“Good location, decent price for Vienna, very clean but smoky rooms.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Do Step Inn has a great location for backpackers as it is a 2 minute walk from the train station. It is also situated between Schonunbrunn Palace/Vienna Zoo and the old city centre. We were able to walk to both centres fine.

Staff were friendly and let us stow luggage before check in and have us access to shower facilities.

The rooms were a reasonable size but maybe on the smaller side of average. They were spotless but we did have two complaints. The first was that the room smelt strongly of smoke. The second was that the bed frame was broken. The bed itself was comfortable enough for sleeping on.

Facilities were great with lots of very clean toilets as bathrooms and a large kitchen and social space.

Vienna is an expensive city and Do Step Inn is definitely an option to make it affordable.

Worst hostel I have stayed in so far. Private rooms were terribly small with one little fan reaching only one of three people. The staff were so unhelpful when it came to this as well as where to eat etc. on top of all this 2 of our iPads were stollen from a locked bag that we left in the locker room for the day. And the staff simply said there was nothing they could do. A last minute booking and I now understand perfectly why they had availability

We stayed here with my boyfriend one night but I guess we can recommend it to other travellers since it's a safe clean place for decent money. If you travel by car, you can leave it in the front of the hostel for the whole day paying 5.8 eur. It's an advantage. The room was cosy, the bathroom was very clean. Bed was huge, comfortable. There is a tv in the room and a fan (no AC), but it was ok for us since that day wasn't hot. And there is free wifi not only in the hostel, but in whole city, and it works really fast. Vienna is a beautiful city. We trully recommend visiting Vienna and staying in Do Step Inn.

Room Tip: A tip for Poles: in the hostel works a lady from Poland, so if you're not fluent in German or En...

We (three friends backpacking) stayed here for four nights and loved it! The location was good, really close to Westbanhof (where there is a large, well priced supermarket) and then not long into the city via train. It was also really easy to find from the train station. We had a triple room that was actually very spacious from what we had been used too and it was also very clean and included towels are always a bonus. The WiFi was super, very quick and worked everywhere in the hostel. The kitchen had good facilities but quite dirty. The shower was just the hose part, with no head.. Which caused a few laughs but wasn't too bad. Though it is not exactly a "hostel atmosphere" it is very comfortable. The staff are also really helpful and knowledgeable. Pretty decently priced so I would definitely recommend.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a double room at the Do Step Inn hostel and paid a reasonably cheap amount for 3 nights.
We had a fantastic stay - our room was lovely, if a little on the small side. Very comfortable bed, flat screen TV on the wall opposite the bed, good bathroom, again if anything a little on the small side.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. Always on hand to ensure you have a great stay at the hostel but also in Vienna. They advised us of a great place for lunch the day we arrived. Breakfast not included in price but available on request for about 3 Euros.
Downside was location - good 40 minute walk into downtown Vienna but we didint mind because we felt our experience in Vienna was heightened by our stay at Do Step Inn.

The hostel itself is clean and nice enough. Location close to train station but a bit of a walk to main town part. Staff were quite helpful and showed us tips and things on the map, where to eat, drink and party. DEFINITELY GO TO TRAVELLER'S SHACK PUB CRAWL- best one we went on throughout eastern europe. However, the hostel was far too big, making it difficult to meet people and make friends. The kitchen itself was modern, yet wasn't a usable communal area and there was only a tiny living space (just 2 sofas) not enough for the hundreds of rooms. Decent breakfast for 7 euros, but a bit pricey. very loud roadworks outside woke us early from our hangover! Ideal for a budget night if your happy to do your own thing, but not great for a longer stay or if your looking to socialize.

I unexpectedly had to stay for few nights in Vienna and first one was at Do Step In.
Staff is very friendly, rooms were comfy and clean, free wifi, shared kitchen for all guests was nice surprise but was a bit expensive for what you get.
