Liked: Secure lockers, comfortable beds, large kitchen.

Disliked: You can't use the kitchen until noon, and even then they ask you to sit in the bar area so they can clean. Also, this isn't the hostels fault, but our food was taken. With such a large hostel, they cater to more than just backpackers, and I think there was a lack of respect for other travelers.

Liked: I loved everything about this property. From the staff to the atmosphere. Was worth the money for sure. It and associated Wombats Hostels will be the only place I stay in Vienna and anywhere else they have a hostel.

Disliked: The fact I had to leave this wonderful hostel was what i disliked the most. I almost didn't leave.
