We stayed for 2 nights in a family room of 4. Good price for a clean and basic room. Nice breakfast, not included in room price. Free wifi. Like a youth hostel. 2 minutes walk from keplerplatz metro station. Friendly staff.

Stayed at this place in March 2014 for the 2nd time (while writing the review is staying here again :)). For 58 euro - you get a clean room, friendly service, free wifi and a hotel that is close to the center by metro. When travelling on budget - that's the place to be!

We didn't have very high expectations for the price, but we were pleasantly surprised. Extremely clean and spacious room and bathroom, with everything functioning well. Very friendly and helpful stuff at the reception. The breakfast was great too. Nice neighborhood, easily accessible by public transport. Highly recommended!

Hostel is located in a Turkish area of Vienna (from what I could establish!) just outside the centre and very conveniently located for the train/bus station. Though not a particularly interesting walk, it only took 20 minutes (or a short journey on the metro at 2.40 euro single) to get to the opera house and main shopping district. As the... More

The room is spacious, washroom is clean, and the best thing is it got a kitchen in the lobby, so that you can prepare your own food! Where to buy food? Don't worry, there is a supermarket in a 2-3 minute walk! But since there are 2 MEININGER Hotels in Vienna, at first, I went to the wrong one!! :(... More

It has a very good location but a very bad service. When you come there you have to fill up this form and this is quite annoying specialy when we were a group of people. So after long travelling you lose another hour on the reception just to get the room. Not good at all, and then a fat lie... More

If you're traveling as a family group, this hotel is fine. As a hostel, it has some things going for it - it's immaculately clean and the beds were comfy. But if you're looking for a sociable hostel this isn't the place. The location is decent - right near the metro line and close to bakeries.
