This hotel/hostel was great. For starters, easily accesiable if the underground would have been running, The improvements they are making on the Sudbahnhoff made it a bit difficult for us. Traveling with my mom, 77yo and my daoughter 10yo.

Just about 1/2 block from the metro stop. Stores galore within just a few minutes walk, grocery, pharmacy etc. Just a short walk to the tram stop.

The hostel was immaculate. The bedding was white and crisp. Not a speck of dirt on the floor in our room. (I am always barefoot) The halls were quiet, the receptionist kind, friendly and helpful. Wifi worked fine even in the room. Never did check out the kitchen, but I suspect it matched the rest of the place. Clean

A definite recommendation...will stay there again.

I already recommended this hotel at my friends who ever want to come to Vienna. And when I go to Vienna next time I will surely stay in this same hotel. It is not so expansive. It has a kitchen, good service. And it is close to supermarket and bakery wich are open very early. The hotel is also not far away from tramstation, where are driving trams at least every 5 minutes! And also a garage underground where your car can stay savely during your staying in the hotel. For me this hotel was great!

Nice hotel, not to far from the city centre (but tram/metro is needed), which will be really close the Vienna main train station once they finish it.
The hotel is basic, clean bed linen and towels, 2 person room is big enough with a closet, small couch and table with TV. Wifi in the lobby is free, if you want it in your room it is paid.
The Hotel/hostel also has dorms, breakfast and a guest kitchen with washing machine.

We were at the top floor below the roof, which wasn't very comfy when the temperature was above 30 degrees celsius. Overall it was a good stay for the price we paid. Staff is very nice and speaks at least english and german, and were happy to advise us on which trams/metros to take and what to see.

My family stayed in the hotel on August 2012. We had a room for 5 person, one double bed and 3 single beds (including a two-floor bed).
The room is very basic, and so is the hotel itself, the lobby etc.
It is aimed mainly for young guests, but we saw their older people (like ourselves...) as well.
The price is good, and the rooms are clean and quite.
Overall, if you are planning to visit Vienna and only sleep at the hotel - very recommended.

Walking distance (over the bridge) to city center. WiFi only in Lobby bar. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was perfectly fine and clean though lacked character. This is hotel for young and not very young people. There isn`t noise and crying people.
