The location is fantastic for getting into the city by foot, if you don't mind walking 20 minutes or so. My only complaint is the kitchen being entirely too small as far as seating. Or even if it were more welcoming to eat evening meals in the common lobby space. For a massive hotel/hostel there are two tables to eat at and the three nights that a friend and I stayed there, everyone was acting like animals claiming tables and not letting others eat.

The wifi wasn't good at all :(

Great hostel in good location, just 5mins away from the subway, very clean and spacious (except for the kitchen). Only negative thing is the wifi which could work better. I definitely recommend it.

This is a very friendly, moderately-conveniently located, clean, spacious, and well equipped hostel. Only one downside: Wifi. The wifi is absolutely horrendous.

Where to begin?!? Tiny kitchen, oven doesn't work, toaster doesn't work, too crowded to do anything AND the laundry is crammed in there too! There was only one man at the front desk. We had to wait ten minutes for the seriously overworked reception staff just to buy a beer! The wifi connection was practically non existent considering the number of times it dropped out. Finally, there were too many families for a hostel atmosphere, not good for solo travellers looking to meet people.

I was very satisfied with this hostel. It is clean, quiet, and well-reachable by tram and a short 10min-walk. The lounge area and the rooms are really nice and everything is new and modern. The prices and rates are standard, not particularly cheap nor expensive.

Nice place but a lot of families, more like a hotel. A little far from everything

Good full breakfast. Excellent atmosphere with pool and fussball table. We were three for a 4-bed room and they ran out of space and they gave us a private room.

The rooms are excellent, and the bathroom, AMAZING! The Internet worked very well and the staff was friendly and helpful. The kitchen was a little bit crowded because it was Christmas, but it was useful anyway! There is no S-Bahn station near to the hostel for those who use Eurail tickets, but it was easy to go downtown walking.

Only one complaint, really: No recycling-services for a hotel/hostel with hundreds of guests... Isn't this 2014, soon to be 15? - And: Maybe the fussball table could be placed somewhere else? It's quite noisy...

Nicola at the front desk was amazing. We had a passport crisis and she went over and above to help us, calling the Canadian Consolate and lawyers in the area. She was always smiling and friendly. Our only complaint was that the kitchen (for such a large hostel) was miniscule. Really hard to get in there to cook.

Everything is good if you don't mind stay in a hotel and spend 20 mins to city centre.

Great facilities and all, the building is huge and it doesn't really have a youth hostel vibe to it, I saw a lot of families during my stay. I wouldn't say it's a great place to meet people but the place was comfortable.

The rooms are very clean and the beds comfortable and since the shower and toilet are separated we wouldn't have to wait so it was good. Overall i really like this hostel but it's not the best place to meet people, as said in the other comments, and my friends had a of trouble connecting to the wifi. But i would definetly recommand it for a few nights in Vienna!

This is not really the place to stay if you are traveling alone or want to meet other backpackers, as we saw a lot of families and older travelers and it is very large building with a lot of guests. I usually prefer smaller youth hostels, but It was a good place for a weekend away! The dorm rooms were nicely designed and very clean, and it was only a short walk to the Town hall and Christmas markets

Perfection ! The only little thing is the wi-fi, but I think the problem comes from the city. I heard that they have problem with wi-fi everywhere in the city..

Toilet and shower were seperat, both with a proper sink (dorm) - awesome!!! In the shower room was mould due to the not working (and unfortunately not cleaned) ventilation, otherwise I would have given an "excellent" for cleanliness as well - everything else was very clean! TV in the dorm. Nice design of the dorms. All together: A very nice hostel, I would definately stay there again!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here - definitely on the very top end of hostel accommodation, especially when you factor in the frankly phenomenally low prices for the facilities you have access to during your stay. It comes highly recommended, even though there is a bit of a journey necessary from the city centre, but a relaxing walk or a short trip on the U-Bahn will sort you out there. The room was clean and quiet, and the bed surprisingly comfortable! I would not hesitate to stay here again.
