I really enjoyed staying in this hostel. The service was quite good and the staff was helpful, although they could have been a bit friendlier. But I guess it has to do more with the atmosphere created there. The breakfast they provided was great and it was really worth it. I should also say that I felt really comfortable there.... More

I am writing this review after having stayed in 2 6-bed dorm rooms at this hostel. My first experience staying here was quite nice and I have recommended it as THE place to stay during one's visit to Leipzig. However, now, at 03:53 in the morning, I am not having the same experience. As I am writing this review, it... More

This place is located on the main station road, quiet at night and busy with trams connecting you to other parts of Leipzig easily. The staff is very friendly and gives all relevant explanations. The beds are comfy, double-deckers, showers are basic and you'd need your gel and shampoo. I stayed in a 4-person room, the place is very clean... More

Very good location - in a city center, near train station. The building is renewed, very nice. Big room with table and bathroom. Good Wi-Fi. Nice Staff. Only the fridge in a kitchen was very small and somebody stole my sausage!!! And the city very boring.

We have stayed here for three nights. We had the top floor apartment which was very spacious and clean! The location is perfect and the beds are comfy. Parking in the neighborhood was no problem. We can definitely recommend this great place!

We stayed in this place for one night. We had not booked a room, but they still had room for two girls from Finland. It had been a very hot for few days and since the sun was shining to the room's two windows all day long it was really hot in the room. Also the small bathroom you shared... More

Sleepy lion is in a great location very near the train station and pretty much in the city centre. The rooms are very clean and prices are good. The staff are also pretty friendly. On the downside there was not much of an atmosphere there. Everyone kept themselves to themselves and not much happened after 8pm. One other problem I... More

The hostel is lovely. It's very clean, modern and comfortable. However my only issue was the noise. The hostel is very large with the rooms all very close together. The noise travels through the windows and I was woken up at about 8am because there were fellow residents with music playing at full volume, singing, chanting and laughing. This wasn't... More

Well located. Free wifi in all instalations. Average breakfast (just ham, cheese and bread). Excelente service! Very helpful people. I went with my family and a lot of school kids were stayimg in the hostel. We thought that it was going to be noise but it wasn't. We had a very good night to continue our trip to Berlin

This is a hostel but hotel also, a concept i like very much as it has the qualities of both. The dormitory is large, with its own bathroom. The wifi is excellent in the lobby. Only shortcoming: the kitchen is really a kitchen corner: just microwave, boiler and fridge. This is much better than nothing, but basic.
