Located near the train station, this hostel is very convenient for travelers. It is just outside the city center. The dorm was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, we had another occupant in our room that snored really loudly. The breakfast was decent. The wifi was good. Overall a good value for the money.

Stayed with my husband in a private room. Excellent hostel, good price. Room was clean, nicely painted with cute decorations on the walls (our room had a tropical theme with palm trees and hibiscus flowers) to give a bit of colour. We paid 4€ per morning, each, for breakfast. Quite basic, but it got the job done. Nice bread, cheese,...

I stayed in Sleepy Lion twice, Once in the dorm, the other time in private room. Very well run established, conveniently located to the main railway station and the old market - 10 minutes walk to each. I especially liked the private room, 4 beds with kitchen. Probably one of the best options for budget accommodation in Leipzig.

Hostel was quite basic, but it was everything I needed for WGT -festival trip. Staff was helpful and backyard was very simple but nice extra. I stayed in 6 bed room with my friend. Minus is from the lack of mirrors: I didin't see any fullsize mirror in the building and that was quite weird. Also beds could have been...

~15mins walk from centre, located next to a museum. Stayed in female 6 beds room. Big and clean with a fine washroom inside. Staff was okay and friendly. The hostel was so quiet, no atmosphere at all, if you want to make new friends, maybe only in the traveling time like Summer. Overall quite good I would recommend people to...

I did stay one night in the sleepy lion hostel in February 2016. The hostel is nicely located and the prices for shared rooms seem to be fair. Nevertheless I had one of my worst hostel experiences at the sleepy lion. Here are the reasons: 1. (minor point) I have been to Leipzig several times before and I knew that...

Located in walking distance to the central train station and the zoo, this cozy hostel is the perfect choice for a weekend trip to Leipzig. We stayed for two nights and our room was surprisingly big. Breakfast buffet is standard and a small kitchen with fridge is available. Interaction between guests and helpful information on what to do in the...

We stayed in this hostel for two nights. It was reasonably priced and close to the city and a 5 minutes walk from the main station We found the lady at the counter nice and friendly and was happy to direct us to various locations. The dining area comfortably accommodated everyone we just wish there was a full kitchen instead...

I stayed here for 3 nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), for the location it was surprisingly not that busy. It's a few hundred meters from the train station, you can walk or take the tram 1 stop from train station to the hostel. Room was clean, furniture appeared to be relatively new. There was a shower in the room (4-bed dorm)....
