Disappointing is the breakfast for €4.90 I got warm milk with my cereal and watered down orange juice. Bad form. The staff was great warm, friendly and very helpful. The noise level travels thru the staircase because the security doors are opened all the time especially from the reception area where a billard-table sits. Noises traveled up and down the halls. Better directions from the main station.

I only stayed for a night, but I had a fine time there. The facilities are nice, there are private bathrooms. Towels aren't included and don't go for breakfast in the morning. Staff was really helpful in describing how to get to certain places, I did not ask for recommendations of places to go though. There weren't outlets near the beds to charge your phone at night which was a minor annoyance. The hostel is really close to the subway too so it's really easy to get around from there.

Main drawbacks are the location (45 minute walk or 5-ish minutes on the underground) to the city centre. No guest kitchen eliminates the option of cooking at home. However, good value for money and it is clean so no complaints.

Stayed in a six bed mixed dorm for two nights. Toilet and shower by the room. Great big lockers to keep your luggage in, but bring your own lock. Me and my company was really disappointed at the location. The distance in Wien are very far so the hostel wasn't in the city at all. Gross madrases. Wifi only at reception. Only three wall outlets.

Its a nice place to stay, the location is quite good, you have subway station next to you and you can find some places to eat around. the cleanliness is ok, also with you get a room with toilet inside, can be a nightmare. In the summer time is terrible, because they don't turn on the air conditioner.

A great hostel. The ensuite bathrooms are great but can get a bit congested when the rooms are full. Rooms are light with good air flow. A good luggage storage room.

the hostel is very professional and so is the staff, the breakfast, the furniture and even the bed linnen - everything seems planned overall - a little bit boring, but no mistake

I planned to stay here for three nights, but after the first night I woke up to find bed bugs in and around my bed. I informed the hostel and even captured a bed bug to show them. They only gave me money for two nights back saying if I would have noticed them sooner I could have received all my money back. Also, the key to enter the rooms was not working properly I had to go to the front desk multiple times to sort it out.

It's a fine bed for the money. I was only staying for one night, and all I needed was a bed to sleep on. It was very a impersonal and nondescript stay.

We stayed in the 4-bed mixed dorm and the room was very very small and congested with not much ventilation. Not fun to be holed up there with the three other people.

the location is quite far from the city center, and the wifi in rooms is not working at all and have to go downstairs to use the Wifi. Staffs are not that friendly.

The hostel itself is very clean, the rooms have alot of space, the toilets and bathrooms in the rooms are very spacy and big which is great! I like that the hostel also has cheap prices and an all you can eat breakfast for some additional cost. The beds are also very comfortable! The best part about it is that it is only 2 minutes of walk away from the nearest subway station which means great connection for tourists. I will definitely recommend this hostel to my friends.

Wifi did not work in the rooms.. but you have sufficient place in the lounge to relax and wifi works there. Food wasn't impressive. I loved the staff at the reception, very patient and to the point.

Very nice rooms and feels much like a hotel. Nice breakfast for only €5. The staff is really nice and helpful. It's a bit out of the way from the inner city but only five minutes away from the nearest U-Bahn station. Great price for a very nice hostel!
