This hostel has potential, but when it's booked with middle/high school groups the experience becomes annoying. Yes it's close to the metro, but I had to take it to get anywhere. Not much in immediate surroundings. The 8 person dorm had a small shared bathroom (toilet+shower). Half of my room was sick people (got me really sick), hostel gave us fans because room got muggy. Bring hand soap! Nightlight and outlet for each bed is great. Lockers are a good size. Breakfast = continental - hot foods.

Hey there, sorry for having a bad experience with us :( but I hope you could still enjoy your time in Vienna :)!! The week you were here, whole Vienna and of course all our hostels were booked with Basketballschoolgroups because there was a big tournament in Vienna - I'm sorry that they got on your nerves :S but we support young sporty people :)! Hope you come back one day! All the best Kerstin

It is a cool place to stay if you are going as a group of friends. The bar is very busy and there were bands playing both nights of my stay. The first night there was a heavy metal band screaming very loudly, though, so it wasn't very pleasant. There seemed to be quite a few people who were not guests (I guess they were there to see the band). The breakfast was very good for EU 3.90. The room was big, clean and safe. It takes half an hour to walk to the city centre and 5 minutes from the station

Really good hostel, good location (right in front of the rail station), good breakfast (although you have to pay, but I think it's worth it)

I was not really impressed with the bed sheets. I didn't like that you had to put them on yourself (we struggled with them in the dark as another roommate was sleeping), and my blanket had burn marks all over it; I didn't feel comfortable sleeping under it with only a top sheet (no duvet cover). Facilities were great!

Hey there! thanx for your review! With around 240 beds it's not really possible to let our Housekeeping make all the beds and still keep the price attractive. Also a lot of people like the fact that they SEE that the sheets are freshly packed and sealed when they first use it :)About the burn marks, i can't say any more than my honest SORRY for that! I understand that it was in the middle of the night, but next time just come to reception and swope them for fresh ones :)!All the bestKersti

The hostel has a very good bar and big room. However when i arrived in the hostel i didn't have money in euros to pay, so i asked to the girl that works there if i could give her a bigger quantity in pounds as a warranty and pay the money in euros in the next day, as it was about 10pm. The girl was very rough and tell that she wouldn't do it, saying that i'm brazilian and i wouldn't pay her. Xenophobe is unacceptable is all situations, and even more in a hostel.

hey there, thanx for your honest feedback - without that we couldn't improve our service :)! I just talked to the receptionist who checked you in and she really apologizes - she really didn't mean it! She is a person with a special sense of typical viennese dry humour which not a lot of people get ;) But i can tell you she's very sorry and she didn't want that! I hope you still had a nice time and maybe coming back!? :) HAppy travels and all the best Kerstin

A very nice hotel with a great atmosphere. I highly recommend this place. Their breakfast is a little disappointing because it doesn't have many options for vegans.
