Located in an apartment building not far from Deák sq. Pretty small, pretty quiet, clean, friendly staff (though some of them don't really speak English, which is somewhat less than stellar).

Dear Katharina, Thank you very much for your commertary and feedback, we really appreciate that you took time to write a review. Regarding our English-speaking staff, you must have met my mother, who is not exactly a staff member, so that's why it's forgivable for her not to speak English. Our staff consists of only 2 members, who are fluent English speakers of course,

Breakfast was very good, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, but unfortunately I thought security was rather poor - you don't get a key to your room, just a piece of paper that allows you to enter the building. The use of padlocks is absolutely essential if you don't want to get robbed!!

It's only the big dormitories which don't have locked doors. All rooms with 8 or less beds are locked.

Our 24-bed room was located very close to the city centre (but we've been told the other rooms are somewhat scattered over the city, so be aware when you book a room!), and even though we shared a room with a lot of people, there were rarely any queues for the bathrooms/showers and the facilities were clean as well. Nothing special, but for the price definitely recommended.

Please be aware that the beds in the 6-bed dorm are double beds, so you might not know who you'll be spending the night next to. Other than that, the location is very good, the staff very nice and helpful (but inform them about the exact time you'll arrive - just in case), only the bathroom could use a very thorough cleaning and a new shower curtain.

Diana, who ran the hostel during our stay, was very nice and extremely helpful. The rooms are comparatively big, but I imagine if the hostel is fully booked there'll be queues in front of the bathrooms. The location leaves nothing to be desired.

One of the best hostels I stayed in so far. Great location, enough showers and toilets, really really nice and helpful staff - and all for very little money! Definitely recommended.

Be aware that the different types of dorm rooms seem to be scattered all over the city. The 24-bed dorm is located right behind Museumsquartier, which is a great location. There's nothing to complain about considering this low a price for a hostel in Vienna.

This was our second stay at the hostel and we would go there a third time as well. The rooms are huge, have a kitchen and a bathroom (some have a separate room for the toilet), the staff are very helpful and the location is just perfect. They should think about repairing the second computer in the lobby, though, because there were queues at times.

The hostel is very close to Astoria metro station, which is a major convenience. It's beautifully located in what seems like an old apartment building; our 7-bed-room had a kitchen (minus the stove, but with a fridge) - very useful! The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was pretty clean as well. VERY recommendable for budget travellers!

We stayed at the Astor Victoria for two nights in an eight bed dorm and enjoyed it. Even though quite a lot of people have to share a toilet (which is the only aspect we disliked) it was clean at all times and we never had to queue. The showers were clean as well, and the breakfast provided was acceptable. If we had stayed longer, we might have used the fridges and brought our own food, though. The hostel being located close to Pimlico tube station and a number 24 bus stop made it even better!

This was our second stay at this hostel and while the breakfast was still disgusting and there were some people in our room who would giggle throughout the night, everything was fine. Best thing still is the location. But if they want their fire alarm to be recognized, they should make it sound longer. We thought it was an alarm clock or something. Nothing happened, though.

Breakfast for dormitory rooms is continental: tea, coffee, butter, jam, cereal, toast , milk, and orange juice, There is no curfew , people can check in or check out any time and it is very clear in our website. Some times guests do not follow the rules or policy in the room and they try to smoke , it is for the safety of our guest the alarm sound and this is the rule of health and safety.

We spent five nights in a twelve bed mixed dorm. Apart from the breakfast, which was absolutely disgusting and left us sick for a whole day when we first tasted it, we have nothing really to complain about. There were lots of nice people in our room, the bathroom was always clean, it was neither too hot nor too cold in either the shower or the room itself and nobody stole anything ;) The location nevertheless is by far the best thing about this hostel! Very close to both tube and bus stop.
