Great place for the price, friendly staff, great location not too far from the center and close to the Tram and its clean. But the internet is totally useless even in the ground floor. There is a luggage room but without locks

Yeah, this hostel is okay. It was affordable, close to a metro station to get you into the city centre, and the rooms were spacious and it was nice to have an ensuite. If you have an iPhone, it'll take around 24 hours for your phone to connect to the wifi. No one seemed to know why this happens, but... More

The major drawback were troubles with wi-fi, ranging from slow and unstable work to temporary unavailability (in public space; wi-fi is not accessible in the rooms). I stayed there for three nights, and this was not repaired, but rather grew worse. Room was generally fine for a hostel, with three beds and bath&toilet inside. There is no breakfast there, but...

This hostel has a very good location and price. It was nice to have a private room (which looked like a dorm straight out of college) to sleep in for a few nights. Wifi didn't really work ever. It was very, very hot at night. There is no AC and if you get a room on the inside with a... More

Thank you for review. Unfortunately we do not have an air conditioning in our hostel and during your stay in Vienna the temperature was reaching 35 degree so we understand that even during the night it was quite hard to sleep well. We have also already improved quality of our WiFi connection. I am sure that our staff did not... More

Awesome place for young people or students! The hostel is cheap in comparison to what you find in Vienna and the location was the best thing about it for us! Okay yes, we had to walk about 20-30 minutes to the city center but the hostel is close to tram lines, metro station, many museums and "must" attractions. Last but... More

it is a really nice place for students and youngs, the price is cheap and the place is big enough, the only problem is that the place is really hard to find...it also has a nice kitchen, and only about 10 minutes walk there is a very nice Chinese restaurant.
