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.

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.
