Upon arrival and check in found they had already billed the credit card. Not the local tax, towel rental or key deposit so basically have euros available when you check in.  They state High-speed internet and FREE WiFi!! The Wi-Fi is free but it works only in lobby & garden. No signal 3rd floor. Also it only allows you one device at a time. I normally have at least two sometimes 3 devices going. States every room with shower and toilet not room 306, it's outside the room in the hall. Basic European breakfast. Again for some reason in German Hostels the other guest feel that they own the place. You open the windows to cool off the room and wake up in Dante's Inferno, other guest have closed everything. I've only encountered this in Germany.

Hello, free and fast WiFi is available throughout the house and of course in every room! For that you are giving the wrong rating! You need a separate code for each device, just ask for more codes if you use more than one device.

A very nice and cheap hostel! Very central as well. Calm, clean, friendly staff and no problems at all. No party groups who wake you up in the middle of the night - just the perfect hostel for a weeken trip with your friends. Thanks Sleepy Lion!

Stayed 4 days/3 nights. Clean and cozy. Internet sporadic. My phone (S9+) would lose connection if I left the building and wouldn't reconnect under my original credentials. Has to get new sign in credentials each time. Breakfast was decent. Met great people in my dorm. It lies 1 stop west of Leipzig Hbf, so super close to transit and city center shops and restaurants. I highly recommend it if you only want a bed and not much more!!

The hostel is very well located near the main train station - 10 min walking. The staff is very friendly. My room was very big. The breakfast could be better, but it is worth paying. There is also a shopping mall with a grocery store in front of the hostel which may be helpful. They have a password system for the wifi that is not so good because you have to type it all the time. But the connection works well. The hostel has elevators, so no worry about climbing upstairs with your suitcase.

Very decent hostel in the centre of Leipzig! Very friendly stuff, decent breakfast and also free wi-fi. If you look for a good, but also cheap hostel near the train station I would totally recommend this.
