We rented an apartment for three nights at the Happy Hostel. It was not very good in comparison to other hostels I've been to.
Happy Hostel is located near the Westbarnhof (train station) and is about a half hour walk to the city center. It's close to Vienna's main shopping street. There are several nearby subway stops, which were easy to use and efficient.
The apartment itself was very big, with a kitchen, separate toilet and bathroom, sitting room and bedroom. The main disappointment was that the apartment was not very clean. The toilet had a stale urine smell and the apartment in general smelled musty. We cleaned kitchen utensils both before and after use because they didn't seem clean.
That being said, it was handy having a kitchen to be able to prepare breakfasts and dinners (supermarkets are within walking distance). There was a big fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, and stove (the oven did not work). The kitchen was not well equipped, e.g. no chopping board or sharp knives, but you could make do with what was there.
The staff at the front desk are helpful and there is free internet both in the lobby and wi-fi in the rooms.
