The hostel is close to the train station, which is very easy (and inexpensive) to use! The staff was quite friendly and they offered maps and lots of "how to get to _____ (location)" information slips, which we used the entire time! The room was small but clean and perfect for our one-night stay. There was a garden, computers, great wifi, a bar, and inexpensive coffee (and breakfast) in the morning!

We stayed for 3 nights and loved it here. Steve on the front desk was lovely and all members of staff helped with all information needed. Wifi was good and good social areas. Would definitely stay again.

Great staff with plenty of advice for things to do. Wonderful common facilities including a bar and a garden. Easily the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. Location is not necessarily the best, but you are so close the U-Bahn that it really doesn't matter. You can get anywhere in the city in a timely manner.

Everything was really good! The bedroom and the bathroom were very clean and the staff was always kind and ready to help. The ambient inside is very good, and you can meet people from all around the world while drinking a good beer.

It's all right. Kitchen is quite small for a hostel. Also the breakfast is quite disappointing for the money.

An outstanding hostel! Rooms are massively big. The atmosphere is perfect with the bar and all the musical spirit. The location is really good, near to the metro station, super easy to reach and close to the center and the palace. The staff is amazing and it seems that Victor speaks every single language. The hostel has an incredible low price for all what you get.

THANK YOU for this splendid review!!! You named some of the things that I really love about our hostel; the 'musical spirit' - it's amazing what great things happen when you leave a few instruments lying around - and of course our super-friendly and international (if not quite pan-lingual) staff! Come back and visit us sometime - it is after all our awesome guests who make our atmosphere what it is! Until then, happy travelling!!!

Very nice hostel 5 min from Westbahnhof, therefore very easy to reach and a perfect starting point to explore the city and its sights. The garden and common aeres are very beautiful and welcomig. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back!

Very welcoming and helpful staff and the common spaces were nice as well! A bit of a walk (45 min) from the historic centre but not difficult direction wise, and you can also take the metro easily. The front desk did a great job of answering any questions and giving recommendations for things to do. Aside from a bit of a squeaky bunk bed everything was great. I would definitely stay again!

Hey there, thanks for this great review! About that walk - a 20 minute stroll from our doorstep down the Mariahilferstrasse (Vienna's most popular shopping avenue, newly transformed into a gorgeous car-free urban paradise- a tourist attraction in and of itself, really!), and you'll find yourself in the historic first district. In 45 minutes, you can easily walk to St. Stefan's Cathedral, the literal heart of Vienna! And of course you can get all over the city by metro. Thanks&do come back soon!

The staff was very pleasant from the beginning. City info is readily available. WiFI is good. You can hangout and drink in the hostel (prices are ok). There's also a garden area in which you can hangout. The only thing that I didn't like was the height of the lower bunk bed (hit my head while getting up). That's also one of the "less deluxe" rooms.

Eek, sorry about the bumped head! We realize that some of our bunks are a bit on the low side - we're trading up for more spacious bunks as budget permits. Thanks for the feedback, not to mention the great review - we'll hope to see you around here again sometime!

One of the better hostels I've stayed in. Great atmosphere with the bar, easy to meet and socialize. Not a bad location, you really need to train it in to the Centre. The most friendly abs knowledgeable staff I've ever met, thanks! Wifi was fine, beds comfy, power points at the beds and a good breaky. Locker was okay, just couldn't fit everything, but overall very secure area. Would stay there again.

Hey, thank YOU for the review - we'll look forward to your next visit! Just a quick word about our LOCATION - we're actually just a few minutes walk from the lovely Mariahilferstrasse, Vienna's most popular shopping avenue, newly transformed into a gorgeous mixed-use urban space stretching from the Westbahnhof to the historic center - it's possible you missed this if you jumped right on the subway. Check it out next time, it makes for a very pleasant stroll! Until then, happy travelling!

Love the place & keep returning to it whenever I am in Vienna. Spacious rooms with free lockers, spotlessly clean, sufficient number of showers, a well-equipped guest kitchen and a green inner yard where to sip your morning coffee. I know it may sound like an advertisement, though I have see very few places like Ruthensteiner.
