Excellent hostel, nice location, very clean, wide rooms. Would surely stay there again!
No guest kitchen, but breakfast was good value. Very clean in a cool old building. Security was excellent. Lockers were big, but had a shelf dividing them so you couldnt put backpack in it. Staff was good, it wasnt very busy when I was there, but seems to have ok atmosphere. Internet terminal was free! Horray! Location was excellent. Overall, VERY nice hostel. Would stay again.
Room was noisy, facing a majoy intersection. Kitchen does not have cooking facilities. Breakfast was poor for the price, especally when similar breakfast options are free at other hostels. Lacked common areas to meet people. Tacky flower painting on the walls.
Pretty good hostel, stayed there a few nights. Wifi is not available in the rooms or it gets there but it's really bad and they don't have enough plugs for all of us in the room. Beds are nice and so are the bathrooms, really clean. There's lockers to put your stuff in. Staff is friendly and breakfast is really good. In conclusion, good hostel and I would come back.
I stayed in this hostel for one night in a four bed room and it was very spacious and clean. There were lockers for your bags/ personal belongings in the room, a big bathroom and the hostel is located very central. Therefore, you hear all the cars and trams passing by, also during the night, but it was not to bad for me personally. The staff was very friendly and the offered breakfast buffet was alright, as well. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Pretty much perfect. You really wouldn't expect to find a such a hostel in Europe for that price. Even if you add the extra charges, you're still way under from what you should have paid.
Great hostel, good staff, nice garden to stay with a beer. Really appreciate the place.
A great stay at a very nice hostel. Large, quiet room at a good price. Very close to the centre and Hauptbahnhof of Leipzig. Breakfast was cheap, too! You do have to pay for bed linen separately (about £2.50, I think) but it still ends up great value.
A pleasant hostel on a busy street but with friendly staff, clean bathrooms and a small kitchen for the budget conscious. Short walk to old town and train station. However, being tired( and a bit stupid perhaps) I could not find the hostel from their vague directions. When you get off at tram stop it is on the opposite side of road to Mediamarkt building and way up the road heading away from the Hbf. High up on building it says HOSTEL but Sleepy Lion sign in side street is tiny. Good luck.
Overall, very nice hostel. Only drawback: Rooms to the street loud with open windows and incredibly hot during the summer with closed windows. Bring earplugs.
The Hostel itself is ok, but lacks of an area where to meet people, so unless you don't meet people in your room it will be hard to socialize.
It is a decent hostel, but the addition of lockers would be nice. It is located relatively close to the center, so everything is within walking distance.
All great from the hostel front, just a bit dead in terms of people there when I went.
Stayed there 1 night. Very good hostel. Very clean, good facilities, good internet. The location is good as well, only like 10min away from the train station.
Great service, the only small complaint would be to police the use of the internet as you have only one computer...maybe a simple fix would be a courtesy sign posted above suggesting guest limit their use to 30 minutes at a time...as for staff, all were cheerful and helpful...not sure if it was staff or guests though, but some people were out smoking in a small courtyard (below room 113) quite late and on a warm night with the window the smell was awful for non smokers...

Great stay in a great Hostel with pretty good breakfast, very good beds and perfectly situated in a very good area in Leipzig. I will surely choose again this hostel if I come again to Leipzig.
