I really love this hostel. It's very small, personal, cozy with really nice staff. It has a great kitchen and bar. Lots of solo travellers here so it's very social. Wish I could live here.

Thanks for the love, galledbladder!!! That would be great wouldn't it, a friendly-cozy-hostel-style home, folks to cook with every night, music and conversation in the evenings...the wave of the future maybe... :)


Good location, nice bar in the hostel that allows you to meet other travellers easily. The staffs are friendly to provide many information to the traveller, they also have self-made booklets about the summer concerts and activities in Vienna at night, which is pretty useful!


Really liked this hostel, it's got a proper kitchen and a lovely garden to eat in. Also, a bar which gets pretty busy in the evening and we saw a live acoustic band play one evening which was great. Also, they have a large selection of games/packs of cards to play in the bar. Breakfast should not be so expensive though.


This hostel was fantastic, so close to Wien Westbahnhof, such a wicked atmosphere! I wish I'd stayed longer, it was such a fun hostel! Great facilities, good clean dorms, very happy with my stay here.


Best hostel I've ever stayed in. Most helpful and knowledgeable staff, impressive collection of board games, clean and cozy room, musical instruments at the bar... Absolutely enjoyed my stay


Pretty good hostel! Has a bar for chilling and interacting with other people... Staff super friendly and helpful! Also 24 hrs! I recommend!


One of the best hostel I ever stay in. Definitely I super recommend this hostel.

THANKS SO MUCH for the awesome review - and for being a super guest!!! :)


Really good place to stay. Great for solo travellers as well as groups. Staff are really nice and helpful. This is a fairly small and cozy place that helps with atmosphere. I wish the breakfast would run a little longer but I shouldn't complain. I could just get up earlier. Definitely recommend.


Was only there for a night and had to leave early the next morning so didn't really do much at the hostel but it seemed like it had a good vibe and everyone looked like they were making friends and having fun.


Wifi connection was weak in the room


Nice place close to the train station, ubahn, grocery stores. Nice big room, lots of outlets, nice bathroom and bed. Good wifi.


A great hostel to stay in. A good combination of a party atmosphere and peace and quiet when it's needed.


A lovely hostel, closer to a B&B or guesthouse sort of atmosphere in that it is going for a slightly posher vibe. Very chilled. Beautiful garden and very nice common area. My only criticisms would be: our room was TINY - functional, but rather cosy; the breakfasts were a bit stingy - one of my friends is gluten free so went for the cereal option and they wouldn't let her take a sachet of jam for the gluten free bread she had brought; and the shower cubicles are also rather cramped.


Hostel was a bit far from all the attractions but very walkable.


Very friendly staff


This was easily the best hostel we have stayed in so far. The place is really clean, all the staff including the cleaners were friendly, it has a nice big kitchen and self service laundry. The bar and common areas are great but you don't have to put up with noise as there is quiet time and lots of extra doors to shut out any noise. The only tiny bad point is I found the beds about 2" to short. But I'm 6'4" so probably not an issue for most. Would definitely stay here again.


Great Hostel. Best I've stayed in Austria. Convenient location to Westbanhof and central Vienna. Good English speaking Staff!

Possibly my favourite hostel that I've been to so far. Rooms were clean and beds were comfy. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The hostel has a friendly atmosphere, and it is easier to meet other travellers. The bar and the outside seating area are particularly nice and not too loud.


Very helpful staff. Nice facilities and reasonable breakfast.


The hostel was excellent, great vibe, facilities and room. The staff were very helpful and friendly and always available. The communal areas of the hostel were really good and helped create a good atmosphere where it was easy to meet other people and have a good time. The only downsides were the quiet rule from 2200, however this is not limited to this hostel and is a rule for Vienna in general, and as a smoker the hostel doesn't want you to use the outside areas so you have to go on the street.
