Very great hostel, not far from the city center. The center can be reached by metros, which are 2 minutes away on foot from the hostel. The place is clean, they give you clean sheets which you have to put on by yourself and return the day of your departure to reception. Prices are very low, it is ideal for... More

Staff very nice, helpful. Conditions were adequate to price, room was clean. Close to metro and bus station. Breakfasts not in price, but were cheap and tasty. Wifi was ok, sometimes drops connection on 3rd floor :).

The staff is really friendly, the hostel is beautiful and clean, but the Internet Conection in the rooms were really poor. The breakfast is good but a little expensive.The location is good, there is a metro station in Keplerplatz and near the square there is a lot of places to eat and go shopping.

Extremely comfortable beds, clean environment, quiet place, not bad location. Their 6-beds are a little cramped, but have an en suite shower room and toilet room which was nice. I would stay there again, absolutely.

This is an ok hostel just to say. It is not far from the metro station and also close from the main train station. The area near the hostel are not bad for shopping and eating during the day. They do take many students in group trips, which is not something bad, but makes the hostel pretty full sometimes. The... More

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
