Overview of Hostel
The Sleepy Lion is the very first independent hostel for backpackers in Leipzig.
Our beautiful Wilhelminian style building was completely refurbished in 2010/2011 and has disabled access.
We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and are proud to offer the best overnight possibilities you can f
You will arrive at Leipzig’s modern main station, the largest terminal station in Europe. Leave the station, turn right, walk along Tröndlinring, and after 500m you will stand in front of our hostel.
Alternatively, if it is raining or snowing, or if you have a lot of luggage, you can reach our hostel by tram. The town’s main tram stop is directly in front of the station. Take line 1 (towards Lausen), line 4 (towards Gohlis), line 7 (towards Böhlitz-Ehrenberg) or line 12 (towards Gohlis-Nord). Get off the tram at the next stop. You will be able to see our hostel from the tram stop..
