It was very clean. The problem was with the windows that they were locked. The food was ok but most of the times they made something with the food that has left for the previous day. There is a playroom with tv, billiards ,books etc.

It is clean but overwhelmingly 1960's post modern concrete design. Rooms are basic, if you want a change of towels during your stay you will need to pay for them. Reception is helpful and although it can get a bit noisy around mealtimes with the influx of teenagers it is a very reasonable price for a basic base in Vienna....

Despite the distance from the centre the hostel is extremely accessible using the tram or metro network. The hostel itself is very big with a huge common area with wifi, which is unfortunately not accessible in the rooms. As a result, people have a tendency to be glued to their phones and laptops, making the atmosphere down here a little...

Stayed in a twin bedroom(bunk bed). Rooms are minimally yet adequately furnished. Fresh linen is provided upon check-in. Only let down was no control over room temperature :( Breakfast is also okay. The Internet is available only in lobby area. One thoughtful thing was, vending machines in the lobby area for tea/coffee/toothbrush etc. Overall comfortable stay. Recommended for an affordable...

Been here with a tourist group. It is a hostel but it's quite comfortable. The food in the evening and in the morning was very good. Guy at the reception was tired of all the kids, but anyway, he did his best. There's a Lidl and the Danube very close to the hostel.

Very nice and clean hostel. They provide basic facilities in the room. Free WiFi is at the ground floor, so weak signals in the room. The provides very good quality breakfast. Nearest metro station is Hendelski, and then two stops away in bus 5 A and 11A or just 10 minutes walk. Bus stop is just out side the metro...

There are some rooms with your own toilet and some with shared toilet. Free wifi in the lobby. A nice breakfast spread that is included. Great value for money. Laundry is not available, so you would need to take the tram about 3 stops away to the nearest self service laundry place. Nearby bus stop, trams and the underground.

Unsure of whether this has been recently built but, if not, they’ve done a stellar job upgrading and renovating the place. I had a private room for 3 nights, at around €40 per night, which was like staying in a decent 2 star hotel room. The room was enormous, had two single beds and a spacious ensuite bathroom (by European...

It seems the hostel has been recently refurbished and it's great. Staff were very welcoming and friendly - the rooms were very spacious and clean however the beds weren't the most comfortable. The rooms could have been a little warmer. Not cold just not cosy after a rainy day either. Great shower and good sized bathroom. The free breakfast is...

The room badly needed cleaning properly (at least) before the guests arrive. There was hair in the "freshly clean" linen, in the bathroom. The hostel staff was not very friendly and welcoming. Doors do not open very easily with the keys and are a pain to work with. A tired guest when arrives in the hostel expects his/her bed to...
