This hostel is great if you want somewhere clean and fun to rest your head at night. There was a lovey bar and restaurant with decent food, a relaxing place to chill. The only gripe I had about this hostel is the ensuite room we stayed in although decent size for a China hostel the shower was literally over the toilet.

The staff was friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The hostel offers a great tour to a quiet part of the Great Wall. I thoroughly recommend this tour as it takes you away from the crowds and you get three full hours to hike the Wall, picnic or simply do as you please. We also booked show tickets through the hostel they arranged transport to the show and it was literally a short taxi back to the hostel or a 20-30 minute walk.

Such a Great Place! Jun 07, 2011
I had a great time staying at Leo Hostel. They offer airport pick up and are located within walking distance to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The rooms are small but they do have lockers in each room. There is a common area with a wide selection of DVD's where I would bring my laptop in the evening to meet fellow travelers. If you don't have a computer with you they have a computer room which never seemed too full. They also serve meals and cold drinks, including beer. The staff was friendly and helpful, and they also offer tours at the front desk. I had no problem booking a day trip to the non-tourist part of the Great Wall with some of the new friends I had met.

Great hostel in great location! May 03, 2011
The hostel is located extremely close to Forbidden City & Tiannamen Square. It is in an amazing location and the staff was extremely helpful! There is a good sized lobby to meet other backpackers and friends. They also have a rooftop garden and sauna on their top floor. The staff was friendly-- I would definitely stay here again, not to mention, it was fairly reasonably priced!

Hostel with a Character Jun 01, 2010
This wonderful hostel is located within walking distance from the Tiananmen Square and subway station. Cozy and comfortable, clean.. yes, clean rooms and toilet, friendly staffs and affordable. Everything you could ask for in a hostel, they've got it. Most of the guests i met here extended their stay just coz it is so comfortable it feels like home! A place you'd wanna come back to after a long day of travelling.
Nice ambiance too.

About 60RMB per night, but if you book more than 5 nights in a row, you get it for 50 or 40RMB per night. You can haggle.. :)

Great People Apr 22, 2010
This was a great hostel. I stayed in the single room which was about $25 american. There are also beds in a men's or women's dorm which are about $7 a night. The staff is great. There is a common room to sit and meet people. They serve food at a decent price also. Some of the staff speaks decent English which was great for me. This place is in one of the Hutongs and is around a 5-10 minute walk to Tianamen square and the subway.

Leo Hostel Jan 25, 2008
Leo Hostel in Beijing is one of the best hostels ive been to. It's a walking distance to train station, Tianenmen square, Forbidden Palace an the Bell tower (although abt 2km away). The bed prices range from 60yuan per bed on a dorm type accomodation, to 200yuan per room on private ones. The hostel has a great lounge area, where you can play DVD's of your choice all day from the wide selection they have there, free Wi-fi everywhere in the hostel, a billiard table, and computers (for free too). They also offer great tour packages like the one I got when i went to Mutianyu pass. (go see my blog), a secret great wall package, etc. Theyre also one of the only 2 hostels in Beijing i think who process permits for Tibet. In the evening, the lounge/dining area becomes a semi bar venue where travellers meet, drink and discuss their travels. Great place if you want to make new friends, I highly recommend the place when in Beijing!

The perfect place for backpacker in Beijing Sep 26, 2008
I would recommend this place for a backpacker.

Perfect point to meet some other traveler and share the experience.

Also located on downtown ear the underground so it's quite easy to get around.

The hostel staff also very friendly and helpful during my stay there.

Can't wait to go back soon!

I had the pleasure of staying in a great little hostel in the Dazhalan area outside of Tianamen Square when I went to Beijing. The staff were absolutely fantastic to me and were really receptive to ideas of the visitors. They are extremely organized in the tours and shows they offer and have a Secret Wall hike to an unrestored part of the Wall. Overall, I met great people here and the bar vibe and food were excellent. Rooms were cheap and I somehow got a 3-bed room for the price of a 10-bed dorm. Not too shabby! Private rooms are also cheap and there is an inner courtyard that expands to the back of the hostel. There's also an in-residence artist and a tv/video game room. Leo Hostel is owned by a foreigner and they all know how to treat people well with exceptional standards for an incredible price.

One anecdote I have. When I arrived in Beijing and was hopelessly lost, I called the hostel to explain where I am. Being of Asian-background, I told them it might be different to spot a Chinese-looking girl in the streets of Beijing. However, they assured me that someone was going to physically find me and 5 minutes later, I am greeted by one of the hostel managers. You cannot top service like that considering this is a hostel and not a luxury 5-star hotel!
