Party chain hostel. Despite the bar downstairs my room was very quiet and I slept well. Everything was very modern and clean. If you're not keen on the cost of breakfast, on Mariahilfer Strasse turn left and you'll find some well-stocked grocery stores (5 min walk).

Had a very bad experience with a girl member of the staff. She obviously doesn't know how to behave with clients, I never had such an experience in any hostel before. I hope this is not reflecting the rest of the staff. Otherwise the atmosphere is young and noisy, not very secured.

It is a very colorful and vibrant hostel that makes you feel home. Breakfast is 3,90, but is really worth it, since you can eat as much as you can. You also get a free drink in the bar when you check in, and the staff will provide you with everything they can help, including very good maps. It has a laundry, guest kitchen is very good and the lockers in the rooms are really big. The room was ok, as well. It is a 10 minute walk from metro station. Highly recommend, although prices are not cheap.

It was great atmosphere at the bar. We went there for new year's and we made friends quickly. Better located than it looks if you chose the right path to go to the station. Very good value for money.

It was a great stay. The atmosphere was great, especially at the bar. The only thing that annoyed us a bit were the number of pans and pots at the kitchen - they were simply too few when two groups cooked at the same time.

Great hostel, but a little pricier than others! But it's clean, safe, comfortable, and staff are helpful. Not super close to a metro station, but very easy to find and it's an easy walk.

The stay was nice, the hostel is good. Even by being far from most of touristic places, the subway station is about 10-15 mins away from the hostel and this can lead you everywhere. Unfortunatelly the staff was really bad on giving information, it seemed they're trying to get rid of us as soon as possible. And because of that, one of the receptionists forgot to reserve the bedroom for one more night, as I asked; in the end, we had to leave the hostel.

During my stay I had serious problems accessing the web, since it was in trouble. I had to move to other places in town, needing access to purchase tickets. The atmosphere of the hostel seems a kindergarten, full of "fun" and noisy teenagers. As I arrived before check-in, was offered brushing my teeth in the bathroom of reception. Available kitchen is incredibly good.

A not very good location compare to another two wombat hostels. And the wifi isn't really working during my stay. one night the wifi system broke down and no one could use it. and busy reception that you have to wait for a while. but nice atmosphere at the bar on ground floor.

within walking distance to Wien Westbahnhof, however about a 30 minute walk to many attractions. But just get a 24 hour Metro ticket and you can do Wien in one day! Free towel, when requested. Customer service so-so, don't forget to pick up linen before taking elevator to your room. Need paper w/ wifi code & password. Only one electrical outlet in room, nice, loud bar area. Given map upon arrival. Need to give an ID as deposit (tip: give a drivers licence, not a passport!).

Good hostel, a little bit more of a walk than all the other nearby hostels. Standard chain-run hostel with too big a bar to meet people, best for groups. Staff is friendly and the kitchen facilities looked pretty good.

Good hostel. It's pretty big and has many guests. The bar is pretty cool and has a good vibe to it. However, the people that were in my room were slobs and that made the room feel much smaller than it actually is.

I came over Christmas, so the place was very quiet. The facilities were really good. Vending machines helped a lot when nothing was open. Kitchen was large and well equipped. Bar seemed cool. I thought that it was strange that each bed had its own light, but there was only one powerpoint in the room (not including the bathroom)? Whats up with that?

No proper kitchen makes is a major downside of this place, but the price is unbeatable in Prague.
