Good place to stay, great location, clean and quiet. As mentioned by other reviews, breakfast is pretty good but not included with the room price - 8eur. A couple things here and there remind the building's past as a nuns convent, and gives a kitschy touch. Wouldn't mind coming back again.

Location was good, a few minutes walk from the Westbahnof train station and tram stops. It was very clean and simple which was all we needed. The rooms were quite large and had a sink in them. There are shared bathrooms and showers which were also clean and well maintained. They look after your bags if you arrive before check... More

Ideal for backpackers on a tight budget! Located right next to Westbahnhof station in Vienna, the rooms were quite cheap, considering this is Austria. It is located 20 minutes away from the city center (by walk), which was also a plus. When we checked out, we left our luggage in a storage, and the lady at the reception desk seemed... More

The standard is high, and the location is perfect. I love Westbanhof, and if you won't, you can easily escape it anywhere via U-Bahn. Because this place is rather peaceful and clean, it feels more like a hotel than a crowded hostel. It is great if you are looking for rest as I was.

Good location, the bed was comfortable and the wifi was great but that is really all the positives I have. When I arrived the room hadn't been cleaned properly, when I lifted my bag off the floor it had lots of hair from the ground stuck to it. Yuck. I felt really uncomfortable by the religious vibe, and especially the... More

Had a good stay for 2 nights here. It is very near to Westbanhof station and there is a tram station right outside the place. The rooms have basic facility but also provide robes which is useful when bathrooms are shared. Bathrooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast is for Eur 8 and its recommended. Interesting thing is that all rooms... More

Very clean and quiet. Location is perfect, few blocks to westbanhof station, and has a tram stop in front of the hostel. Staff are very friendly and speak english. The building used to be a convent so It has its own charm. I definitely recomend It. The room could have been more cheerful and have basic facilities like a cupboard,... More

The hostel is really close to westbahnhof and not a bad walk from the old town. We had a twin room with a shared bathroom. Beds were really comfortable, and towels and robes included. A sink was in the room also. The WC was female and male in the same room which was weird and a bit uncomfortable. The showers... More

Central positioned and very clean. Wifi is slow, toilette and shower cabins are in common. Nice if you want to save money in a relative expensive town. 15 minutes away from Schoenbrunn Palace or Central Museums

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
