Hostel Ruthensteiner is my favorite hostel in Europe! The staff is wonderful - friendly and helpful. The place is clean, fun, and full of character. The location is great and close to all the things you want to see and do. At the end of a week, I wanted to just move in!

This place was a little slice of heaven when I needed it most. Steven willingly negotiated a single room for me at a discounted price. I was pretty sick at the time, and hadn't had a bedroom to myself in quite a while so this was a godsend. This guy even handed me a cup of tea and offered an... More

I think the staff is the nicest characteristic of the hostel. I booked the hostel because some friends recommend it to me, but there only two beds in different rooms. The staff were really nice and tried to manage to put me and my friend in the same room, but there were no availability. The place is clean, cozy and... More

The location is right near the metro. The rooms are big enough. The staff was friendly and welcoming. You can park right in front of the hostel.Overall it was a great stay.I would recommend it for a few days.

A real youth place and lively, without being very noisy. Very clean, the beds are comfortable, the breakfast is okay and the staff really helpful (map provided). It has, also, good public transport around. P.S I have been there last year.

Very nice, generous and warm staff, speaking various languages. They have a flexible approach. The place is fully equipped and clean. It was very helpful to be able to store my luggage and come back at the end of the day after checking out. It is a great place for a great value!

I really enjoyed my stay at Hostel Ruthensteiner this past weekend. The hostel was so comfortable--the bed was more comfortable than mine at home! Some other things I liked: there are reading lights for each bunk, it has been recently renovated with hardwood floors, the bathroom was very clean and the shower great, large lockers provided for free, free luggage...

We were four backpackers and we got a very small room with two bunkbeds, but that was enough for us. Nice sheets and bathroom. Very cool atmosphere with good music and prices in their own bar. Good kitchen and possibilities to wash your clothes. They also sell breakfast. The staff is very personal and friendly and they have great information... More

We couldn't have enjoyed this hostel more. Each of the staff is super friendly, warm and helpful. We were greeted with a cup of hot tea and given useful advice about what to do in Vienna. Our private room was so clean and had brand new wood floors. Shower strong, clean and hot. Highly recommended!
