We are located on the shopping mile Favoritenstrasse not far from the city centre. You can reach the Stephansdom, the Hotel Sacher or the Staatsoper by U-Bahn in just 10 minutes, and the Schoenbrunn castle in 15 minutes. The U-Bahn Station Keplerplatz on the U1 line is virtually on our doorstep. It's a 20 minute walk to Schloss Belvedere and the Botanical Gardens.

Only stone's throw away from us, is the Vienna Mainstation. So you can always enjoy excellent transport connections.

In setting up the house, we spared the rustic oak ambiance and limited ourselves to modern, simple furniture. The house still exudes typical Viennese charm, not least due to our staff, always at your side with help and advice 24 hours a day.

The Hostel boasts of numerous public areas of which you can freely avail yourself. We do have a great selection of Snacks: sandwiches etc. All this is available at our bar, as is a typical Wiener Bier - and international company at no extra cost.

Our game room offers pool, table football and table tennis - whether for an international with the other guests or a friendly amongst yourselves. The cosier alternative: just put your feet up in our lobby, relax, or chat away with your friends at home at our internet terminals.

We offer accommodation in single and twin rooms, shared rooms or dormitories. All rooms have their own bathroom with a shower and toilet, and equipped with a tv. Shared rooms have, separate showers and toilets. No need to bring bedding - this is included in the accommodation.
