Very close to westbahnhof station so it's very easy to get around the city. This hostel had good cheap drinks during happy hour. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Overall a great stay!

I really liked the hostel. The staff are super nice and ready to help with anything. It was easy to get to know people, as there was a general friendly atmosphere. The rooms are clean, as are bathroom and toilet, I didn't use the kitchen, so have no knowledge there. Great commonroom. Only one problem is the fact that the bunk beds are a little shaky, so if someone moves a lot on the bunk bed below/above, you will feel it quite a bit.

Perfect hostel. Massive rooms (completely silent at night), clean bathrooms, very friendly staff (seriously, everyone is great), and wifi worked perfectly everywhere. Loved the garden terrace and I think it's a nice layout to the hostel common area. Location is excellent, just by the station and pretty close to several supermarkets & takeaways. Not a party hostel, it's pretty chill with a very cheap bar so great for meeting people!

An amazing place with great atmosphere! There's also a kitchen with all the appliances you can think of. The common rooms/bar area is very open and so easy to meet other travelers. There's also a backpackers bar 2mins away where they are packed every night! Highly recommend this place :)

my second time living here, still excellent. Great breakfast and clean bathroom, even for a 10-person dorm, it's not so crowded probably due to low season. Excellent location too, as we just had to walk 5 mins from Westbahnhof, and the staff is very generous in lending hair-dryers and offering suggestions. Highly recommended.

bad story

Owner Comment (Hide)
A girl felt threatened by this male guest in one of our mixed dorms. As she described it, he acted rudely/aggressively when she tried to open her suitcase late at night. We offered him a free upgrade to a single room to diffuse the situation, but he took offense and checked out. We’re sorry about any hard feelings, but things like this happen and we can only try to help as best we can. When staying in a dorm make sure to bring your tolerance AND politeness and you will have a great time! :)

Although it was a little far from the city itself (a little over a mile walk) the staff was friendly and accommodating and the value was great!

THANK YOU for this great review! Just a word about that 'mile walk' - the lovely Mariahilferstrasse shopping avenue, a beloved Viennese hang-out newly transformed into a car-free urban paradise, begins at the Western Train Station (just around the corner from our house), and stretches all the way to the Museumsquartier, a stone’s throw away from the Imperial Palace & the very heart of medieval Vienna. In short, the ''walk into the center'' is really a tourist attraction in and of itself :).

I still envision hostels to be concrete bunkers with rows of bunkbeds, nor do I have any expectations about cleanliness or service. This hostel is nothing like that. Great courtyard (especially in the summer), reasonable breakfast, functional bar (with happy hours) to meet people. Good common areas, locker system and very knowledgeable and friendly staff. My experience was excellent, I was staying in a single room FYI. So go ahead stay here when you're in Vienna.

A very quick weekend trip to Vienna! The staff were great and very helpful, love the bar on premises and the courtyard out the back. The rooms were comfortable, including the beds, just thought the rooms could use a good clean, especially the floors. Overall I would stay again and recommend it.

We stayed 3 nights in a double room and actually we felt as locals in our own flat, located next door to the main building. Very calm and spacious the flat includes everything you need (kitchen, washing machine,...). We totally enjoyed our stay !!

I got a bunk bed, but there was no ladder to climb up into my bed. The toilets and showers are quite small, even for a skinny person. But all in all the value for money was ok.

The staff was truly wonderful. Their organization and ability to help you plan an itinerary were above and beyond.

One of the absolute best hostels in which I've ever stayed! The staff are super sweet, there's free tea available all the time, the beds are comfortable and clean, and everyone gets a locker included in the room! The location is convenient to loads of cool stuff as well, overall a total dream.
