The hotel was excellent for the price. Location was the best thing: close to a walking area and about 80 meters from the metro station. Staff was extremely helpful and welcoming, all young and energetic

This hostel is really good place! Location it's near to center and to metro station. Low prices for rooms. In rooms and reception you have everything that you need. Athmosphere is good and rooms are clean.

Ok so this is a very good hostal, it puts a roof over you're head and the rooms are great and above all clean. However first morning the cleaning lady walked into our room at 8am, I was getting ready, she asked if she could clean. I asked if she could give us 5mins to which she rolled her eyes...

Pretty average place to stay. It is a hotel and has hostel accommodation. The hostel was fairly clean though bathrooms in the room smelled (shower drain was clogged for a few days). The guest kitchen is under renovation, so you couldn't cook at all. You could use the microwave, fridge, and kettle. Location is a bit out of the city...

This hotel was easy to reach from the airport late at night by public transport and this was my main reason to choose it. Prices for hostel beds are also reasonable. As for location, it is not perfect as it is a bit far from the city center, but is ok if you spend all day outside and just come...

We stayed at the hostel for 2 nights in December. Checked in pretty late but that was not a problem with them. The rooms were big an clean. Most importantly the staff was really dry helpful specially Dominic! One thing they need to improve is the taste of the coffee

Very well run hostel located close to the main train station and not too far from the city centre. Everything was clean and organised. The hostel is no-frills and you will therefore have to pay for things such as access to computers and other small things. I only found charging for towels a bit substandard for such a good quality...

Location is a real estate cliche for a reason. We visited several cities on our most recent Europe trip, and we stayed in Vienna for 5 days. The location was less than 100 meters from the U-ban which was extremely convenient. And even better was the price less than $300 for four people for five nights total. The beds were...

The dorm was really nice and clean, the staff is super friendly and helpful, I really enjoyed my stay there! It's also very cheap, which is amazing in Vienna for travellers on a budget. Only downside: it's a bit far from the city center (about 40 min walk to the Ring), altough the subway is right at the corner
