Liked: Clean. Quiet. Modern. Acceptable wifi on rooms. Bike rental service cheap and good bikes. Biking is a very good and safe option in vienna

Disliked: Far from center (25min walk). Bad neighbourhood. Has no atmosphere. Breakfast not worth its money, you can better eat breakfast out.

Liked: It was clean, warm and functional. Some reviews have said it's a bit far out of town but I don't agree - it isn't in the centre but it's very close to public transport which is incredibly easy to use, and there are also a number of good cafes and places nearby - including an excellent kebab stall!

Disliked: The room was tiny - there were two of us in a 4-bed room (bunk beds) to ourselves, but if there had been 4 people in there there would hardly have been space to move.

Liked: The hostel is on the U1 underground line and it is very close to the Inner City. It is a well decorated and colourful hostel and the rooms were spacious. I met some lovely people at this hostel. The facilities were good and clean and there were card keys for the doors.

Disliked: One member of staff would cut across my attempts to talk in German with him in English which knocked my confidence with the language a lot (I am studying German at uni) but the other members of staff were absolutely lovely and friendly and I couldn't have asked for lovelier people to have been there!

Liked: At first glance it didn't seem terrible. The staff were friendly enough, and breakfast was pretty good. The internet worked well in the common areas, but didn't always reach the rooms.

Disliked: The hostel isn't in the best neighborhood. I was harassed multiple times, especially by a mentally ill man who stood outside the front door most days. The hostel seemed to be catering more to older travelers and families than backpackers, hosting a lot of people who seemed to have friends in the area. The mattresses, pillows, and duvets were full of dust, and the grout in the bathroom was growing mold. I couldn't breath when I closed the windows at night, but opening the windows meant flies the size of my thumbnail.

Liked: Close to train station and Ubahn but very suburban area.

Disliked: They allow large groups of school children and Uni groups to stay here. They are very noisy and it makes the atmosphere of the hostel really bad!

Liked: Cleanliness. It is well organized. Also, the guy who was in charge during the night was really friendly and helpful when I needed some information or help.

Disliked: The old guy in charge during the morning was completely the contrary from the guy in charge during the night. He was quite rude. The location is not so good and the rooms are unconfortable and small. Besides, you have to pay for everithing there, even for using the computer and it is not cheap, like 1 euro per each 15 minutes. I guess it is an absurd for a hostel.

Liked: I highly recommend this accomodation. The vienna hostel is two minutes away from the "kepler station", which is located on a shopping street, where you can find everything. If this is not enough, you have a direct connectionat the "kepler station" to the famous "stephansplatz". The personal is very friendly and gives you great advice concerning shopping possibilitys, restaurants and night life. Furthermore, they fix broken things in your room immediately and without hesitation. The price for a room is totally human and you get even a breakfast buffet for 3.50 Euro. I had a great time at the vienna hostel

Disliked: Anna left no negative feedback.
