Staff wasn't really helpful or friendly, quite good location, though quite a bit off from the main action in Wellington. Atmosphere is almost non existent, except for a few people in the kitchen. 4 bed dorms are really good, 6 are much more packed.

Best hostel I've been in in Paris, cheap, very convenient location if you plan to get outside Paris, close neighborhood isn't the best though. Very well thought too, 2x power and 2x usb plugs in each bed, huge lockers under lower beds (half is for upper bed). Sometimes a bit unclear on directions to some rooms/places inside. Staff was nothing special.

Bad points : location, you can`t walk 1 minute in the street without someone begging for money. Showers and toilets have huge gaps around doors. The code to enter the rooms changes daily. but anyone can get it from the reception, same for luggage storage key. Good points: good staff, bar and events, clean.

Hello and thanks for the feedback. We are located in Vancouver's Entertainment District which is fantastic for bars, restaurants and clubs. Like all west coast cities, Vancouver does attract a large amount of street people, but they are all completely harmless. With our building we do not allow anyone in without a room key, so if we don't recognize them, we check keys and ID when needed. All of our bathrooms are undergoing renos this winter so that will help your concerns there. Safe travels!

Awesome guesthouse, nice location in a quiet place close to the train station, can walk to most touristic places from guesthouse, or take buses from train station a few minutes away. Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean place. Wifi doesn't always work in dorm, but no problem in common area.

Noisy place, lock everything, even bottles of water "disappears" when staff cleans rooms. Staff isn't really helpful. Clean place. Most dorms have a huge window towards the inside of the building, meaning you can see what happens in other dorms & in kitchen, and dorms get very bright anytime people turn any light on, and really early in the morning.

View Property Reply

Dear Romain , Your complain about your the bottle of water disappear in your room , there is few of people stay in your dorm that mean you have to look after it , our cleaner never took anything of our guest . about the window you said that you can look through to another dorm that not true . Please think and make sure thing before you complain . Kind Regards Have a good trip .

Good location, the staff was not particularly helpful. Needs some improvement on security, lockers don't really lock, and the storage room is basically a room where anyone can store and take anything (they ask you to put a sticker with your name on stuff you leave, but never check it on retrieval).

Very good location, next to tourist bus station. Best staff, always helpful, smiling and available (and cute!). About lower security rating: many lockers don't even require a key to open (broken locks, any key can open many lockers), and some concerns about water leaking close to power outlets

Overall good, location is good but not perfect (other hostels are much closer to city center and transportation). Overall quite clean, but some parts are definitely not cleaned often. More showers / toilets would be nice. Very good atmosphere in common areas. Wifi OK, working almost everywhere and usually not too slow (for a Chinese hostel). Staff was good, but some are not the most friendly, for example turning the lights off in common areas with people in it in evening without saying anything

Cleanest hostel I've seen in China. Perfect place, just a few meters from the beginning of the way to Taishan. Not everyone in the staff can speak English, so depending on the day and people there you might have to go through translators to get understoof by reception. English speaking staff was very helpful. To get there follow Hongmen road the way up, then turn left just before the pedestrian area. Even if the address is Hongmen Road, it's a bit further on a road going left from there.

Leo Hostel, Beijing, China

4th May 2014

One of the best hostels I've seen so far, except for the showers/toilets. Staff was awesome, many people in common area (which is a bar, people do not come only from Leo there) with always a good atmosphere there, and lots of beers. Location is perfect, right on the edge of both touristic and much less touristic areas. Only 2 things I didn't really like: lots of lockers have an almost non-functional lock (you can open them without key quite easily), and the showers & toilets that are not clean.

Hello. Thank you for your great comments! We are happy that you liked our socialable bar - we are also quite famous for our food. You need to attach a lock to the lockers(!). You can use your own lock or rent one from reception. See you next time! Regads, LH.

Best thing about this hostel is the staff, very nice and friendly. The hostel in itself is good, lockers would be nice. Many travelers and also a few Russian people, in a very nice atmosphere. Also recommend going to the eco-baikaler hostel in Listvyanka, very nice place.

A shadow of its past self. I loved it a few years ago, now it's filled with Russian people living in it, with no care at all about others, getting in dorm at 3am to start a movie with no headphones.. or making out. Not enough lockers, staff drinking, beds are incredibly uncomfortable, had marks all over my skin on morning. All rooms&kitchen are really messy. Shower/toilets are clean, not dorms. Dorm door handle falling, force people to register visa even when not needed, accept people with pets.

Hello! Thank you for your comment. I will make sure our night staff work even harder to keep the noice down after 11 pm. We have a café that is open during the night, where those who want to sit and chat after 11 wont disturb anyone, we just have to make sure to get people in there instead.. Kindly, Ellinor CBP
