Fantastic stay, definitely enjoyed my time there. Only complaint is regardring the WiFi, even connecting was a challenge at times, apparently too many people were logging in. Otherwise, no problems

We enjoyed our short stay at the hotel. It was very clean and a lot more modern that we had expected. The location was great and very easy to find.

The wifi is free and supposed to be accessible throughout the hostel, but we found that it was spotty at best - even in the lobby. It's possible to pay for computer use, but that doesn't always solve the problem of communication. Other than that, the place was nice, clean, and new, and the staff were helpful.

Nice hotel with a lot young people. City center is in walking distance. Nothing special but a very good place to be.

The hostel is in a good location not far from the river where there are some cool riverside bars and its about a 20 minute walk to the city centre or 5 minutes to the nearest metro station. The room and ensuite are clean and well presented. This is a hostel/hotels so expect to see alot of families and school trips about in the lobby area, if you're after a party hostel you may be disappointed.

Reception and facilities on entrance are brilliant, however really let down by the rooms. Stayed in a dorm of 6, toilet and shower was brand new and clean however the room was stuffy and damp, so bad you could see the wet where the wall meets the ceiling and where two walls meet. As an asthma sufferer, after one night of staying here I suffered wheezing and chest pains. Due to this I would not stay again.

Excellent place to stay at Vienna! I reccomend!

This is really more of a hotel, not ideal for a backpacker on their own. It was clean and very nice though. Really good for people travelling together.

Great hostel with good amenities and good location, although I don't recommend trying to dry your laundry. It just kind of heated mine up.

This hostel is a lot bigger and "newer" than i prefer, and you don't really get the backpacking-vibe there. Nevertheless it's really clean, the beds are great and it's within walking distance from Stephansdom. If you are travelling alone i would not recommend it since it doesn't really give you many opportunities to meet people.

Would be ideal for a good night's sleep but the rooms had no blinds, so sunrise in summer woke everyone up early. The internet also worked poorly. Otherwise this place is like a nice hotel - atmosphere is completely dead. One of the staff members was outstandingly helpful - can't remember his full name but it ended with a -ian. He was a local short haired blonde / light brown guy in his mid 20s who seriously helped me out and did a superb job of explaining everything.

Place was clean and safe and a good place to sleep. Definitely lacks the friendly backpacker atmosphere though.

Great location; not directly in the city centre, but very close and accessible. Extremely clean and great room! Not a party hostel, but a great place to stay if you want to chill and relax. No complaints!

Hey, Wow - thank you for the nice comment!!! We really hope you will visit us again for "chillaxing" Lovely greetings, your MEININGER Team

Everything at the hostel was clean and well-ordered, if not excellent. The location was ok. It is a good 20 minute walk from downtown and the neighborhood itself does not offer much in terms of restaurants or bars. It is more of a hotel than hostel. If you want a party atmosphere look elsewhere.
