Had a great stay at this hostel. Everything was really clean felt really safe! The staff were great really helpful and caring! And the location is just a walk away from all the beautiful sights! Vienna was beautiful!

The atmosphere of this hostel was really great, very easy to meet people. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. It is a bit outside of the city, but very close to the main train station and also not too far from the palace so it was actually in a great spot. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Great hostel, massive rooms, good atmosphere in the common room especially during happy hour! The garden is really nice too. Would definitely recommend, it's not right in the centre but very close to the metro station so easy enough to get in.

Fantastic hostel! Highly recommend. They have thought of everything, from homemade lemonade, advice board at reception, to information about getting everywhere in Vienna. There is a bar, great courtyard, great for solo travelers. Staff were fantastic and really friendly. I have nothing bad to say about this hostel, and I would stay again.

Friendly staff, location is ok (near the Summer palace), you may wash/dry your clothes for a little value. They offer a good value breakfast and some free food as well. Not a party hostel, however the atmosphere is nice for meeting people. Would stay there again.

The best hostel I've ever stayed in and probably ever will! 5/5 on everything apart from location which is 4/5 - it's a bit far from the centre but really near the metro to get there. I had an amazing time and will definitely be going back in the future!

Don't believe all the Wombats hype. This is a great hostel with good facilities, lockers and plug sockets in each room. Bar was really good and lively, cool garden too. Would definitely stay here again.

Friendly and helpful staff, small, quiet, clean and very conveniently located. I would definitely stay there again.

It was really good, but the atmosphere was not as lively and vibrant as other hostels. This is because there were a lot of older people and families also in the hostel and bar and kitchen, so it didn't have that young traveller feel to it. It's not a bad thing, just not the atmosphere for young people who want to socialise.

Hey, thanks for your review! It sounds like you hit a bit of an off night - we do welcome travellers of all ages here, but still our bar is usually full of young-folks-on-the-road, getting to know eachother & generally creating a night to remember. Come back again sometime, maybe for one of our free in-house concerts, and see if we can't change that not-so-vibrant first impression!

This hostel fully deserves its accolades as the staff were very friendly and were available 24/7. Understandably busy with a wide variety of guests (solo, groups, families). Great sociable atmosphere with the courtyard and also with the hostel bar so it was pretty easy to get to know people. A bit of a distance to the inner city but close enough to the U-bahn. Highly recommended.

Big thanks guys to a great run hostel Your staff are so friendly - the smiles are a welcome change to so many on the road Your facilities (games/guitars/guides) where amazing Keep up the good job! The hostel is one of the best out there From the welcoming and helpfull staff to the free games, guitars, guides... That coupled with the great environment it provides backpackers to mix, chill and chat makes the hostel a true winner!

Nice friendly hostel with a very homey vibe. Nice chill out areas with big common areas where you can read a book, relax in the courtyard or play their piano or guitar, so easy to strike up a conversation with other travellers. Staff are all very friendly, make you feel welcome and are helpful, especially Eliska. Only real downside was showers were fairly basic and only one on our floor. Would happily stay here again. Much nicer than the big, soulless chain hostels

Really nice and chilled hostel. Great facilities and liked the locker in the room available. The only thing I didn't like was having to make our own beds. Not because I'm not willing to, just because some people got into the room in the middle of the night like 2am and where causing a racket and having to turn the lights on to make the bed.

Ah yes, the trials and tribulations of dorm life! Sorry about that - we try to encourage folks to check in at a reasonable hour, but the occasional I-missed-my-train straggler does stumble through our doors ;). Of course we do offer made-up beds in our private rooms, perhaps an option for your next visit? Thanks for your review, and happy travelling!!!

I have stayed at many hostels in the past 14 weeks. This stands out as the best. Really friendly helpful staff. All of them are fantastic. Special thanks to Michael who gave me his time to get my boarding pass done on their printer.Dankeshon. Great kitchen, laundry and multiple chill out areas. Piano, guitar and garden area. This place is great. Enjoyed my stay and will recommend to anyone.

Really nice social hostel with good kitchen facilities, garden and cute bar with intruments to play with. Often happy just to sit in the garden and listen to people play random tunes.
