This tour was really fantastic, we left at around 8am and went to a section of the Great Wall which had ZERO tourists! Utterly fantastic. We hiked a lot and were able to get phenomenal photos and experience the wall with no one else, it was incredible and a true once in a lifetime experience. The lunch after was also... More

I visited the Leo back in 2015 and wrote a very positive review about why I loved this hostel so much. I have returned again in 2016 but unfortunately my view on this hostel has changed quite a lot. There are still positives to this hostel which I love just as much as I did before so I'll go through... More

Great location and good value. 5 minutes from Qianmen subway. Short walk (10-15 mins) from Tianmen Sq, Forbidden City. Has lots of shops/eateries nearby. At night there are vendors right outside which was great if you like a midnight (or 4am) snack. Stayed 4 nights (unplanned) in both large dorms and a triple room. Sleeping could often be interrupted in... More

The location is perfect, really close from touristic sights and restaurants. Don't go there if you want to rest peacefully. There is a bar downstairs, dorms are really big (10 beds for us) The toilets and showers downstairs next to the bar, so really no intimacy, you have to cross the bar to go to the shower. For the girls... More

I only booked the Great Wall tour at the Leo Hostel. There were no other tourists apart from our group and we were able to hike on the great wall all by ourselves. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone that likes to see a less touristy part of the Great Wall.

Good facilites. Well cleanned. For me the best definition is honest. Not to cheap but there are good points like the location close to subway station and Forbidden City. Staff could speak better English. But it is enough!

Great location, easy to find. Beds are comfortable, dorms are spacious. Lockers avail (bring a padlock). Bar also serves food, Western and Chinese, tasty and not too pricy. A great place to meet people if you're travelling alone. The only downside side is it's very dimly lit and if you're staying upstairs the bathrooms are all the way downstairs, through... More

After a long train ride from Ulaanbaatar to Beijing I was looking forward to a comfortable place to stay. I arrived at Leo which is located very close to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square as well as Starbucks, other wester restaurants, and mass transit and checked with fairly quickly. However, when I got to my bed in the hostel... More

Stayed here for one night before we went to the Great Wall. The place is clean, and tidy. I walked around barefoot (not a strange thing for me to do but one of the clearer hostels for this). We had a few meals here, the western breakfasts are good - one thing I couldn't get used to in China was... More
