As in other reviews, it is worth noting that this is effectively a budget hotel rather than a hostel. As such, it represents very good value. It is a fair way out of the city centre, but is quite easy to get to as it is a short walk from the Sterneckstrasse stop on the no. 2 bus route.
It is a little let down by the length you sometimes need to wait to be served at reception, as there are only one or two staff to serve any arrivals/departures/requests for info, as well as to man the bar. I also experienced difficulty accessing the internet from our room, despite the fact that wi-fi is supposed to be accessible throughout the building, and you are even provided with a second username and password to access the system from your room.
That apart, our experience of the hotel was very positive. It is a welcoming environment, the staff are very helpful, the room was spacious and clean, complete with an en suite shower room, and the view from our room was spectacular. The rooms are also air-conditioned, which was a nice (but necessary) surprise, but the large windows also open. For the standard of accommodation it was also extremely good value.
Another bonus was that the hotel is also just along the road from the Brauhaus Furbergs, which I would definitely recommend you take the opportunity to visit.
