It was a bit chilly in the corridors, but other than that, everything was great!

Yeah, it's true...the summer is leaving us, and with it T-shirt and shorts weather. BUT, this means the fall is coming - which in Vienna includes the opening of Opera Season (standing room tickets every night for under €5!), beautiful Autumn colors in the parks and the Viennese Woods...and soon enough the Christmas Markets will be here! Unfortunately, that all goes together with maybe wearing a sweater in the corridors :). THANKS for your review, and do come visit us again!

If you want a clean and proper run hostel this is the place for you. Not a lively place though, very many rules and you seem to be frowned upon if you want to get a crowd together and get a bit noisy.

THANKS for your review! Yeah, you got us - we're not what you'd call a PARTY hostel - body shots&beer bongs are not exactly our thing, and we do like to keep things quite in the wee hours, since many of our guests like to...sleep :). But not lively? Really? You must have been here on a bad night - come back again, and with any luck you'll catch an impromptu jam session at the bar, or even a live mini-concert - then head out and explore our neighborhood, home to some of Vienna's best bars&clubs!

I really enjoyed my stay here and think the front desk staff - Mike and Elisabeth very extremely helpful and took their time to explain things to every single guest. It's a very cheerful, bright and clean hostel and fantastic location.

One of the best hostels I stayed at ever! Nice and small but absolutely not packed. The staff was really helpful and the bar (and the Sturm) sure eased up the mingling with others. You could also stay on your own if you felt like so and no one would have bothered you. The location was perfect too, just a few meters from Westbahnhof metro station. I would highly recommend it!

Thank you for this fantastic review!!! Sturm season is still on for a few more weeks (locally brewed grape cider, very tasty and only available in late summer/early fall) - come on back and join us for a drink or two!

Bit of a walk from the hostel to the city center but easy to take the train. Really great atmosphere and reasonably priced. Everybody was very friendly and nice

It has a great atmosphere despite being a bigger hostel and all the beds had a power outlet and locker. It's a bit far from the center but the metro is really close.

Very adorable and quiet atmosphere without being dull. Conveniently located very close to one of the main train station and the staff are willing to help out. Free computers with internet access but I think they need more to accommodate for their size. Personally, I found the breakfast to be overpriced and was a little disappointed there was no walking tours. However, there is a wombats nearby which I believe provides walking tours.

Thank you for taking the time to review us - we really appreciate it! Just one small correction - we do indeed offer a fantastic walking tour of Vienna, as well as a bike tour and a biking-and-wine-tasting tour of the nearbye Wachau Valley (a world heritage wine growing region). I'm so sorry you missed out! Next time we'll be more than happy to organize something for you!

Only stayed here 1 night but it was probably the best hostel I've been to - actual bar downstairs with tons of hangout space but rooms are quiet. SUPER clean. Kitchen and self-service laundry. Bookshare, instruments to play(!), friendly staff, patio, etc. Walking distance from Westbahnhof; only a few metro stops from the sights.

Quite nice for a large hostel. Great kitchen and fridge for self-catering, and nice common areas to socialize.

The best property I've ever stayed. Although it was a pretty short stay (we had an early morning flight and had in the hostel for 6 hours or so), we managed to enjoy the atmosphere to the full: cozy garden, welcoming stuff, 24-hour reception (I'd rather call it a help desk since we were assisted in every question), and the hostel's OWN bar inside, which offers local beer for VERY reasonable prices. The double private we stayed had a cute window view (to the garden in the yard) and was very clean

This hostel is wonderful, would definitely recommend staying here! Staff were so friendly and welcoming, and there is a lovely atmosphere here. Large communal area, including bar open til late with great price drinks. There are also board games and musical instruments available to play which was lovely! Kitchen facilities good and clean, and secure lockers available to store luggage after checkout (lockers in rooms too). We stayed in a 10-bed dorm, but there was plenty of space for all :)
