  • The first shock was that there were only one power socket in a room of six beds, which was fixed with rentable extension cord, but it was still less than ideal. The room was really hot during the days (it was July) and the room was really small. This was more like a hotel type building with lots and lots of rooms and bar and kitchen downstairs, we didn't like the bar so much because the music was very loud but you could enjoy your drinks in the kitchen also. Good for partying, bad for talking.

  • It is so noisy in this hostel and the location may be close to the train station but it's very far from anything else. Dirty bathrooms and very uncomfortable beds. Staff was very nice and helpful though.

  • Loved this hostel, only bad thing was it was a little bit of a walk to the nearest metro. But you got a free drink coupon after checking in and you could play pool and fusball before going to the clubs!

  • The staff and facilities are great! Though the location is a bit far away from Westbahnhof station (around 10 to 15 mins walking distance), it really worth the price. Recommended!

  • Easily accessed from Westbahnhof with good access to food outlets and restuarants. Breakfast is available for €4 and is well worth the price. The staff are very helpful and having a 24 hour desk adds to the security. There is a bar on site and it was reasonably priced and a good palce to meet some of the fellow travellers. The main centre is about a 20 Minute walk but trams and metro are available if walking isn't your thing.

While most party-hard backpackers in Europe stick to the big cities like Paris, London and Barcelona, you might end up cutting your nights (or even your trip) short. These cities come at a cost and just one cocktail can run upwards of $15. Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
