Welcome to our hostel

Located only 20 minutes from the city centre, Vienna Brigittenau is a modern hostel which backs on to the Donauinsel - an island in the Danube which offers a variety of leisure activities and hosts Donauinselfest, one of Europe's largest open air festivals. The ‘Millennium City’, with its numerous shops and leisure facilities, is just a stone’s throw away.

The hostel offers dorm rooms with 2-6 beds, most en-suite, free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, a large garden, a lounge with cable TV and other entertainment equipment, Internet terminals and an underground garage with 25 parking spaces. Daily meals are also served, offering a selection of good home cooking and vegetarian dishes.

Hostel Brigittenau is ideally located for visiting the sights of Vienna, whether it’s the historic centre with its beautiful architecture, Baroque castles and gardens or The Kunsthistorisches Museum of Fine Arts.

The bed was very uncomfortable. The sign "just for toast" in the semf service area is not explicit to forbid using other kinds of bread

Beim Frühstück gab es so eine lange Schlange, dass wir darauf verzichtet haben. Ein Klodeckel wäre nett gewesen. Nachdem der Ablauf in der Dusche verstopft war, wurde er zwar sofort repariert, aber ohne den Dreck davon wegzumachen. Der Duschkopf ist auf Kinderhöhe, da tut man sich beim Haare waschen etwas schwer.

The hostel is too big to meet a lot of people there outside of your room so if you have good room mates it's fine else it's not that good and it could be improved by some activities. except from that the hostel was clean the staff was friendly

The breakfast is really good. That is the only good thing about this hostel. The receptionist is very rude and the location of the hostel is really far from the city Centre. On first day we planned to walk till the city Centre and we ended up getting extremely tired, as one has to obviously walk a lot around city Centre itself. I will never stay in this hostel ever again.

Dear Guest, thank you for comment. We are sorry that you found the receptionist "rude", the hostel itself is exactly where shown on google maps and as described, it takes 20 minutes by public transport to the city center (Schwedenplatz). Best regards from Vienna HI Brigittenau.
