in the morning in the dorms and were speaking really loud everywhere including the dorm and all the time... Could have been great!


Really nice hostel, great location, warm and tidy rooms, great atmosphere. It could be a little bit to loud at night for some people and the water is not so warm in the bathroom but it's still a great value for money. It would be great if the restaurant on the bottom floor could offer some cheap fried rice or noodles with eggs and vegetables :)


Hot water in the showers practically non existent. The staff don't really comprehend English all that well. I tried to ask one of the cleaning staff about directions to a shopping area nearby in Mandarin and she fobbed me off. Saying to me when she didn't comprehend me when she clearly did. Despite there being no smoking signs everyone does so. Not really a place where you can get a good night's sleep. If you want to party all the time, choose Leo's. If you want to rest then go elsewhere.


I met some very interesting people here.


Great hostel at a great location, only downside is that you're not allowed to eat your own food downstairs at the seating area (because it's also a bar), so you have to eat your breakfast in your bed. You can order breakfast at the bar but it's a bit overpriced.


The hostel is a few minutes walk from the subway and Tiananmen Square. The staff was really friendly and helpful, they often answered our many questions about visiting attractions in Beijing. The showers were cold and did not have a curtain/door. Beds were big and comfortable.


There were no towels for dormitory, towels are only for private room. Two toilet and two shower room were there. Location is very good!!!! Subway station, qianmen street and tian an men square are located around the hostel. You can use free wifi everywhere in the hostel. A clerk can speak english well and room was warm thanks to heating. Next to hostel, super market is located. This hostel is nice to backpacker with limited budget.

Very good hostel.


The young Chinese lady on reception was extremely unhelpful and actually rather rude. I am American and have received very little assistance from her. She, seemed unwilling to help. Angus was very warm and extremely helpful.
