Meininger at Columbusgasse is very convenient for city travelers, stone's throw away from the underground railway, even walking distance from the Hauptbahnhof and in the middle of the market place, where one can shop for almost everything, have a variety of food and entertainment. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are moderately sized and neat. The hotel provides... More

It is a very nice place and I recommand it to everyone. The dorms were very clean and the staff were professional. It is not expensive and next to a train station. The only thing is the cleaning lady. She just entered in the room without knocking and clean at 8:15 in the morning. I think she could have waited... More

You'd be hard pressed to even really call this a hostel, much closer to a hotel. Close to Metro so easy to get around Vienna. Good service, good clean rooms, good facilities, good price. Good value for money, definitely recommended. Stay here.

I liked this hostel. It was quiet and clean. Breakfast is extra but wifi is free an works in all the rooms. However, you have to log in with the password you get form the front desk every time you log on and sometimes you get kicked while online. Makes for very difficult Skype sessions. Its right next to the... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were superb and were very good in regards to advice on Vienna, getting around etc. I don't normally do reviews but I felt inclined to with this hotel. Very pleased, comfy bed, good wifi, good power shower. Will definitely stay here again if I stay in Vienna.

There's nothing bad that can be mentioned of this hotel. The staff are friendly, helpful and informative. The rooms are good and safety lockers obtainable for a deposit of 5 euros. Lots of space in the common room where you are able to sit, drink and play pool (1 euro per game). Location: it's quite close to a high street... More

Very well located, its a hostel that looks like a hotel. Very clean and confortable, and was nice to sleep in a bed that wasn't a bunk bed.

Hotel is exactly as advertised. Basic, clean, cheap and convenient. We saw a mix of families and student-age travelers at this location. Not a party crowd. Everyone seemed very respectful, stayed quiet, and minded their own business. Front desk was pleasant and efficient. Our room was spacious, and comparatively clean. New towels came when requested. Fantastic location literally around corner... More

Ideal for travellers and groups, the hostel was located just a minute walk from the underground station, and surrounded by supermarkets and cafés. Staff is really friendly: Agnes was without a doubt our favourite receptionist, so don't hesitate to go talk to her - she is always smiley and speaks perfect English! Only downer though: the lack of lockers in... More

Very nice hotel located in the centre of a busy District of Vienna. The area has loads of shops etc right outside the hotel. However, it is not the main 'touristy' part of Vienna. To walk to the main centre it takes around 20 minutes. Overall we were happy with our stay in Vienna. The only downside is the lack... More
