This hostel is the right place to stay in Vienna. Very good facilities (garden, music instruments, computers and more) and helpful staff. Will stay there again for sure, during next visit to the city.

Ruthensteiner is a really incredible hostel. As a solo traveller the bar and common area was a great touch. The staff is super friendly and was more than happy to help me figure out good places to see while i was there.

Ruthensteiner is one of my favorite hostels! I stayed at a plethora of hostels and this one is TOP-CLASS. I checked in with a friendly staff and 10 minutes later I'm playing drinking games with 10 people at the bar. THAT is a first impression I love to have as a 22-year old guy traveling on his own. The chalkboard with all of the events are updated superbly and so helpful. This hostel made my trip to Vienna that much more special. I recommend 100%!!

The hostel was located in a walking distance to Hoffburg Palace and Museumquartier (aprox. 30 minutes), and Schobrun Palace (20 minutes). The staff were very nice and helpfull. The bunk bed was short but there wasnt any stairs, so u have to climb it! There was a plug and light for each bed, which was good. They have lockers in the bedroom as well. The bar downstairs was nice to meet people and hang out. The toilets were too small.

This is a great hostel to stay at. At stayed both at the ladies' dorm and the second time I had a room for myself. The room is clean and comfortable, the atmosphere at the hostel is good, the staff is helpful and the location is excellent, just a few minutes walk from the train station. I highly recommend!

really enjoyed my stay here, it's a little further out from the centre to other hostels, but worth the investment. I'd definitely stay here again.

Can be noisy at night (but that's the fault of the guests rather than the fault of the hostel).

I was most impressed by the cleanliness of this hostel. The staff was very friendly and common areas such and the kitchen and garden were impressive as well.

One of the best hostels I have stayed it. The staff were all very lovely, they knew alot about the city - tones of information on what to do and where to go. great bike rentals to get around the city with. Close to the main train station, so getting in late at night was an easy walk to the hostel. Can't say enough about how great this place was. Great place common space as well. Definitely stay here if you are in Vienna !

Had a great time here both inside and outside the hostel, the excellent transport more than makes up for the hostel being slightly out the center of town.

The hostel has 2 buildings that i didn't know about so my room was across the street from the reception and main area. I thought the bathroom and shower was gross. The people in my room were cool but we had two men easily over 45+ and they were creepy. Also really dumb the beds were numbered and you had to be in the same bed. I had no idea so i had to switch keys with the guy in the bed i was supposed to be in. Would not recommend stay at the wombat.

We're so sorry that you weren't happy with your stay! Our key system is standard for hostels - we assign bed #s so that we know which beds are vacant and need to be cleaned each day. We also clean all our bathrooms thoroughly at least once a day - of course it does occasionally happen that things get out of hand between cleanings - our apologies for any mess! As for 'creeps' - most of our guests are lovely - but maybe the women's dorm would be a better fit for you? Thanks, and happy travelling!

On our month long filming trip through seven countries, the Hostel Ruthensteiner Vienna was a notable experience. We had ten cast and crew members who enjoyed the many amenities offered, from the kitchen to the laundry to the common areas of relaxation both inside and out. It was so much fun to hang out at the lounge at night after a long day's work, and to enjoy exchanging conversations from so many different people of varied cultures. A very homey and comfortable time.
