Hostel Brigittenau is a pretty big hostel. It is also pretty clean and the rooms are nice. Emmanuelle and I had a double room-bunk beds, a table, two closets, a sink and mirror. The bathrooms and showers were down the hall.
It was a pretty busy place, with all kinds of people in and out of there, but they all seemed to keep to themselves and there wasn't any kind of meeting place or hang out that we could find.
Unique Quality: Breakfast was pretty good, with rolls, cheese, cold cuts, butter, jam, and coffee, tea and hot cocoa included in the price. There were also other things like yogurt and orange juice that you had to play extra for. They also served lunch and dinner for a price.
There isn't a whole lot going on at Friedrich Engels Platz, but there is a mall next to the Subway Station. It's pretty big and new, with a movie theater, H&M, a grocery store, fast food and a couple sit-down restaurants.
Directions: From Westbahnhof: Subway U6 Floridsdorf. Get off at Handelskai. Take Autobus 11A Richtung Heiligenstadt to Friedrich Engels Platz. Cross the street, go down the stairs, then upstairs to the left, hostel will be right in front of you.
