It was my first time staying at a hostel and it was a really good experience! When I arrived the staff had a good level of English and were very helpful, they showed me to my room which was a 6 person dorm (as expected) on the ground floor, which was clean. I was given sheets to make the bed...

We had a reservation from some months ago for a twin room and when we come to the hostel they told as that they have only room with 8 beds. After long time of discussion they gave us a twin room, but definitely the staff was not very pleasant. The good thing is that is in the city senter.

We had seen a lot of great reviews for the hostel prior to coming, but there were a lot of issues that are hard to ignore. We stayed for two nights in a private, double twin bed room. The room was clean and aesthetically pleasing, but it was quite cold, even with the heater on. We called the front desk...

Leo Hostel is located in a busy tourist hutong street. Lots of restaurants around. It is easily accessed by the metro which is a comfortable walking distance away. Staff are nice and speak English. They were helpful in directing us to an atm, as they do not exchange money. They also offer a Great Wall tour, however, we chose to...

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Firstly, staff were pleasant and the cleaners stood out to me for how hard working they are. I think its pot luck in which room you stay in and whether you get a window or not. I stayed in 210 which is upstairs at the back so I had the toilets and...

I stayed in the 10 bed dorm for 10 days in October 2014. It was very affordable and the restaurant was good. It's more of a place for people who want to meet others and like the loud, busy bar atmosphere. The beds were comfortable and clean, as were the rooms. There were outlets in each bed area. The bathrooms...

Staying here for 7 nights. Great tour to ancient part of the Great Wall, very reasonable priced and good atmosphere! Location is also very important here: close to Tian an Menh square, metro and forbidden city. When traveling alone, meet other backpackers here. For female solo travelers safe spot to stay.

Great hostel if you need the central location. Clean, comfortable, cheap, and staff who speak some English. Mainly though, I use this hostel for the “Secret Wall” tour of the Great Wall. Be prepared to get up early, but.. it’s worth it!

Stayed at the hostel for a week. Great staff that were very helpful, fellow backpackers were abundant, and very central to the main sights. Rooms felt secure with the locking doors. Washrooms were clean, showers were great with very hot water, and staff came by several times a day to clean. Food was alright as well, however I preferred walking...
