“ Great place with lovely staff. Stayed in a dorm and the room was clean, the bed was soft and the shower hot :) vienna-tip: If you got a couple of days here you should rent a bike from the hostel and take a ride along the canal. There are really nice "beach bars" and places to see! ”
Hey there, thank you for this lovely review! That tip about the DANUBE CANAL is a great one. A note to other travellers: the canal (which runs along the north side of Vienna's historic center) is a fantastic local summertime hangout, complete with the aforementioned beach bars, clubs etc (one, the Badeschiff, even has a SWIMMING POOL!), crazy graffitti and street art, and plenty of action day and night...just one of many reasons to visit Vienna in the warm months :). Happy travelling!!!

- “ Over the course of a month-long European backpacking trip, probably the nicest hostel I stayed at in terms of amenities, facilities, and cleanliness. Cool bar and common room, outside terrace, very helpful staff, and full kitchen were nice. ”

“ Close to the West-bahnhof (the main train station in Vienna) and very convenient location. Fairly cheap and an excellent place.
Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Clean, comfortable and everything we need are there. A good bar in nights. ”
Thank you for this great review! Come back and hang out with us again sometime - summertime is a GREAT time to hang in our bar or our lovely garden and sip a Mojito, Caipirinhas, Mozart Colada...mmm!

“ Enjoyed time there. A bit removed to city center but an easy walk. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The gardens were awesome. Nice place to relax. Great addition. Would stay there again! ”
Thank you so much for your review - we'll look forward to your next visit! I'd just like to add a little something about that walk into the center. Not only is it a nice&easy walk - it also leads you down the lovely Mariahilferstrasse shopping avenue. The 'Mahü' (as it's known to locals) is a beloved Viennese hang-out and mostly-car-free urban paradise - another part of Vienna that's not to be missed! Thanks again, and happy travelling!

“ Wonderful facilities, very clean and comfortable. We loved the garden and bar/lounge area and we had a very comfortable and quiet stay. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful and eager to answer our questions and give us suggestions and instructions. Location was nice, very close to the metro station so it was very easy to get into the center of town. We had a very pleasant stay and I would definitely recommend ”
Hi there, thanks so much for this great review! Come back sometime - maybe this summer, the garden will only get lovelier after all :). Until then, happy travelling!
