This hostel is a good one. It is very close to the metro station which you can go anywhere with your Vienna Card. The room was clean and quiet. There were few other people staying here I think because it was March. Most of them were nuns which is weird. Well only the first floor has the wifi signal but... More

We booked 3 nights here in early March and weren't disappointed. OK, so the rooms aren't huge, but we thought they were well appointed and airy. For 44 euros per night and 8 euros pop for breakfast, that's just 60 euros a night, in a great location. Upon arrival at 6pm, Thomas, the night manager was extremely helpful. We moved... More

The hostel was cosy, clean and modern serviced. The room we had was nice and comfortable, a little small but adequate as we were there for only 3 nights. What I did not like was the welcome I received when I checked in. First impressions count and for me friendly stuff is necessary. There was also just a small area... More

Stayed there twice - in December 2012 and in January 2014. After my first time I considered it to be clean but uncousy hostel. But after my second time I would definitely not recommend it. There were bugs in the room! Also there is bad sound isolation.

Friendly and helpful staffs. The hotel was nice and clean. The room was pretty and comfortable. Bathrooms and restrooms were clean. It required a little walk from the train station. The distance was not too bad once you get familiar with the area. The price was also unbeatable and it worth every penny when you consider what you got. It... More

My boyfriend and I have been travelling Europe and stayed at this hostel for a couple of nights. I read another review which said this place was a cross between a monastery and a hospital with its disinfectant smell and this is completely accurate! It has crosses in each room and echoes due to its large size which I found... More

Probably the best hostel I have stayed in. Very close to Westbahnhoff and with the number 5 tram stopping directly outside. Friendly and helpful receptionists who really go above and beyond with a great command of English. The rooms are large with comfortable beds and a shared bathroom. The rooms are extremely well soundproofed as I heard nothing from the... More

Kaiser 23 was very clean, and the staff were all most helpful and very friendly. The showers and w.c's were spotless, and although the room is smaller than a regular Hotel room, it was just as comfortable. 4 nights, and four great sleeps. If you are a more relaxed traveler, and don't need to be waited on 24-7, then you'll... More

Outstanding stay for four nights with our two children. The whole place was spotlessly clean and the wifi/TV lounge was extremely comfortable, even with kids. Unlike some hostels, this one seems to cater to a slightly more 'mature' crowd, so there were no wild gangs of pub-crawlers about. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very...

Thank you very much for your comments. To make the nightly trips to the bathroom less inconvenient we provide comfy bathrobes in each room. Good Point on the place to sit. We placed at least one chair in each room now. There is always more at the reception should more be needed. This is an old building and the architecture... More
