“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

My girlfriend, her parents, and I stayed at this pension. The location is incredible especially for the price. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was quite nice. I would highly recommend this place.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Our room was just lovely. Large room with a sitting area and plenty of space to leave our suitcases open (a first on our Eastern European trip). The bathroom had whimsical tiles that I really loved and a very good shower. No bar soap was our only complaint.
The elevator is only large enough to fit 2 people with one suitcase a piece and misses the floors by 1/2 a level so if you are carrying a lot this could be a problem. Breakfast is in a pleasant room visited by the owners adorable dog. The staff is friendly and helpful. We had an early morning flight and they helped us pack food for the next morning.
The location was quite good for a first time visitor to the city and the directions they gave were perfect.

My wife and I have stayed at the Wild over a number of years - firstly as poor backpackers, then as middle aged cyclists and now as ... err. oldish, well healed travellers of an independent disposition. We mostly use Vienna as a base for our trips to Europe because it is so easy to arrive and depart from - and the Wild on Langegasse is always a part of the plan. The location is as good as it gets and Josefstadt is a fascinating part of the city to explore in its own right (don't neglect its many hidden cafes, shops, squares and attractions) ... and its just a 5 minute walk from the centre of town. Peter immediately remembered and welcomed us - the perfect hotel manager who keeps a close eye on maintaining standards. The Wild has actually got better over the years - this time, double rooms refitted with nice bathrooms - some with a loo, others shared but just out on the landing ... and always cheap: we payed 69 Euro a night! The breakfasts are hearty and generous. The breakfast room is a very pleasant place to meet others. The Wild attracts a varied crowd ... but I agree with the reviewer below who was a bit non-plussed by the hoopla made about this being a "Gay hotel" (whatever that means?). Gay, straight, young, old, black, white, conservative, radical --- and all shades in between --- it's all here (as it is in the World). A great hotel, in a great part of one of the world's most beautiful and interesting cities. Stay here!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights and were very comfortable here. The rooms were modern, well-furnished and very clean. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. I loved the breakfasts also, very fresh and something for everyone. Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful.
Reading previous reviews I wondered about what some reviewers called a "gay-theme" to the hotel. We are a straight couple and traveling with our children so I wondered if we would be a distinct minority. Absolutely nothing to worry about, the hotel is gay friendly but there is nothing "gay-themed" about it (whatever that means) and the people who stay there, judging by who we saw at breakfast are a varied lot.
My only mild complaint is that the carpeting in our room could stand to be replaced and as others have mentioned the tenant on the 3rd floor who smokes makes the stairwell smell like smoke at times but it didn't filter into the rooms or even into the hallways where the rooms are located and you can always take the elevator to get away from the smell.
I would most definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed in a luxury double room, and it was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The water pressure and temperature in the shower were very good. The bed was very comfortable - even though it had the typical Tyrolean 2 mattresses pushed together, there was a single frame, so you could hardly feel the gap at all (and there was no worry that the beds would separate in the middle of the night!).

A hair dryer can be borrowed from the front desk.

The owner, Peter, is extremely friendly and willing to offer lots of helpful information about the area. The breakfast was a continental selection of meats, cheeses, rolls, hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruits, juices, and yogurt and cereals. The location of the hotel is excellent for sightseeing.

The only drawback is that there's a guy who lives on the third floor (not related to the hotel) who smokes in the stairwell. However, this doesn't affect the rooms, and you can avoid most of the smoke by taking the elevator.

I will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Vienna, and would highly recommend this pension.

My partner and I stayed at this beautiful pension from 15th to 19th march. We enjoyed the hospitality offered by peter and his very friendly staff. Its superbly located and spotlessly clean and modern. It has free wifi also. Breakfast is included (continental) and the fare on offer is varied and fresh. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.
