This hostel is not in the city centre but luckily pretty close to a metro station. It was hard to find places to eat near to the hostel, and there is no kitchen here!! You have to pay for all extra stuff like towels, and there are a lot of posters with rules on them and how much you will... More

Pleasant stay at Vienna City Hostel. The location was okay, not much to do around the actual hostel but very close to a metro station so easy to get to other places in the city. The hostel was very clean. Our room was quite small but had everything we needed including an en suite, lockers, reading lights and plenty of... More

More a hotel than an hostel. The building is cold and GREEN ( everywhere and too much). No ketcheen, wifi only downstair... Perfect if you are just here to sleep, it´s clean and quiet. The staff is nice ... But don't expect meet other people here, it is empty

It's a good hostel, quality for money! Didn't like the location! It's not in the center as mentioned. You have to pay for everything else( Locker, Towels, soap, everything) Nothing is provided within your package. Reception was so helpful, good English which facilitated communication, provided maps, internet and they replied all questions. In my opinion, its a good place for... More

I was there with 7 friends more for a night. We use two rooms for 4 people, very clean and with their own toilet and bath (but without soup). It's not situated in the centre and that makes you take the metro or tram always. All it's very clean and renovated but there's not a friendly ambience. The men in... More

We had such a nice stay here. The shared dorms are quite small but we only used them to sleep so no issue as downstairs in the reception there is a large communal area. The only problem is there is no real self catering facilities apart from a microwave and hot water and you need to ask for any plates,... More

I went 4 nights with my friend and I was disappointed about the atmosphere of the hostel. It's more an hotel than an hostel: for example, there is no kitchen (impossible to cook or even eat something in the hostel at night). You have to pay for everything (locker, towel, soap...) The staff is ok but not helpfull and not... More

My boyfriend and I had a few problems with this hostel. Firstly there was only about 10-15 people staying there at the same time as us. It is a big hostel therefore there was no atmosphere. We could clearly see where they had placed everyone in dorms due to the deposits left in the pigeon holes. They had put everyone... More

Stayed with a friend in a shared room with private bathroom. It's easy to reach hostel by metro (5-7 min of walk, then 10 min. drive to Stefansdom) or tram. There are a couple of shops not far, but no good places to go out - so be ready to drive to the center. It's possible to park nearby the... More
