Ok guys If you wanna be in an hostel safe, clean and with a good breakfast included, go to this hostel But if you're looking for a good atmosphere , close to the center and friendly helpful staff: don't go to this hostel
It is cheap, clean, good breakfast and easy to reach by bus! Overall a good stay. I just advoce to take a towel with you.
If you want to stay cheap, this is the hostel for you. If, however, you don't mind spending a bit more, I advise you to do so. Overall we had a good stay but the staff was quite unfriendly, the rooms cold and not very cozy. Not much privacy because on a daily basis staff enters to change dustbins. We did like how the walls were thick so we couldn't hear the children staying there. The underground is closeby and has good connections. The breakfast is good but sometimes a bit early for a vacation
Well located house with easy access to public transportation. Clean, excelent atmosphere and delicious breakfast.
A huge and very paranoid place, the windows are sealed shut in the whole building, they won't hear of opening them no matter what, you are compelled to enjoy their air-conditioned atmosphere, day and night. Buffet breakfast ok, included in the price. BEWARE of private twin rooms, they include only a bunk bed, hot, stale and smelly air (sealed windows), no towels. We had to take a pricier room to sleep in normal beds, with towels and mandatory hostel-prescribed air-conditioned room temperature.
The staff was helpful throughout. They told us about which places to visit. Very close to the tram and Handelskai station. The room was a little small. It did not have enough charging ports. The breakfast was repetitive. The washroom lacks basic amenities. No WiFi in rooms.

This place ruined Vienna for me. I'm sorry to say that, but it's true. They're clean, enough bathrooms, nice breakfast. BUT there are millions of teenagers there, along with a lot of older people and families. As a lone traveller, the complete lack of atmosphere really bothered me and made my stay insufferable. If you're in a group and not looking for a party hostel, I'd say go for it. Good public transport around.
It’s really big, so there really isn’t a hostel environment, but I loved how clean and organized it is. It was a relaxing stay.
