From here you can either walk to many major sites or hop on the metro or tram just a minute or 2 away. We are located right between the 2 major areas that you will not want to miss - both World Heritage Sites - magnificent Palace Schoenbrunn and the enchanting Old Town. Perfect! Friends & family-run & "one of a kind, not one of a chain!", ours is the ideal hostel for the individual traveler or small friend & family groups. We look forward to welcoming you!!!
