It's a reasonable walk to the train station and an even shorter one to the main line going downtown, so it's easy to access the main sites despite being slightly removed. No lockers in the rooms meant needing locks on your bags (which we had), but otherwise secure. Big rooms with ensuites were nice. Didn't try their breakfasts, so not sure about value for money there. All in all, it's a hell of a deal for a clean place to stay.

Really clean hostel and well organized. The stuff was really friendly and helpful. The all-you-can-eat breakfast is priceless.

Everything is good but the payment policy is very bad. They charged me twice for a single bed. Not happy with this kind of payment policy.

For those who are looking for a quiet place to stay that's the right choice. It's a bit far away to centre city, rather you can get a metro to go for everywhere...the station is pretty close. Anyway...staff were the best point and it counts a lot! They were polite, prestative and supported us well. Breakfast was a good value for a money. I reccomend the hostel and i think is a good option for rational travellers, nice place to stay and rest a little. No further ratings...thanks for everything.

It was very clean, comfortable, and friendly hostel with good atmosphere. It is only one minutes walk from a subway station, also I felt very safe walking around the hostel. The stuff were very helpful when I needed any help. Also the breakfast buffet was very nice!

The toilet is disgusting. It was dirty when we arrived and we were the first of the day. The toilet is inside the room so when the first person wakes everyone in the room wake as well. They only gave us one key for the room which is ridiculous. Good thing? Only the breakfast is worth it. I don't recomend this hostel there are cheaper and better hostels to stay in Vienne.

We were greeted by friendly staff who gave us maps and good recommendations. It is more like a hotel but we liked it as our room mates were really fun and interesting.Room and facilities were clean. Remember to bring a lock (not too small like mine) to use the locker draws underneath the beds. The wifi was pretty slow but it was fine. Great location also, we walked into the city a few times and the public transport is great in Vienna, metro is basically at the door stop of this hostel.

Well it is obviously not a hostel but hotel with dormitories. .. there is only microwave and hot water, breakfast is expensive an the bar doesn't come cheap... normal price is EUR 17 which may be just considering the hotel like atmosphere but is far above the budget of a normal backpacker... if you are lucky to find it cheaper is a barging but it shouldn't be the way hostel prices should go with or without hotel quality. Affordability is the everything when it comes to the idea of the hostel.

Great staff and facilities, but no atmosphere to speak of. Really had more of a hotel feeling than a hostel.

The staff was great and it is really easy to get there.. but no atmosphere at all.. If you are travelling solo I wouldn't recommend it.. If you are with a group it's great!!

I like the fact that the dorms have ensuite bathrooms with cable television and fresh towels everyday. I also like that there's a small kitchen area for preparing sandwiches or cereal. The location is ideal, just a stones throw from the metro station and the main street in the city centre.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a blackout in my room and they immediately come to my room to fix our problems. And breakfast is fabulous. Hostel itself also always provides useful infos like maps and weather forecast to us. And most important thing is that wifi is available in my room. However I don't really see much interaction between the backpackers in common area. And there is no laundry service in the hostel. And they even charge fee for pc users. Don't really like this.

More of a hotel than a hostel as per most Meiningers.. no laundry, not a real kitchen (the pictures lie), expensive breakfast. Wifi works well. If you're lucky you might snag a single bed. Still possible to meet people though, half decent bar.. good location, right next to the metro and the new train station.

We were sent to two rooms that did not have beds for us. It was late at night and we were very tired. The staff were insistent that the second room was ours and we were expected to tell the additional guest they were in the wrong room should they return in the night.We refused and they reluctantly found us another room. The hostel was hard to locate. We were unhappy that there were no lockers in the room.

Overall the hostel was nice and what we were looking for. It is definitely more like a hotel and you'll notice that in the pricing when compared with other hostels. The options for hostels in Vienna is rather limited, but I would definitely stay here again. While it isn't in the city center, the U-bahn is basically right out the door and it's an easy ride into town. The 3 bed with private ensuite bathroom was pretty nice, nothing crazy. Also, it's nice to have a bar in the hostel.
