This is truly the most wonderful place to stay. I had a once in a lifetime experience staying there. All of these 100% ratings are not a joke. The experience is that of staying in a cozy apartment, only you share it with friendly guests. Lily (spelling? sorry!) is as friendly and accommodating as can be!

Best hostel I have ever stayed at. Lilly (or Lillie) was the most incredible host; so kind, caring, knowledgable, and genuinely sweet! The people staying there were fantastic too. VERY clean, comfortable, safe, and close to anywhere you need to go in the city. She recommended some awesome places to visit -- go to Amerling cafe/restaurant, for sure! Couldn't have asked for a more pleasant hostel experience. Thank you, Lilly (Lillie)!
Believe it or Not is hands down the best hostel in Vienna! Lilly is the sweetest - she was so accommodating, warm and just the all-around best host you could ask for! The hostel is impeccably clean and centrally located for anything you want to do in the city. Don't stay anywhere else, this place is perfect!
Absolutely the greatest hostel I have stayed in. Lily is the coolest! The atmosphere of the hostel leads to a beautiful community atmosphere and I made several very good friends during my stay. Did I mention that Lily is awesome? Everything is accounted for here. The little things you forgot on your trip and the little luxuries you are without (iron, fabric softener, real shower, hair dryer, sewing kit) are all here. HIGHLY recommended.
Everything about this hostel is absolutely amazing! I can't wait to come back! I wish every hostel was as amazing as this one!
They make u feel like at home. It makes a very good atmosphere to meet new people!
This is more of an open apartment than a hostel, and it's great. You feel like you have a home to go back to every night. Location is ideal for those who like walking; it's about 10-15 minutes walk to the ringstrasse and super easy to get back. And Lily is an excellent source for all things local). All in all it's a very solid home base for exploring Vienna. If you do laundry, remember to actually take it out.
I had a wonderful time in this hostel. I have nothing but good things to say about it. :)
