The location was amazing, so close to transport. However, the kitchen facilities were a bit unclean.

We liked this hostel, in my opinion the room was perfect, bigger and very nice. We were in the fourth floor, the hostel are many facilities and the staff is very friendly. It's near at "Schönbrunn Palace", I think is a little far the city center for to walk, we bought the ticket for the underground, perhaps if were summer we could walking ;).

This hostel made my experience in Vienna the best possible. The staff are very helpful and friendly, it's very clean and has a wonderful atmosphere with a pub plus you have the chance to head to the base wombats hostel located 1km away... There you will find a pub that usually goes until late...

Very good location, just a few minutes away from the Westbahhof, and one could take the tram to the Schoenbrunn from the door.

This hostel was huge and had a nice relaxing vibe! Wifi went down on Christmas so no one could contact family, that was terrible. Very secure place, needed your key to even get into the hallway. The shower head was moldy though.

Everything was good, but don't get the breakfast; it's not worth it.

The staff was friendly but my room was filthy. This is more like a hotel setting then a hostel fill. I honestly wouldn't stay here again.

Only stayed for one night but the staff were excellent and great value for breakfast. Bit out of the way for tourist spots but easily accessible via train.

Hey, Everything was perfect, except the very strong cigarette smell in the room. I've seen written on the door that smoking in the hostel area is highly prohibited so I guess you are also aware of this. Another thing that we only could open the window in a tiny angle( seemed to me that it was intentionally fixed like this to prevent people climb out to the emergency stairs ...) which did not helped our battle against smoke odour. Neverthless, it was a really good decision to pick your hostel!

I would gladly stay here again. The location is perfec for accessing Vienna's well connected underground, as well as for going out to the Austrian country side.

Great hostel, close to Westbanhof train station and walking distance to main shopping mall/attractions. Room was big and spacious, as was ensuite. Helpful staff and plenty of brochures ect. Never made it to the bar so can't comment there but the breakfest for 3.90 pound was great! Only issue was the wifi dropping in and out but everything else was great and would recommend/stay again.
