Liked: Brilliant hostel, great facilities and staff, definitely recommend.

Disliked: The hostel was clean, but the other guests (girls) had hair all over the bathroom and sink, the only reason I marked this place down for cleanliness, the dorm and beds were immaculate.

Liked: One of the best hostels in the world. So thankful they were so flexible as to let me check in at 6:30am after a 7 hour bus ride. (viva low season!) The whole place was super clean, all the staff I met were really friendly and helpful. Great common room with a little bar to meet other travelers.

Liked: The hostel was very clean and homey with a very helpful staff. I arrived well before check in and they allowed me to leave my stuff in a locker, gave me tips on where to go, and checked my in 2 hours early when I came back. Also, an additional friend decided to travel with us after we'd booked and so had booked a different room but when we got there the staff immediately changed our reservation to a 6 person private (an upgrade for us) so we could all be together for no extra charge.

Liked: Such an amazing hostel! Building/room/facilities: Very sweet - lovely little garden you can go in until 10pm. The room was perfect (double private room - shared bathroom) with a sink and mirror, and plenty of wardrobe space (with a small locker built in), and it was so clean! The toilet and shower were just outside our room, very convenient, and were kept very clean. The wifi was free, though there were a few computers should you not have a laptop on you (I never saw a queue to use them). There was a VERY helpful map at the reception which we used constantly and lots of suggestions for things to do. Location: Perfect location! When staying here the "U3" (U-Bahn) will become your friend - a direct service to the centre of Vienna (and many other places). The walk to the U-Bahn is 10 minutes and very simple. If you're flying, the airport bus will take you to that stop from the airport and back (for 8euro single, 13 euro return). The tickets for the -Bahn are very simple to buy (the machine translates to English) and cheap - a 72 hour ticket for UNLIMITED travel was a mere 15euro. Also, the hostel is a very short U-Bahn away from Schönbrunn Palace with a zoo in its gardens which is a must-see and not very expensive.

Disliked: We have no complaints about this hostel!

Liked: everything :) so cosy and inviting space, very nice, helpful and international staff, good location (near to Wien Westbahnhof, and, for me personally, near to the places I wanted to visit :-)) ... and, besides - hot chocolate! I loved it :)

Disliked: I felt somehow cold in my room, even when the heating system was on... but I guess it could be just because of my persisting sleep deprivation
