It was absolutely the best hostal I've ever been to! Great atmosphere, helpfull staff and all facilities that you could expect from a hostel. The outside area is just perfect to chill out or socialize. Definitely recommend the place!
Great place to stay for à citytrip. Very tidy, walkable city centre and friendly staf. Just Don't expect a bustling party atmosphere.
Walking distance to most things. I hired a bike from the hostel and went around the city for the day. Rooms were fine. Showers could be cleaned more frequently. They have a bar there as well but I was sick so didnt get there.
We thought the hostel atmosphere was great. Love the garden/ patio area, the common rooms. It was very clean as well. Our only issue was the room size. It was very small and tight for 3 people.
FANTASTIC atmosphere! I love that every night you can go downstairs and meet tons of new people. The hostel was also pretty clean and I really like that they give every person their own locker with a key. Staff are all friendly. Not very close to the city center but it's close to the Westbahnof station so it's really easy to get around via public transport.
This was a really wonderful hostel to stay at with a great atmosphere. Only negative is that it's a little far from the main downtown area.
I only stayed two nights and wished I'd stayed more. This hostel has such a great atmosphere, made it very easy to meet people as a solo traveller, it is about a 20 minute walk from the centre but is really close to lots of places to eat in the evenings. Really good facilities, and friendly staff, would definitely go back!
Nice yard, helpful staff. Good location to go to the airport and Shonbrunn palace. Highly recommended!
Great hostel! Had an amazing time. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Free home made lemonade was delightful after walking around in the sun all day. There was always something going on in the evenings and it was very easy to meet new people. Plenty of games so that was a nice touch and a good ice breaker to meet new people. Staff always helpful to change money for laundry. Can not recommend this place enough. Gladly stay here again when in Vienna!
Didn't stay long, but the hostel was clean and pleasant. We found all the facilities we could have possibly needed made available, and slept very well. There's even a piano in the common room for people to play and practice on.
I really enjoyed my stay here! The only thing is that it was especially hot while I was there and all they had I the rooms was a fan which did little to make the heat bareable at night. Also it got quite warm in the common and bar areas at night without many fans or AC. Other than that it had a great atmosphere and the staff was friendly and helpful!And.breakfast was fairly reasonable for the price!
I thought this hostel was amazing!! I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm, it had an entry section, seperate sink where you could do your makeup/brush teeth. Great little bar inside, really social feel, lots of musical instruments. Decent breakfast. Would definitely stay again!! They let me change my booking :) Only things I would have liked to see were a shelf next to the bunk to put my phone and valuables on and a key card entry, rather than real keys because people often left the room unlocked.
We could only stay here for one night but i am glad we did. has a very social environment and rooms are clean. you have your own key to get the room and lockers.staff are willing to help you about everything. not in center of wien but only a short way with metro. i would love to stay here again.
Awesome atmosphere. Great location, close to a main train station. I highly recommend this hostel. It stays quiet at reasonable hours too.

Really cute little place in Vienna :) it's a little outside of city centre but close to westbanhof station so it's no issue! You can meet people in the bar or if you want to relax hang out in the gardens, this hostel has the best of both worlds. I loved the themed rooms and staff were v. Helpful and friendly. One of the best hostels I've stayed at!
Lovely, relaxed hostel with friendly, helpful staff and clean facilities.

Lovely hostel. Staff friendly, helpful and cheerful. Rooms clean and the whole hostel really well kept and looked after. Quiet and easy to sleep there. Well equipped kitchen (which was important for us) and a super outdoor space to eat in, as well as lots of space indoors to meet people and enjoy books, games and music. Loved the array of travel guides there for you to peruse and borrow, as well as the book exchange. A bit of a walk into town but worth it for such a good hostel. Thanks!
