This youth hostel doesn't have what it takes to be considered a welcoming place for guests, it's a total rip off. First the good sides: friendly receptionists, comfortable beds, fairly quiet rooms. AND NOW THE DOWNSIDE...: the hotel manager is categorically not available for complaints, I found hair everywhere in the room, towels ARE NOT INCLUDED and charged extra (this... More

Clean and comfortable, which is what most backpackers or travellers want. The price is more towards the higher end of what I would pay for a hostel and so I feel like the wifi should have been available in the rooms, but it was only available in the awkward, very quiet common area. The staff are lovely - cannot find... More

I made online reservation for this hostel and I imagined, as it is a student campus the place, that it's going to be not that clean. But I was very surprised to see a very clean room, very clean bathroom and very clean kitchen. The price is a very good for Wien, only 30 euros by night for a room... More

The room was very big, clean, and quite. It was an en suite room, but our booking had said a shared bathroom.The location was good too, and we had no complaints there. We only stayed 1 night though before our next train.

This hostel was very nice to stay in. The room and bathroom were clean and there are kitchens available for use if you want to cook your own meals. They play a movie every night at 9pm which is usually in English. The main problem with this hostel is the wi fi. You can only use it in the common... More

Clean nice rooms with private bathrooms, facilities of kitchen and laundry were good and large common room with computers. Staff were willing to answer questions and print things off which was good but thy weren't especially approachable or friendly. Not close to centre but good transport links closeby (metro, tram and train station) and shops. The wiFi only worked in... More

The hostel is very close to the HBF. For a hostel, the twin-beds room is large and it contains an independent bathroom. The Wifi is weak and the connection is slow. The check-in speed in frontdesk is also a bit slow since there is only one receptionist.

Single rooms were very good value for money. The rooms have a fridge which is handy. This is an actual hostel where students stay during school terms. I found it had a very hospital-like vibe which was a bit eerie! Street is not that easy to find especially if you are arriving by train at night but convenient after you... More

A regular room, not quite big with a private bathroom, the wifi dont reach the room, it's only available in the room next to reception. We just wanted to stay one night to rest and this room was enough for that. Many people and many luggage always around the reception. There is a little fridge in the rooms.

In the railway station building you can find supermarket which is opened to 11 pm (and during weekends too, when all is closed).Nearby the hostel you can find... More
