Traveling with a large group, we stayed at the Sleepy Lion for two nights. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The room are a nice size, the breakfast is adequate and the location is very convenient. Our room had a private bath with an excellent shower and plenty of hot water. The beds are comfortable and...

I enjoyed staying 2 nights at Sleepy Lion Hostel in Leipzig from 15 to 17/12/2013. It is calm, no buzz, clean, there is a kitchen, you can prepare your breakfast, the staff is friendly and helpful. I really liked this hostel, that is within 2 walking minutes from the city center. A good place to sleep.

Nice location with both Central Station and City Centre within walking distance. Also nice to have a kitchenette to make your own food. The ventic system, however, could not cope with cooking, then you had to open all windows in order not to alarm the fire brigade. Open windows also meant a lot of noise from the street. The beds...

Stayed here with our young boys (4 & 2) during the spring time. This was the only 'Hostel' we stayed in during our time in Europe, so we were a little unsure of what to expect. It really couldn't have been better - it was better than most Hotels we stayed in! Unit was extremely large and comfortable with great... More

i stayed here for a night with 4 friends. We are studying in Jena, Thuringia and wanted to spend a day/night in Leipzig. The hostel is only 7 mins walk from the main train staion and about 5 from the centre. We went during the xmas markets so it was beautiful! The hostel itself is spotless and the rooms are... More

Good "comfortable" hostel : for 15€ (mandatory sheets included) , I had a bed in a 10 person room, very spacious, with subrooms of 2 and 4, one shower/toilet for the room. Good location, near downtown and the station. Sheets, beds and rooms are clean as far as I can say. WiFi is okay but not great in some room... More

The hostel itself was in a good location in Leipzig and was reasonably priced. However I found the staff hostile, when I phoned up about directions the guy was rude, then when me and my friend arrived at the hostel the staff acted like they couldn't be bothered talking to us and just started rolling cigarettes. When we asked any... More

dEDevo dire che lo sleepy lion è un buon ostello, a solo 1km dalla stazione lipsia, una buona colazione, un buon personale. Solo mi aspettavo gli asciugamani in stanza. Riguardo il parcheggio per l'auto: scordatevelo, è solo a pagamento. I must say that the sleepy lion is a good hostel, only 1km from the station leipzig, a good breakfast, good... More

This place fulfilled all our needs and more. We had a huge, spacious, well-furnished and spotlessly-clean apartment on the top floor. The little extra you pay for an apartment as opposed to a room is well worth it as you do not pay for bed linen and you can self-cater in peace using the kitchenette. Good bathroom as well. A...

Sleepy lion is a nice youth hostel, it looks quite lovely in the inside, the rooms are big, beds are confortable. The staff is nice, they speak perfect english and that's pretty great. It is just a bit annoying that they charge you 2€ for the sheets, I find it a bit expansive for what should be normal... But the... More
