Friendly English speaking staff, great location, free Wifi. The restaurant/bar area is really nice and comfy as well as reasonably priced. The secret wall tour is a must but don't expect much from the tour guide, he pretty much gets you to the wall you have 3 hours on the wall on your own, hardly any tourist around then make... More

Although this hostel was clean and friendly it was freezing cold because their heating was broken. I ended up with the flu. I dont advise staying here in Winter, unless they do something substantial to address the heating problem. Also secret wall tour advertised did not run due to a problem with the car.

Good amenities, clean and easy to reach, helpful staff. I wouldn't recommend booking train tickets through the desk though, 30 yuan per ticket is quite a big surcharge. Also, when trying to buy a SIM card, they will direct you to the China Mobile shop next door - that will most likely rip you off.

Clean rooms, good facilities, perfect base for beijing exploring. Location was top notch and the atmosphere of the hostel is good. Delicious breakfast, cheap snacks and close to restaurants and supermarkets. Fast wifi as well.

The hostel is location, the Tiananmen Square, Wangfujing Street, Night Food Market and the Forbidden City can all be accessed on foot (not exactly near, but very accessible). The hostel is easy to locate, and the metro station gives you access to the different spots in Beijing. Lots of cheap and decent food options nearby. We didn't have breakfast here,... More

Firstly the hostel is in a great location, just South of tianamen square. The street where Leo's is located is full of local authentic eateries, market stall and shops. It was one of my favourite parts of Beijing. The staff were really helpful and Benny helped us book a travel to Xi'an to see the great warriors (they charge a... More

My husband and I didn't stay in this hotel, but were looking for a cheap tour of the Great Wall and found it at Leo's. The tour was 260 including lunch which was a good price we thought, although you visit a non touristic part of the Great Wall and it is awesome not to have people around, there are... More

I stayed for 4 nights due to this hostels excellent location. That was definitely a big plus. It was nice that you could also book tours through them as 2 of the tours I had booked before coming to China were canceled on me. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful and the room rate was quite affordable.... More
