Hello !

Been browsing the net for affordable accommodations in Vienna for 3 pax preferably with ensuite. There are a few properties listed such as hotels & apartments and some hostels/pension listed are surprisingly more expensive than a hotel stay in Vienna.

I realised (after many days of browsing and searching the net) that Vienna have a very well connected subways systems hence staying on the outskirts of the city would still be ok.

Only problem is that when it comes to selecting between Hostels & hotels (since they're almost comparable between some properties), I have difficulties deciding which to reserve.

I know this is quite silly but is there any 'catch'? I would think if prices are almost comparable, then won't it be better to stick to staying in a hotel ?
