Our Mission: To bring together the comfort and amenities of a hotel with the typical relaxed and social atmosphere of a backpacker hostel.You won’t be disappointed!

Leipzig is famous for its historical malls, called „Passagen“ of which most have been built during the art deco period, but some date back till the 17th century. Today they host little shops, bars and restaurants, gallerys and cultural venues, or, in our case, even hostels!

If you want to party, Leipzig is the place for you! In the last years it has attracted mayn young people from all over Germany and beyond due to a mix of cheap rents, vivid nightlife and mayn options of outdoor sports (Leipzig is surrounded by lakes connected by channels throughout the city).
