Nice stay, clean & simple rooms. The room was very warm and as there was no way to open the window wide and no air conditioning we just had to suffer it. This was the only drawback.

The hostel was really tricky to find and the room wasn't clean at all, there was still belongings in there from other people that had left. The staff weren't very polite or helpful. The atmosphere wasn't great, and had a couple bed bug bites

Not a hostel to stay at if you want to meet other young people. Lots of kids around for school excursions but very clean and good, new facilities.

The hostel is built for warmth, which is great in the winter but in the summer it was miserable. The rooms don't ventilate well, they are hot and stuffy (even with the window open) and the reception isn't much better. The outside area closes at 22:00 due to noise control so there was no reprieve anywhere from the heat at night. The best part was a shower/toilet/lockers located inside each room. If it wasn't so hot I would be writing a much nicer review & I would stay here again in the future.

I will not stay again in this place or recommend to someone. They don't clean the room everyday. There were lots of young students making noise. And the WiFi is very slow in the night.

The Staff wasn't friendly and couldn't answer your questions about attractions around town. The Atmosphere was a bit of a mix, and it seamed more like a hotel then a Hostel. I wouldn't recommend this hostel unless all you need is a place to sleep near the main train station.

It was easy to find and a great place to spend to nights. It was a little stange that they sent up people to our already full (6bed dorm) room, because they didn't have control over how many people where there already. But all in all it was nice and we would consider going there again.

If you're a backpacker looking for fun in Vienna, this is not the place to stay. This is more of a budget hotel than hostel. Families and young students are the main demographic of this location. It is close to the main station, which makes it easy to go to the town center; however, the atmosphere of the direct surrounding area is dull and lackluster. The staff are not that great and I had the weirdest collective of roommates in my dorm. They were good people but I would have rather not.

felt more like a hotel than a hostel, 0 atmosphere, but location was great as it was only a couple of seconds away from the station. The directions given from the station were awful though as we went out the wrong exit and got really confused

Not great location, but close to main train station. This is more a cheap hotel than a hostel. I found it hard to meet people and there isn't any atmosphere. The staff was not that helpful.

Staff on reception was very slow. Had to wait around 20minutes to check in. Luggage room to put bag in on early arrival. Rooms were nice and had lockers in too. Shower was good but not cleaned daily. Neither were beds but we're comfy. Had a good stay for what was required.

The hostel in general had no ar circulation. It was unbearable. And they tried to give us a room with 6 people and the windows didn't open. It was the worst experience of my life.

I was the only one in my room that actually got charged for sheets which is frustrating. However it's a nice big building with huge rooms, lots of space ad very clean. The roof top area seemed nice however wasn't fully open while I was there. Nice place to stay!

Usually very clean and secure. Internet pretty solid. Mix of friendly and not as friendly staff. Went back and stayed again after going out of town- would recommend!

Hotel atmosphere but clean and well organised place

This hostel is a bit out of the city but close to the train station. Lots of kids/school trips come here which dampens the atmosphere. The facilities are really good though!
