Liked: w]We stayed in a 4-person room with private bathroom - there were new mattresses and bedding, new bathroom, big room.

Disliked: The room didn't seem like it had been properly cleaned after the previous people - dust balls floating around and floor not really clean- but this is just being picky, overall the cleanliness was fine. Our room smelt a bit like cigarettes but we had large windows to air out the room.

Liked: Central location in a nice art nouveau courtyard in a pedestrian zone within the old city.

Disliked: I'm not very particular about cleanliness, but the bathroom was not cleaned and the rubbish bins were not emptied for a least half a week. When I checked in there was no linen on the bed, so I inquired about it and was assured that it would be put in place in a matter of minutes. However when I came back after a few hours it was still not there and I had to go to the reception and get it myself. Apparently one of the other guests had the same problem. As for the kitchen, I don't think there even is one in this hostel.

Liked: Very clean and spacious, great location too.

Disliked: The only thing i can say is that if, like myself, you're pretty useless at reading directions then you may get slightly confused on the location. But saying that i would have to say i am most probably the exception!

Liked: Say Cheese exceeded my expectations!! The location is just unbeatable! It was surrounded by all the attractions I was interested in visiting. It's in one of the happening areas of Leipzig. It's also strategically located away from traffic, so you can still get a good night's sleep. The hostel is super-clean and seems very new--it has a very distinctive fresh paint smell in the stairs. I was also pleasantly surprised by how big and spacious the 8 bed dorm was. I never felt claustrophobic during my stay (like I have in other hostel dorms).

Disliked: Only some minor things: there aren't mini shelves by the beds to place belongings; the showers in the hallway are for both male & female--but there is nowhere to change your clothes!! The showers separated by only curtains! :-O So, I avoided using these and just used the shower in my dorm. The directions on the website are a little bit off. It does not take 5 minutes to walk from the train station to the hostel--more like 15-20 minutes. But it's a very a pleasant walk through the lovely downtown of Leipzig. The hostel should be a lot more stricter with getting guests to wash their dishes in the kitchen. The pigs who are inconsiderate leave their dishes piled high in the sink, impeding the job for the responsible ones who want to clean up after themselves.

Liked: The property was very spacious, central and clean.

Disliked: It is definitely not a good place if you are looking for a good night's rest. It was very noisy up until very late into the night.
