Walk in through the door of the hostel and you get the feeling that it's going to be a good stay! The heating is pumping as there's snow outside, you can help yourself to hot apple and cinnamon tea as much as you want and the staff are upbeat and cheery. I was offered extensive advice on how to get...

Wifi worked great throughout and the showers and toilets are clean and comfortable. The staff are really friendly and helpful and...

一進去櫃檯人員就問我會不會渴,還直接倒水給我喝,checkin的時候超級無敵熱情的跟我講解非常多事情,包括景點餐廳交通當地小技巧。房間非常的乾淨,雖然你可以感受的出來房子是比較舊的,但是因為設計過的裝潢造型,你會覺得很新穎。房間裡面有置物櫃,提供免費鎖頭,最厲害的是置物櫃裡面還有插頭可以充電非常貼心。房間裏除了浴室外還有一個洗手台,這樣別人在洗澡上廁所的時候還是可以刷牙化妝之類的。地理位置很好,旁邊餐廳超市都有,走去車站10分鐘內,那個站是大站,去哪裡都非常方便。我遇到大概五個左右不同的櫃檯人員,每個人都超級親切,讓妳覺得被重視,整體住宿非常的舒適。The location is good and convenient, walk to the station in 10 min, there are many restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The room and the restroom is super clean and pretty. You can see the building itself is old, but because of the renovation and the awesome design, you will like the room for sure. There are some lockers in the...

I needed a hostel for one night - everything went smooth. Friendly stuff with great English, tidy room, good wi-fi, nice people to talk to in the common room and sweet decor - everything was perfect. I wish I stayed longer! Highly recommendable.

Comfortable hostel and really great lounge and kitchen areas. Everything is nice and clean. Rooms and lockers are super convenient, with plug points inside lockers and next to beds. Staff are friendly and helpful and always there. Good location - short walk to Westbahnhof and not far from many of the sights of Vienna. Stayed there twice and would definitely...

I travelled alone and I felt very comfortable at this place. Individual room with private bathroom, it was small but with all-the-necessary and including perfect temperature within the room (even at low temperature outside). The breakfast is quite normal but you can also use the kitchen. There is an inner terrace that should be nice with good weather ;)

Friendly staff, I was offered water and tea when I first arrived which was a lovely touch. I stayed in a 6b female dorm, room was spacious with clean bathroom and additional extra sink in the corridor between the bedroom and entry door. Big kitchen and free lockers to store your bags on check out, free computer use as well....

The bar area (with their own microbrew!) with adjoining kitchen, couch area, and eating dining room makes for a great place for solo travelers to meet each other, and swap stories. I came because I ran into one of the volunteers when backpacking in Berlin and he gave me the name to look up when I got to Vienna. Absolutely...
