Leo Hostel Beijing Reviews
Good base in Beijing Mar 26, 2013
I stayed there for 5 nights in a dorm. If you book online, can get it for 30RMB, which is absolutely okay for what you get.
The location is awesome. 5min to Tianmen sq, 5min to the subway. The hostel is in the middle of old hutong, which I also recommend to check out.
Rooms could get cleaned more regurlarly, but totally okay to live in. Bed are clean, just a bit hard, but you wont get something better in that class.
Bathrooms could get renovated, but are still okay. Pros are the lovely 24h bar with international dishes, which are surprisingly good. The TV room with LOADS of Movies for rainy days. Staff speaks english well and helps you with everything you need, like train tickets, way descriptions, problems in your room etc.
A further recommondation are the tours they organise to the wall. With 250 RMB quite expensive in comparison to chinese tours, but absolutely worth it! You are going to a part of the Wall, which hasnt been restored. That means, no loads of tourists, no loads of little shops who try to sell you souvenirs and an amazing scenery. Wait for a sunny day and you have an amazing trip.
So Leo Hostel is a super budget option in Beijing. You wont regret it.

Great Hostel Great Value Great Location Mar 14, 2013
I have been to Leo Hostel a few times. Its great. I would reco it to anyone looking for a great location within Subway lines, the square, and they offer a great wall tour called "the hidden wall". There is a duck restaurant nearby which is off the hook. Night market is on the same street as leo hostel. There are 2 locations on the same street run by the same hostel, they were always willing to stay up late to welcome me in off the red eye flights
super cool and fun!
