  • I cannot rate this hostel highly enough. As a woman travelling alone it was a haven; safe, clean, friendly, bright, intelligent and providing everything one could need. Not being a young student it is difficult to get accomodation that is both personal and private without costing a fortune. So thank you for a perfect stay.

  • I can't say enough about this hostel. Friendly staff, beautiful bar and hang out room with games, instruments, books, cheap alcohol and such fun people. I loved my stay here and the staff was so helpful and accommodating when I asked to stay another night. They found a room for me in no time, it was so easy and stress free. The location is a teeny bit outside of center city, but it's easy to find from the train and bus, and there are fun bars in the area. Just a short tram ride or walk to town.

    THANK YOU for this lovely review! I just a quick note on our location: we're just a few minutes walk from the lovely Mariahilferstrasse, Vienna's most popular shopping avenue - this gorgeous mixed use/pedestrian space will lead you all the way to the historic center. Plus, as you say, there are plenty of awesome bars, restaurants & clubs in our very own neighborhood - so no need to jump on the bus to get in on some Viennese action! Thanks again, and happy travelling!

  • Had a great time during my stay, the common room/bar is a great place to hang out and connect with other travelers especially through music!

  • This hostel's awesome! The 6 bed mixed room is huge, with a lot of space & outlets :) The bathroom is just above the top! The shower was very clean and the whole bathroom was very well equipped! The breakfast was OK, but I ate 3x bread w/ jam because I don't eat cereals. So I would change breakfast a little bit, but despite, it was very delicious :) When I bought breakfast the ladies there were very smiling, helpful and delightful, a great way to start a day! :) I highly recommend this hostel!

  • Great place, such a good vibe. One of the best hostels that I've stayed in as a single traveller, so easy to meet people and have a chat over a beer at happy hour. Really really enjoyed my stay here.

  • 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!!!
