More like a B&B than hostel. Top end of the main shopping area, about a 30 minute walk to the main tourist area. Nice place, clean, breakfasts bought in the hostel help those in need in Africa!


Excellent hostel, good location, Mariahilfe strasse is getting perfect pedestrian area, very pleasant to pass through.

Toilet was broken, and it couldn't be repaired because I arrived on Friday night. The staff did offer me a different room, but not a single room like the one I had booked. My room was very spacious and it even had its own kitchen, bathroom and dining area (and even another single room within the single room! I couldn't figure out how to get hot water from my shower though.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and location was right next to main metro station. The room setup with the private kitchen was nice, however it was very dirty and there was food that had been left there for some time and really made it Smell. The bathrooms were moldy as well. If cleaned thoroughly this Could be a very good hostel.


It was freezing in my room but blanket was warm so it was impossible to sleep but not to hang in the room. Internet did not work well during those two days which I spend in the hostel. It was easy to find the hostel because of your good guidelines on the internet.

Happy Hostel was a perfect hostel- good location, friendly staff and helpful with maps/luggage storage. I would definitely recommend it to others, as well as stay again if I am in Vienna.
