The thing that you should improve is about the key policy of the room. There is only one key at the room and it was rather inconvenient if they share the room for three persons. It is better to have two or three keys for the same room (or you should change this system of the key to card key...

We came to this hostel after a very long trip from the train station. Took us way more time than they said it would take. Very hard to find.

Great place for the price, friendly staff, great location not too far from the center and close to the Tram and its clean. But the internet is totally useless even in the ground floor. There is a luggage room but without locks

Yeah, this hostel is okay. It was affordable, close to a metro station to get you into the city centre, and the rooms were spacious and it was nice to have an ensuite. If you have an iPhone, it'll take around 24 hours for your phone to connect to the wifi. No one seemed to know why this happens, but...

The major drawback were troubles with wi-fi, ranging from slow and unstable work to temporary unavailability (in public space; wi-fi is not accessible in the rooms). I stayed there for three nights, and this was not repaired, but rather grew worse. Room was generally fine for a hostel, with three beds and bath&toilet inside. There is no breakfast there, but...

Thank you for review. Unfortunately we do not have an air conditioning in our hostel and during your stay in Vienna the temperature was reaching 35 degree so we understand that even during the night it was quite hard to sleep well.
