When others say great view, believe them :) We didn't book a room on the side of the garden but still got it. Price is good for Vienna and it includes a breakfast that has variety of foods and drinks. Rooms were clean and warm (important when you travel in winter). Bathroom looked a bit run-down but it was clean... More

I've been a guest in this hostel many times but I can't help noticing that there hasn't been much done during the last 10 years or so, not even a layer of fresh paint on the walls. This place has been great at the beginning, nice rooms, clean bathrooms and a location where you can see the sun rising above... More

I have to say that the breakfast is awesome. The kitchen has nothing but a kettle and microwave oven. Don't expect too much. The common area was dark that you can find no switch of light. Well you can use a lamp... They have table and seat in room but the WiFi signal was bad. The location was quite far... More

İt was absolutely great. Better than many hotels wich are way more expensive. Clean, quiet, cheap 18€, and you have great breakfast in the morning. Also you have a great view of wien. İt is a little bit far but not that much. The bus stop infront of it .

After staying in four hostels and an AirBnB about 12 times over the years, I rate this one very highly because of the level of service I experienced myself, the cleanliness, security, how things worked, and the great breakfast which would actually cost about 15 Euros at a cafe. Where else can you go back for more withlit an added... More

This is the hostel we always pick when we visit Vienna. We found it by accident and now we're glad we did. It's true that the building and rooms have seen better days and that the staff could be a tiny bit friendlier, but for me, the location makes it up for it. This hostel is for those who arrive...

It was a coincidence that I got to know the Palace Hostel, and it has become a place that I come back to again and again. Yes, there is the great garden with the scenic view, the vinyards and palace nearby, the fresh air while it's hot in the city centre. But what makes the Palace Hostel unique are the... More

Staying in Ottakring

Neighborhood Profile
The production site of popular Ottakringer beer brews up an exciting mix of working and middle class suburbs, Balkanese immigrant lifestyles, and lush patches of hilly woodland. The recently gentrified area around Yppenplatz and Brunnenmarkt boasts hip cafés and bars next to South East European delicacies at Brunnenmarkt street market. The dynamics of Ottakring become most apparent at its vibrant high street Ottakringer Strasse. At the top end you can feast on wine and local food in Austria’s oldest wine tavern 10er Marie. The wines are from the tavern’s own urban vineyards. Before you head upwards, make sure you pay a visit to the historic courtyards between Lerchenfelder Gürtel and Hippgasse. When locals visit Ottakring’s hilly green outskirts on the weekends they either climb up 31 meters of Jubiläumswarte viewing tower on Gallitzinberg, have a succulent Wiener Schnitzel at Villa Aurora, or reward their hiking exertions around Wilhelminenberg with a drink and a view from Wilhelminenberg Palace (now a hotel and restaurant).
