The staff was really helpful and happy to chat with you at the bar. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you might need! The beds are comfy and there's a cute garden to hang out in when it's nice out. The only downside i can think of is the shower has one of those push for water set ups that you have to keep re-pressing. Would definitely stay here again!

Thanks a lot! Spring is a great time at our hostel, staff&guests both really love soaking up the sunshine in our private little oasis :). As for the showers - yes, you got us, they are ''eco-friendly''. Timers guarantee that a shower won't be left to run - this happens, especially in dorms, and in the worst case can result in a flooded bathroom! We try to keep our timers set to as long a cycle as makes sense - I apologize for any unpleasantness! Thanks, and do come again!

Really nice place and its incredibly close to the train station so moving around is no problem, yet if you want to save some euros by walking it does take about 15 min to get to the edge of the interesting parts of the city. The only way I think the hostel could improve is by giving a general rundown of good places to eat, visit, etc. The best hostels I've stayed in do this and it improved my experience in the city greatly.

Hi, THANKS for the review ! Thanks also for the 'general rundown' tip. Providing Vienna-info is something we really emphasize around here - we have an attractions-and-events chalkboard that's updated daily, direction-tags for all the major sites, folders of recommendations of our favorite restaurants bars & clubs, plus a well-informed staff who are always happy to help. Unfortunately, when it's very busy, these things can fall by the wayside - next time just ask, we're happy to provide!

This hostel was lovely. Easy to find from Westbahnhof and a really easy half hour walk up Mariahilferstrasse from the Ringstrasse, 20 minute walk from Schonnbrun Palace. Safe location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast cheap, plentiful and excellent quality, with nice coffee! Beautiful clean, white bedding and comfortable mattress. Showers good, 1 euro for a towel if needed. Fun, cheap bar in the evening. A perfect base from which to explore the city. Thank you!

You are so very welcome! Come sip coffee with us anytime :).

Great small cosy hostel. Lovely staff. Nice vibe. Small rooms but clean and adequate. Compensated for by nice living areas. Quiet street. Very convenient to westbahnhof station for trains in to city or further afield eg Salzburg. Would stay again.

This place is fantastic. Everyone told my brother and I that Vienna was not a party city at all and that it's more of a "laid back town." That's simply not true. Vienna can be as crazy as you want it to be. This hostel is positioned right next to one of the craziest bars I've ever been to in my life. Great location. Great multilingual staff. Playing musical instruments in the lounge? Sold. This place rocks.

THANK YOU for this great review! You are so right, Vienna's bar&club scene far outstrips its reputation - come back and do some more exploring, there's plenty of action to be found in the long dark Viennese night ;). Until then, happy travelling!

This is a clean, bright hostel with lots of thoughtful touches, such as lockers with plugs inside for charging phones. The breakfast was cheap and good. The location is not particularly central but it seems like you need to use public transport for seeing Vienna anyway. The best part is the bar area and common room - comfy and welcoming, and great for meeting other travellers.

That's exactly what we want to do here - provide a meeting-point where travellers from around the world can come together. Thanks for the review, we'll hope to see you here again one day!

An amazing hostel with an amazing vibe. A great place for solo travels to meet others alike. They have an awesome downstairs bar area; a great place to hang out. The room was a great size (8 dorm); the only negative was for our side of the floor (12) there was one toilet and one shower. The staff were also incredible helpful ad willing to answer any questions. One thing they could fix is breakfast, only one person and one line, moves very slow. Overall amazing! Better than expected!

Overall, great hostel. Most notable is the friendly and helpful staff! They went above and beyond to help. Extremely informative about sites to see and how to get there. Make sure to take advantage of that and ask any questions. Facilities are clean but room for toilet and showers are really really tiny. Rooms are a good size and bedding is clean. Bar downstairs with happy hour. Great experience. Would recommend.

The staff is very friendly and informative, they provide free maps and will tell you the best ways to get around the city. The hostel also has an excellent atmosphere, with a large common area where people can and actually socialize and talk to one another, as well as a bar, free instruments to use, and board games. It is also cleaner than most hostels I have been to, and the cleaning staff comes in once a day to the rooms. Overall 9.5/10, would highly recommend.
