Very close to Tianamen Square and public transport stations. Clean rooms and very kind staff. But, the mattress are a little hard ! Anyway, it's cheap and safe, taking into consideration that Beijing can be a very expensive city ! I stayed in a two beds room :)

We had an awesome stay here, it was our first hostel we stayed in when we first reached china and the best so far. The atmosphere is really good, it's like a nice little family. The staff helped us out (big time) we got struck on the Great Wall and if it wasn't for the help from Leo staff members... More

Except the location, this hostel has nothing to offer. The room we stayed in was dirty, I had to kill 3 bugs running around the room in the evening, the AC was linked to a water bottle that flooded the room overnight, and the bed was similar to sleeping on the ground. Not an essential, but the wifi wasn't working... More

Leo hostel owns a branch down the street called leo courtyard, fancy staying in a couple hundred year old brothel? Well the courtyard is just that place. Nowadays it's a lovely tea house rather than a brothel with quaint small but clean rooms surrounding the tea room. It's big and open and has a great bar/restaurant and also travel advice.

The best thing about our time in beijing was easily our trip to the great wall with noodles from the hostel. Had the wall pretty much to ourselves and enjoyed a (warm) beer atop the turrets. Great day out.

We stayed here for 6 nights, the dorms and facilities were very clean and the beds were comfortable. There is a security locker in each dorm for your valuables. The bar downstairs serves average food. The staff are friendly and helpful although their English is limited. The location isn't the best. Although in a tourist hot spot and close to... More

Great bunk beds, very comfortable. Staff are very helpful and speak English well. Great price. Cheap beer. Super market next door, Mac Donald's down the end of the street and plenty of food places. Tinanamen square just a short walk away. Toilets could be cleaner. One way street and hard to get a taxi early in the morning (5am)
