“Disappointing..”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

I would like to point the main disadvantages of this horrible place...

-No kitchen or fridge in the room
-5 euros for 1 day internet either you use it or not. Several disconnections and upper limit the 3Gb.
-5 euros for breakfast each day. The orange juice must had been with water.
-No cleaning service. Two days now and I have the same towels and I have a little spider as a company
-My room has a basin that has only hot water. And when I referred the problem to the manager he said ok and then he ignored the problem.
-Forgot my hair shampoo in the showers and then it was lost
-No aircondition
-You can hear all the doors etc in the morning
-Old furniture
-Not a single hanger in the closet
-No paper in the room. You have to take one from the toilet.
-Very expensive for what it offers.

Conclusion:
I expected a much better impression for what it costed me and
the reputation of Vienna.

Avoid it at all costs...

A complete let down. This hostel is a student halls. There is no kitchen, the rooms smell like an old church. It has the atmosphere of an old mental asylum. No common area so impossible to meet others. Stay away! However the location is nice.

I had to go to Viena for academic purposes, that's mean a cheap travel. The place is clean and relaxing. In your room you only have a bed, a desk and a place to wash your hands and teeth. Inside your room there's no a toilet neither a shower, so you have to go upstairs and take a shower. The shower is shared.

Maybe there's room with WC, but not mine.

The guy from the reception is really nice and helpful person. He gave a map and mark me all the important places to meet.

Its location is also very good because it's like three blocks away from the subway. The breakfast... well... it's no so good... really simple and it costs 5 euros.... really expensive.

Besides this, I would back, but only is I go alone or with some friend. With my wife I would find another place... something more romantic.

The wifi isn't free. The view from my room was fantastic. There's no room service. Breakfast is buffe style.

As a student living at he Porzellaneum in term time I would have to say that the current price (30 euros per night) is excellent value since it is extremely uncommon to get a private room at this price. Since i will recommend this place to visiting friends and have enjoyed living here I thought I should write a positive review.

The accommodation is basic but the rooms are clean and functional. Basically, exactly what I'd expect. In addition to this the hostel is in an excellent location, transport links are excellent and normal journey times are 10 minutes into the city or 20 to get out to some nice parks and forests in the 19th district.

As a functional no frills base to explore the city you wont do better, however those on a romantic getaway or business trip may want to consider spending a little more if elevators, double beds ect are a priority!

I was there for a conference and stayed there cause it was close to the university. I wouldn't stay there again. Toilets were smelly and communal showers provided no privacy. I was surprised by having towels tho.

This was one of my worst stay in a "hotel" ever!
At night it was very noisy because of drunk students who talked in the courtyard until approximately 3 am.
During the day it was very noisy because of the tram.

At first, i couldn't find the men showers until i realized i had to go to the upper floor.
The staff was extremly unfriendly and most of the time i couldn't find anyone at the reception.
The prize was not really high but still not worth it.

This converted dorm is clean and I slept well, but there were several downsides - (1) no elevator...the 6th floor was quite a long schlepp after a full day on the train (2) showers are in one large room with no partitions so one feel pretty exposed (3) internet is quite costly and very slow (4) lots of students drinking in the center courtyard late into the night. Would recommend only because it is cheap, clean and close to public transit - otherwise, it was a disappointment compared to other places I stayed during my month-long holiday in Europe.
