Welcome to the
Sleepy Lion Hostel, Youth Hotel & Apartments Leipzig
Our Sleepy Lion Hostel, Youth Hotel and Apartment complex is conveniently situated right in the town centre. It is just a few steps away from the Thomaskirche, the Stasi museum, the zoo, the main station, the Kneipenviertel (area of town with a large number of bars and restaurants), the Leipzig Arena, the Bach Museum, the Nikolaikirche, the Moritzbastei and many of Leipzig’s other sights and places of interest.
Whether you are planning a weekend break, a study trip, a family holiday, a business trip, a school trip or a trip to celebrate finishing exams, our hostel will provide you with the ideal base to discover the cultural life of the oldest German trade fair town.
Our beautiful Wilhelminian style building was completely refurbished in 2011 and has disabled access.
We offer the best service for the lowest prices for city breaks, students, business trips, backpackers, students, groups of young people, families, school groups, globetrotters and the young at heart.
It’s easy to reach the trade fair grounds by public transport, and the main station is visible from the hostel. The Sleepy Lion Youth Hostel, Hotel and Apartment complex was the first backpacker and low budget hostel in Leipzig, and one of the first hostels in the whole of Germany.
Our hostel is a real alternative to the usual German Youth Hostel Association (DJH) hostels. We look forward to meeting you in Leipzig.
