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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I honestly couldn't wait to leave. We booked a 'private double' room which was 2 uncomfy twin beds we had to push together. The room didn't look finished as the ceiling was still the bare concrete and the room alternated between Saharan and arctic temperates through the night as the uncontrollable aircon system changed it's mind. There were so many... More

There's a number of things wrong of this hostel so I'll start at the beginning. 1 - believe the hype. It's in the middle of nowhere. It's about a half hour train journey from Central station (directions to the hostel were also abysmal) as well as taking me around 45 minutes to get into Central Vienna by the U-Bahn. 2... More

The location was quite far from city centre. I have not tried the internet connection,but the room was spacious. No lock for locker was available, but luckily we have our room by ourselves. The breakfast was quite complete.

We found this hostel to be tidy and spacious however did not enjoy our one night stay here at all. As a couple, we were booked into a shared dorm which consisted of a double bed and bunks. On our arrival, there was another person who had already taken the double bed. He arrived back very late at night and... More
