Absolutely charming, comfortable and modern hostel in a very nice area, close to Belgian Quarter, easy access to trams & metro. The design of the dormitories is perfect - it guarantees you privacy and aesthetic pleasure :) All necessary conveniences are included, the place is safe, the breakfast is full. Downstairs there is a cafe&bar, which suggests diverse cultural programme....

Helpful and friendly staff. The location is perfect - easy to get there even in the middle of the night. Very good breakfast! Towels provided, clean bathrooms. Large and comfy beds with curtains for extra privacy. I would definitely come back!

This is an awesome little hostel! We stayed in the super funky lego room. Both the room and the bathroom (great shower!) were modern and very clean. The staff were lovely and helpful. Our only regret was that we could only stay one night. We would definitely stay again.

This has to be my most favourite hostel yet!! The hostel is handily located near Ruldolfplatz trams and buses. There are plenty of bars and shops nearby. We stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm. The bunk beds are super big (loved it) with privacy curtains, power outlets and own light. There were large key lockers in the room for...

This was like a glamour hostel. Small, cozy, and intimate. Very clean also. Beds are big and comfy with a curtain that goes around giving you complete privacy. Lockers are huge. The staff are awesome and so helpful with anything you need. Didn't have the breakfast since there are restaurants and bakeries all really close. I wouldn't hesitate to stay...

This hostel is really nice and more like staying in a hotel! The rooms have different themes and we saw a few of them they were all cool. We had the lego room and had a big lego box and could make lego models on the walls and table. My favourite other room was the gone with the wind one!...

If you are looking for a typical hostel, please don't come here. Die Wohngemeinschaft surpass the typical hostel thing. Unique, cool, creative, stylish, are just a few words to describe this hostel. Each room has it's own design. Well, maybe design is not the right word, maybe I should say each room is a different world. We stayed in the...

I am impressed about what these hostel operators have created here. They raised hostelling to a new level. Whereas other hostels offer beds and a place to stay, combined with some community (which is all great), the guys here have created little worlds, if not even planets, one out of each room. It looks as if some very creative people...
