This place smells strange, the bed in my singleroom too. I payed for a single room with my own shower, still I had to share both shower and one toilet with 4 other persons. It's very easy to hear the neighbours! And traffic outside. My room were three stairs up and there were no lights by the stairs, creepy when... More

We were there for 3 days at the end of December. Had a private double with shared bathroom. We got a room in a small appartment of two locked rooms, a bathroom and a small kitchen corner. We were lucky cause there was noone else in the second room, so it was quiet. The room was clean and warm, a... More

This is budget hotel/hostel so adjust your expectations accordingly or you will be disappointed; I paid 35 euros for single room with shared bathroom. Lay out is unusual in that it is rooms in apartment layout being rented; rooms without dedicated bathroom will share kitchen and bathroom with two or three other rooms. I stayed five nights. Pension Kraml is... More

It was alright for what we paid, a bit grubby. We stayed in a two person apartment. It was very spacious but a bit musty, could definitely do with a revamp. Also the toilet was in a separate room to the shower/sink which was unusual. The shower head fell numerous times and is quite heavy, was lucky not to get... More

Considering our twin room cost over 40 euro a night in total (the price of a cheap hotel), we were left disappointed. The hostel is not happy; there is no real communal area to meet people and the staff are helpful enough but seem to go through the motions of reading out places to visit and what time checkout is...

This place could have easily been rated 3/5 from me if it weren't for the little things that affected our stay here. When we arrived at the hostel we were greeted kindly by the woman at the desk, who told us how yo get to the rooms etc. One thing we did notice was a lack of communal area in... More

Rather than having huge dormitories, this hostel has more of an apartment format with a private kitchen and bathroom between two rooms. This is excellent if you are looking for more privacy although not so good for socialising. The hostel is cheap, very close to the Westbahnhof and between the city centre and Schonbrunn palace. The rooms are basic and... More

There's no luxe, because it's a hostel. It's a simple and nice place. The staff is gently. I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom. The restroom, bathroom and all parts of hostel are clean and well organized. There is a individual entrancy, hall and kitchen for a group of 3 rooms. It's safe. The staff is gently. There... More
