After a stay in a crappy hostel in Venice, Hostel Hütteldorf in Vienna was practically luxurious. The staff were friendly and there is a pitcher of water at reception (really convenient when you've come back for the night after drinking). The rooms are big and come with a table and chairs, tall lockers, lots of shelves and cupboards around each bed, and even a little entrance closet where you can hang up your towels. If you're staying a bit longer you could probably unpack your entire bag into all the storage they have. The beds were a bit small but you could still get a good night's sleep in them.
There is a big cafeteria with free breakfast, which was actually quite tasty - fruit, yogurt, cereal, different breads with jam and hazelnut spread. Bathrooms are clean unless the guests get everything wet, which was the case while we were there. At night the windows were open so the lights attracted bugs, so when the counters were covered in water the bugs would get trapped which was pretty disgusting. There are three showers per 5- or 6-room floor, which was enough except for when a school group occupied all 18 showers at once before their trip home. The showers are a decent size, with a bench to keep your clothes and towels separated from the shower itself. The shower was strong enough although the angle made it a bit awkward to wash legs or feet.
The location is probably the biggest flaw with this hostel, as it's not close to the heart of the city. However, there's an underground station a few minutes away down a hill where you can get to touristy places fairly quickly. There are also night buses that stop a bit further away.
If you don't mind the trip to get into the city, I highly recommend it.
