Accommodation Information

Al photos shown are just samples. Your actual apartment/room might differ in style and shape.

It is a small hostel with only a few studio apartments/rooms. There is no elevator. It is a very old but typical house. The rooms are small. The kitchen corners are basic: 2 hotplates, fridge, sink, some dishes. The bathrooms are narrow and have a shower and toilet. The beds may be single beds or good double bed sofas. There is no TV in the rooms.

Most of the rooms have free wi-fi.

The single room has also a small kitchen corner and a private shower and toilet, but it is up on the attic and the stairs up there are very high, so it is recommended only for young healthy guests! In summer it might be warm, so there is a good cooling fan.

Kitchen equipment: it meets the very basic needs of viennas cooking needs. we do not have any items which might be used in kitchens of other regions. so pleasedo not be upset, wehen you do not find similar items as you use to have at home
Beddings: the same applies to beddings, there is different ways of beddings all over the world, we have vienna style of bedilinen and covers and pillows.

Prices: for washing and drying your laundry the complete price is 8€.
As some guest complained about the price for their laundry, we would like to let you know the reason for the price:
*) the price covers both: washing & drying
*) water in Vienna is extremely expensive, as it comes from mountains more than 100km away, its clear & pure water from the Alps
*) the price of euro 8,- does not even cover all the costs arising from water and energy consumed by washing and drying
In other placees the washingmachines reuse allready used water, which we think is unhygenic. Fresh and pure water has of course a different price than reused water.
