I stayed in the Porzellaneum because I attended a conference at the University of Vienna. For this purpose it was perfectly located. Addtionally the hostel is close (within walking distance) to the city center. The staff is great and very helpful. The rooms are very basic and I think my room was (still is) a smoking room. There are toilets to share (man&women together) which aren't always very clean but ok. The shower room for ladies is ok but there are no curtains..
The student halls are conveniently located close to the city centre. However the accomodation is very basic and old. We were told off for using the kitchen on our floor and ended up using the kitchen on the floor above with the students staying over the summer. Most of the staff are lovely and happy to help- we only had a problem with the night staff. If you're looking for a fairly cheap trip don't stay in this area!
CONS = Shower room has no lock in the door and the several (4?) showers are together in a small area with no walls or anything between them so it is like a Gym shower no free wifi PROS = location good price really good 26UR per single private room, simple but not so small and really quite perfect if you only need to sleep there
reception men are perfect. they are very friendly...
