Booked here a little last minute after other plans fell through and I'm really glad I did. Location is a little walk away from the shops and really close to Wien HBF and public transit. Rooms were clean and open with large lockers for luggage storage. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, if you have no idea of... More

This was a really nice hostel to stay in. The common areas were spacious and nicely laid out, with games like chess and backgammon, as well as a few different musical instruments. There was a great kitchen and there were a couple of lovely gardens which would be a really nice place to hang out in the summer. The rooms... More

THANK YOU Loli for this lovely and thorough review - we couldn't have said it better ourselves :). The spiced apple tea is something we try to have out for guests during the cold part of the year (i.e. whenever we have time to make it). We used to only offer free tea over the holidays, but now we've extended... More

In terms of the accommodation, this hostel was nothing spectacular. The room was big enough, cosy and the beds where comfortable. The shower was just outside along with a sink and toilet, all separate, a good thing i think. Staff where good, friendly and helpful with a really good map of the city. If your like me and enjoy a...

Hey Oliver, thanks for taking the time to review us! I have to say, I think there's quite a lot about our hostel that's pretty spectacular - for one, there's the cozy, friendly scene in our common room & bar that you describe. There's also our fantastic, knowledgable & international staff, plus all the little extras - a fully equipped... More

For a first time in a hostel I couldn't have asked for a much better place! The check in staff were very accommodating and friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and perfect for a weekend stay in Vienna! The breakfast was great for the price, 2,90 Euros for cereal, yogurt and fruit - not to mention coffee with free... More

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.

Hey Natalie C, thanks a bunch for this awesome review! I must say I agree with you about those 'paper-cut-out' direction tags, they're brilliant. Just grab a few tags and a free map from reception, and you can find your way to any of the major sites in Vienna. I'll be sure to pass on the compliment on to Monika... More
