Well, these guys are so good that they spoiled me for any other hostel. When the staff (Steve and Eliska - specially) talks to you and smiles at you, you see that their acts are earnest and real. That makes all the difference. It's almost next to the station, walking distance to the Schonbrunn, is secure, clean and they rest good cycles too. It was a good decision.

I can't feel any uncomfortable! Everything is good! That's just little far from some attraction, But very close to station!
Great atmosphere, friendly staff, very clean. Great location for the subway/train station where the airport shuttle can drop you off, and it's in a quieter area. My friend and I felt very welcome and safe. Would definitely stay here again!
One of the best hostels I've stayed in yet! Beautiful facilities and excellent staff. Right around the corner from the underground. About an 8 min walk from an Aldis grocery store.
This place was the best place in Europe by far! The place was spotless and the kitchen was great. The bar was good with ok standard prices and with everyone just chilling jamming on the instruments it was an awesome vibe
My friend and I spent three nights at this hostel and found it to be a very pleasant experience. We had a private room and although the size of the room was very small, it was okay since we spent most of our time in the downstairs bar area (very cozy and people hang out/play music) or the computer room with free internet access. There's even a great happy hour every evening where you can get beer/cocktails for 2-4 Euros. We loved that it was in a very safe location and close to the metro/trams.

Overall, really good! Location is okay, great little bar with musical instruments to meet and have sing alongs with fellow travellers. Couple of gripes, really small room and no barriers or ladders on the bunks. Did not get a good night sleep as I was aware quite how bad it would be had I fallen off. Friendly staff and great atmosphere, but could possibly find somewhere with bigger rooms closer to the centre for the same price.
My first hostel since I was a 23. (I'm 71 now) Great experience overall -- staff very frienly and warm, knowledgeable, facility great. A good start on a 10-country swing.
Need better internet for it didn't work half the time otherwise it was a good hostel.
Helpful receptionists, easy to find the hostel from train station, clean and good atmosphere
Great atmosphere. One of my favorite hostels. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. A bit far to go by walking from the museums the city centre itself, but there is a tram stop really close to the hostel.
The hostel was bigger than I imagined. A little intomidating for a solo traveller but it was easy to meet people at the bar. Had anything you could need and friendly staff
One of my favorite hostels I've stayed in. With an excellent kitchen facility, tables for travelers to share a meal/bottle of wine, happy hour bar, available city guide books for all parts of Europe, computer lab, informative staff , etc. etc. The hostel's a great find and definitely a must stay when visiting Vienna!
Great hostel... Very clean and staff very helpful. Only thing rooms were tiny as can be and wifi cut out in the room as well.
Best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff is very friendly (especialy the Brazilian guy!) and the atmosphere is great to have fun. The hostel decoration is totally lovely and there are many instruments if you like to play. The kitchen is nice but I really missed an oven (I bought pizza and didn't have where to do it). There are free computers to use and wi-fi works at the bedrooms. Overall experience was great, I would come back any time.

I had an amazing stay at this hostel, the fact that they had so many music instruments on which you could show off your talent was just great , you have everything you need even the bar is pretty good, but the hostel has two different buildings so don't be surprised if you are staying across the street from the reception and not in the same building with all the amazing facilities they have.
Very clean hostel however is was incredibly dull and long term stayers and elderly travellers seem to be the main occupants. Perfect for a short stay if you are just passing through Vienna and not looking to socialise.
Great place! There is music everywhere. You can play many instruments at the common area. Rooms are comfortable. I recommend it!
I've been staying in hostels for a long time, and this might easily have been the greatest hostel... ever.
Easy to find. Good transport. Hostel staff were friendly but didnt give much advice on where to go, But a local bar full of english 50m from hostel which is not really why I went to vienna as I have those at home..25min walk down highstreet to get to real Vienna But plenty of back streets. The toilet seat was dirty whole time we were there and wasnt cleaned next to room but just used another.room spotless, however really tiny. I also emailed before I got there. Got no responce. Shame.
