I had a lovely time at the hostel; mostly due to the people I met there. The staff were very helpful, able to recommend wine taverns, and easily give directions.

The hostel is very close to train and metro stations. It's in walking distance to the city center. It's clean, safe and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. There is a good breakfast for 3,50 euros.

Recommend this hostel! Has a kitchen for use, wifi is good, location is close to the metro stop but it is a walk (20-25min) to the old city or palace. Clean bathrooms, comfortable beds and in the evening you can grab a drink at the bar as there is a good vibe in the common room area!

Really enjoyed my stay here for two nights, the staff were lovely and the hostel has a great feel. Perfect if you want to relax while meeting new people. Location is very good - less than 5 mins from one of the main metro stations that gets you into the city within 5 mins. Also, there are plenty of supermarkets and places to get food near the hostel. Thank you Hostel Ruthensteiner!

Amazing! One of the top 2-3 hostels I've been been in, at a reasonable price! It's a large hostel with a great atmosphere and not one of those big 'factory hostels' like wombat. Good breakfast, cheap/good drinks, lots of city info, good staff, nice rooms. Gardens/decks are beautiful. Best hostel for hanging out in. Power outlets everywhere, good wifi.

Overall a very nice hostel, great staff. Street outside my room got a bit noisy at night (people coming back drunk)

Ahhh, summer nights - yes it's true, folks do tend to get a bit boisterous in the heat - Viennese and backpackers alike ;). We're really glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay - thanks for the review!

Awesome hostel with really friendly staff :) the facilities are great and the garden areas are really nice.

The hostel is very clean and homely. The room was on the small side but the common space, both the rooms and gardens, were so nice that we didn't need to spend too much time in the bedroom. The instruments for guest use was a very nice touch. The hostel is not right in the centre of Vienna, but the underground system is excellent and only a few minutes walk away. Staff were always friendly and helpful.

Great Place! It's not in the very center of Vienna, but it's easy to get there using metro or renting a bike from the hostel. Bikes were great. The hostel is quite big, but it doesn't feel crowded at all. Loved the courtyards! Staff was friendly, very helpful and made great recommendations. I would stay there again.

THANK YOU for this lovely review! Vienna is a fantastic city to explore by bike - we're so happy that Discover Vienna Tours has enabled us to provide in-house bike rentals all year round. We'll hope to see you here again sometime - until then, happy travelling!

Great hostel, the only thing is check out time at 10 and the cleaning ladies start cleaning the room before that around 9:30 am, so if you stay another night they will wake you up anyway making noise.

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to review us! We do have a firm no-entering-the-dorms-before-checkout-time policy. However, we also have a new cleaning team member, and it seems that she's extra-special-enthusiastic ;). She apologises for waking you up! Thank you for alerting us to this problem - it's reviews like this that help us keep our hostel the great place that it is. All the best, and happy travelling!

The hostel was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Some of our favorite parts were the large chess board in the garden, the free lockers, the breakfast, the piano, the atmosphere, and mostly, the friendly and helpful staff!

Can't say anything bad about this place just truly lovely. Great location just a 20 min walk into the more central area but a 2 minute walk to the subway that gets you everywhere. Extremely clean and the comfiest beds I've had in any hostel.

Clean and really cute hostel with spacious rooms. The kitchen is well staffed and the location perfect (5min from metro stationn, 10 minutes from big shopping street ). The staff is super friendly and the breakfast good for the amount of money.

Thank you for your review! I did just want to point out that our KITCHEN is in fact staffed by...our guests! We have a fully equipped kitchen for guest use, and we do serve a simple-but-tasty breakfast (as well as drinks all day, and on hot days free lemonade) at reception. Hope to see you here again soon!

Great hostel, very big and social with a bar. Staff was very friendly even when dealing with difficult guests that didn't know how to read a bed number.

Great atmosphere. There's a nice outdoor area to hang out in, as well as plenty of common room space inside. I met loads of great people at this hostel and had a great time. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms were clean. Pretty much everything you could ask for from a hostel.
