This hostel needs to badly invest in a WiFi range extender. The Internet would only work near the lobby area and didn't work at all in my room. Also the door to my room was not very secure. If you left the room, the door wouldn't shut completely unless you unlocked the door lock with your key again.


The hostel located on the outskirts of Vienna up on top of a hill. This gives a nice view but is horribly inconvient to getting anywhere in the city. There are no common areas to meet other people. Mainly a hostel for older people on vacataion rather than travelers. The staff was helpful but that's the only thing I enjoyed about my stay. I wouldn't stay here again.


This was the perfect hostel for me in Vienna. I had spent the previous two nights in a loud hostel in Krakow and had hardly any sleep. wanted somewhere out of the way and this was perfect. peaceful quiet location, had the best sleep here. great views of the city from my room. ensuite bathroom, locker and lockable wardrobes. WiFi was not amazing and could only get signal near the reception area. not a typical central party hostel but had a very pleasant stay here. would recommend


awesome breakfast like a hotel with bargain bed cost!!


the internet is not everywhere. Also the wi-fi is not stable all the time. May be it will be good if the wi-fi is available around the hostel, from the rooms also.

Cool place, you can see the whole city from your room window if you are lucky and got a room from the city side. For the car parking, its a little bit complicated because you can parking just a dark side of the area.


So clean and cosy hostel. Surrounded by a wonderful nature. Moreover, there is an incredible panorama of the city from the hill. Parking place is also available.


so lucky to stay here! cheap but fancy, sweet surrounding!


If you are looking for a hostel that is outside of the city and has great views, and is queit this hostel is perfect. If you want close and easy access to anything, including restuarants, there isnt much near the hostel. You have to take the bus and the metro and they do not run all night. The staff was helpful and the breakfast was great. They had a wide variety of things to choose from, and the breakfast was included.


Overall our stay at the Palace Hostel was pretty good. The location is easily accessed by public transportation as the bus drops you right in front of the hostel but waiting for the bus can take a while at night. Perfect for the summer but in the winter its a hassle to wait in the cold. Hostel was clean but the shower flooded. It was nice to have breakfast included but it had lots of bread with nowhere to toast it. Wifi was okay- doesn't reach all rooms though.


great crew that worked there! Without a car it's a bit of a hassle as there's no grocery store nearby, nor a fridge or a kitchen (only a microwave).


Its a great location for stunning views of the city but a little far away from the centre. The hostel is great, clean, breakfast is amazing, but no real social area which is the only thing missing. Enjoyed our stay though!


Mattresses are in bad condition, very small and uncomfortable rooms. The hostel is quite far from the city center, but it has free parking and you can reach the bus in front of the property and it takes 7 minutes to U-bahn (good conections). Breakfast if good.


Very practical hostel, clean and organized. the location is not the most accessible, but it's possible to get there by public transport. the city view from there is astonishing.


If you use transportation, it's a little bit tough to find here. But if you need to quite and good view point, it'll be good choice.
