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 nice hostel, with fridge/microwave/kettle/toaster, and plates/cups/cutlery provided and washed up for you. Most of the beds weren't bunks, which was nice. It was an easy walk from the central train station with a small bag, or there is a train station practically at the front door if you have a lot of luggage.

    Loved this place. Really clean and quiet. Comfortable beds. Reasonable breakfast. Helpful staff. Right next to underground station also and easy walking distance to the main station. Only slight downside is that this part of the city centre is pretty uninspiring, but didn’t matter as underground station is 2 min walk. Highly recommended.

    I stayed for a night while on a layover. Easy to get to as there is a metro station right around the corner. Not in a very exciting area of town, but was perfect for one nights stay

    Central location near the Vienna Central Train Station and also an underground rail station for easy access to other parts of Austria and the city. Lots of dining choices nearby too for any budget. Helpful staff and also good amenities such as breakfast and drinks downstairs.

    Perfect place for a quick stop in Vienna, really good location that makes getting around the city easy, I didn't spend much time at the hostel so don't know what the facilities or vibe was like, was a perfect place for me. The staff were really helpful and nice so this was a bonus.

    Good location, outside city center but near a subway stop and shopping street. However, my room didn't have functional lockers, poor security. There is no atmosphere for friendliness or making friends here, it is cold and all about getting in and out. Decent price for Vienna. I've stayed at many hostels and never experienced the following: They put you right next to people in rooms with great acoustics, so if someone snores it is truly awful. No free breakfast, or even coffee. Wouldn't recommend

    There was a ton of trash behind the bed that made the room stink. It looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in months. The door knob fell off the door and the key card didn’t work consistently. There was only one shower for a lot of people. It would have been nice to have another public shower available to use.

    What a sh*t place. A long walk from any tourist attraction in a bad neighborhood (don't walk there at night). The worst thing was the beds - I initially booked because they looked good on the website but on arrival they were crappy mattresses, there was blood on the sheets (usually a sign of bed bugs) and I had to pick a lot of hairs off the pillow case which makes me wonder if it was cleaned at all (also you have to change the sheets yourself when you arrive). I will be telling people to avoid
