Four kinds of pate at breakfast! And an expresso machine. Kinda pricy but not bad for Vienna. Beautiful location and backyard with a stunning view. Good hipster restaurant next door. Wonderful hiking just across the street.

I loved the place, especially the staff was really helpful and can speak English well. The place is well connected to public transport and almost in the middle of the forest. Also, give Villa Aurora nearby a try because the Austrian food is really good. The only complain I have is that tables should be better cleaned after breakfast and that wi-fi does not reach rooms all of the time. Other than that the place is quiet and I was able to stay by myself for 4 days in a room for 4.


Very nice location, fine breakfast, hospitable stuff, less than half an hour to the city center, wi-fi signal does not reach farther rooms. Generally very pleased indeed.

The location is very beautiful, but also a bit far from city center.


This is my second time inter railing and visiting Vienna. This place is great if you don't mind being a bit out of the city. The views are brilliant and we really enjoyed going cycling in the countryside. The breakfast is perfectly nice. I wouldn't say this is particularly a hostel for travellers looking for a party/social scene. There are lot of school groups and families. It was also a little frustrating when we were waiting around at reception for an hour because they'd "popped out"


The hostel was nice and I have no complaints about the room, the facilities or the cleanliness, but the place was really hard to find when coming by car. We had to call the reception several times and in the end we had even driven past it but the instructions were quite vague. We were for example not told that to get to the hostel you have to drive to the inner yard of the nearby hotel and the hostel kind of in the forest behind it. Luckily the people from the nearby hotel helped us


Really cool to stay in a hostel that looks over the city, we had a great time admiring the view. There are also walking/bike trails all around so if your outdoorsy I can guarantee you'll like it. The drawback however that it is ages away from anything, you need to allow 45 mins to get into Vienna city. The bathrooms became quite dirty, possibly due to the lack of any bathmat; it became practically muddy after a day. Another drawback is that the wi-fi did not reach all the rooms.


The location of this hostel is absolutely amazing. Even if you want to see the city, it can still be done from this hostel. It is about a 30-35 min ride on bus/U-bahn, but the location of this hostel is worth it! The rooms and bathrooms are super clean, the staff is very friendly, and how can you turn down the free breakfast??? There's also a really nice deck where you can hang out and meet other travelers!


Very good and cosy hostel in a wonderful location! Located in a hill, has incredible views to the city. Perfect place to be relaxed, laying in the grass and profiting before going to visit the city. Just 20min from the city center with public transports which are very regular in time. Totally recommend and want to come back!!


Annoying noise after 10pm


Second time staying here since the location is great and the beds are comfy. Each time I've stayed something has gone wrong. First time I was willing to let it pass since stuff happens, but the second time was too much. I got back to the room late and someone was sleeping in my bed. Looked around and there were no free ones available. Spent the next 30 minutes with the staffer trying to figure out where I could sleep. Nothing to say sorry except that I had to come down the next day for a new bed


I recommend everyone to stay at this lovely hostel. It is covered with trees and full of green nature everywhere.Also it has a wonderful view of Wien where you can see everywhere from the top. The staff is very kind but maybe breakfast could be better. Thank you all.

Break fast is awesome!!!


Great view of vienna from the hillside. Nice to get out of the concrete jungle of the city for once, but it's rather far from the city. There's no kitchen in the hostel or market close by so all there is for food is a fancy (but quite good) restaurant down the road. Breakfast in the morning was really good. Staff was helpful but don't go out of their way to help you enjoy the city.


While located well outside the centre of Vienna, the hostel is not difficult to reach via public transit and the view was amazing. However, if you only have a couple of days in the city you might be better off staying closer to the Old Town. That said, the free breakfast was really good - meat and eggs in addition to the standard cereal and yoghurt - and the staff was really helpful in suggesting places to go and explaining how to get there.


Service was great Mini golf was awesome really challenging Easy to find hostel


The Hostel is really very good! The atmosphere, the staff, the rooms, i liked everything. However going without a car could be a litte bit hard, because the hostel is far from the city and there is nothing around it.

The hostel was set in beautiful surroundings with fantastic views of Vienna. The room was bright, clean and comfortable. At breakfast there was an excellent selection of foods - we couldn't get enough of the bread, chocolate granola and hot chocolate! The only thing that would have made our stay even better would have been if the hostel provided a kitchen for guests to use throughout the day and evening.


Excellent service! Only downside was no Wifi in rooms. But otherwise excellent!
