Reviewed February 11, 2014

It was one of the best hotel experiences ever! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms in best condition, the hotel modern and clean. Excellent location, just a few meters from the Metro station. Overall, perfect value for money. If I stay there again? Definitely yes!

We stay in this hotel from time to time because it sometimes has great deals. The rooms are modern and clean, breakfast is good. The location is good, just next to a subway station, so it takes you about 15 minutes to get to downtown Vienna. Free Wifi and a TV, clean bathroom. The perfect place to stay when on a budget trip.

This hostel is not in Vienna downtown but it did not matter to me because I like to walk and it takes only 20 minutes to city center. I always retuned with Metro, which costs 2,10 euros a ticket. They have a limited but good kitchen. The hostel is quiet, no buzz. The staff is friendly and helpful. I met interesting and friendly people there. Bed sheets and shower were always clean but the toilet was a bit smelly when I checked in, which I complained and they fixed it. They must also clean under the beds and overall on the floor, which were not clean. All in all, it is a good place to sleep. Within 5 walking minutes you will hit the baker and supermarkets Spar and Hoffer, buy your stuffs and prepare your breakfast. I heartily recommend this hostel to all people in the world looking for a budget and quiet place to sleep in Vienna, a city that proves that Europe is the best continent in the world to visit if you are looking for Art, Culture, Design, Great Artists, History, Architecture, Opera, Dance, Ballet and last but not the least, Shopping. No offense if you don't appreciate this. You can always choose another sunny destination and also relax and enjoy your travel.

The hostel/hotel is in faxt close to the central station, but a little apart from the city center. The kitchen is not really a kitchen, but there is a microwave and a tiny refrigerator, plis dishes. Friendly staff, clean and quite spacious rooms with a toilet plus toilet/shower (at the hostel)

The hotel was located next to an underground station so was easy to find. The room was clean and comfortable. There is only one lift, which is quite slow so we had to wait everytime for it, being on the 6th floor. There no tea & coffee facilities in the room, which is a shame. There is no traditional "do not disturb" signs on the doors, which meant that the cleaner walked in on us in bed at 9.30am, so im not sure how you are supposed to stop this happening really. For the price it is ok for a short stay
