Beautiful hostel! The place is just amazing, the team is easy-going and chill. Despite the current situation and restrictions, they're trying to keep the usual good vibe and ambience* I'd totally recommend it! :) Activities and routine is being adapted to the 2020-situation, write to me for any other details

Great experience, I would recommend FLor to any host - you are lucky if you can host her so go for it ;) I think we had a very easy going, smooth relationship. I am very happy, that Flor came to help us & ended u staying for 6 weeks - she was always helpful, eager to learn and to take responsibility. With her help I was actually able to leave the house for a longer time - because she was handling with our other volunteers everything so well! A big THANK YOU<3 and hope you will come back ))

I was there 7 weeks, and the time just passed really fast! All the house and its decoration is the most gorgeous, cozy and warm ever... with chill and relaxed vibes. Its not the typical hostel, there you will surely have the opportunity to meet and socialize with the (max. 12) guests, and go to for tour around Vienna... Thanks team PR. xD

Travel Experience

Between working and volunteering in different countries/projects, I'm mostly a nomad.
I've travelled solo, and only a few times with a friend, long trips by bus, carpooling, and hitchhiking!
*next travelling goal > hitchhiking a boat ^^
*Last "new country" I've visited: Slovakia
There are still too many places in my wishing list but with time I want to travel all around the world. And I love to chat or give advice to others too!

(this year is not making anything less than a continuous challenge) Stay safe, but stay free!
