The hostel's convenient location near Wien Westbahnhof is probably the only reason I would choose to stay here again. The hostel's website clearly says "free bedsheets" and "free breakfast", so you can imagine my surprise when I had to pay €2 when checking in for bed linen and €4 in the morning for breakfast. I was told that this was... More

Stayed here for three days, wasn't impressed at all. Location is good, but you are hit with a €2 fee when you arrive for linnen. The building itself is like an old hospital. No noise after 8pm and the "kitchen" is literally a microwave and a george forman grill. Staff were mixed, some friendly and some not. If you are... More

Me and my family stayed there after deciding to stay more days in Vienna and our current hostel did not have more beds available for those nights. I must say I was quite happy with the decision. The hostel has an excelent location - it's a 3 minute walk to Westbanhof, where you can easily catch the train and the... More

I stayed with 4 friends in an 8 bed dorm in the ground floor. The room was very quiet, except on the first morning at about 5:30 when what sounded like 100 suitcases were dragged down the stairs! The free breakfast was perfect. A list of what wasn't free is next to reception. George, one of the staff, was very... More

Only a block and a half from Westbanhof station but 10-15 min walk from most sight seeing attractions in city center. Right next to shopping district. Staff was nice, but hostel is not very new so have to take stairs half the time (up to 4th floor) and bathroom/shower was not the greatest. But it gets the job done! A... More

Stayed at this hostel for a few nights during our European trip. It has a fantastic location to get around the city, whether it is a train, tram, metro or other kind of transport you are using, it is perfect. The common room is the heartbeat of this place where many people gather and make friends throughout their stay. The... More

Myself and two others (mid-20s) stayed in a mixed 10 person dorm for 2 nights at the start of our interrailing trip. Its so close to Westbahnhof station (about a 10 min walk) and reception were always helpful with any questions we had about directions,etc. There is also an Aldi and ATM 3 mins away which is handy. For anyone... More

Ok hostel, nothing special. The location was alright, only because Westbahnhof is a few minute's walk away. Otherwise, I would prefer to stay closer to the city center. The dorms are clean, but very hot. My major complaints are that the wifi does not work except for in the common room/outside area and that large groups of people, including receptionists,... More

If you are going to stay in Vienna, stay here. The staff are above excellence, room and bathroom were really clean all the time. Will stay here again! Met some nice people there and had a lot of fun with them in Vienna.

I won't go back there if I have a choice, simply because I've known better places in Vienna. It's not crappy though. The lift wasn't working Location 9/10 : 3 min walking from Vienna Westbahnof (West train station and subways). Price 7/10 : Normal for the quality of the place Clean 7/10 : It was ok.
