Really dirty place, very poor breakfast for 5€, 20min wifi free can really be called wifi free? Shared bathroom means 1WC for so many rooms (smelly by the way) and 1 room with 4 showers every 2 flats... Anyway, staff were helpful to guide us around Viena. Thanks for that.


Really enjoyed the stay here, student accommodation so it is private in most rooms. Only problem was that although it was value for money you had to pay for internet or use a very slow computer. The man on the desk was really helpful in getting around as it is easier to get the tram into the center. The area around had a few bars and shops. Only one shower per floor which does mean a wait and are strange although can be locked from private use.


Showers only on every other floor and kitchen only on 4th. Cleanliness generally good but kitchen was filthy!!! Don't go if you want to cook!! Pans out away full of an inch of oil and grease!! But if eating out it I a really good!! Staff excellent especially the guy with the pony tail (sorry forgot his name) but he deserves a raise!!


Was only there for one night but it wasn't a memorable experience. The place was fine, the room was comfortable and the staff were perfectly pleasant so if you're just looking for a place to stay it's okay but if you're travelling/backpacking and want the opportunity to socialise then maybe somewhere else would be better suited. We asked at the hostel for recommendations on places to go but the response was fairly limited and the places they identified didn't really pan out.

This hostel was more like a hotel but with none of the luxury. The common areas were expansive but empty, and there was no facilities for self-catering at all, not even a kettle for cups of tea. The free computer was slow, and wifi costs money. They gave me my own room even though I booked a dorm, which was clean and a bargain BUT it made it impossible to meet anyone, which was important as I was travelling alone. The staff seemed bored and uninterested helping travellers.


It's not a hostel - more like a discount hotel. It looks like a School dormitory. Location is okay. You can walk to the City center, but it might take you 20 mins at least. The atmosphere is poor. They're got a cozy backyard which is a plus, but inside the hostel/hotel/School dormitory, it is seriously bad. Nothing cosiness at all. Next time I'm going to Vienna, I'll definately find another place to stay. Especially a no-go for solo-travellers. No chance of meeting new people at all.


That's a cool place to sleep. Internet access is extremely expensive (5 EURO/DAY) and there is no atmosphere.


Nice place, on an elegant street just outside the Ringstrasse, very reasonable prices, helpful staff.


Location is good. 5 min walk from subway station and walking distance from super city center. Unfortunately, no free wifi but you can use old pc for free. Also there is a nice backyard with tables.


The room itself was nice and relatively clean. The showers were communal and not very nice. The building itself is used as a college dorm during school terms. It was overpriced and not very conveniently located. They charged a ridiculous amount for wifi access and the staff wasn't very friendly or helpful.


It is like a student dormitory, the rooms are a bit old, but calm. The staff is really kind, with the facilities everything was all right! It is close to the main attractions as well, so thumbs up!


there were no free wireless thats made me unsatisfied and no kitchen
