Perfect hostel. Massive rooms (completely silent at night), clean bathrooms, very friendly staff (seriously, everyone is great), and wifi worked perfectly everywhere. Loved the garden terrace and I think it's a nice layout to the hostel common area. Location is excellent, just by the station and pretty close to several supermarkets & takeaways. Not a party hostel, it's pretty chill with a very cheap bar so great for meeting people!
LOVED staying here. Thank you!!

An amazing place with great atmosphere! There's also a kitchen with all the appliances you can think of. The common rooms/bar area is very open and so easy to meet other travelers. There's also a backpackers bar 2mins away where they are packed every night! Highly recommend this place :)
Just spent one night here but will definitely go back. Great hostel. Great bar. Good location. Nice rooms. Thanks guys :)
A great place to stay at! Would definitely recommend.
Amazing hostel; one if the best we've had throughout our Europe trip! Well done :) Highly recommend!
my second time living here, still excellent. Great breakfast and clean bathroom, even for a 10-person dorm, it's not so crowded probably due to low season. Excellent location too, as we just had to walk 5 mins from Westbahnhof, and the staff is very generous in lending hair-dryers and offering suggestions. Highly recommended.
very nice atmosphere..staff were pleasant

Although it was a little far from the city itself (a little over a mile walk) the staff was friendly and accommodating and the value was great!
I still envision hostels to be concrete bunkers with rows of bunkbeds, nor do I have any expectations about cleanliness or service. This hostel is nothing like that. Great courtyard (especially in the summer), reasonable breakfast, functional bar (with happy hours) to meet people. Good common areas, locker system and very knowledgeable and friendly staff. My experience was excellent, I was staying in a single room FYI. So go ahead stay here when you're in Vienna.
A very quick weekend trip to Vienna! The staff were great and very helpful, love the bar on premises and the courtyard out the back. The rooms were comfortable, including the beds, just thought the rooms could use a good clean, especially the floors. Overall I would stay again and recommend it.
We stayed 3 nights in a double room and actually we felt as locals in our own flat, located next door to the main building. Very calm and spacious the flat includes everything you need (kitchen, washing machine,...). We totally enjoyed our stay !!
I got a bunk bed, but there was no ladder to climb up into my bed. The toilets and showers are quite small, even for a skinny person. But all in all the value for money was ok.
The staff was truly wonderful. Their organization and ability to help you plan an itinerary were above and beyond.
One of the absolute best hostels in which I've ever stayed! The staff are super sweet, there's free tea available all the time, the beds are comfortable and clean, and everyone gets a locker included in the room! The location is convenient to loads of cool stuff as well, overall a total dream.
When you walk in you are greeted with a smiling face and offered a cup of delicious tea while you check in. Room was tiny but in the coziest way! The common area had Musial instruments to play while enjoying a tasty beer.
A very nice hostel. It's a bit of a ways from the city centre, but it is close to both a train station and a metro station, making getting around very easy. You can get to the city centre within 10 minutes by metro. The washroom was clean, beds comfortable, though there was a bit of a lack of outlets. They provide lockers in the rooms, though they were rather rickety. The atmosphere was amazing, and was always lively and bustling in the common areas. The staff was also very helpful and nice.
Lower bunk was a little too tight, even for smaller people. Overall it was good for the price.
Overall a really nice hostel and great value. Beds each had an outlet (and wifi was everywhere!!), clean, free sheets, really nice atmosphere. The bar area and the common room were comfy and was filled with people, cheap drinks as well. He garden was really cute, if it wasn't cold we definitely would've utilized it. Decent location, but a few stops away from the actual city center. Lockers were free and safe! Towels were €1 though. Would definitely recommend this hostel, and hope to return.
