Alibi Hostel
Ranked #91 of 218 Speciality Lodging in Vienna
Reviewed 11 September 2011

The hostel it self was good reachable by tram and metro, we had a triple room with private facilities.
The beds where good for my liking and everything was clean. The staff was very friendly spoke good English and where helpful. The Kitchen was also handy and complete with pan’s and everything you need to cook a decent meal.

Where there any min points? Yes. There was no Wi-Fi in the hostel, only 2 public computers and there were no towels available (at least i didn’t asked and they weren’t in the room.) so all and all a good 7 out of 10. (Because of its value for money, the staff and the cleanness).a recommendation for a city trip.e

Nice address in Wien for little budgets (~20 Euros).
As it is a student residence, only open in summer. Thus no dorms, maximum is 3 beds.
Rooms are really comfortable, 3 spaced beds, a big desk and a nice shower.
There is a great kitchen at each floors.
A nice lounge on the ground floor.
Very clean
Location is not the best but still ok: 5 minutes by tram to Inner state.
Helpfull Staff.

Nice clean hostel with great common room where you can party all night long and staff was really helpful and gave us the best tips what to see, where to go eat when you don't want to spend all your money (which is not so hard in this city) and the most important thing where to go dancing.

I actually spent my honeymoon there. :) We needed some place cheap and all the "better" places were booked by the time we decided. Although it may seem quite far away from the center and places of tourist interest, the public transportation works wonderful and you can get there in less than 15 minutes. The room was very clean and equipped with a refrigerator, which proved to be very useful. The kitchen was larger and well furnished/equipped and the only complaint I have to make is about the other tourists, who were not so kind as to do the dishes after using them. :)) There was always someone at the reception and the staff was really helpful/friendly and spoke good English. The only inconvenience about the room was that they don't any double beds, just twin ones, and we had to move them ourselves, which didn't actually bothered us. The bathroom was really clean and there was running hot water.

I got all the help I needed and it turned out that everything written on the hostel's website was true. the staff members i met there were really nice and caring. the room was comfortable and clean. the kitchen was big and equipped (ok i didn't check if it had a garlic press but still).
so we had a nice stay there :)
