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...

We were a couple staying there in early december. Our room was standard size but cleanliness was nothing they seemed to take speacial care of (I know cleanliness standards are not the same in Asia than in Europe). One night there was a little mouse in our room which we managed to kick out. Bar staff were friendly but front...

Would probably try somewhere else next time. - Good location, 10 minute walk to metro - Bedroom and sheets did not seem very clean - 3 Shared toilets and 3 showers (did not shower during the stay). Sink was smelly - Lockers were small boxes with broken door knobs so it wasn't secure at all - door to the dorm...

I really, really want to give Leo hostel a great review. And that's cause it's got a lot going for it. The location, for one, is near perfect in my opinion. Dashilar has great food, some brilliant hutongs, Tiananmen Sq less than a km away and the Forbidden City a longish, but still accessible walk away. There's a well stocked...
