I spent a couple of nights at the Westend City, which, is pretty centrally located for the things you'd probably want to see and do. I found the hostel a little strange though, and more so the guests - which, I know the management have no control over to a degree. It appeared that whole families were living there, which... More

Clean, comfortable rooms, each with their own bathroom and heating. Staff were friendly and helpful, and provided a map of the city upon arrival. The location isn't optimal for visiting touristy areas, but there's a multitude of shops and a metro station easily within walking distance. The wifi struggled to reach the second floor, but the common room and terrace... More

I went with my family to Vienna and booked 5 beds at Westend City Hostel. The rooms were clean, the staff was helpful and friendly and the atmosphere was also very nice! Breakfast was included in the price and it was pretty good. We went during Christmas so the breakfast also included delicatessen. The hostel is located near the west... More

Reserved a 2 bed room here with a friend. We had a bunk bed and a small table with chair in the room as well as an adjoining bathroom with shower. The room was fairly dark as we had one window that was basically opening in the elevator shaft (luckily fairly quite and not running late at night) - but... More

I found everything was great when I stayed here, a 10 bed dorm but for the first two (out of 6 nights) I was the only one in there, and for the last two nights it was packed out. The free Internet was perfect and it was great hanging out in the lounge room, a laid back atmosphere and the... More

I stayed in the 10 person dorm for about 18 Euro. For the price it was good. I had 4 other pretty quiet people rooming with me when I went to bed. However in the middle of the night 4 more people who were quite loud joined the room and took a while to get situated. To make things worse,... More

The hostel was clean and close to train and Metro station. I arrived from Euroline bus station at night, so it was quite convenient for me to took the U6 to there. The room was large, and there were lockers. They have a elevator which was closed from 10pm to 7am. There were not many kitchen utensils; the only appliances... More

All around a good hostel. Wood bunk beds, lockers, a nice little courtyard. There's a kitchen & vending machine w/ pop & cans of Heineken! Breakfast is good but standard hostel fare- enough to keep you going till the afternoon. The location was excellent, very near the main train station. Made it very easy to go on a day trip... More

I stayed just one night in the hostel but enjoyed it. The hostel is clean and located in the nice neighbourhood, close to shops and bars and underground. The hostel is opened 24 hous so you can come whenever you want there. The staff were really friendly and helpful. I stayed in an eight-beds room with a bathroom. The beds... More

Close to the nearest station and easy to find which is always a good start. About a 20 minute walk from the sights of Vienna. Hostel itself is fairly average. Common room doesn't encourage interaction amongst people but has basic kitchen facilities if needed. Wouldn't bother paying for the breakfast as the choice is limited.
