When I was there, the whole hostel was occupied by Koreans! So I couldn't really mingle and meet people because they all speak in Korean. But one thing I loved about the hostel is its mediation room. There is a piano, a guitar, and christian contemporary music sheets! I missed worshiping and spending quiet time with God during my backpacking trip, so it definitely was an oasis for me. I do wish they don't require tokens for hot drinks during breakfast though...
Wifi can only be used in the hall. The location is so so. Not really close to the center. Somehow, I always need to line up for service, maybe too few staff? But there is a huge common area, so definitely can meet people if you are outgoing. And I like the breakfast. One con of this hostel is that you have to pay extra to be a youth hostels member.
The room is small and quite crowded. Location is good and staff is helpful. You can do laundry easily. But you definitely have to line up for girls shower.
Out of all the hostels that include breakfast, Palace hostel has the best breakfast buffet for me!! They provide different kinds of bread, jam, sauce. And they have bunch of fruits and vegetable choices! But I didn't really like the reception and the decoration of the dorm. It is too simple. The corridor is kind of dark and scary. Like everyone here has said, if you are willing to put up with anything for the view, it's worth it. Great view of Vienna.
I love this special unique family style hostel. You can feel like you are at home here. And the decoration and all are just so homey that you would really love it! But if you are used to standardized style room with white bed sheets and standard bathrooms, this might not be for you.
I love this hostel. It's in a historical building. And the ceiling in the hostel is amazing. I loved the high ceiling and the royal vibe. I love the bathroom too! It's totally hotel style!! I am so glad I stayed 4 nights there to enjoy. One thing is that there aren't charger for the top bunk so u kind of have to scramble to find other outlets elsewhere.
I love the location! It is right across of the main train station. The 4 people girls dorm room is cute too! though the bathroom is a bit small. The other girls and I used the bathroom in the hallway. The breakfast buffet is okie. I would love to have more fruits and vegetable choices for 5 dollars.
The hostel staff are helpful and friendly! When I found out the people I was staying with were messy and really untidy, who left things everywhere, I asked to change rooms and the staff kindly arrange it. The location was only average, because you have to take the train from the main station, which costs some travel money each round trip.
