Liked: The location of Leo is excellent. It is on a very popular hutong street with bakeries and shops. It is a 10 min walk to 2 metro stations and Tiananmen square. It has a nice feel to it and has a great bar/restaurant with well priced western food if you need a break from rice or noodles. They have a pretty good tour to the Mutanyu section of the Great Wall.

Disliked: The Wi-Fi is the worst we encountered in all of China. It is so unstable it only works for short periods of time so be prepared to use your data. The rooms on the main floor are right next to the bar and lounge spaces so if you plan on sleeping you need earplugs. The ground floor is also open air so if you are here in late fall, winter or early spring it is very cold. Our particular room, 529 was between the restaurant and lounge and had many problems besides its noisy location. It is a very small 4 bed dorm with little space to put bags. The washroom desperately needs renovations as the toilet seal is broken and so it leaks from the bottom when you flush which generally makes the entire room smell like a sewer. There is no where dry to hang anything in the washroom. There are drain pipes behind the beds.

Liked: The hostel is well located, few mins away from forbidden city. The installations are clean and qute well for chinese standards. The staff speaks english quite well and are very friendly

Disliked: There's something about the atmosphere...even though there is a bar downstairs nobody really spends time in there or chats with others, but I think this is something related to the city more than the hostel

Liked: I loved the atmosphere in that hostel. A great place to meet people, to talk and to chill out. The very best thing about that place :-)I stayed at the 14 bed dorm, which was ok. Pretty crowded all the time. If you guys are thinking about that hostel or 365 inn, you have to go to that place! It is way more private and not completely open to the road! The location in general is pretty good, close to Tian'anmen square.The staff was good, when you are there ask for peter, he is the coolest one. He does a great job there!You have to check out the Snake Vodka.
