It took about 10 minutes from Leipzig to the hostel ! I think if you have big bag , you should use tram. Except for it, this hostel was very good!! Breakfast was good (I am Japanese, So if you are Japanese or Asian, you can eat it !).


The kitchen was a kettle and a microwave, but the dorms were very clean, and it was an enjoyable stay.


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.
