I stayed in a single room in one of their shared apartments for almost a week. The location was excellent, and the staff were very helpful with all my queries. But what stopped me from giving this 4 stars was the room - the door was warped so locking the door was a battle, the pillow was flat and the...

We stayed at the Happy Hostel for 3 nights in November of 2011. The booking was for a double private ensuite. The provided room was a large main room with queen bed, couch, table/chairs and a 2nd bedroom. It was more than we expected. We would stay there again without hesitation!

Very friendly and helpful staff who made us feel most welcome and were very helpful. Huge room with longe dinging kitchen and large bathroom was surprising and very clean. Almost didn't want to leave! I suggest anyone who stays here however not to visit the cafe west end near westbahnorf station. Big tourist trap. Cannot fault this hostel though! Wish...

I stayed with my partner at Happy Hostel for a couple of nights as part of a trip across Europe and found it adequate for my money. We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom which I was a bit dubious at first but needn't have been as we were only sharing with the occupants of one other room...

My cousin and I were on a budget and after much deliberation on review websites, we chose to go with the happy hostel. Clear instructions were provided by staff from the drop-off point by the coach to the hostel itself. We were lucky to have had the apartment-like place to ourselves for the first night and the second we had...

Last summer I spent few nights in Happy Hostel in Vienna. Well, there were items I was not satisfied. After my last year review I received an email from Happy Hostel, where they apologised to me and offered me better service in the future. In that time I hardly supposed that I will come to Vienna soon. Unexpectedly I had...

I really enjoyed my stay here, the room was pleasent, clean and even included a tv. The staff where also very helpful even supplying me with maps for cites I that i was visiting in the coming weeks. The location is a small way out of town but very good transport into the city centre.

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theatre decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.
