The receptionists were friendly and the place was nice. The location was not that good and there were no instructions to get there by public transport in their links. We had a private room with bathroom and they just cleaned the floor. Breakfast was not very complete for €6. We enjoyed our stay nevertheless.

Breakfast is not so good. Views lovely, clean, beautiful bedrooms, helpful staff


it is almost a 30 min walk from the city centre. (for the same price, we stayed in a hostel in Vienna that was in the Nasch Markt; a five minutes walk from Karls Platz) the floors were dusty. mopping the floors before the arrival of guests is expected. the hand sink drain was clogged with hair. the staff on duty did not have our papers ready. wanted us to pay the full amount even though we had paid 10% in advance. their card machine rejected both debit cards we had, which did not happen anywhere

Nice modern hostel. Large locker space, plenty of sockets. Slight walk out of town but it's just straight along the river which is nice.


It doesn't look like a Hostel. It is far from the city Center, but I knew this In advance. Then don't sell food and the closest restaurant doens't have a very godo price. For one night is fine.


A bit pricey, but the bed is qute comfy though. Far away from train station but there is a bus no6 that stops 5 minutes from the place. Very clean.

Very far from city center. Nice staff but not any amenities (kitchen, communal areas). Basically a hostel stuffed in the basement of a conference center.


If you like staying in a cramped basement and being woken up at 7 by heavy machinery outside your window then this is the place for you. Also I booked a room with an ensuite, but it didn't have one.


Really beautiful staff who helped willingly!!


Pros - Excellent room for a hostel. I think this place is regularly a school dorm residence and it was 10 out of 10. Big room, washroom and shower. View of the mountains, the river and the fortress out the window. About a 15min walk from the main station not the closest but still doable. Excellent kitchen with a fridge that has your own locker compartment. Great for couples not for single travelers, it seems more like a hotel. Cons-distance to old town, cost of bikes, construction next door.


It is very clean and the facilities are great. It has no atmosphere whatsoever but the rooms are big and have desks and tv's in them. Don't get the breakfast - very expensive for what you get and the kitchen staff are rude.


Very, very nice clean rooms. Although 30 some Euros a night is a little steep, it's just the price of the area and you're certainly getting your money's worth (although no air conditioning). The Old Town is a thirty minute stroll along the River, or you can take the bus which is about five minutes away. All in all, it made our time very relaxing and enjoyable and was the perfect way to end two weeks of back-packing Europe.


Not a great place for solo travellers. There is a shared kitchen but it doesn't really give you a chance to socialise with others. But the staff were lovely and the rooms were very clean


Overall a good experience. Staff were friendly & helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean including a decent size bathroom which also was very clean! Wouldn't suggest coming here if you're a solo traveller like myself. No atmosphere and was really hard to get a conversation out of fellow guests. Wouldn't recommend the breakfast. Quite overpriced considering you get the same for free in other hostels. Also a bit far out from Old Town
