“very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

The welcome was really friendly even though we arrived quite late. When we got into our room we were surprised to find a spacious family room with separate shower and toilet facilities. As our room was facing the back and the hotel is off the main roads anyway it was very quiet.
We were also allowed to leave the car in the garage on the day of our departure because there was plenty of space on that day. Also, the tube was just a short walk away and in no time we were in the city centre.
Highly recommended!

We stay here for 4 nights with 2 children. The room was good, the hotel very close to metro station and in 5 min you arrive the center, The staff is very friendly.
But it was very noisy. You have not air conditioner in the room and with opened window we had all the noise of the street in the room. In addition in the hostel were stay group of students. You can hear every word spoken outside the door.

I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2013.

The location is good as it is close to the metro line and Vienna metro is very easy to navigate around.

The hostel has a living area by reception and a number of sofas to relax on. There is also a games room and computers. Reception also sells drinks and snacks.

The rooms were fantastic. I was expecting a hostel but It is more like a hotel. The rooms were cleaned every day and towels were changed if desired. I stayed in a room for 5 there were three single beds two of which could be pushed together to make a double bed if desired and a bunk bed. The beds were very comfy.

The wi-fi was excellent and could access it from the rooms.

The toilet and shower were in the room. The shower was very good with enough room to hang up dry clothes and get changed in the shower.

Definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in and the staff were very friendly.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and loved it! We were expecting a hostel, but to us this felt like a hotel - this is a good point! The room was absolutely massive, spotless and very modern. You could not want a nicer room than what we had! The staff were great, and there was a small bar area at reception. You can buy drinks and snacks to take to your room at reception too. We were at first worried about the location, as it was not on the map we had, and we thought it would be miles from anything. We did not need to worry though - the location is very good, right next to a metro, and you can be at the main sights in 5 mins. This place was fantastic, we wil recommend it to anyone who is coming to Vienna, and we will always look out for other Meininger hotels/hostels in other cities.

I just stayed for a night but the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean. Especially the bath rooms. A plus is that toilet and shower are separated. The location is also very good. just 15 minutes by underground from the city center. The price is also almost unbeatable if booking at least 2 weeks in advance.

I only stayed here for one quick night (needed a cheaper place at the end of a business/personal trip since I actually had to foot the bill that night). The room was far more spacious than my expensive hotel's had been. Bed was comfortable, hostel and street below were quiet all night. The 24-hour reception is very helpful. The U-bahn is really just outside of the door, and you're three stops away from the city center. It was perhaps more casual than a hotel, but was clean, functional, and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Wi-Fi worked great in my room on my Mac.

The location is OK. It's a budget hotel very closer to center, shopping area.
In room we had enough space (four beds room), but it could be more cleaner. Wi-fi available everywhere.
I don't recommand the breakfast.

Room Tip: Preferably, for 10 euros more, with parking place reservation.
