Average hostel packed with people so those who enjoy meeting new people won't be dissapointed (no one was talking to no one though since we all have new buddies in form of cells, tablets and laptops). It's clean, warm, the staff is good, for some reason i love the location although the hood seems kind of dodgy, but it' s... More

It was one of the best hotel experiences ever! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms in best condition, the hotel modern and clean. Excellent location, just a few meters from the Metro station. Overall, perfect value for money. If I stay there again? Definitely yes!

We stay in this hotel from time to time because it sometimes has great deals. The rooms are modern and clean, breakfast is good. The location is good, just next to a subway station, so it takes you about 15 minutes to get to downtown Vienna. Free Wifi and a TV, clean bathroom. The perfect place to stay when on... More

The property is conveniently located 2 mins away from the station. The room was large enough to accommodate 4 of us. Wifi connectivity was poor, but everything else was good. The attached bathroom was small but well equipped and neat.

This hostel is not in Vienna downtown but it did not matter to me because I like to walk and it takes only 20 minutes to city center. I always retuned with Metro, which costs 2,10 euros a ticket. They have a limited but good kitchen. The hostel is quiet, no buzz. The staff is friendly and helpful. I met... More

The hostel/hotel is in faxt close to the central station, but a little apart from the city center. The kitchen is not really a kitchen, but there is a microwave and a tiny refrigerator, plis dishes. Friendly staff, clean and quite spacious rooms with a toilet plus toilet/shower (at the hostel)

The hotel was located next to an underground station so was easy to find. The room was clean and comfortable. There is only one lift, which is quite slow so we had to wait everytime for it, being on the 6th floor. There no tea & coffee facilities in the room, which is a shame. There is no traditional "do...
