The entrance is at street level, and the platforms are at that same level.  But the concourse is one level down at basement level as you can see here, there are escalators down from entrance level to concourse.  Two passageways run from the concourse under all the tracks, with stairs and escalators and/or lift up to each platform.  The ticket office and ÖBB Lounge are below and to the left in this photo.
