There's nothing bad that can be mentioned of this hotel. The staff are friendly, helpful and informative. The rooms are good and safety lockers obtainable for a deposit of 5 euros. Lots of space in the common room where you are able to sit, drink and play pool (1 euro per game). Location: it's quite close to a high street... More

Very well located, its a hostel that looks like a hotel. Very clean and confortable, and was nice to sleep in a bed that wasn't a bunk bed. Staff very nice and friendly, they do everything they can do help. Only bad thing was that we had to change rooms on the second night (we stayed two nights) but beside... More

Hotel is exactly as advertised. Basic, clean, cheap and convenient. We saw a mix of families and student-age travelers at this location. Not a party crowd. Everyone seemed very respectful, stayed quiet, and minded their own business. Front desk was pleasant and efficient. Our room was spacious, and comparatively clean. New towels came when requested. Fantastic location literally around corner... More

Ideal for travellers and groups, the hostel was located just a minute walk from the underground station, and surrounded by supermarkets and cafés. Staff is really friendly: Agnes was without a doubt our favourite receptionist, so don't hesitate to go talk to her - she is always smiley and speaks perfect English! Only downer though: the lack of lockers in... More

Very nice hotel located in the centre of a busy District of Vienna. The area has loads of shops etc right outside the hotel. However, it is not the main 'touristy' part of Vienna. To walk to the main centre it takes around 20 minutes. Overall we were happy with our stay in Vienna. The only downside is the lack... More

I stayed here for four nights with a friend whilst travelling Europe and we had the four worst night's sleep here. The room is really hot so we had to leave the window open and all the street noise could be heard, even from the third floor. The bunk beds in the 6 bed dorm were extremely noisy and made... More

Decent hotel, close to subway station. Large room, quiet area. Downside expensive breakfast, which is why we didn't bother having it, might as well go to bakery down the street. Good friendly personnel at the reception.

A friend and I stayed here for three nights during our Euro interailing trip.

We stayed for 2 nights in a family room of 4. Good price for a clean and basic room. Nice breakfast, not included in room price. Free wifi. Like a youth hostel. 2 minutes walk from keplerplatz metro station. Friendly staff.
