    The hostel is located in a very good location as it is right in the centre of the city and easily accessible to the city centre and to the commute by walking. Nice and clean place and the staff were super helpful and friendly which makes the stay extra enjoyable.

    the name doesn’t lie at all, it truly is in the best location if you’re interested in doing most of the touristy things in vienna. the owner was super friendly. the hostel was really clean, beds were comfy, and the over decor was beautiful. you should book this place while it’s still cheap cause i’m telling you, it’s gunna go up soon enough. 3 things to note, the hostel should get some paper towel, extra toilet paper somewhere, and atleast a toaster oven as there wasn’t a stove or oven.

    I thought this was a good hostel. Very clean, aside from some bugs on the walls. The rooms were quite small, and there weren't any outlets near the bed, so you had to put your things on a charger on the table. There was a "kitchen" but no oven or microphone, but a fridge, sink, and some instant coffee with an electric kettle. Beds were comfortable, the showers were amazing, and the common area was just a table and chairs. Great location and only a 5 minute walk from the metro.

    A very cute and funky hostel! Has a fun vibe but quite small - no bar and no large common room for parties or anything (and no organised social events). But very clean, well located and has everything you need. Only downside is that there aren't power points (or lights/privacy curtains) on the bunks, which is a little annoying. But the staff were very lovely and accommodating. It's definitely a groovy little place if you want a chill and affordable time.

    Very Good

    Vienna has very few hostels in the city center and this was the cheapest. The building was new, nice and clean but the kitchen was very limited and the atmosphere sucked. No one was particularly friendly and it had much fewer young people than any other hostel in Austria I stayed at. There was also a hidden fee of 1.5€ that was not disclosed on the website for people only spending only one night.
