One of Beijings most popular budget accommodation choices, Leo Hostel is a family-run property with a reputation for providing a fun and friendly place to stay. We can accommodate up to 100 guests and have rooms to suit all budgets, including private en-suites and dorms. All dorms feature security lockers large enough to fit a backpack.

We enjoy a central location, situated on an ancient HuTong market street only a 5-10 minute walk from Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and Qianmen bus and subway stations, which offer convenient access to all parts of the city.
Our facilities include bicycle rental, a laundry service, a book swap, airport/station pick-ups and free luggage storage and wireless internet access. We have a large bar and restaurant serving western and Chinese food, and we have various entertainment options, such as darts, a DVD library, a pool table and a PlayStation 2.

As well as the usual tours, we run our own Leo Hostel excursions, including a Secret Wall tour where guests have the opportunity to see the Great Wall away from other tourists and to enjoy a traditional meal in a local village.
Discounts are available for long term stays and tour groups.
