Great location. Staff very good and friendly. Kitchen, outside area and common areas great. Would return.
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.
I have never been to a hostel before and they made me feel super comfortable. Everything was clean, the staff and others staying in the hostel were super friendly. You never wanted to stay in your room because there was always something to do or see. They would keep you updated daily with new activities and events that were happening that day and night.

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 clean hostel, alright location and really helpful staff
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.
Really nice me hostel. Different to anything I've ever stayed in, nice bar with well priced beer!
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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The facilities were excellent and very quiet and peaceful

Great place to relax. Nice kitchen. Friendly staff
very lively place with a bar and everything, but not the best hostel for solo travelers. It's very large and as such tends to be dominated by big groups that stick mostly to themselves. Still a great place, though.
Hostel was clean and had an easy going atmosphere. Great place to meet people. The bar closes at 12 but there's a pub club around the corner and that place was awesome. Would definitely stay here again!
The best hostel I have ever been! The room is so clean, there are private showers and toliets just for women. It's the best for solo female traveller like me. The staffs are extremely friendly and helpful! There is train station near by and also a shopping mall. The location is very good! I highly recommend this place!
Perfect location near westbahnhof , extremely friendly staff. Offer free adapters / charger. 4 desktop for free uses while some hostel will charge you some money. The bed is soft and comfortable and the ventilation is very good and windy. Clean toilet with paper towel and toilet paper at the same time. There is even garden at the back of the hostel and a bar for you to socialise with other travellers. The price is unimaginably cheap. Definitely will recommend to my friends.
