Extremely clean and functional room. Common room nice with a big screen for the world cup. A bit out of the way but the transport connections are excellent!


The room was bigger than I expected and fully furnished. Really close to a subway station. The only downside was mold on the bathroom ceiling.


The shittiest Hostel i have ever stayed.The stuff was too unfrienldly and not helpfull.They dont deserve this money at all.Wifi doesnt work.Shower was broken.Quality was too low.The hostel smells like hospital and too dirty.


Very basic accommodation! Part of the shower door was missing! Room was not cleaned while we were there! No mats on bathroom floor till I asked. No TV till I asked! (and then it was the smallest possible one can find!!) but, worst of all, no WiFi in bedrooms, when on the initial hotel description it said there was WiFi in all bedrooms!! AWFUL place!!!!

Had to kill multiple insects, horrible wifi connection and very limited, dirty reception area. Toilet didn't not work, hair and dust on desk and chair.


It had the feeling of being a little run-down, but it was clean and comfortable and everything worked as it should. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hostel is just a five minute walk from an underground station, and 3 underground stops from the city centre, so quite easy to get to, and in a quiet area.


GOOD: The room was big and nice. The hostel is located close to the underground. BAD: The room was never cleaned. Internet LAN did not work in the room.

Cheap but comfortable hostel. the room was ok and clean. Towels and bed sheets were provided. The staff was very kind and helpful. However, there is no wifi in the room (only in the lobby) and the "relax" room was not very agreable (people smoke inside, no plug for laptop and not open all the time). I still recommand this hostel regarding to the price.


Very nice place, you can park here on weekends for free in Vienna, near the center, beautiful environement, room looked ok, we bought with shared showers but got our own :)

'Relax' bar has a lot of potential. Great to see the big screen being used when the football was on. The room felt like someone's lounge room with lots of stuff (TVs, kettles, old furniture, ect) pilling up in the corners.


We had a nice stay at Hostel 4. The only negative is it has older appliances and feels slightly out of date. The room was clean and the bathroom was clean. The hostel owner stayed up late for us because our flight was delayed (we emailed him ahead of time) so that was very nice. It's probably a 35 minute walk to the center but is right next to the metro that is a quick ride to the center. There is internet on the main level and not in the rooms. It was a good deal and a pleasant experience.

The cleanliness, security and locations was OK, but they didn't gave to us the room that we had booked, which was a double bed ensuite, they gave to us 2 single beds ensuite. We told them that we had booked other kind of room, but the answered to us that "they were fully booked, they don't have a room as we had booked and that even some people did not get any room, so we were lucky for get a room!!!


It's nice and comfortable place to stay. It looks much more like dormitory but rooms are clean, location is perfect and staff is quite polite. There is wi-fi only in the reception room which is a little bit uncomfortable but after all it's very good place for its price.


Hostel 4 is less like a hostel but more like a lower ranked hotel. If you wish to have some private atmosphere, this is where you should head to. It would have been miles better if wifi is available in rooms.


A nice Hostel, with very nice and helpfull staff! Would come back there for sure!!!


It worth the money overall. It will be much better if the room has wifi.
