Great place to stay at, though not directly in the city centre. It´s about a twenty minute walk to the city centre but easily accessible by Metro. The communal area and hostel bar is very nice, and manages to close at a reasonable hour so other guests are not kept awake. The hostel is a very pleasant place, a nice terrace, clean bathrooms and bedrooms, and helpful staff. Would stay here again.

Easily the BEST hostel I've stayed at in my two months of travelling!! friendly, clean, well priced, and just a short hop away from the city centre by Virnna's U-bahn. I was only here for a night but I wish I could have extended my stay. I cannot recommend this place enough!!

Absolutely fantastic hostel. Gardens were beautiful, and the bar friendly and inviting. The staff and other travellers at this hostel made it fantastic. The perfect place to stay if you're coming in and out of Wien westbahnhof.

The room was beautiful--decorated by an artist in residence. There were many services and could have stayed here multiple nights.

A great place to stay, not particularly central but easily walkable/very close to the tube. Great atmosphere in the bar/ common room and a well equipped kitchen.

The hostel was very clean and generally great, although the bathrooms are too small to do anything in. You can borrow just about anything from reception which is great. The location is out of the city but right next to a main station and underground stop so as long as you have a railcard it's fine. There are many supermarkets nearby etc

Hey there, thanks for taking the time to review us! About your bathroom...I admit that a few of our WCs are a bit on the small side...but surely large enough for all the important activities ;). And as for our LOCATION - we're actually quite centrally located, around the corner from a major metro station + just a few minutes walk from the lovely Mariahilferstrasse, Vienna's most popular shopping avenue & car-free urban paradise. So no need to hop on the subway to get in on the Viennese action!

I have stayed in 4 star hotels that were not as clean as Ruthensteiner. The room was spotless when we arrived and the toilet and shower areas were always clean and well stocked. The staff was extremely helpful, I know that they typically house visitors much younger than my sister and I but they made wonderful recommendations for places and ways to sightsee and their restaurant recommendation was so good that we ate there every night. I felt very safe and welcomed. Highly recommend them!

WOW, this review really knocked us out of our seats!!! I'm sending it on to Forbes right this minute. Seriously though - thank you so much! Come back and enjoy our hostel anytime!

I loved how spacious the rooms were, I was in the new building and the fact that it had an en suite bathroom and an additional separate vanity was amazing. I also liked that there were bathrooms in the hallways. Having a bar in the hostel was a plus and also having the option to buy breakfast.

Super cosy and fun hostel to stay at. The staff were friendly and there was a huge board of suggestions for things to do in the reception area. They also offered free elderflower drinks for tasting at the reception which we enjoyed! They also have a storage space for luggage (€2 deposit) and happy hour with nice cheap beer at the bar area.

We're so happy to hear that you liked the Elderflower Lemonade! Our lemonade is a bit of a twist on the traditional Austrian 'Hollersaft Gespritzt', or Elderflower Soda - very tasty and refreshing, the perfect summertime drink really. If you want to sample another truly Viennese elderflower-beverage, try the HUGO cocktail, it's fantastic! Thanks so much for your review, and happy travelling!!!
