To start with, we arrived when the receptionist was out on lunch so waited for 55 minutes outside the building for her to arrive. When she did arrive, she was disinterested, confrontational and rushed through the 'welcome'. We were in the blue corridor round the back of reception on another street, which felt unsafe and unsecure, with the door opening directly onto some beds.. thankfully they weren't ours. The dorm was advertised as a 12 man, but in reality was a 48 man separated by a 'kitchen' (a dirty microwave and a worktop) and 2 male/2 female toilets/3 showers shared between us all. In particular the male toilets and the showers were seriously unclean, and the threat of a fine was plastered all over the walls - a 5 euro fine for not stripping the beds and a 50 euro fine for losing your key - seemed a bit over the top for a hostel bed that was not worth what we paid. (although it was the cheapest we could find in Vienna)
The only upsides were that we had good roommates, there is a tram stop right outside, and there is a computer with wifi. In the last room (room D) the wifi was really good.
Would not recommend.More
