Everything was great, but I couldn't lock my things because the drawer lock part was broken. I also didn't find any tissues beside the tap and that annoyed me so much. because everytime I use the tap. I had to go to the toilet outside the room and get some tissues. The staff were very helpful and friendly, but the... More

Large, modern, good-value and friendly-staffed youth hostel on the NE of Vienna. Rooms are basic, but functional with bean bags for chairs. The beds slide apart or push together, something I've never seen before. They have a large bicycle-storage locker outside surrounded by a sturdy steel cage. The breakfast was good, buffet-style with lots of choice.

Very big building close to Brigittenau. The location was perfect for us as we went there for a festival which was a 5min-walk from there. Otherwise it is quite far from the city centre. The room we got (separate double bed-room) was very simple but nice, clean and modern. The breakfast is included in the price and is okay. The... More

Travelling along the Donau is a pleasure, but travelling along the Donau and not being robbed is even better. This hostel gives value for your money. The hostel provides rooms suitable for couples, families and groups, not to mention the individual. One can take both breakfast and dinner, each at an affordable price. Breakfast is included in the lodging. The... More

Went with a friend to this place last year. Very neat and clean hotel. We drove to this place from Prague. This place is very near to tram station and parking is available on the basement but you have to pay 12 euros per day for it. Breakfast is good. I would recommend this place.

The hostel facilities are fine. The place is clean and the breakfast is ok. However, I'd rather stay in a dingier hostel without breakfast if the location was better. This hostel is far from absolutely everything. It feels like a hospital or some sort of institution. There is no fun of any kind to be had here, and there were... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your comments and the positive feedback to the "hardware" of the hostel. Of course we have to accept your personal opinion that the hostel is "far from everything", in fact it takes 20 minutes by tram to the city center, the shopping and entertainment center "Millenium City" is about 10 minutes walk away and the...

I was really impressed with this hostel. It is fantastic value for money. Reception is open 24 hours a day and is staffed by bright and helpful people. There's a secure bicycle store. Three meals are available if you want them, and are considerably cheaper than what I was paying elsewhere. There's free wifi in the public areas which worked... More

This hostel is located right in the center of the city, not expensive and absolutely comfortable to stay in. The rooms are large, neat and well-equipped for such an attractive price. Most of all I liked the snug lounge that is full of books in different languages, magazines and other entertainments. It's really important i think that it has an... More

Let me start by saying I have stayed in A LOT of hostels, so I've not exactly got high expectations. But this place is the worst I have ever stayed in. I just travelled from Budapest, where I stayed in a hostel by the same company Hostelling International. I paid half the price of this place for the same amount... More

Dear guest We ´re sorry , that you felt disturbed from the other young guests of our hostel but you have to understand, that young school groups also have a right to stay with us. They are always accompanied by teachers, who are responsible for them and if other guests still have problems with them, they can contact our reception,... More
