Hostel is 15 min walk from train station. 10 min into Vienna centre. Right next a market with plenty supermarkets nearby. 6 bed dorm with bathroom included. Room was clean as was rest of the hostel. Guest kitchen could be messy due to other occupants. Bar facility was good, cheep enough drinks. Laundrette facilities available and plenty of washers/dryers available. Staff were friendly and helpful. Decently recommend the free walking tour, very good. Hostel seem more group tours than solo people.

This hostel had a great bar and atmosphere with good facilities and lots of space and friendly staff. There is a luggage store as well which is helpful, however there is no aircon in the hostel so was very hot (there were two small fans in the large dorm but they didn't make a difference) and the bathroom could have been cleaner. The kitchen doesn't have an oven and is really hot - other than this, a good place to stay.

This place is amazing! Very clean and yes, loud, but that made the atmosphere and meeting people great. The staff is very friendly and help as much as they can. The hostel itself is maybe a 10 minute walk into the centre, but there's a really nice market right across the street and always something to do. It's also right next to the metro station.

Facilities wise, this is a very good hostel, very clean and big lockers. It did lack atmosphere though as it is such a big hostel. If your a solo traveller, I wouldn't recomend as there are a lot of tours that go through the hostel that keep to them selves.

Late night chanting in front of the hostel was a bit unnerving. Some kind of additional cooling for the rooms would have been nice, as during our stay it was 36 degree in Vienna. However that might fit into the price category of a hostel ;-) anyways stay was nice overall!

Loved our stay here, room was clean and spacious and staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great value, only criticism we had was that the wifi didn't work in our room.

The ensuite in our room was not clean when all 4 occupants had entered the room.

Very large hostel; makes it difficult to meet others as a solo traveler. Room and bathroom were modern and clean enough, but a little untidy; again probably because the place is so big!

The communal areas are very nice and the location good. The rooms however are in desperate need of air conditioning- as they were hotter than outside! The bathroom smelt badly of drains and had to have the door shut constantly. The shared bathroom caused issues so it would be good to have the alternative options for the bathroom or shower as they are not separated. A basic accommodation without any frills or extras.

Amazing location, just a short stroll to the city centre. Room was very spacious and large lockers work with keycard. Everything was spotless. Only downside to our stay was the the bar was full every night of various large contiki tours, this made it very hard to meet other travellers

Is it really that hard to buy more fans??? It was over 97 degrees in Vienna all six days we were there and the hostel only had one useless fan in our room. The heat inside the room was intolerable until morning, even with closing the windows and the curtains during the day as the hostel recommended. Otherwise the room was attractive and the building was well cared for. We tried to get clean sheets halfway through our visit but the front desk claimed to not know where the double sheets were.

Bed is a bit old. No AC during Summer. Elevator is slow in opening/closing door. WIFI is OK, not excellent, but functional, better than avarage hostel. Otherwise, it's an excellent hostels. Staffs are professional and helpful. My best hostel experience. Would strongly recommend to anyone.

Really easy to find and great location to get to everything. We stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm and it was the best we have stayed in for 3 weeks! Shower was amazing and bathroom so clean! Good atmosphere with great bar and lounge area. Wifi really good. Staff really helpful. Big lockers that were well secured. Only downside was that we struggled to sleep as it was so hot in the rooms with no AC.

Rooms were nice and very clean. Wifi wasn't the greatest which was a problem this trip because I booked everything through my phone. That was exceptionally frustrating. The best part of the hostel was the bar staff, they were excellent!

The rooms were extremely hot!!! One little fan is not enough for a 4 person dorm!!!

Great hostel, cool people and clean - only downside is no a/c or proper fans - just flimsy portable fans - and not enough for each person - 1 fan to 6 of us. Other than that, I would definitely come back - but a/c is needed!!!!

We only stayed one night here Found it easy to get to and quite central The only/ main downsides were he wifi and no aircon in the rooms I didn't really sleep because it was too hot Otherwise a great hostel! Loved the breakfast offered and the staff were really nice Would stay here again

Great location, right next to the market and a short walk into the city centre. Rooms were a good size but the bathroom was quite small. Plus there was no sink in the toilet to wash hands. Atmosphere was good - lots of space to hang out, happy hour and a free drink! I'd say the main thing that let the hostel down was the air conditioning. There were only two small fans in our 8 person room, so the sleep was quite uncomfortable. Otherwise it has everything you would expect from a chain!
