The rooms were clean and so the bathrooms however they were very small compared to the number of people. The common areas were spacious and nice. The hostel is placed in the heart of the city, 2 min from the metro station in a shopping area. Recommended for backpackers and quick stays

The hostel itself was pretty decent, clean and the staff were welcoming. It's a good option for whose who can't afford the high prices of the city centre as there's a Metro station about a 5/10 minute walk away where you can get a reasonable 3 day pass for seeing all the sights. However, the wifi is completely non existent...

The atmosphere is not very good, especially for young people and the stuf was unfriendly and a little bit ironic. The location is fine because it's closed to metro station but the neighborhood may be a little dangerous at night.

Good quality and quite low price for being vienna. The 6 people rooms have the only problem of having 1 toilet. The lanundry is expensive but works well and the breakfast is really worth the price. Internet works bad in the rooms and in the hall is just ok. Very good connections to the centre and the area is not...

It's clean , staffs are friendly. But everything additional need to pay eg breakfast , towel, padlock .....bit far from city centre , it's a location where u must get a travel pass. I gave 3 stars as I think there will be hostel with better deal with these qualities.

“The wifi doesn't work in the rooms. It's better to use it in the common area on the ground floor.”
