This is a great hostel, the rooms were very large and clean. One problem with this hostel is that the clientele were all very young 18-20, we spent some time down in The Lounge (Wombats - 2min walking distance), and there seemed to be older people, and the bar and reception area were gorgeous ! After 10pm you could not...

I stayed here because my adult (20ish) children wanted the experience of interacting with other backpackers and travelers. Our room had the correct number of beds but I will stop short of saying they were comfortable. We had a private bathroom and the shower door did not work properly so each shower taken flooded the bathroom floor. The windows on...

For a hostel, very good. Remember hostels are hostels, so 1* hotels. But very friendly and helpful staff, paid £10 for 6/bed dorm bed. Clean, well organised, great bar and food, would recommend. Location is ok, out by the Gurtel which is a red light area at night, but was ok, though wouldn't recommend a midnight arrival like I had...

They put us on the top floor and there was no wifi there. That wasn't a huge problem, and the pricetag of 14 euros was amazing, so we didn't complain. The bar was fun, but in December it was a bit empty. The location was average. We got the place because it was close to the train station, but it's...

Good location, clean, friendly, safe, fun, strangely quiet for a room on the 7th floor of a hostel with a bar on-site. Just loved it and do recommend it to anyone staying in Vienna.

A really good place at Vienna, good price (€12, which is really cheap for Vienna having booked just a week before) full of backpackers, and 5 minutes walk to a line 3's metro station, which brings you to the city center. They even offer you a drink (beer, wine, juice, coffee) in their bar!

If you have set yourself on Vienna then this is a good hostel. Very clean and upbeat, many people staying there never get beyond the downsatirs bar and the pool table. The bar is nice downstairs but honestly, get out and see Vienna's night life (which is actually one of its best features). The set out is good and relaxed,...

Nice youth hostel, with shower and WC in each room, a huge breakfast buffet and a bar inside.

We stayed here for two nights during the UEFA cup in Vienna. The facility and the city were overun from fans from around the world. The location to this hostel is really convenient a short walk from Westbhanoff. The only accomodation we found in this facility was in the common dorm, which was relatively comfortable as we only came here...

“Shared rooms are a great experience, but it's always a risk you take with random roommates. This was the one time I had a bad roommate experience, so I say take the risk and make new friends!”
