Leider war die Tür der Dusche kaputt sodass keine Mutzung möglich war So etwas sollte beim Putzen auffallen Und dann kann man die Gäste drauf hinweisen oder anderes Zimmer geben Waren schon in vielen Jigendherbergen Die in Östereich waren leider alle die schlechtesten

Lieber Gast, vielen Dank für eure Rückmeldung. Leider passieren auch bei uns manchmal Fehler für die wir uns gerne bei euch entschuldigen möchten. Allerdings wäre es ganz einfach gewesen, das Zimmer zu wechseln, wenn ihr uns gleich bei der Ankunft über die defekte Dusche informiert hättet. Dann wäre sowohl euch, mit einer funktionierenden Dusche als auch uns, mit der Info dass die Dusche einen defekt aufweist, geholfen gewesen. Aber es ist wahrscheinlich heutzutage so, dass man negative Erfahrungen unbedingt im Internet teilen muss bevor man sie vor Ort deponiert und so der anderen Seite die Gelegenheit gibt, etwaige Mängel zu beheben. Eure Kritik über "die Jugendherbergen" in Österreich nehmen wir zur Kenntnis, teilen allerdings eure Ansicht nicht ganz. Mit besten Grüssen aus Wien JH Brigittenau

I stayed room no.104. Air circulation is not good, so in the daytime I cannot stay in the room, too hot.

The current system for using the wifi is cumbersome, and oftentimes it was just impossible to log in because the login page did not respond.
