Very rude service and poor food quality.


Could not open windows SO HOT in summer. Bad AC system design. I engineer. No shades on windows Very light at 5 AM in summer. Cleaning staff does clean room. Desk staff did not know which train station (3) to use to get to hostel in Viena. We called and said "I do not know." Big problem to find place. No washing machine or dryer. No microwave. No glasses or good wall hooks in room. Breakfest was good. Lots of lounge space. Good security except had a nut case refused to evict.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear Guest, thank you for you comments. Just a few remarks on your comments: "SO HOT" is relativ - the room temparature is by average 21°C. We offered you a room with curtains/shades which you refused. Desk staff do know very well the way from train stations to hostel, in fact you did not know which train station you arrived and on which you are! We never offered the service of washing machines, dryers or a microwace, complaining about the lack is a bit weird. Best regards HI Brigittenau


Please clean the rooms properly before the guests arrive. There was hair in the "freshly clean" linen, in the bathroom. The hostel staff was not very friendly and welcoming. Doors do not open very easily with the keys and are a pain to work with. A tired guest when arrives in the hostel expects his/her bed to be ready and clean to have a good nights rest. The rooms felt like I was in a mental hospital or jail – very depressing.


There are certainly locations that are closer to the city center, but the breakfast is awesome! Cereals, fresh bread, ham, cheese, fruit, hot chocolate, coffee, juice,... :)


Our long weekend stay was enhoyable. The double room was clean, completely quiet but was scarely furnished for the large size. Included breakfast is major.plus, but withij walking distance were many food options as well as subway and train connections. Helpful and staff. Would recommend for a quiet, family friendly/ non party hostel.

only problem, no kitchen to use.


In general I liked the hostel. It was clean and the staff willing to help us anytime. It was good in relation to its price! The problem is that you need metro or tram to take you to the city center. Also the bathroom was out of the room but it was only for women and clean.
