This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very friendly staff, when they realized that we were travelling as a family and were staying for a few nights they offerd us a appartment with roof garden . It is hard to find with a car as Vienna's streets are mostly one way , it's very hard to get there especially as google map has all the one way arrows in the opposite direction as they really are.

The facilities are spacious , very tastefully decorated and clean. There are a lot of instruments you can use if you so desire.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very friendly, helpful, knowledgable, professional staff, very good customer service. Comfortable, clean rooms, a computer is available with tourist information for Vienna but the internet is charged at 2 euros for 45mins. There is a downstairs toilet and shower room which is useful if you check out early and free lockers are available. These are very nice and thoughtful touches! The hotel is in quite a good location about 4 minutes from the Westbahnhof train and metro station, and 2 mins from a tram stop, tickets are 1 euro 80 for 1 hour, a day ticket is under 5 euros for 1 day. The transport system is integrated. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the centre and 20 minutes walk from schloss schonbrunn. It's only 2 minutes from three small supermarkets. It's a reasonable price for Vienna (which is an expensive city.)

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Nice place with very good atmosphere (insofar as I saw; stayed here with friends, which always makes one pay less attention to the hostel itself). Close to the westbahnhof, which is a useful location, if a bit far from the real center of town. Free WiFi was yay!
My only gripe with the place was that it was rather noisy; sounds echoed down the hallway and the door to my room didn't stop any of it; you could hear every word spoken by groups of people coming up to their rooms late at night, as well as the vacuuming (?) outside the rooms around 7 AM.

Still, I'd probably stay here again.
