We went there with ESN Rijeka, we was 60 student. The rooms was okey, not too sleazy and not too luxury. It tookes 20min with metro from city center of Vienna. A big plus because every room had they own shower and toilet ! But in the shower there wasnt any floor drain so the floor was wet all the...

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.

Terrible, rooms are too small, not hygienic, dirty. Terrible breakfast, wifi connection is weak. Had a beer in the lounge room and the staff didnt like it after 10 pm. We had to make the beds on our own and tey were full of hair.

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.

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.
