We have been to Leipzig many times and have always stayed at this hostel. Love the rooms and comfy beds and kitchenettes. The staff is just excellent . Friendly, helpfull and funny. Also breakfast is insanely cheap. But we love the manager Leila the most. Very kind and caring person. Thank you.

We really liked the hostel, i would recomend it to anyone. It's clean, has a place to hang out and the breakfast (which if you stay more than 3 days is free) is really complete. The bad thing is that our room was by the window so it was really noicy and the internet was kind of bad sometimes. There...

This is an efficiently run hostel in the middle of Leipzig, near the main railway station, tourist information and shopping. It was almost booked out when we arrived, so we agreed to the mixed dorm.

Every thing in this hotel is fine except NOISE. You will experience the noise in all day and night long unless you close all of your windows. But, the access to the city center and zoo is very good. Enjoy!

For a couple of days I stayed in this new and well equipped hostel: very clean, nice staff, comfortable size of the dormitories, very good wi-fi connection. They offer tea at any time of the day. Breakfast is not included but available at a reasonable price (€4 or €5, can't remember...).
