We were there for 3 days at the end of December. Had a private double with shared bathroom. We got a room in a small appartment of two locked rooms, a bathroom and a small kitchen corner. We were lucky cause there was noone else in the second room, so it was quiet. The room was clean and warm, a bit small but hey, it's a hostel. We got linen and towels. Bathroom was fine - there was an issue with hot water once but they fixed it quickly. We did not use the kitchen but it looked ok.
What we liked most is the location which is really close to the Westbanhof and it takes 15 mins to get to the centre by metro. But the small street is hard to find, so take a good look on the map.
What we did not like: when we got lost and I called the hostel, they guy at the reception spoke very poor English and was not able to help us. Which was just a small inconvenience but to add up to this - when we showed up he made me feel it was only my fault that I don't speak German and he couldn't communicate with me. When he learnt I was Polish, he kept comementing on how Austria is not like an Eastern poor country - I kept ignoring him but I guess he needed very much to show me I'm from a worse part of the world. Except for this guy, other people in the hostel were super nice.
