|A bit far from the center but public transport close by. Stiff mattresses but impeccable spacious room. A baby crib was even supplied! |

|breakfast is really good,but there is no free wifi and it doesn't really work in the room.|
|12 Apr 2013 Vasileios, England & Wales||97%|
|My only comment is that although I stayed two nights, I got just one stamp on the Hostelling International card. I don't know if that is one stamp per stay or one stamp per night.
It was all great. I would really like to be part of the Hostelling International group by operating some hostels in my own country (Greece). |

Our double room was a bunk bed
We could not get wi-fi in our room (we could get in the reception area)
I also had not realised there was no kitchen for guests to use

|03 Jan 2013 Andree, Canada||97%|
|Very clean, very organized... Good breakfast with great variety of food. Nice rooms, well ventilated with a lot of private space to put your stuff. Only drawback is having to take public transport to go downtown, but it is a short ride. Definitely recommend!
|02 Jan 2013 Marta, Italy||90%|
|I stayed there during New Year's days (2012/2013), and I and my friends really liked the hostel, except for the fact that some of us found some spots on the shits...but I think that if we'd asked the staff to replace them, there'd be no problem.
The rooms are small but well organised (there's a sink in every room, even if the bathroom is in common for the guests).
The location is also very good: 1km to the nearest metro station (you can reach it in a 10 minutes walk), but there's also a bus stop right in front of the hostel and a tram stop more or less 300mt away.
I'm sure that if I'll ever come back to Vienna I'd love to stay again in this hostel!!|
