Such friendly staff here and are super helpful. The place is clean and full of great spaces! We got upgraded to an apartment which was incredible and had such a great stay. The location is pretty good and it's easy to get to all the main sites. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed here for 3 nights in jan. Awesome experience. Love the FAQ section in the office, you can take paper cut outs of directions to popular destinations for reference- makes life easy! Great facilities and very clean and quiet. Everything you could want from bar to laundry and the friendliest staff.

Tips are all around the hostel, what to visit, to do, not to miss, how to move around, etc. Full kitchen, laundry service, cosy bar, piano... More

We spent 7 nights at the hostel January 2014; we are a mother/2 adolescent-adult daughter trio. Our first impression was positive even before we arrived in Austria as a friendly e-mail was sent to us to arrange rooms. On arrival, we were upgraded from a 4-bed room to an apartment which we appreciated. We can only imagine how lovely this... More

There are useful cooking facilities and they have a choice of simple breakfasts and coffees etc. Plenty of showers, I never found myself waiting for one no... More

I stayed for two nights and couldn't have been happier. The staff were very very friendly and eager to make sure my stay - & my visit to Vienna - was as enjoyable as possible. The hostel is a very short walk to Wein Westbahnhof which has international rail, airport bus and city subway stations so in terms of transport... More
