Liked: Very nice hostel. Clean, near the main station, cool staff. Reception 24 hours makes feeling you safe, as well as the key card system and lockers in the room.The hostel provided helpful maps and other information. Beer and cola for just 1.50 EUR. Unfortunately i had only one night to stay. Wish i could stay a bit longer in beautiful Leipzig.

The property's response is

Aftre all we are a hostel. Our beds are not made up (like in most hostels we know) and that is the reason for the low price you paid. If we would include a lot of extras in the room price, it would be certainly higher. But we don't want to be a hotel.

Liked: It's a well managed hostel, very clean, new facilities, a nice old building. Have a look at the beautiful stairs! Good lockers. The location fits to all interests, close to the city centre, main station and stadium, with tram connections to bar areas. If you don't know the city it is the place to be! Very safe district.

Disliked: It is details which you could do better, but there is nothing which is really negative.Just some ideas: organize joint events to go out, at least on weekends, offer a free walking tour, create a better place to meet other guests, like a small and tiny bar. (But maybe you don't need all this things in Leipzig?)I would add the bed sheet tax to the daily rate: Modern hostels usually do this inclusive price; the bed sheet price is for old style Jugendherbergen!
