We had a double private, on the plus side, the bathroom was quite clean. On the down side, one of the beds was from a metal structure, while the other was wood, with a better mattress and way more confortable. One of the sheets of the bed had weird stains, which we had to change. Literally, we had to change... More

I had a one night stay at the hostel in a 3 bed shared room. The front desk staff was very helpful and welcoming and answered with all my questions. I had booked my reservation via the website in May, when the hostel wasn't open for business and I gut the confirmation right away. The connections to the centre are... More

The rooms here are fine - clean and decently sized. However, we booked a private double only to be told we were going to 'have' to share our room with another person. We were messed around with various confusing emails, only to be told on arrival it was fine and we could have a private room after all. However, despite... More

We were a group of 10 persons, wanted to visit the city in 2 days. Therefore, we were looking for a budget hostel, yet clean enough. I am happy that we booked this hostel. Rooms and linens were so clean. Free wifi was provided in the common room. It was a walking distance to a tram station. We had this... More

Fabolous place located in the heart of the city centre. One of the best, and probably the most fun, hostel I've stayed at in over a year of traveling Europe. Nice, clean bed linen. Lovely staff spent about half an hour with us and show everything on the map, where to eat, where to have a beer, whats worth seeing... More

Perfect for a low budget trip. Clean, quiet, full of teens and nice people and close to downtown and all the important places to visit. It is also close to the tram station and only 2 subway stations away from the very heart of the city. If you're planning to visit without any expectations from the accommodation, this is the... More

Room quiet and clean, close from bus and tram stop, less than 20 min walk from city center. Friendly staff, they showed me on a map a free parking area close from the hostel! (5 min walk) There is a kitchen inside the hostel and free wifi access only at the reception.

Pro's: clean, spacious rooms, great and clean private bathroom with excellent shower, brand new interior (all IKEA) and comfortable beds, great sleep quality! I did not get the big desk in the room though.... Although we did not use the kitchens, they looked nice. Con's: people smoking in common room, no hostel atmosphere at all, only 3-bed rooms so a...

The room was clean & comfy, equipped with a fridge. The bathroom was large, clean and fine. The staff did their best to be helpful but they were not very knowledgeable about Vienna and there has been a problem with our booking (which was sorted to my satisfaction). Good location for city centre and the price was OK. Right across... More
