We stayed 3 nights in a double room and actually we felt as locals in our own flat, located next door to the main building. Very calm and spacious the flat includes everything you need (kitchen, washing machine,...). We totally enjoyed our stay !!

I got a bunk bed, but there was no ladder to climb up into my bed. The toilets and showers are quite small, even for a skinny person. But all in all the value for money was ok.

The staff was truly wonderful. Their organization and ability to help you plan an itinerary were above and beyond.

Lower bunk was a little too tight, even for smaller people. Overall it was good for the price.

Overall a really nice hostel and great value. Beds each had an outlet (and wifi was everywhere!!), clean, free sheets, really nice atmosphere. The bar area and the common room were comfy and was filled with people, cheap drinks as well. He garden was really cute, if it wasn't cold we definitely would've utilized it. Decent location, but a few stops away from the actual city center. Lockers were free and safe! Towels were €1 though. Would definitely recommend this hostel, and hope to return.

Room was a little small for three people to move around, but it was very very clean.

It was awesome! Staff was super friendly and helpful, good location to downtown, and a great atmosphere. They have computers to use, iPads, instruments for playing, and are willing to help in anyway they can. Definitely the place to stay in Vienna.

We stayed at this hostel for 4 nights and it was unforgettable experience. We booked twin room by mistake as we wanted to have a double bed one so we asked for a change and we got an amazing one room apartment next door. Staff are really friendly and helpful, there were many good tips what to see, where to go for a drink or club, what's on opera or theater scene and which event is taking place daily! It's one of the best hostels we've ever stayed at-huge thanks to all staff there! We'll be back!

I enjoyed my stay at Ruthensteiner and felt immediately at home and at ease. The staff was welcoming, friendly and always willing to answer my questions and recommended wonderful sites to see within the city. The continental breakfast was both affordable/delicious and the rooms were clean and cozy! Ruthensteiner was one of the best-equipped hostels I have ever seen! You could play an instrument, have a drink read a book, cook, do laundry, or play games and even leave your luggage after check-out

It was a little bit tricky to find the hostel at night (I asked the direction to wombat hostel where I found on the main street) Other than that room was clean, very nice staffs. They have all the information for touristy stuff. Had a nice stay :)

Great location, especially if you're arriving/departing through the Westbahnhof! It's actually just around the corner from Wombat's hostel. I found my room really spacious and clean, plus each bed has a light and a plug-in. The kitchen is also nice, clean, and big! I really wish that this hostel promoted more events, like walking tours, pub crawls, etc like other hostels do.

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to review us, we're really glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here! As for tours etc. - it's low season in Vienna right now, so all the really good tours have shut down until spring. Come back in April and we'll have a nice selection of walking & biking tours, all bookable at reception and with in-house pick up. There's also an excellent pub crawl that meets at a pub right around the corner - next time just ask at reception for nightlife tips and events!

The staff at this hostel was absolutely impeccable. We had to deal with staying an extra night and getting home without flying due to a sick friend and the staff went so far out of the way to help us and save money on the extra traveling. They were welcoming and I will absolutely recommend them to any of my friends planning a trip to Vienna. THANKYOU!

It was very clean and we always felt safe there and that our stuff was safe there. The room was great for its price and the location made travel throughout vienna easy.

Great atmosphere and really amazing staff. Had a nice private room, with good shower facilities and towels provided. It's very close to the West Bahnhof and has easy access to the old city via tram, underground, or walking down the marvelous Mariahilfestrasse. Recommended!

Wonderful hostel. The staff were friendly and really helpful. Great communal spaces and kitchen. There's lots of info available about things to do in Vienna and even little pieces of paper to take with you with directions. A all round.
