I stayed in Leo Hostel with two other people, on a work trip. It was in a fantastic area, within walking distance of Tiannamen Square, and located in the cutest little shopping neighborhood. The street Leo Hostel is on is almost like an alley, with food and merchandise vendors all up and down the street. There's a T intersection on... More

Terrible service! NO CREDIT!!! I booked a bed in a 4-bed room for 4 nights online because of its good location to explore old Beijing. Before I decided, I called them to comfirm they can supply the invoice as it's very important for me. They said "Yes"! When I arrived, I double checked if they could definitely provide the invoice.... More

Less than 5 minuets walk to Tiananmen Square and then the Forbidden City Leo Hostel an excellent base to explore Beijing. Hostel is friendly and clean with a good bathroom in our 4 bed room. Including a western style toilet although paper had to be put in the waste bin. WiFi always worked in the main areas and charging plugs... More

I stayed there for the Chinese new year, it's a good place to know other travelers and explore Beijing, the hostel was clean, the bathrooms are decent, wifi in all the areas, the only problem that I had is that some persons of the staff didn't had an adequate English level, sometimes it was hard to understand what they were...

Very close to Qianmen subway station and Tiananmen square. The location is just perfect! Close to all the main attractions. It is even easy to reach the Temple of Heaven by walking. The hostel is very nice and cheap. It is the right place to chill and meet people. The restaurant is quite good and enjoyable.

The desk at the front desk were helpful. The accommodation was clean and quiet and the price was very good. The restaurant was very trendy and it is easy to mix with others with easy access to power points with free wifi. The food was good too and the beer reasonably priced. :)

The location is not hard to find in Dashilanxijie street, 10 minutes on foot from Qianmen station. I have 5 nights there in Dec 13 with pleasure. The heater and shower is ok even the overall twin room is quite small. The staff is friendly with adequate English. Unpleased thing is the key card deposit 200 CNY is quite expensive.

This hostel is generally not good, but in a decent location. The hostel is quite hard to find; as it is located in a pedestrian-only street of a main road. The receptionists speak adequate English, but do not seem to enjoy their jobs. The room I stayed in, a double twin, was not good at all. The room was a... More

This hostel was horrible! The lighting was comparable to a prison camp! I decided to upgrade to a double bed ensuite and the heating didn't work properly, the shower didn't work and half the ceiling collapsed. DO NOT STAY HERE!!

Stayed in the Leo Hostel in November, as a group of four. Had a quad room, which was clean, a little on the compact side, but served it's purpose fine. Nice atmosphere, and friendly staff. Shawn and Gary were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Has a bar and restaurant, where the prices aren't bad (a little high compared to street... More
