It is a perfect budget Hotel situated in central Vienna (15 min walk to the pedestrian zone), not far from a Metro station (5min walk), in a quiet and safe area, with very clean rooms, correct breakfast, and with parking possibilities. Good WiFi. Excellent value/money rate for Vienna. It is the 5th time that we are staying there for 1-3... More

This is much more a hotel than a hostel! I booked a bed in a 4 people mixed dorm, and found out that it almost was a multiple hotel room, with private bathroom and really nice furniture. The position of the hostel was very good, 15 minutes walk from the city centre and 5 minutes walk from the U-bahn and... More

We spent 4 nights on August. Family with two young kids. The place was full but it was ok. Good value for money. Very good service and good vibe. Rooms are small and clean. If you come after 6pm make sure you call and see that your reservation is saved.
