Liked: The hostel was very well located, just 20/25 min walk from the city center, and near a subway station. We stayed in a apartment for 4 people, which had a lot of privacy, and had a lot of space. Its good for families or groups of friends.

Disliked: It's an old hostel, so the decoration is not very appealing. Also, the staff was not always at the reception and we had to wait for them to come back, more than once.

Liked: Great location, fairly clean, good value, particularly if other guests don't book apartments in the suite you have a whole apartment to yourself.

Disliked: Not really a hostel, actually a basic hotel. Common kitchen was directly off rooms, which could lead to problems if you get inconsiderate suitemates.

Liked: The location is awesome - approximately a 3-4 minute walk to Westbahnof train station and metro. Next to a great street with restaurants and shops.

Liked: There are many facilities in the room, soundproof, it is in the heart of the city, yet in a quiet surrounding. I loved the fact that there was a kitchen belonging to our room (it was actually a flat what we rented) for a very good price. The atmosphere is lovely, the output is tasteful.

Disliked: Nothing in particular.

Liked: Separate kitchen, hall for each 2 rooms.

Disliked: Neighboors seemed like living there for some monthes. Not the friendliest atmosphere. Not the cleaniest place in Vienna. And definitely not for solo travellers - good if you book whole room. The worst hostel I've been to. Just little better than sleeping on train station. Wouldn't recomend to any other travellers.
