Nice place in good location. Excellent value for money.

The room was basic but fine for what we needed. Felt very secure in the hostel and the location was great- not to far to walk to central attractions and right next yo a metro stop. Only downside was no wifi in the room, just in the kitchen several floors below.

Nice staff and very good value for the money!! Recommendable for couples but not for single travellers who look for company. WLAN was rather poor though although we stayed on the same floor as the router (apparently there are several floors).

On the outside, building and hallway look quite run down, but no worries: Rooms (Bedroom, kitchen, bathroom etc) very clean and spacious. Very helpful and friendly staff. Very(!) close to shopping streets (eg Mariahilfer Street), main station and subway! Had my own apartment with large, very well equipped kitchen and big fridge. Tv included. Towels included. On checkout day, could stay as long as I wished, so didn't have to hurry. Great value for the money. Would definitely come again!

The place is beauty iglù and the owner is a great person who has travelled all over the world, friendly fellow. I did appreciate her willingness of being helpful in such a way that really helped our vacation, a beautiful place and if I will return to Wien I will definitely come back!

We got room in the apartment composed of 2 rooms, kitchen and bathroom. It was very clean and rather spacious, however the walls are very thin and you can hear every sound from another room. Quite good location, easy reached by metro. Helpful staff gave us all information and map we needed, however only 1 person spoke English. Nevertheless we really enjoyed our stay.

no kitchen when we were expecting one which was very frustrating. Were asked by staff on arrival if we spoke german, english or spanish, so we said english and then were spoken to in german,even when we clearly didn't understand they persisted. The actual apartment itself was nice other than lack of kitchen however was much more expensive than equivalent hostels.

Amazing welcome from Arabella. Gave us maps and showed us what to see and how to get there. Very close to main train station and shopping street. Double room with bathroom was actually an apartment with kitchenette and balcony with view. Our washing was done free of charge and good Internet. Would stay again!

Awesome views from the balcony. Easy to locate from nearby metro station. Close to major sites, but far enough away to find economical shopping and dining.

Arabella was extremely helpful and nice to us, but it was difficult to communicate with the rest of the staff, because we didn´t know german. The decoration of the place was weird and the entrance of the building was a bit dark at night, but the beds were confortable. It´s just a 10 min walking to the center and a 5 min walking to Mariahilfer shops, which is very good, although you can find a not so nice area around de B&B. Anyway, Viena is a safe place, so it shouldn´t mind. Fair price!

We stayed here for 3 nights, and I just have to say that it was totally worth the money! The staff/owners made a very good first impression, telling us where to go/not go, showing the important bus/sub stations and lines. The room(s) were huge for the price we paid, we were 3 people but got a room for 4 people for the same price. On checkout day, we could stay as long as we wished, so we didn't have to hurry. nice! would definitely come again!

Arabella and her husband were wonderful. The guest house was exactly the type of place we wanted: spacious, clean, very private, and conveniently located. We used the nearby public transportation to go everywhere, and Arabella was so helpful every time we needed directions or recommendations. We most enjoyed the balcony with its nice view as a good place to relax after being out in the city all day. Grocery store nearby and it was nice to have our own kitchen. Definitely recommend!
