We booked a 4 bed female dorm but ended up having the dorm to ourselves with a shower and wash basin. There were big lockers too, but you need your own padlock for it or you can buy one from the reception. It was in a good location, around 15 mins walk from the city centre and around 10 mins walk to the nearest metro underground station. Overall i was very happy with the stay!

Great location, quiet at night (not noisy like most downtown hostels) so I could sleep. Was it fancy ? No. But some other Pluses- ensuite shower albeit without a toilet. So u didn't have to carry all your shower gear around; a hearty breakfast if ur willing to wake up early. Minuses- no wifi except in common areas, not very pretty interior. It's rather old school, reasonably clean no nonsense hostel experience. Which is fine. It depends on what you need. Staff was helpful.

If you stay in this hostel,you won't really need public transportation as it's near the city center.The breakfast was ok but it was until 9.15 so you have to get up early if you don't want to miss it.You don't have a toilet in rooms and you share it with a lot of guests so you have to wait quite a bit in the morning.Anyway,it was clean and nice so I think it's good value for money

Very good breakfast.


77%

Location was good, wifi was only downstairs and beds were comfy. Breakfast in the morning was quite nice, for a hostel and generally the place was clean. A staff member my friends and I encountered was very unhelpful, didn't really seem to interested to help and made us feel as though we were a burden.

Breakfast was great and excellent location. Everything else very average. No kettle no kitchen. Rooms pretty dingy. Clean and quiet so always good.

Everything good but the staff, not very kind. Spacious and clean room, good breakfast and nice location, but the personal was quite unpleasant and not very helpful.

I would not stay here again. Stayed for 2 nights, and booked what I thought was a large dorm room in the hope to meet people as a solo traveller. However, was in a 4 bed dorm of which I was the only person in it. Not what I was looking for. Very lonely. Also I went downstair at about 9/10 at night to buy a bottle of water and the man on reception was very rude and didn't let me, saying he was 'too busy'. Free breakfast was nice and the place was clean.

The old guy who was working in the morning was very unfriendly. However, other staff were good. Convenient place to stay.

It's really near to the center of Vienna, you can go by walking or by bus (3 stops). Really big room (6 bed-female).

Cool hostel for young people.excelent breakfast. This is more like a family hostel not a party hostel

Overall, very good. Wfi in the rooms would be helpful, but more important is air-con in the rooms. They are sweltering in hot weather, and quite cramped. Was just bearable in late June, must be horrendous in July and August.
