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. Maybe I don't rate... More

On the good side, the reception staff are friendly and helpful, but... ... the hostel doesn't feel good value for money and I wouldn't recommend it for a pleasant stay in Vienna. Sorry but there are much nicer hostels in the same area. I paid 25 euros for one night in a dorm, which included a free breakfast. It was... More

Dear Guest, hygiene is extremely important to us . The rooms are cleaned daily by our housekeeping. In case of problems guests can come at any time to the reception. If there are bed bugs in the room, we would ask you to announce it immediately at the reception. In such a case, the exterminator will be notified immediately and... More

I stayed for almost a week in the Westend City Hostel with two other friends while were were in Vienna with our University. We stayed in an 8-bed women's dorm, which was bright, comfortable and clean. For the most part we had good roommates, although one complaint I have is that there isn't an age limit for guests like there... More

The room was average and what we expected. The breakfast wasn't anything special all. The location wasn't bad, really close to Westbahnhof, there is also a large shopping street only a few minutes walk away. The cooking facilities were limited to a microwave and a kettle but it's enough to make do. The wifi didn't reach our room which was... More

Really solid hostel close enough to the city centre to be good. Metro station 1 minute away. Hostel itself was clean, comfortable. All the staff were super friendly and willing to help when it came to finding things to do and recommending things. Decent

We were going to be in Vienna for 3 nights, but cut our visit short partly because the weather was horrendous, but partly because we felt pretty uncomfortable in this hostel. It is not close to the centre at all, the subway will become your best friend. We usually walk everywhere but in bad weather conditions it is a horrible... More

We arrived in Vienna around 10pm and did not need to leave for our next train until 6am the next morning therefore visited this hostel as a safe place to... More

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
