I had an excellent time all round! The staff are knowledgeable and very friendly, the rooms are affordable and very well kept, and the hostel itself is in a fantastic location. I'll definitely be staying here when I come to Vienna in the future :]

a marvelous and organised team of charming helpful young people. I enjoyed the little garden, the general ambiance, and happy hour round an oval bar seated on stools - chats about travels in Cuba or a story about witnessing levitation. Piano and guitars avaiable, i enjoyed the flow of easy listening songs. Slightly off the beaten track in a quiet road...

The staff here were so helpful and lovely. It was a home away from home.

The hostel was very nice, the double private room was a bit small but the price was nice. The kitchen and garden are nice and the hostel atmosphere encourages making friends and socializing. The bar is nice as well.

Great hostel, awesome staff, good location. Don't rent a bike from the hostel- the city bikes that you are connected to the machines only cost 1 euro per hour!!!!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there, thanks for this great review! About the city bikes - they are in fact FREE - but only for the first hour. If you don't return them within 60 minutes, the charges start, with the price increasing with each passing hour. Plus, our bikes are great quality, come with locks helmets etc., and don't require you to hunt around for a citybike station in order to park them...So really both are good options, it just depends on what your plans are :).

I was impressed by the fact that we've been offered a double room with no additional charge, even if we had a reservation of two beds in a mixed dormitory. The breakfast of cereals, yogurt, fruit salad and coffee (with possibility for recharge), for just 2.9 eur, was delicious. :)

Ah yes, you got 'upgraded' - that certainly is known to happen around here :). THANK YOU for the positive feedback, and do come see us agains somtime!

The hostel had a nice chilled-out atmosphere and lots of cool quirks that other hostels miss out, such as the use of free instruments, games and books to use, and free lockable lockers. The staff were very pleasant and informative, and the hostel was pretty well-located. The only downside was the beds themselves, which were fairly small and cramped, especially for taller guests.

Hi there, we're glad to hear that you enjoyed our chilled-out atmosphere :). About the bunk beds - we definitely hear you! We're slowly replacing our older bunks (which are a bit lacking in the head-room department) with a new design - next time you come visit, be sure to tell us that you're on the tall side and we'll do our best to make sure you have a bed that suites you! Thanks for your review, and happy travelling!

great hostel. booked a double room and upgraded to garden view apartment in second building. breakfast ok. gardens lovely and helpful staff too. right by west bahnhof and nice walk to city centre.

The staff do their job to the utmost: managers, receptionists, cleaners, designers. You may find a cheaper place in Vienna, though at Ruthensteiner your really feel what you pay for: the rooms are spacious & spotlessly clean with free lockers & bedside lights. Real wooden furniture, floors, doors. Well-equipped guest kitchen. And the INNER YARD as a cherry on the cake. This hostel has been my choice for Vienna for more than ten years.
