I had a great time visiting Vienna and staying at this hostel/hotel. The rooms/showers were reasonably clean and quiet during the night. The reception/bar staff (Malcolm, Stefan and Max) were super helpful and gave me tons of ideas for things to do during my stay. It also helps that they are all quite attractive too ;-)! I would definitely recommend... More

Its a budget hotel, you get a reasonable bed in a reasonable room of reasonable size for a reasonable price in a reasonable location. Vienna centre is around 20 minutes away on the tube (door to door from hotel to city) so no problems there. The staff are great and helpful, the rooms are clean and tidy and they come... More

Dear guest, thanks for the Feedback ! We are happy you had a good time at our Hotel in Vienna.

rooms and location is good if you don't want to be far of the main station. If you want to go to the city centre, travelling with métro is recommended. BuT it's really easy. staff is very nice. Fridge is at disposal and a microwave, breakfast is not included and is way too pricey for what it is. my bathroom... More

Friendly, super helpful staff with excellent English. We turned up early to drop our bags in the luggage store, and went and had a great day in Vienna before returning to a clean and comfortable room. It's a way out of the city centre - we got a train from Wien HBF to Wien Mitte and it only takes 7... More

I was at the Meininger at Frankfurt, and it was some time before I realized this was the same outfit. I enjoyed my time there, and found the guests to be friendly and interesting. No comment on staff. There is a large seating area, and a nice courtyard. The weather was cool, or else I'd have enjoyed basking outside more.... More

I was checking this hotel out with my wife in advance of taking a student group to Vienna later in the year. It was exactly what I was hoping for. It's very well positioned: a little out of the centre of Vienna but close to the Hauptbahnhof, with an U-Bahn station almost next door and also within easy walking distance... More

The hostel is situated 10 min walk from the Hauptbahnhof. There's an underground station nearby. It's clean, the rooms are simple, the furniture is not very old. The bathroom in the room was fine. Nice place if you don't want to spend too much and stay only for few days.

We stayed there in November. It is really affordable hotel. The location is really good, with really 30 seconds away from the Metro station and only 3 stations away from the city center. Near the hotel is also very big shopping center, so you can shop there, if you don't have time to go somewhere else. Staff is really nice... More

Where to start? Besides the normal grossness like blood stained comforters, mold, and general filth, this place is extremely unsafe. The main entrance leads directly upstairs to the rooms without requiring a pass through the lobby, and the hallway doors and room doors, which technically have locks, do not automatically lock and have to be forcefully pulled/pushed shut behind you...

It's a well organized, clean and affordable hostel. The location is quite good as well, there's a metro station 50 mts from there, so you can get easily almost everywhere. Staff was really helpful and the all-you-can-eat breakfast was priceless.
