The Meininger Hotel is a small place in one of the quieter areas of Vienna, with direct access to the metro of the city, the next station being about 100m from the hostel. Although it is not located in the centre of the city, the hotel has a very practical position, as there are many restaurants and cafés in the... More

We were really impressed with this hostel - it actually felt more like a hotel, just where you happen to share your room with other travellers. It's on a very quiet street which is not far from town (and very close to the Metro) - it's not very near any of the main train stations if you are arriving by... More

It's advertised as a hostel but it is much more like a low budget hotel, with some rooms private and others dorms. There were many school groups staying there which was definitely not ideal for backpackers. It is not very close to the city centre and there are virtually no restaurants nearby so be prepared to walk a lot or... More

I stayed in this hostel at the end of three weeks tripping around Europe and I was delighted with the facilities. It was great value for money. I was in a six bed dorm, the room was large and could easily fit us all; the beds were modern and had a light, a shelf and a plug to charge your... More

We were very surprised when we turned up as we were expecting a hostel considering the cheap price. However, it is more like a hotel with a great mix of guests. Usually you find backpackers from all over the world but here there were families and large groups of school children too. It is very large with a number of... More

This place is huge and modern. It was a strange experience being in a smart hotel but our room being a 6-bed dorm. the upper bunks were like coffins and you are very much trapped in the room, or so it felt like. You couldn't keep the door open, the key card was connected to the electricity, if you didn't... More

Quiet, clean and easy walk (15min) to centre. Good value bike hire as well. Free CityBike station nearby, Didn't eat there.so can't comment on breakfast. Rooms small but perfectly ok for me, why do you need a huge room anyway?
