"Location was fine, you can start and easy walking tour from there. Double rooms are very good although a former guest left a red underwear in our room :) Really helpful staff!!!"

Liked: Rooms were very clean, good en suite bathroom.

Disliked: Appeared to be empty student dorms being rented out for the summer, so there was very little character, even in the bar. We spent nearly all of our waking hours outside the hostel.

Liked: It's close to Westbanhof (a public transport hub). It's clean and the beds are OK. The bathroom was inside the 4-people room, so it's not likely to be jammed in the morning or so.

Disliked: It seems to be a student dorm used as a hostel during the summer, so it's not completely hostel-like, meaning that it's not the typical small friendly place to socialize.

Liked: The friendly staff were outstanding! Each receptionist I interacted with was eager to help and went above and beyond to help me (looking up locations, printing maps, giving directions, giving suggestions, etc.).

Disliked: Didnt like that tnere was one key per room. Didn't create problems for me or any of the roommates, but it definitely has the potential to be an issue. Also, the room's amenities weren't great: only one power outlet, shower didn't drain (ankle deep in water--yuck!), no lockers in the room. Also, atmosphere was like a converted dormitory. The bar's staff are also great--super cheerful--but again, the bar itself is severely lacking in atmosphere. Seems like a senior center pub or something. Also, breakfast is 5euros, and should be free for the selection (cereal, croissants, juice basically). Overall, would recommend for one night passing through, but not multiple nights.

Liked: Our private double room was quite big, and the shower was in the unit. The breakfast was plentiful, for a reduced price of 2 euros (regularly 3.90).

Disliked: There is a pub nearby, and in the evening-night it could be noisy.

30 July 2012 Mari would recommend this property

Liked: It was cool that for 20 euro we got a 3 person room to ourselves, along with bathroom! That's not something you can normally pull off, especially in a popular city. And the room itself was pretty nice, it had a little desk, big windows, lots of storage area. Everything was clean. We had a good time there and it was easy to get to the city.

Disliked: I felt a liiittle mislead about the security- there is an "area" for your luggage, but it's just like, cubbyholes in the breakfast room. Luckily you can get lockers for pretty cheap (1-1.50 euro), or keep stuff in your room if you're with people you know, so it wasn't a big deal. The bar is cool in that it is cheap, but not very hopping if you're looking for a real party place. Breakfast was not that great considering you have to pay for it- it's what I would expect from a place that includes it in the price, but I guess Vienna is a little more expensive than many cities.

15 July 2012 Paolo Giosue would recommend this property

Liked: The staff was quite helpful and kind, maps and flyers were available. Location: not in the historic part, but very close to Westbahnhof and metro.

Disliked: Each 4-person room has only two keys, so others have to let you in somehow, as many reported. The room was not very clean (food rests around), but maybe just because the other room's guests were eating in it. Wifi connection: only at the lobby. Bathroom: old but usable. Safety lockers are small, suitcases won't fit, selected valuables will.
