There was lack of fresh air in toilet and bathroom. But the rest are good. Vielen Dank für alles:)

Nice hostel! A little bit out of the way, but wasn't too hard to find! Would recommend this hostel to anyone.


Definitely a cool place to stay in Vienna if you are looking for a low-budget solution while getting perfect accommodation.

Wifi was really really bad. And the staff needs to be more friendly and helping. Just an average place to be in. room size is also too small.


Good hostel, great location. My only issue was our sheet sets- they were sealed in plastic wrap to appear "fresh", but both my and my partner's sheets had what looked like dirt smears on them.. No idea what t actually was. Apart from that, can't complain :)


A good place to stay for a while, but not for a long time. Nice and clean, liked the service - really helpful.

The hostel is close to the subway and relatively cheap; the room was clean and there was a bathroom and the toilet on the room. The staff was helpful. But there is no kitchen or cooking area in the hostel and because of the fire alarms, you can't use deodorants or other sprays in the room (cooking of course is also forbidden - we had a boiling kettle with us to make coffee/tea, but because of the rules we couldn't use it). Also the atmosphere could be better.


Very nice hostel. The first night we stayed the room wasn't bad. The second night the room we had was clean but the blankets and pillows need to be washed and replaced.


Nice place, near subway station, but some people who checked in are noisy talking outside the hallway. Lockers are noisy that might interfere people sleeping within the shared room. Clean and well maintained. Wifi internet access at 2nd floor are very limited very seldom get connected but in the lobby is fast. All in all it still cheap and nice place.

Really close to a metro stop, and quite clean. 4 bed room was really small though. staff were helpful, perfect for a couple nights.


Staff are nice and location is not too far from the Metro station,but they need to describe the direction to get there a little better because the street name change after crossing to other side of tram track even they are on the same road .


Good, clean hostel. A walk away from the city center or 2 stations if you take U-Bahn 1. Staff was friendly, you can use the underground parking for 10 Euro or park on the streets. WiFi is for free in the rooms which is a plus compared to other hostels of similar prices.
