Although this hostel wasn't my first choice for Vienna, I was extremely happy with the place! I stayed in a double room, which was very clean, although small. There was a bathroom immediately outside of my room, which was almost like having one to myself. Although the place was full, I never had to wait for the toilet or shower. It seemed like the bathrooms were constantly being cleaned, and the breakfast that was offered (for 2.50 euros) was excellent - freshly baked bread, jam, butter, and coffee/tea. The location was excellent, both close to the train station, public transportation, and a major shopping street in town.
The kitchen was TINY, which wasn't a problem for me, but it might be for someone who plans to cook a lot. There also didn't appear to be any common/TV room; the pretty courtyard out back was the only place for socializing. The internet service was extremely reliable and quite fast, although it cost 2 euros for 25mins.
Overall, definitely a great place to stay in Vienna!!
