Me and my friends stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved the vibe of the hostel. There were always people around downstairs in the restaurant/ bar area and it was easy to meet other travellers. The staff at the reception was friendly and helpful, and the room we had was big and clean. The only thing that I had...

We arrived at the hostel very late after a delayed flight from Guilin, but the 24 hour front desk made check in a breeze even at 4am. The room was roomy and clean, and the courtyard area with the rooms was beautiful. The hostel was within walking distance to the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Metro stations, restaurants and shops. The...

I stayed here for a few inconsecutive nights when in Beijing. It is clear that the hostel aims to cater for foreign travellers, and they do this very well. Everything is clean and there is a lot of information about Beijing. The staff also speak English.

you know some hostels, no atmosphere, not clean, terrible location, unsafe - well Leo is none of these. The staff and the diverse range of people make this one of the very best hostels I've stayed at anywhere. There's always people to talk to in the common room and find company for drinks or dinner or adventures. Every day. The...

Location is great. Staff are accommodating and friendly. Helpful, too! Rooms are ok for the price. Just a bit noisy sometimes. Overall good. Cozy in winter. Heater is working well and hot water is available. You just need to provide your own towels. But Recommended ☺️

We stayed at Leo hostel for 4 nights. The hostel located about 10 minutes walk from the forbidden city and the nearest train station. If you are looking for Beijing nightlife (Sanlitun), you will have to take 20-25 minutes cab. Room was pretty small (4 ppl).

The location confused the taxi driver at first as the taxi couldn't go down the street, however it is easily accessible with two stations and Tiananmen Square within walking distance. The rooms where clean as were the showers and the staff extremely helpful and polite. The girls toilets were outside and since I went in winter they were a little...

Stayed here just one night before flying out of Beijing and it was well worth it. Good location for sightseeing and the city center, not necessarily for going to bars, clubbing/dancing. Cool vibe in the common areas, which include food and drinks. Met some cool Brits and Aussies. One well-traveled Aussie said this was his favorite hostel in the world....
