No frills, comfy bed, good shower. It was all I generally look for in a hostel. Our group was fortunate enough to have our own room. The room was a ten person with only one bathroom, so I would definitely say that's its largest flaw. Other than that it was a good stay.

First of all, I would like to start by saying that the staff there was amazing, I can give them that. But the atmosphere itself in the hostel was not what I expected for the price. To top things off, one guy's iPad was stolen. So I would suggest you to consider staying at this place.

The hostel itself is simple, but good. I stayed 2 nights with a friend and we had a very nice time in Vienna. The room is quite simple for the price but the location is very good. The bonus was the receptionist guy that was really nice and helpful with us. I'm rating as very good because of him.

Dear guest! First we want to express our regret about what happened. Next we want to explain our point of view so there is no misunderstanding and remind you that your comment is offensive and unfair, since we did our best to help. It was YOU who gave the thief i.e. a stranger with no key access to the room,... More

This hostel was pretty good! Even without the full kitchen facilities you can make so many of your own meals. Friendly staff and many friendly people of different age groups! The beds are not too noisy and the bathrooms are good as well!! There is even a Christmas tree around this festive time of the year!

Big hotel converted into a hostel. Diverse guests of ALL ages.. Kitchen/common room seemed more of an after thought. Maybe 5-10 people using it on an average night I was there (100+ in the hostel total) Reliable and priced ok if you need a place.. if you're looking for a more youth hostel environment though, Vienna has better options (that...

A wonderful choice for my stay in Vienna. It was so conveniently located to anywhere I wanted to go, and I never once felt unsafe walking to/from by myself. The girls room & ensuite bathroom was clean. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Breakfast was simple. The common area was pleasant. If you're a lady traveler looking for a... More

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighborhood Profile
Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna and the center. One of the most historic sites in the area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theater decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.
