Big place
The staff is friendly, the place is huge and near the city center. There is a bar in the hostel to meet other travelers and a late night kebap place across the street for your drunchie needs. This place is nice and big and has a kitchen, with a penny market right next door. Only downside was no air conditioning, and it was hot. Good for the backpacker or the party traveler.

GREAT PLACE
THE HOSTEL IS GREAT. Nice bar, nice breakfast for small price, but internet works just in the reception.

Alright but didn't see what's so great about it
Ok -- I may have become a bit biased because of the specific time of my visit -- early/mid-October. I heard that schools over there have a fall vacation, and I guess bunch of high schools from different European countries decided to take advantage of the school break to send their kids to Vienna. Bunch of teenagers running around in addition to the general clinical atmosphere of this large place made feel like I was at an HI hostel. The Lounge does have a great location and really is pretty darn clean, but it got uncomfortable and annoying at times when a huge group of loud kids took over the kitchen and dining and lobby areas and acted like they owned the place.

Clean, modern, friendly, cheap!
The location is ok, five minutes' walk from the main station, and opposite a great ice cream place! i was robbed while staying here by someone staying in my room, they took my camera (and all my pictures) my phone, and some money. was my fault, i left them in my jeans pocket under the bed and he took them whilst i was sleeping. so use the lockers for everything! The computers are cheap with fast internet. but the staff were great! they gave me all of the details of who i think it was, which i gave to the police, who refused to do anything and wouldn't let me use their phone either. staff tried to track the guy down though. they also have a locked room with a camera for keeping your bag whilst you're out and about. next time i'm in vienna i'll be staying here again!

Clinical, but nice
This was a good hostel (free drink in the wombar, clean rooms, with a bathroom to each room). Its only problem was that it was very clinical, and so didn't have the same welcoming feel that the smaller hostels have. Although we enjoyed our stay there, it wasn't really anything special, unlike some of our other hostels. Still, would recommend it very highly.

Great
Really nice clean hostel. Staff were really friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and a good size. Location is great for people coming to Vienna by train from the west, and it is right near a major subway and tram station, so a trip to the city center took ten minutes.

  It is a clean hostel there is no lockout but they only tell you to stay out of the way if people are cleaning -which I liked. They have tons of big TVs but only CNN International in English. The bar is big but nice and a good place to party or relax (depending on the crowd). The people who work there are friendly and helpful. It isn't in the center of town, but the walk into the center is nice.

  A great place to stay in Vienna. Great location, clean, safe, and cannot beat the price. We would do it again. Fun, friendly people around. You should give it a chance when you come to vienna.
