Liked: The hostel is pretty close to the west station. It has free wifi but it is spotty. Everything about this place is mediocre except the cleanliness. The room and the bathroom were absolutely spotless ans bed was pretty sturdy. (Didnt make noise when you climb up on the top bunk)

Disliked: Crappy wifi. Noise from the bar at night can be quite loud.

Liked: Nice cosy room (just 4 girls) with good sized ensuite bathroom, close (5-10 mins walk) to main Westbahnhof (west train station) - you can also even go 1 stop by tram to get even closer, bar with pool table and cheap beer.

Disliked: TERRIBLE WIFI - sort it out!!!, kind of worked in the morning but no longer in the afternoon and evening, which makes staying in contact, city research, making new fb friends etc. v difficult. It could get loud outside - even on the 4th floor from people partying late at night. You (hostel!) need to keep people inside or Properly! quiet outside after 10/11pm - especially for the residence of the area, it must be nightmare living near there.

Liked: The room was nice. Had good facilities downstairs and a nice atmosphere.

Disliked: In addition to the bar, it would be good if there were a quiet chill out area also. More communal toilets and showers would be good as the room showers/toilets would often be busy.

Liked: Cheap.

Disliked: Bar on site = stepping over puke on the sidewalk. Also this hostel is in the middle of a residential neighborhood--no place for a nighclub! The apartment building across the street had a sign that basically pleads with hostel stayers to be quieter as they have children who are trying to sleep. The hostel itself was fine, but I felt terrible contributing to a business that didn't appear to respect it's neighbors.

Liked: Good rooms, private bath. Good lockers, good wifi. Breakfast is not free but is buffet so its good enough.

Disliked: On sundays, there are a lot of checkins and its only one person of the staff. The process for checking in is about 15-20 minutes per person, so we have the wait almost an hour just to checking. There are not enough energy points to charge your devices. Only one for six bed room, not fair at all!

Liked: Our room was clean and new, as were the kitchen facilities and communal areas. The bar area was nice and had great happy hour specials. The staff at the front desk were really helpful and lovely, and very knowledgeable about the city.

Disliked: The location wasn't great and we felt quite unsafe walking around at night. The staff in the kitchen were like vultures in the morning. The kitchen is attached to a communal area where breakfast is served but my boyfriend and I bought our own breakfast and ate it there, which, I should say, you are completely allowed to do. Every time we did this the staff gave us dirty looks, glares, watched us like hawks - seriously, we'd bought our own food that was cheaper and much nicer than the overpriced and stale-looking breakfast they were serving there and we weren't going to steal it! We also had a problem with the security. When you leave the hostel you could hand in your keys at reception (or risk a 50 Euro fine for losing them!). When you return, you merely ask for your number (even though you have a guest card, they never asked to look at it). We were given the key to another room at one point (we were 60X and were given 50X). They needed to have better security measures in place because the lack of care for safety of rooms could end really badly. I was also disappointed at the abundance of sexualised advertising for events and tours in the hostel but hey, what can you do about that.

Liked: - Good location within ten minutes walking distance of Westbahnhof. 20 minutes to Schonbrunn Palace - Breakfast was a decent spread for 3 euros 90 - Rooms fairly clean and okay size - Wifi in the room was good

Disliked: - Bathroom in room wasn't that big or clean - felt a bit claustrophobic - At night it got very noisy in the street outside because of other guests smoking and drinking outside and their voices could be heard even with the windows closed - Staff at desk were quite rude/unwelcoming
