Vienna City Hostel is clean in terms of being dirt free and with its minimalist interior design. Maybe cleaner than most guests have a right to ask. And the staff are a friendly enough lot. It's proximity to a commercial area also means that food, supplies, and shopping will never be a problem. On paper, the hostel seems to be... More

The hostel was very clean and near subway. The staff has been very friendly to tell us how to get to the airport. The wifi were not stable. Over all it was worth.

Stayed here in the summer of 2008 for just two nights with a large group of high school students. Rooms were clean, comfortable and the service was great. Very close to large train stations and there was a pizza place across the street and a little grocery stand around the corner. Highly recommended, esp for the price point.

After travelling Europe throughout the summer on a budget and not experiencing any bad accommodation this was probably the worst one and even this wasn't too bad...! Me and three friends stayed in a very small room together with barley enough room to fit our luggage. The shower wasn't the cleanest and the shower curtain you defiantly didn't want to... More

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
