“Shame about the smoking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

The room was good enough and ensuite. Good location. Some of the staff were a bit sullen though - definitely not 'red carpet' stuff. Was dismayed to find smoking allowed in the bar with some customers and staff smoking. The 10pm 'curfew' for noise outside wasn't enforced either and the street out front was noisy until nearly midnight. There are clubs and pubs galore nearby for those who want to shout so some respect would be nice. All in all, for the experience its too dear.

The location is great, quiet and close to Westbahnhof which makes it very easy to get in Vienna with the subway (which is very efficient by the way).

The rooms are comfortable (and there's a fridge in the room !), the kitchen is great (and there's a food store 10 mins away from the hostel), the staff is very friendly and willing to help.

Overall the place is clean, quiet, there's a bar where you can meet other travelers etc... basically it's a great place to stay !

The location is very good- 15 minutes to go to the center ore 1 minute from metro that can take you anywhere you want
Very friendly workers that helped us every time we needed it
Clean rooms and quite area -we could not ask for more for the money we paid
I would stay here again!
The only bad thing is the restaurant that is opposite to the hostel which name is Wladimir :)
We ate there awful Russion food and it cost a huge amount of money-stay away of this restaurant!

This is an interesting place...you walk down the street and you think...mmm...small street and doesn't look great. However, it's a really , really good place to stay! The rooms are clean (nice clean sheets) and the atmosphere here is very good. Free wireless in the bar/lobby and lots of nice people. The price is great and it's just next to the subway line. This is is good place with friendly staff and a great mix of travellers. Would come here again.

Was really worth the money. We arrived at Westbahnhof and it was right nearby the station. The receptionist told us where to go and was cute too ;) all together: Vienna is great, staying at red carpet makes it even better!
