We stayed two nights at the Hostel Ruthensteiner, in a private double room with bath. The room was tiny, but very clean with towels, soap, and bedding provided. We were across the street in the smaller annex building with only a few suites -- the private garden was a nice place to rest and enjoy happy hour after a full... More

This was exactly the sort of Hostel I had been looking for my entire trip in Europe and was actually a lot better than some of the supposed 3 and 4 star hotels I stayed at. Rooms are simple, modern, clean and quiet. I believe my room was right over the bar but I had an excellent night's sleep and... More

Dear James! Thank you very much for staying with us and rating us like this. Hostelling turns to a "industry" more and more, swallowed by big chain operations especially in major cities in middle europe and as a family & friends kind of operating business next to construktive criticism we really enjoy the heartwarming "everything is awesome" kind of review...

My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the apartments here which was fantastic! It was really spacious with a well equiped kitchen and a lovely balcony. It was really clean and cosy, and all the bedrooms and dorms looked just as nice. It had two beautiful garden areas as well as comfy indoor seating, a comunal kitchen and a... More

Stayed here for 6 nights in early September with my husband so we could have plenty of time to see Vienna’s sights as well as exploring some of the neighboring towns. We arrived before the check in time but Astrid, a wonderfully kind woman at Reception, said our room on the 4th floor (no elevator!) was ready for us. My... More

This is a really great place to base yourself in Vienna for location and to meet fellow travellers. It is a few minutes walk from the Westbahnhof station for trams, the metro and trains. The staff are extremely friendly, upon my arrival they produced a map, circled all the places of interest, gave me tips on where to go and... More

This review won't be much different from others - great location (near the Westbahnhof, U-Bahn, tram stop, city centre, supermarkets), very lively atmosphere, cheap drinks in the bar in the evenings, well-equipped kitchen, free Wi-Fi, computer room, lockers... Very friendly receptionists, they are always ready to advise you on what to see, where to go. We stayed in a 3-bed... More

Like other reviewers I am not exception, loved it there. Great Location, amazing atmosphere, and really exceptional employees. Location is just minutes from Westbahnhof, where you can catch all trains + Vienna metro. 20-30 min. nice walk to the center. Atmosphere is why I Will come back to this place again. Several rooms to hang out, 2 gardens, big kitchen,... More

Just left the Hostel RUTHENSTEINER after 3 nights accommodation while visiting Vienna. Terrific location near the Westbanhof train/transit Station. Easy walking distance to the Hostel from this transit hub. I asked at Wein MEIDLING Vienna transit ticket booth where the Hostel was located as this was the train station where my train from Prague arrived in Austria. I was pleasantly... More

The ruthensteiner is a great hostel! It's just outside the centre of Vienna but very close to the metro station so you can use it as a base to see everything. It has a lot of character in itself, great for travellers. Good vibes, nice rooms, clean bathrooms, atmospheric bar area and music. Also breakfast opportunities and lots of tips... More
