This is one of the best hostels I've stayed at so far. The mellow vibes and beautiful layout provide the perfect reflection to Vienna. Although it seems a bit out of the way - not being in District 1 (the center) - this is actually nice since it's quieter and not filled with as many tourists. One of the city's... More

We (my husband, my daughter 2,5 years and I) travel a lot and we had a great time at the Hostel Ruthensteiner! We stayed at one of the sunny apartments with a nice terrace – really perfect for families. The beautiful and shady gardens are worth their weight in gold in hot summer days! The atmosphere is very friendly, relaxing... More

I had a little trouble finding the location since I came out the wrong exit. Actually printing out the directions and the map they provided would have avoided this problem. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The herb flavored water was great. Room did not have AC but not a problem with overhead fan. Ensuite bathroom excellent. A very... More

We stayed in Vienna for the first in early july and booked it mostly for the location and price. There was a great follow up from the get go, the travel instructions from the airport were clear, and we settled quickly once there. Over the 5 days we spent there, the staff was always very helpful and absolutely lovely. Within... More

Location initially seemed a little far out but actually very conveniently located to take the metro for ten mins into the centre. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. MATT on the bar was nice to chat to, especially as I was travelling alone! Reception staff were also excellent. Rooms were nice, good showers also and good secure lockers. As mentioned,... More

This one of the cleanest, and most comfortable hostels I've lived at. Very boutique-ish feel to the rooms and facilities. The best part about the hostel is the wonderful people that work here. On my first evening, I started talking to the bar-tender who was Portuguese and had hitch-hiked all over Europe for several years. His dream was to hitch-hike... More

The room was fine. The staff was really friendly, specially the barman, speaking of which, the drinks were very cheap. Breakfast could have been a bit more complete. It's located no that close to the city centre, but there's a nice walk to get there.

We stayed in a 6 bed female dorm, which conveniently was located across the street and meant that the noise was kept to a minimum. After arriving from a night train early in the morning the staff were ever so helpful, with somewhere very secure to leave our bags and free drinks! The dorm itself was open, light and had... More
