The staff were very lovely and so helpful. They were all about making sure that your stay is the best it can be and they even gave us a map of Prague after asking what our next destination was after Vienna. The hostel itself is a quieter area of Vienna, but still pretty central and close to a metro to... More

This was my first hostel in Europe, out of many, and is still one of the best I've been to! I stayed for 12 nights around Eurovision week - really long stay, so you can imagine how glad I was that this was such an awesome place. Friendly and helpful staff. Great common spaces. Nice breakfast options for fair prices... More

Had a great experience of this hostel! Friendly staff really helpful. 24 hour reception which was great and in walking distance of all the sites! Rooms were cool bed sheets and towels all provided. There's a bar and an outside area to socialise. Also good security felt really safe! Thank you!

Good points: bar area was nice and the range of drinks available was great, and all cheap. They even offered cocktails and these were nice. The rooms were big and clean. Staff were all very friendly. Location wise it was ok, near to westbahnhof. There were plugs and lamps at every bed. Bad points: the wifi was occasionally a bit... More

Hi there Foodieee, thank you for taking the time to review us! We've been working hard to keep our wifi in tip-top shape, with the goal to have perfect wifi available in every room - I will pass your comments on directly to our IT guy. As for the push-button showers - yes, you got us, they are ''eco-friendly'' :).... More

This hostel was perfect and in many ways was as good or better than many hotels. Really friendly staff. Nice and clean room with a comfy bed. It had a super atmosphere and the opportunity to play guitar and other instruments was great. Would definitely recommend and stay here again if visiting.

This is one of my favourite hostels! Staff are friendly, the place has a very chilled out vibe and the location is fantastic, very close to West Bahnhof, a major train station. Stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm. There is a fan but no air con, so it can get hot in summer. Rooms are very clean, and every... More

Hey Howsta, thanks for this great review! A note on the heat - Vienna is only really HOT hot for a few weeks out of the year, and since we're an eco-friendly hostel we've made a conscious decision not to install AC. We DO however provide fans for every room, plus plenty of extras to pass out as people need... More

Amazing common areas with gardens, games and musical instruments. Really great staff and clean rooms! It gets really hot in the summer, but you can always ask for an extra fan. Amazing vibe and great location.

We stayed here for two nights and did not want to leave! Staff were friendly, polite and extremely helpful. They gave us a few tips about the city and lots of directions to different places. The rooms were clean and tidy as well as the bathroom. It is a brilliant hostel for meeting new people. Really cheap drinks at the... More

The hostel near to westbahnhof. There is a tram stop nearby and near to Schloß schronbrunn. The breakfast very delicious. The reception staff very friendly and helpful. Everything is ok for us. The bad side is the sensor in the toilet (light and shower)

Hello Veronika, thanks for taking the time to review us! Please do contact us so that we can figure out which room you were in - it sounds like the light sensor in your bathroom is in need of repairs! More
