It was an excellent place, absolute value for money winner. 5 min walk away from the Prater and the subway, various stores nearby. There wasn't a kitchen, but you can freely use the bar in the lobby, which provides all the basic necessities, also offer free coffee and tea; there isn't anybody from the staff to keep an eye on you, which makes it very comfortable to use, yet most of the times there is somebody on the check-in desk if you need them. Extremely helpful receptionist girl from LA!

One of the best hostels we have been! It really looks like a hotel because it must have been once and now was turned into a hostel. Big entrance hall and living room where you can have free coffees, teas but there isn't a hostel atmosphere. The room was gigantic and beds, pillows and linen were really comfortable. Bathroom inside (twin bedroom). It was has a fridge, microwave and lots of space to store stuff. Staff was at the reception at a regular schedule (10-23 more or less) and it was nice.


Lovely break from the hectic hostel life! Nice and relaxed.


FYI this is a student residence during the school year... just to give you an idea of what its like. I did the "2 person mixed dorm". It is a college dorm with its own washroom and fridge. PennyMarkt nearby and U-Bahn is only 7min walk. About 25min walk to Innere Stadt. No atmosphere really, however there is a "lounge" you can use. Stay was fine, would stay again but first might try another place.


The room wasn't very clean, and though there was a waterboiler for tea in the room, we didn't have any cups or alike, so what's the point of a tea kitchen then.


This hostel is more like an excellent hotel. The building and the facilities are awesome. Everything was clean. Rooms were well-equipped. Coffee for free. Staff was nice. Easily accessible by metro. I would definitely recommend this hostel especially for couples and people looking for quality.


I cannot reccommend this place highly enough. So far it has been the best hostel I have stayed in (even better than some hotels). I ended up staying here an extra couple of days and treatings this place as a "Hub" for Salzburg, Budapest, and Bratislava. If you are going to any city near to Vienna (especially for interrailers / eurrailers) I would suggest staying here and just commute to the different cities.
