#24 of 119 Specialty lodging in Leipzig
Our Hostel is located between the city centre and the lively southern town quarter of Leipzig. You will find a lot of restaurants and nightlife here but also quiet places like the park at the canal, wich is only five minutes to walk to. Public transport, ATMs, grocery stores, bakeries or the drugstore - it's all around the corner. The rooms are allocated on two separate floors, each fitted with a communal bathroom. Downstairs is our freshly established restaurant and bar with occasional events or parties. Outside we have a dreamy decorated garden where we sell BBQ food and beer. During summer this part of town is full of people hanging out, partying, talking. A lot of students and young people live or meet here, so the atmosphere is quite relaxed. We are a ,,room-only"-accomodation and there is no kitchen or communal room. To have good food, hang out or play table soccer you can visit our restaurant, bar, lounge or garden downstairs of course. Check in from 2p.M. Until midnight. Check-Out until 11.00 A.M.

Our three-bed room was very spacious but there was only one toilet and one shower for 4 rooms.. The whole flat is very poorly ventilated..Our windows were not on the street but we could still hear the traffic..

I stayed 12 days here. Rooms are clean and fairly big, but the internet line does not work well. On the other hand, breakfast is great and the italian restaurant under the hostel is one of the bests i have ever tried. Best for students, good enough for families.

Stayed 3 nights at this hotel and this was our experience: You will need to pay in cash up front before you stay, so just be prepared when you get there. At only 50 euros/night this represented excellent value as the room was clean and quite big with an attempt at fancy/artsy furnishings. They had a chess board hanging on the wall which you could remove and play, which was a nice surprise! There is good quality double glazing on the window - when both windows are shut, the room is silent, however when open you could hear the noise and traffic outside. As it was summer, we had the windows open and slept with earplugs which wasn't too bad. They only had 2 beds available when we got there - there was no option to choose your bedding style and we suspect they just gave you whatever they had on the day... We found the beds to be a bit too soft for our liking however. The only negative point was that although the wifi was free, our connection was terrible, and we found we had to sit in the stairway to use it. This was a bit painful as the stairway has motion sensor lights which automatically switches off after about 1 minute!! So most of the time you had to continually keep flicking it back on which became quite painful... Location of the hotel is excellent - within walking distance to the CBD and all the attractions. There is however no parking on-site - nearby there are some free parks but be quick or they will go! Our research at the time showed it was the best value hotel in the area and so for that reason I would recommend it to others as long as you don't need to rely too much on the internet!
