- “ I booked deluxe double room but wasn't somehow available (staff refused to explanation why). Had to stay in a normal twin room. Was refused to get discount or refund for the room change. I had to pay for deluxe room to stay in normal room! The hostel is not clean, reception staff are rude, doesn't speak English, tried to cheat the change. Coffee from the bar had a dead cockroach in! ”

- “ The Hostel was really well located, the staff was very friendly, the bar had good food (although a little expensive, compared to nearby restaurants) and beer. The bathroom and showers could be better though. The dorms and the bar used the same bathroom, so it was always filthy at night. ”

- “ I arrived at 8am in the morning and they did not let me check in till 12 noon, as it is some of their policies or something. It was the worst part as half of my day was wasted. The bathrooms were not clean. Rooms were ok. The continuously playing music was very annoying. The location is just perfect. I would suggest and recommend this hostel to any visitor, inspite of some demerits. ”

- “ Great atmosphere and I so appreciate the reasonably priced food from around the world. They also offered a driver to get us to a remote part of the Great Wall. The only thing that I would change was the shared bathroom facilities, could be done a bit better. But overall great place to stay! ”

“ While the staff were helpful to me, when my tour guides tried to call and talk to me or leave a message, the staff wouldn't help. The hostel uses their own tour group so aren't helpful to any other tour group you might be dealing with.
Tv wasn't working in the room. I started for 8 nights and sheets or towels were never change.
Location is good. ”
Hello Thank you for your comments. We can take messages from anyone, including tour companies. However, we will not allow tour companies to sell tours within the hostel! ;) If you have a problem with your room, or need to change your sheets/towels etc, please tell reception and they will be happy to help you. Thank you and hope to see you next time! Leo Hostel

- “ Was a bit disappointed as this is not the courtyard location usually pictured for Leo Hostel; nonetheless they had a pseudo-courtyard and the location is simply excellent. I would definitely return here, and would certainly like to try the other Leo Hostel location. Great people, great value. (Two week stay). ”

- “ The place is really big, with a lots of rooms and a large bar. The staff tries really hard to get attention and good reputation for this hostel, but I didn't felt it like something special, sorry. Wi-Fi isn't available at the bar, you can't eat your food in there, the only PC available for use is at the counter (and it's used by the staff). In February the place felt really cold, especially at the bathrooms, I didn't even dare to take a shower to not get cold. Staff speaks only some English. ”
