Good quality and quite low price for being vienna. The 6 people rooms have the only problem of having 1 toilet. The lanundry is expensive but works well and the breakfast is really worth the price. Internet works bad in the rooms and in the hall is just ok. Very good connections to the centre and the area is not... More

It's clean , staffs are friendly. But everything additional need to pay eg breakfast , towel, padlock .....bit far from city centre , it's a location where u must get a travel pass. I gave 3 stars as I think there will be hostel with better deal with these qualities.

This place is underwhelming at every turn. The appearance is definitely nice enough and it is clean. The laundry machines also worked fine. The rest however... We rented 3 beds of a 4 bed room and I honestly don't think one more person could fit. This broom closet had a large light outside the window and the curtain didn't cover... More

Generally don't expect much of hostels, but for being the most expensive one we've stayed in yet, this was a disappointment. The rooms were tiny, the breakfast was pricy especially for what you got, the shower head shot outside of the shower, the wifi was atrocious (this was something they boasted about- having good wifi), the halls echo from all...

Cheap. really OK breakfast (5€). clean. friendly staff. nothing special, just OK. but the thing that really annoyed me was that you have to actually buy a shtty 3 € key for a locker ... my advice is to throw it away immediately because it isn't secure at all.

I would warmly recommend this hostel. There is also a lift, that it is not so common to find in a hostel. The location is good. You can reach the centre quickly using the underground. There is a subway station just 2-3 minutes walk from the hostel. In that area there is more than a chain where you can have... More

Pretty close to shopping center Columbus. Clean and nice. The lobby and buffet area was very impressive. There's also small breakfast buffet. You can buy some useful items for those who travel with budget or backpack travelers from the lobby like travel size shampoo and small lock and key. Also staff was helpful and cool. I stayed there for one... More

I would warmly recommend this hostel for a low budget travel. The location is OK, near a subway station and not far away from the central railway station and Belvedere Castle. Although small, the room was clean and tidy, the hostel personnel very friendly and we had a great time, without any inconvenience. Hard to tell if we could find... More
