Hostelworld says

Situated on the Favoritenstrasse shopping mile, it's just a stone's throw away from the city centre. Then again, getting around from here isn't hard, what with U-Bahn Station Keplerplatz on the doorstep. After a hard days exploring, chill out in the bar, kick back in the lobby or call home on the free internet. If you have any energy left, hit the games room for a little pool, table football or PlayStation. Or if you fancy an early night, all rooms have a TV!

    very very clean, good services. not really a social atmosphere at all, lots of families and young kids as it’s partially a hotel too. tho i’d like to add, i ended up going to the Menninger downtown location by accident, and while i was there, the 2 front desk staff (i think their names were Bonnie and Pema?) went above and beyond to help me set up my sim card. The both of them spent almost an hour calling different places and helping my figure out what was wrong with it. was much appreciated ❤️

    Easy to find, Super convenient location near the train station and easily accessed from the airport. 30 minute walk to the center of everything. Staff was super sweet and very helpful, bed was comfortable and there were two bathrooms in the women’s dorm—v helpful! Could use more outlets for charging and breakfast/beverage were a little overpriced (but no worries/-grocery stores super close, too) Thanks for an awesome and easy stay! Recommended.

    Good location, good security, loads of locker space! Didn't really come into contact with many staff members to comment on that. There were loads of space to socialise but no one really used them, definitely more hotel vibes than hostel vibes. I would recommend staying here though, the breakfast was worth the money!!

    Location of the hostel is just awesome - U-bahn station, shops, bars, restaurants ... everything is just a walk away. Staff is friendly and very helpful. I see problem in lack of plugs for electricity and 6 lockers in room for 8 - not enough.

    The toilet stank of urine.. breathtaking! It was a six bed dorm which included a double bed (2 single beds pushed together) and 2 strangers had to share it. Not ideal.

    Need to push a button to be let into the building after a certain time so security was fine. Very far from everything but there is a Subway station a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Staff was good. Atmosphere was iffy. Not very social. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. Shower didn't drain which was nasty to use. I wouldnt stay here again

    There was really nothing wrong with the room/bathroom. However this is not a place to meet fellow travelers. Feels like a hotel, the atmosphere is seriously lacking. Also there is basically no kitchen. They have a small room with a fridge but there is no stove or sink. It felt like I paid the cost of a hotel but got a bad hostel instead.

    I read the reviews of this hostel that said it wasn't great, but I thought to myself, whatever, I'll deal with it. NO. DO NOT STAY HERE. When I booked it was the only hostel left in Vienna for those dates, but truly it was the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. It was incredibly expensive, and for what? No lockers, no free breakfast, outlets spread across the room rather than next to the beds, and bathrooms in the room which means tons of noise. Don't stay here unless you have to!!!
