It is a nice hostel, security was normal i felt safe. Little bit far from inner city but every hostel is like that. Really close to westbahnof and metro so yiu can go easily to inner city. Generally i enjoyed my stay j would recommend this place. Only down thing was that toilet at the room was not that nice but it could be my roommates' fault too.

good location (reasonable walk to all the main attractions), friendly and helpful staff, facilities wise- had to sit in common room for wi-fi and no stove or oven in kitchen!

Best thing about Westend City: EXCELLENT staff across levels! Everyone I interacted with was very, very helpful, and cheerfully so. Very clean linen. The security aspect was a bit anxiety generating; this anxiety was alleviated by staff members who were alert and proactive in helping me be safe with my belongings. Can there could be any systemic change to make the place safer, which would also help staff members? (Sorry that I can't suggest anything concrete here).

It's okay. Location is far from the centre, but on the plus side, the Habsburg palace is very close by so you can visit it early before everyone else does. Wifi only works in the common room.

In general this hostel is okay, but nothing more than that. It provides the essential with clean rooms, but there is nothing extra. The breakfast is a little light, especially considering it's not included in the basic price.

Staff was super helpful and really friendly, and there's a really great terrace. Only downside is that it isn't too central, but it's easy and quick to metro into town

They only accept cash, no credit cards. The staff were very short and uninterested in providing recommendations (restaurants, sights, etc).

Loud German tour group planning in my dorm at 7AM soured my experience.

The instruction of the location should be more details that shown at the website of Hostelworld. This helps guests find out the hostel more easy. There were very noise from 10pm to 1am because a group of people ( staff of hostel may be one or two of them ) talked loudly at the main entrance. I could not sleep well. I gave comment about it when I was checking out. The staff just said a party. I answered that I had stayed for three nights but very noisy every night. He didn't say any more.

If you are going to stay in Wien, stay here. This hostel is amazing. We made so many friends in the common room and the staff are above excellence, especially George who made us more than welcome. Cannot praise this place or its staff enough. 10/10 would....no, WILL stay here again! - Jordan and James.

Literally across the road from the station, but about a 25 minute walk from the best parts of Vienna. Nice staff, clean but no atmosphere, maybe we stayed on a quiet night though. Middle of the road

The hostel is on a relly great location in a city center and 3 min from metro station. People on the reception desk always in good mood and very helpful. Room and bathroom were really clean all the time, so everything was okay!

A little noisy and did not have a bar, so lacked that socializing aspect. Clean and comfortable.

Nice sized ensuite rooms. Near train station, 20 minute walk to centre. There was an issue with water during my stay which meant cold showers only. Breakfast is basic - give it a miss if not included.


66%

The showers ran out of hot water very early in the evening. Also because charging points were either in inconvenient locations in the dorms themselves or there were just a few, most of the people would charge their phones right outside the dorm where the charging points are. However because of this they tend to leave the dorm room doors open. It might have been just the people I happened to stay with at that point, but still dorm security was compromised. Bring a good lock for their big lockers.

Staff was extra friendly and helpful!

The eletric sockets are all placed near the door of my room that is so inconvenient. Also quality of facilities are average. Staff did not try to offer info on the city too.
