    Good hostel for Vienna, not the partying hostel but great if you want to be in Vienna for a few days and have a secure place to stay. There’s no air conditioning which is rough in the summer but other than that it’s a pretty solid hostel.

    The Hostel it is very near to the metro station Keperplaz, and one station distance to the Central station Hauptbahnhof. From this station in 20 min. you are the airport. It is a problem with the cleaniliness at the bethroom.

    Overall I very much enjoyed my stay here! The location isn’t super touristy but is literally steps away from a metro station which was very convenient. The facilities were clean and the staff were friendly. This is a very quiet hostel. But I had no issues meeting people in my room. My main complaint about this hostel is that it lacks air conditioning and gets very hot in the summer. Even with some small fans and open windows it was still hot in the room. Overall a very decent stay though!

    Clean and safe hostel but there was no social experience or hostel vibe and it’s about a 45 minute walk to the city center. It is very close to the main train station.

    This was an OK hostel. It was clean, and the staff was friendly. The location was in what felt like a little sketchier area but very close to a tube station and major train station. The drinks at the bar were very cheap and they had some little snackies for purchase. It was over all a fine place to stay.

    It's the low quality version of the meininger Franz here in vienna. It's pretty much the same but everything a bit worse than in the other one. Beside that it was all okay.

    They gave me something I didn't pay for. There weren't any bed for me, they gave me a room with different number of beds that what I chose, when I entered to the room it was like a private room of a hotel with a SHARED bed for 2 persons and a sofa not comfortable to sleep in. Everything was occupated by people, there was no space for me, they don't gave me bed sheets. I complained 'cause it implied to sleep in the same dirty bed not maked with an stranger and they didn't give me my money back.
