The room badly needed cleaning properly (at least) before the guests arrive. There was hair in the "freshly clean" linen, in the bathroom. The hostel staff was not very friendly and welcoming. Doors do not open very easily with the keys and are a pain to work with. A tired guest when arrives in the hostel expects his/her bed to... More

I honestly couldn't wait to leave. We booked a 'private double' room which was 2 uncomfy twin beds we had to push together. The room didn't look finished as the ceiling was still the bare concrete and the room alternated between Saharan and arctic temperates through the night as the uncontrollable aircon system changed it's mind. There were so many... More

There's a number of things wrong of this hostel so I'll start at the beginning. 1 - believe the hype. It's in the middle of nowhere. It's about a half hour train journey from Central station (directions to the hostel were also abysmal) as well as taking me around 45 minutes to get into Central Vienna by the U-Bahn. 2... More

The location was quite far from city centre. I have not tried the internet connection,but the room was spacious. No lock for locker was available, but luckily we have our room by ourselves. The breakfast was quite complete.

We found this hostel to be tidy and spacious however did not enjoy our one night stay here at all. As a couple, we were booked into a shared dorm which consisted of a double bed and bunks. On our arrival, there was another person who had already taken the double bed. He arrived back very late at night and... More

It's located around km from the center, but you can easily access it with public transport. Hostel is very big with nice clean rooms, nothing specal but all you need is there. Semi self served restaurant is very good, you can pick what you like and i'm sure you can find something to like. We loved the common room with... More

This hostel consists of two parts, older and newer. I had the opportunity to try both. The older part has smaller rooms with bunk beds but almost everyone has it's own bathroom. It looks very much like and old student dorm. It is ok, clean and everything, but I'd recommend you to book a room in the newer part because... More

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.
