This is, by far, the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The hostel has two separate buildings with gardens making it more like living in an actual house rather than some chain hostels. Spacious room, awesome staff and VERY nice atmosphere. Dinner was simple but delicious.

Probably the best bang for your buck, clean, social, decent location, keycards working with no problem. It is like a 15 minute commute to Stephansplatz but I think that is doable. Absolutely would stay again.
