Hostel was ok. It's much more like a hotel so the rooms were clean but the atmosphere was a bit sterile. There was not a great social area and the kitchen was tiny so you couldn't be in there eating or cooking with more than three people. Kitchen was clean and modern though. Location is ok, near the station but the area is a bit dull.

Really more like a top-notch student hotel! I stayed 3 nights at the Meininger Vienna Downtown Franz and had a wonderful experience. Very friendly staff, clean rooms - even supplied you with shampoo, soap, and a hairdryer. Each room has its own bathroom, and the beds and personal areas are comfortable and stylish. An incredible value for money!

Really great hostel with more of a hotel feel, great value for money! A lot of families staying at the hotel gave a nice atmosphere. Slightly out of the main centre, but still within walking distance. Maybe not the nicest location, but still felt safe with the security of the hostel.

Great and helpful staff, this hostel is a short walk from the city centre and there is a supermarket only aprox. 5 houses next to it.

Good quality for good price

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.

Very nice, clean hostel - well really more like a hotel than a hostel as other reviewers have noted. Many large groups and families sticking to themselves make it a rather non-social place. The facilities are nice - good kitchen (though a bit small), decent bar, however the wifi was horrendous. Your network was overlapping channels with other networks in range when I checked. If that's still true it is easy to fix and should make things better. If fixed, I would highly recommend this place.

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.

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.
