Hallo

Das Hostel ist fast direkt im Zentrum, es hat also eine sehr gute Lage. Die Zimmer sind normal eingerichtet. Das Bad ist mit im Zimmer und relativ groß. Leider ist das Personal recht unfreundlich. Man wird teilweise wie ein Kind behandelt, man hat das Gefühl dort ist alles verboten. Es ist einfach sehr nervig, man will einfach nur eine Nacht dort verbringen, aber man muss wegen jeder Kleinigkeit ewig diskutieren. Eigentlich ist man dort zahlender Kunde, da sollte man auch so behandelt werden.Leider ist das nicht der Fall. Das Frühstück kann man übrigens auch vergessen. Kostenpunkt 3,50€.... Das ganze "Buffet" kann man wahrscheinlich im Laden für 3,50€ kaufen. Es war also sehr wenig und wurde auch nicht wieder aufgefüllt.
Von der Sauberkeit her war das Zimmer O.K., aber leider wird im Bad wohl recht sparsam geputzt. Die Dusche war eigentlich nicht zu benutzen.
Also im großen und ganzen kann ich das Hostel nicht empfehlen, es gibt sicherlich bessere in Leipzig.

I highy recommend this backpacker hangout... Great location close to city center and pub area, clean rooms with en-suite bathrooms, lockers, comfortable beds, fair prices, meeting place for all young and cool people visiting Leipzig ;-) Beautiful old building with round-the-world-trip atmosphere. Nice staff, great common area to hang out.

Just 15 Euro in a 6-bed-room, linen 2 Euro, breakfast 3 Euro (I did not have breakfast at the hostel).

Directions: Park your car at the IHK building - free on Sundays and holidays, or try to get one of the spots on Gottschedstraße, free all the time.

Alternatively tram to Gottschedstraße.

pretty hostel in a trendy district

this hotel is a 10 minute walk from the train station in a beautiful old fashioned building in the trendy nightlife district of leipzig. the rooms are affordable and sparsely furnished but in huge old hardwood floored rooms with gigantic windows. the staff member was friendly and helpful, giving us a lot of tips, and the huge recreation room with pool table and sofas is simply beautiful, with picture windows.

A very clean hostel with large bathroom

by written on May 26, 2003

I chose this hostel specially because of its name at the beginning. I like the name of Sleepy Lion, and it proofs that I made a very good choice.

Extreme clean and comfortable 4-bed room, plus quite big bathroom with shower and bathtub. 2 beds are inward with curtain as a partition from the other two.

Breakfast buffet: euro3

Unique Quality: A extreme neat and cozy hostel with clean and self disciplined backpackers to save energy all the time... :-))

Convenient location to Zentrum (Centre) about 5 minute and walking along the ring road...

Directions: west part of the Zentrum

Hotels in Leipzig charge you € 60 or more each night. If you don't have much money and you can do without room service and porter just book a room at Jugendherbergen (youth hostels) or pensions.
