One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Staff was so friendly and helpful, rooms were very clean, and there was a big common area for relaxing and meeting people. Can also rent bikes for 12 euro a day, which I highly recommend! Lots of bike paths so it was a great way to see vienna
Great hostel in Vienna. Short ride into the town center. Social without being too loud. They have a nice bar and lounge area, plenty of communal areas, and a nice kitchen. They don't offer free coffee or tea (which I think all hostels should) which is kind of a bummer. Weird thing is the common areas are not in the same building as some dorms. I could imagine that in poor weather having to walk from the common areas to your dorm would would be annoying. Would definitely recommend this hostel.
The feel of the dorms was lacking - I felt like I was staying in a hospital. But the common areas had a better vibe to them. Staff was pretty good, though the cleaning staff would disturb us every morning coming in and out to clean, pre 10AM. I was staying in an all female dorm and a male housekeeper just walks in without permission. Not professional. Wifi was good overall, worked everywhere. Clean. Timer on showers was a nuisance. Overall good stay!
It's a nice hostel with a quite good location (between Schonburg and Museum Quarter). Staff is very nice and helpful too. It was a good choice.
Lovely hostel - super clean, great staff and social without being party crazy. The only thing is that the electrical outlets in the dorm room I stayed in could have been more convenient. It's only a small detail though!
EVERY THING IS GOOD, PERSONAL AND GUESTS ARE IN GOOD BEHAVIOUR. THE POSITION IS VERY GOOD. DEFINETELY IS ONE OF THE BEST HOSTEL I'VE NEVER BEEN. CONGRATULATION.
Traditional hostel, has plenty of character ( not like the new big chains), with a pleasant and cheery bar to relax in at the end of a long day's sightseeing. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Safe area, only five mins walk from the Westbahnhof transport hub with grocery stores close by.
It's out of the hostels control but the walk to the hostel from westbahnhof felt unsafe because it was just obviously not a great area of vienna. But the hostel itself was great, it was like escaping that area of dodgey people and cheap businesses.
Staff is fantastic and very helpful. Also, they have plenty of lockers and close to the subway.
Great hostel. I Had a great stay here 10/10
wonderful place to stay! staff is super friendly and helpful.
Great hostel with great staff and great atmosphere.
This hostel deserves all these great reviews. It's a few minutes walk from Westbahnhof railway station and about half an hour from the city centre (on foot).
Enjoyed our stay a lot! The staff knew all the best small restaurants and bars nearby. The vibe in the hostel was cool-instruments to play, drinks from the bar and a comfy lounge. Kitchen is large and there are easy laundry machines for pay. Cheap breakfast of: bread, cereal, granola, fruit cocktail and endless coffee. Our room had sturdy bunks and secure lockers. The ensuite bathroom was always clean. The doors we're manual lock so most days people forgot to lock doors. I would stay again.
Great little hostel. Very clean and welcoming. Would stay again.
We just stayed for one night, but it was very nice there and we would definitely visit this hostel again!

Don't look anywhere else, stay here. These people know how to run a hostel! Right next to a major train station, clean, warm rooms and super friendly staff. Thank you!!
Great hostel with very helpful staff and a nice relaxed vibe. It's not a crazy party hostel but it's fun. My biggest complaint is that electrical outlets in the dorm rooms are very inconvenient. If you're in the top bunk and you need to charge your phone overnight, good luck. If the person below you has already gone to sleep, you almost have to wake that person up in order to plug in your electronics because the plug doesn't reach far at all. But, it's clean, friendly and close to transit.
Good place. Being near the train station (westbahnof), the location was perfect. Staff recommendations were great! Breakfast system was a little painful. It can be a buffet instead of someone serving portions with many people waiting in queue.
