We had a great time and would definitely recommend that cosy, practical and greatly decorated appartement. We enjoyed the care Lily took at making us feel welcomed and like at a friends' place. We met great people there. The kitchen allowed us to cook our food, definitely a plus!

In all my travels, I have never enjoyed my time at a hostel as much as I did at Believe-it-or-Not. It is basically a shared apartment which made it very easy to meet other travelers. It felt like a home for me while I was there. Lilly was amazing and was always extremely helpful. The location was great and the hostel was very clean and secure. It may be a little more expensive than some of the other hostels, but the perks and atmosphere that come with it made it well worth the price.

If you are a solo traveller and looking for somewhere in Vienna this should be your first choice. Its not a typical hostel but more so an appartment - its so easy to meet people and make friends there. Lilly is amazing - its the little things she does to make the place and your stay special. She even makes your bed for you. She even gives you a massive hug when you are leaving! In all my travels, this is probably my favourite place I have stayed, it really is something special.

Very unique place in a lively district of vienna in walking distance to the city center. The interior of the apartment is very comfy with incredible attention to detail. Lilly is amazing. However there is only one shower (actually two, but in the same bathtub, so that doesnt count :D) which can cause some waiting time in the mornings. The wooden floor squeaks with every step you make, and with 8 people in the room you wake up as soon as the first person starts to pack or go to the bathroom.

I am backpacking Europe for five months and this is the best place I have stayed in. Lily is an exceptional host and the apartment is immensely clean and comfortable. Don't bother looking anywhere else - this is your place!

Silly name aside, it was way too easy to fall in love with the place(and Lilly, of course) and it was way too difficult a decision to make to leave (I think I cried a little when Lilly hugged me goodbye) I don't know why people complain about the creaky floor; I loved it! It added personality and charm to the place.

Positives: super comfortable beds; decorated with amazing attention to detail; great location; SO CLEAN. Negatives: second toilet AND shower were broken, thus limiting ability to get ready quickly in the morning; really small, which is great with fewer guests but I cannot imagine what it would be like at full capacity; a bit expensive; I did not interact directly with Lily but my wife mentioned she made some odd/awkward comments to her regarding the facilities and payment.

This is not your typical hostel: it's an awesome apartment where a small amount of people are staying. The crowd you'll encounter there is also different from other hostels (almost no long term travellers). It's cool, has amazing facilities, and the owner is awesome, but it doesn't feel like an hostel. If that's a good or bad thing, it depends on what you're looking for ;)

Great atmosphere

Amazing place...really does feel like a home. Had better service there than at most hotels. Super comfy beds and Lilly straightens them daily, towels provided, essentials provided, really clean, etc. Would probably be nice to have more than one shower, and the floors are a bit squeaky (meaning hard to sneak around quietly), but wouldn't hesitate to recommend at all.

I really enjoyed my stay here, though keep in mind that this isn't your typical hostel; it's an apartment with two rooms, so don't come here expecting to find a hostel bar. The place has some real character, and the owner--the always energetic and supremely helpful Lily--has clearly put a lot of love into it. The only downside would be the creaky floors, but thats what you get when you book a place like this in such an historic city. Would definitely return.

Id been to other hostels in Vienna before coming to Believe it or not and this one was definitely my favorite. It's a more intimate space and so if meeting people is what you want to do then I can't think of a hostel that makes it easier. Like anyone whose stayed at this hostel will tell you the experience is made by Lily, the woman who runs it. Sure, there's some plumbing problems and the floorboards creak but it's all forgotten after a breakfast and coffee with her and some fellow travellers.

It is a bit strange coming and being checked in remotely, but the owner is really great in person. Super nice and even let me borrow her laptop for a day.

Good place to stay at, they make your bed each day and even fold your clothes. 1 of the 2 toilets is out of order, the floor boards squeak a lot, and it's sorta out of the way / short trip on tram/bus/bike. Great breakfasts and hosts.

Owner Comment (Hide)
toilet is fixed, there is nothing you can do about squeaking floorboards, it is an old historical building, and our location is top. sorry you do not step out onto stephansplatz, but trust me you dont want to be in the first district, it is tourist nightmare. we are tucked away in the heart of the coolest little district in vienna and only 7 min walk to city centre and surrounded by bus, trams and metro for the lazy peeps....

Lily is the best host I've ever had in a hostel. She keeps the place extremely clean and neat. The price is great, the location is perfect. Not much more to ask for really. When I told her my travel plans she made some excellent recommendations.

This place way great and Lily is amazing. It felt so homey. Everything is so clean. Lily is like the den mother - she really looks out for you. If I ever go back to Vienna this is the place I would stay, hands down and wouldn't even look at any other hostels. Everything is so clean. You get your own locker and keys. Breakfast is provided.
