Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Do Step Inn hostel is a budget hostel with great transport links, good Wi-Fi, and friendly staff. It is nice and clean and recommended for students or low-budget travelers, but as it’s not a very social hostel, it’s less appealing to those who like to meet new people.

The Location

Do Step Inn hostel is located in the Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus district, on a street with a moderate amount of traffic (quite busy during the day, but quiet at night). The neighbourhood in which the hostel is located is nothing special and it mostly consists of residential buildings. There is a park and some fast food restaurants. However, Do Step Inn is only a five-minute walk away from one of the two railway stations in Vienna -- Westbahnhof, which is filled with shops, bakeries, and fast food services. It also has an underground station (U3 and U6) and a S-Bahn station (S50), so getting around Vienna is really easy.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms are big and spacious, but some of the beds are very close together so one’s personal space may be limited. In the room, apart from the beds, there is a table, some chairs, a mirror, and lockers. The lockers are on the bigger side and can be locked using a padlock, but you have to bring your own. The bed lights are only on the bottom bunk beds; there are none on the top. There are quite a few electrical sockets in the room, but none of them are near the beds. The beds themselves are clean and comfortable. Bed sheets are provided but you have to make your own bed, so that’s worth keeping in mind, especially if you’re arriving late at night. Towels are provided as well.

The bathroom -- with a toilet, sink, and shower -- is modern, clean, and fairly big. It’s part of the dorm room and is accessible through a door in the room. The bathroom is supplied with toilet paper and hand wash. The only downside is the nonexistent sound-proofing. Everything can be heard from the bathroom, hallway, and surrounding rooms, so if you’re a light sleeper, you’re likely to be woken up at night.

Common Spaces

Common spaces with a pool table and table football are scattered between two buildings. They’re usually not very crowded, so meeting people is a challenge. They serve breakfast (for an additional fee) and there’s a hostel kitchen, where you can cook yourself a meal. They offer luggage storage for free. There is no nice outdoor space, which can be a downside, especially for smokers.

Summary

Do Step Inn is a large hostel that is corporate in feel, and a little impersonal, but it does the job. It’s on the cheaper side and nothing special, but it’s a nice and clean space in which to sleep, shower, and leave your things. It also has great Wi-Fi (in common areas, as well as in dorm rooms), which is rare in budget hostels. Because of its location, it’s a great base for exploring the city.

Good location and clean room
Near the westbanhof. Clean room and bed. But no breakfast. By the way, wash clothes need 12 euros for 3kgs. As a whole, still good in my mind.

DO NOT STEP IN
DO NOT STEP IN. The Beds are old and made a lot of noise so I could not sleep well.

Not bad
The hostel is right next to westbahnof but about 30 minutes walk to the city center. The wifi only worked in the lobby area downstairs and was a bit spotty. Beds were ok. Staff was nice. If you want to use the kitchen its in a separate building around the corner from the main building. It's affordable and for good reason. Honestly had I paid more to stay here I would have been dissatisfied with it. But the price is certainly right.

Really nice
This hostel was very clean and comfortable, everybody was cool and the location was very nice. You get a glass of wine upon checking in. We didn't need to walk too much to go to the train station, to go to restaurants or to go to museums and other places. The attendants always helped indicating restaurants and places we should visit. I had no problems there and I really recommend this hostel.

GOOD
The price and staff were great. internet works just near the reception and if you have to print something there is 50 cent euro each paper.

  We left after two nights because we couldn't handle this place anymore. The facilities were filthy and always occupied and the location was an absolute hassle (though it's near the train station, it's a half hour walk to anything else). The neighborhood wasn't the greatest. It was okay, but not in comparison to everywhere else we stayed.
