I've been to way better hostels for way better prices. Look out for hidden costs, no Wi-Fi on higher floors, no kitchen, poor service and Spartan rooms, with series of problems. I wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone.

I've stayed in way better hostels for 20 euros than this one. If there isn't AC (klima) on a hot summer night, then what is the 20 euros for. Check out is a surprisingly early 10:30 am and nothing is free or included.

Very nice and clean hostel, quite strict but helpful staff. Room was lovely and clean, however got very hot with 4 of us in after we'd all had showers; as it's quite small . You have to make your beds on arrival and also strip them when you leave. Easy to get to, we walked to town but would recommend... More

This gets a classic 3/5 from me. At no point in your stay is any effort made to ensure your stay is anything more than average. The location is near the HBF station (hence reason for our stay) but too far really from the City centre. The rooms are a bit crampt, the guy at the reception looks like he'd... More

My issue with this place was the location rather than the actual hostel itself. I don't usually mind being far away from the city, especially because it is so close to a metro station but I felt very unsafe in the area as a female traveling alone. Walking the small distance to the hostel I got groped and pursued by... More

Located very near Vienna's main station which provides good links to the real old centre of Vienna however not exactly walking distance. The staff were very helpful and friendly when checking in. The rooms themselves were very tight and would maybe suit a full group to a room (people you dont mind staying in close proximity with). The one shower... More

Staff was nice and had amenities for rent. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. There was ample space and lockers large enough to fit backpacks. No breakfast. Wifi was available in the common area, winch needs some maintenance and air conditioning as the glass windows create what feels like a greenhouse! It wasn't too far from the metro or the train...

This hostel is clean, the staff are relatively helpful and is near the main trainstation... however it is not in a central location (13 min metro ride away), it has absolutely no cooking facilities, average washing facilities, average rooms, you must pay to use the computers in the hostel... Worst of all there is absolutely no atmosphere in this hostel..... More

Standard city hostel with okayish rooms and breakfast is also good. Prices are cheap and the place lacks charme. The location is not the most practical but if you look for a cheap place to stay not too far outside the city you are right here.
