I totally understand why this hostel is the number one hostel in Beijing. Super well located, really clean and helpful staff. I stayed in the bigger dorm and it was comfortable, warm and clean. The common room is nice and cosy except that they don't heat it during the day (in winter it's a bit cold). Bathrooms were clean and... More

The staff is the best asset there. Very helpful and would write down the destinations in Mandarin if required. Listen to their suggestions for food too. The Hostel is clean in general but the cleaner washrooms are on the ground floor. The location is perfect and in center of major attractions.

I stayed here in August 2015. I travelled alone to China to see my friend who lived in the area and found the Leo Hostel. Good value for money if you're a traveller with a low budget, a nice friendly atmosphere with plenty of other young travellers backpacking around Asia and the location was right near the station, Tiannamen square,...

The hostel is beautifully decorated as most hostels these days are. However I found the dorm room to be very cold, not cozy at all as other hostels in northern China are as well I found one the two female staff members to be very cold, not very friendly and less than enthusiastic to help posing travelers. I say this... More

We stayed in Beijing for 3 nights. Leo hostel was the perfect location as it is close to the major sights - Tiannamen square, forbidden city, "The Egg". While staying at the hostel, we also went on their "Secret" wall tour. While a bit pricey (rmb 260), it was well worth it. Our group of 6 left the hostel at... More

This hostel is great if you want somewhere clean and fun to rest your head at night. There was a lovey bar and restaurant with decent food and drinks, a relaxing place to chill. The hotel is in a great location close to public transport, minutes from shopping, restaurants and 10 minutes walk to Tiananmen Square. Friendly and helpful staff.... More

Nice place, has a good vibe. We arrived at 3:30am and they managed to get us a room. Staff were so helpful. Wifi is really good. Showers powerful and hot. Quite a walk to the toilet but its ok. Cafe is nice also with a good vibe. Stay in smaller dorm for good sleep
