This place is underwhelming at every turn. The appearance is definitely nice enough and it is clean. The laundry machines also worked fine. The rest however... We rented 3 beds of a 4 bed room and I honestly don't think one more person could fit. This broom closet had a large light outside the window and the curtain didn't cover...

Generally don't expect much of hostels, but for being the most expensive one we've stayed in yet, this was a disappointment. The rooms were tiny, the breakfast was pricy especially for what you got, the shower head shot outside of the shower, the wifi was atrocious (this was something they boasted about- having good wifi), the halls echo from all...

Cheap. really OK breakfast (5€). clean. friendly staff. nothing special, just OK. but the thing that really annoyed me was that you have to actually buy a shtty 3 € key for a locker ... my advice is to throw it away immediately because it isn't secure at all.

I would warmly recommend this hostel. There is also a lift, that it is not so common to find in a hostel. The location is good. You can reach the centre quickly using the underground. There is a subway station just 2-3 minutes walk from the hostel. In that area there is more than a chain where you can have...

Pretty close to shopping center Columbus. Clean and nice. The lobby and buffet area was very impressive. There's also small breakfast buffet. You can buy some useful items for those who travel with budget or backpack travelers from the lobby like travel size shampoo and small lock and key. Also staff was helpful and cool. I stayed there for one...

I would warmly recommend this hostel for a low budget travel. The location is OK, near a subway station and not far away from the central railway station and Belvedere Castle. Although small, the room was clean and tidy, the hostel personnel very friendly and we had a great time, without any inconvenience. Hard to tell if we could find...

This hostel is located in a quiet neighbourhood and when it gets dark, it can be quite scary and creepy to walk back. This hostel is one of the closest to the Wien Hbf - about a 20 min walk. Although it is not near the city centre, it also means that food in the area is pretty reasonable. I...

Good quality hostel, cheap and cheerful. We stayed as a couple for a couple of nights. Breakfast was good quality and paid for in the booking. The location was fair, but it was quite out of the way, but near the main station. Fair quality. Not amazing, but clean, comfy, and a good place to crash.

I've been to way better hostels for way better prices. Look out for hidden costs, no Wi-Fi on higher floors, no kitchen, poor service and Spartan rooms, with series of problems. I wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone.
