Our room was smelling constantly of smoke and something i can't really describe...The bathroom was stinking all the time and it didn't seem like they cleaned our room or our bathroom during the three days we were staying there. The worst: the toilet seat was literally falling apart into 3 pieces! I couln't stand being in the bathroom! :-(

This is the first negative feedback I've given in my 10 consecutive hostel stays all over the world. We were put in a seperate building The Internet didn't work unless we sat in reception No common room Felt in welcome in reception Private double room had kitchen that wasn't functional and smelled like a public toilet block Room had very little heating went to the cinema in the evenings or mcdonalds as it was warmer there and at least we had free wifi couldn't wait to leave!

Very pacefool place

The staff was nice but it seems to be more of a place where migrant workers spend the night while staying in Vienna. Still it was very affordable and I wasn't murdered in my sleep. So, yay!

Although I was just for one night I found the hostel a really good place for either weekend break or vacation as the atmosphere was excellent , clean and the location with easy access to the city's different touristic places. Will recommend anyone, hope to visit again and receive this warming welcome from the lovely staff

Friendly and helpful staffs. Found some pieces of hair on a prepared towel but otherwise clean room and facilities. Excellent location (safe, only a couple of blocks away from the main shopping street and Westbahnhof) -- highly recommended hostel in terms of its value for the money!

Fantastic apartment! It was absolutely huge with loads of character and facilities. On the third floor so great view as well, we were able to watch the New Years fireworks from the lounge window. Really friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Really quiet and secure. We would definitely recommend this hostel as absolutely fabulous value for money. Thank you so much Happy Hostel!

Closed to the city centre, at 5 min walking to the subway and to Mariahilferstrasse. The room was clean and the staff was very kind and nice. The furniture and the room were old, but in the complex I had a nice staying at this hostel.

Very nice and helpful staff! The apartments have big extra room with kitchen and common area, toilet and shower, and in the sleeping room is enough space with couch and table. Good choice for short trips to Vienna, the subway is just minutes away. Maybe not that recommendable if traveling alone and want to meet people, due to missing common space for all guests, but great for groups.

The hostel is located in a great neighborhood, close to the underground. We were fairly satisfied with everything, except one staff member, who dealt with our booking, and did not speak any English. The rest was just fine and we would recommend the hostel.
