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.

Very good value and not too far to walk or catch the train into the centre of Vienna. Here on a school visit - comfortable and warm. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable - nothing was too much trouble for them.

Looking for a cheap and central accommodation? This is a perfect option. It's cheap, clean, quite, well furnished with friendly staff. There were towels, hair dryer in the rooms, bathroom accessories, like shower gel, soup. It's close to central train station. Just a few metres far from Keplperplats metro station(red line), close to sightseeing Belveder palace, about 10minutes walk. And... More

It is a very nice place and I recommand it to everyone. The dorms were very clean and the staff were professional. It is not expensive and next to a train station.

You'd be hard pressed to even really call this a hostel, much closer to a hotel. Close to Metro so easy to get around Vienna. Good service, good clean rooms, good facilities, good price. Good value for money, definitely recommended. Stay here.
