Liked: It was really very clean.

Disliked: The Hostel was noisy - maybe because there is only very limited common space to have fun after 10 p.m. There is almost no place to eat, drink, hang out around the hostel.

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.

Liked: I liked the breakfast and the little area with hot water for tea or coffee if you wanted it. The lobby was nice and the free wi-fi was a good option.

Disliked: I wished that the wi-fi was in the rooms too and not just the lobby. Nothing was provided: soap, shampoo or anything that I would normally expect.

Liked: Not much. It was clean and didn't have problems with other guests. Was easy to find getting off the Ubahn

Disliked: At arrival we were given sheets to put on the beds ourselves and then had to take them off at the end of our stay and carry them downstairs with all the other luggage we had. Was a big hassle. There was no wifi in bedroom only on the ground floor. Breakfast wasn't worth 3 Euro. There was no hand soap in the to wash hands after using the toilet. Wasn't close to city center

Liked: Clean Linen (no towel!!)

Disliked: Even Basic amenities like Wi-fi are not free. The rooms are crowded, hardly any space even to walk, and the management misses no opportunity to charge extra on any amenities. Basically you only get a bed to sleep in a crowded room, fresh linen (clean, I'll give them that) which you're forced to make a bed of yourself, shower and WC facilities.
