Blue Corridor---a quite special hostel!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 1, 2007

First, it has a perfect location, 10min walk from Museum Quarter, 15 min from Hofburg, Albertina Platz and so on...
Second, the outside of this hostel is a bar, which opens until 1:30am, so that you can have your night life here without traveling back to the hostel after partying late...
Third, there're a lot of rule in this hostel, which sounds a little annoying at first, but really interesting: for example: on the door of the bathroom, it writes: The water and electricity is over-prized in Vienna, so please don't hand-wash your clothes here!13euro will be added to your bill if you do your laundry here.blablabla... On the door of the bedroom, it's written: No music without earphone in the hostel! We reserve the right to cancel your booking if you make noise here... On the way out of the room section, it is written: please leave your key here when you check out before 9am, or we may charge you another day....and etc...
Fourth, the staff. A woman who has an Asian face but dyed-blond hair is at the reception. She'll explain every rule to you, including how to use the key to the back door which leads to the room, and strictly require you to practise using it until she makes sure you can do it without difficulty...
Fifth, advices on the wall: there're a full wall of advices including how to get to the airport, where to do your laundry, the cheap supermarket nearby, where you can find restaurants and internet cafes... So, before you want to ask the staff something, make sure it's not on the wall...or you may see a "why-can't-you-read-it-by-yourself" expression...
But I won't say that the staff are unfriendly in this way...oppositely, I feel it's quite interesting and lovely!
A recommended hostel, in short!

We took a double room, but I've heard dorms in this hostel are just as great, although dorm rooms are behind the hostel's bar which made people feel a bit unsafe. However, that was the only complaint, and if you get a single or double room you'll be staying in a different building around the corner.
You can get towels for 1 euro, it's warm and in a great location, near restaurants, pubs, sightseeing, metro,... It's clean and well taken care of.
We paid around 24 euro for a double room.

Unique Quality: The hostel's bar might be a good place to start your evening, you can get free tea, coffee and punch. Coctails will cost you 3.80 if you are staying there, and they are excellent!
You can use free interntet as well, but please note that reception is only opened between 9am-1 pm, and 7pm-1 am.
The lady that owns it a bit weird, she speaks so quietly that I couldn't hear the word she said, and her gothic clothes might come as a schock at first after seeing her as a plain middle aged lady an hour ago. Could hardly recognize her, but overall, she's allright.
