    Very Good

    This place was not nearly as bad as I expected based on the ratings. It was a comfortable place to sleep and shower between traveling. Bathrooms were tiny but clean. There was an outlet by my bed to charge my phone. I had to check in late and was able to arrange that over email. The only problem I had was that the hostel's emails were sent to my spam so for a while I though they weren't responding to me but that's not their fault. It might not be as nice as other places but it's a good value.

    As the hostel's name says, it has good location which a HUGE plus. Close to city center, metro, shops and cool bars. Staff was polite and helpful. I liked that hostel had a precise description of how to get there from airport. There was a kitchen with tea/coffee/milk. Hostel also has fast WI-FI and public computer free to use.

    I understand that it's the cheapest hostel, but the staff can be more friendly. They speak in a sense we are burden on them. Also, the bed I was given was in a very bad shape..... The springs were all out and it didn't let me sleep properly..... Not a good experience

    The beds were squeaking all the time, especially if you had an upper bed. There was only one toilet for the whole hostel and the kitchen was dirty when I wanted to eat. The key for the door was very inconvenient because you had to open and close the door every time you wanted to go to the bathroom so there were times when the door stayed open. The place for locking my bag was really small and my backpack could not fit. It also didn't have any locks.

    No staff at the hostel, weird hours, no response to emails until day before, one of the rooms is literally right on the street, the beds are 1 door away from the street. The staff is friendly, and the location is not very far from Museums Quartier.

    The fact that the reception for check-in operates only for some specific hours, it's unacceptable. Better to give the codes for self check-in or at least have a place to store the luggages, if you don't want to work properly. Even though we were waiting for the reception to open again, we were trying to reach the place before 16.00 which closes again. We called them to inform them that we are going, and their response was very rude by saying that we close again at 16.00.

    Very unimpressed with the staff- no friendly faces to be greeted by and took note of multiple rude comments while checking in. I’ve been trying to get in touch with them for about 6 days now needing to check if I left my wallet in the room (very much needed to get home)- and no emails have been answered and the website phone number does not even connect. I’ve never had service like this with a hostel, if you’re looking- you could find much better options for Vienna.
