If a family friendly hostel in the middle of nowhere is what your looking for, this would be it. If your a young traveller looking to see the city and meet people, keep scrolling. Unless you're traveling with a car I'd advice against this hostel, public transport took 30 minutes to get to the centre and the nearest food store is 3km away. Wifi was pretty dismal. The view from the hostel was good and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Loved this hostel! Such a nice relaxing, quiet atmosphere with an amazing view of the city! Staff was incredible, rooms were clean, wifi worked great throughout the hostel including the rooms. Great recommendations on food from staff and very clear instructions on how to get to the hostel! Will return on my next trip!
Hostel is very nicely located for those who like quite places... on the city border of Vienna, right next to old palace and large forests, with great view on the city. Staff was really nice, smiling, english speaking, helped with everything. Rooms was cleaned every day, facilities was pleasant, same as free breakfasts, we really enjoyed staying here. There was only one negative... very noisy doors and people who can't close them silently (especially in the morning).
Bit of a trek to get to but nonetheless lovely hostel with great views of the city below. Decent breakfast provided and ample activities on offer. 7/10 would hostel again.
Lovely staff, especially the blond girl. Sorry I've forgotten her name.
As far as I could gather, Palace Hostel was the old servants quarters for a modern palace. The rooms are small with only 4 beds each, and each has it's own bathroom. There are lockers in the rooms and everything was quite clean. Not a lot of activity in the hostel, but the view of Vienna from the hillside was wonderful. The hostel is located several kilometers outside of the city, but it only takes a few minutes to get there on the public transport. Great value for the money. I'd recommend them.
Was such a nice place to relax and unwind with the woods around you; however it's a little far from the city and there is no atmosphere in the hostel. Great rooms and grounds
certainly not a party hostel but we were there for one night and it was really enjoyable. The view is amazing and the man behind the desk was so kind and helpful. would definitely come back.
says they have a kitchen. it's a restaurant for the breakfast they offer for a fee. don't expect to be able to use it for any sort of cooking. gorgeous view. clean.
Located far out of the city but it is a 30mins tram and bus ride into the centre. The staff were friendly and the hostel had a lot to offer such as mini golf and table tennis etc. Not to mention the beautiful view over vienna!
The Hostel had a wonderful location although it took time to reach it. The rooms were nice, clean and with their own bathroom/shower. The minus points would be that this really is not a place for youth: there is no gathering area. Also wifi did not work in the rooms so the lobby was always occupied with focused on their iPhones. Breakfast was alright, mainly fruit and bread: the containers were empty often. But it is value for your money.

This is not a hostel but a hotel, there is no vibe like in other hostels, but yeah if you only stay there for one Night no problem 😉
The atmosphere was dead. The hostel was miles away from the town centre and there were no buses back later in the night so we were unable to go out. Ended up cancelling our second night because the place was so boring, not even a proper kitchen!
worth the distance for the amazing views
Amazing hostel overlooking the city from a hilltop.
I really enjoyed my stay here. It's a little outside of the city, but well with the trip for the view the hostel provides. Big lockers, pretty clean showers, although there isn't a common area or kitchen.
It's on top of a hill overlooking and is beautiful! You do have to take a bus to get to the metro, but for the quiet and the view, we didn't mind. They have people who come through and clean every day and their breakfast is delicious. Their kitchen, however, is basically not a kitchen. It has a bathroom sink, a microwave, and some dishes. They didn't even have soap to wash the dishes! They sell already made food, so don't count on making your own delicious meal if you want to stay in a night.
Great hostel to stay at! I bit outside of the city but not a big deal at all (45 mins on bus and train from center) but perfect - with a beautiful view of Vienna, in a nice area, well priced and great staff. I will definitely stay here again if I return to Vienna.
Beautiful and relaxing place. Far from the city, end of the metro, to the end of a bus line, but beautiful spot. Spent most of my time doing yoga in the park area behind the hostel and looking out over the city.
A very quiet hostel outside of town. Good place to chill and enjoy the views but not so good to get around or to meet people.
