I tend to find hostels can be a bit hit and miss but I would say this one is more of a hit.
The location is very good, near to the Westbahnhof train station from where you can travel anywhere on Vienna's excellent public transport system. Stephansplatz is also walkable in 25-30 mins for those who enjoy that.
I stayed in a single room and found there was plenty of space. The room was basic, but, I expected that given the price. I found especially on the weekend the corridors were quite noisy with people coming and going although again I expected this in a hostel.
There is a large common room downstairs which has free internet access. However, I was slightly disappointed as most of the other travellers didn't seem too interested in mingling with others, maybe it was just me!
Overall it is a reasonably priced, clean option with a good location to go out and explore this wonderful city.
