Loved me stay there. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The place makes you feel right at home.
One of the best hostels that I have ever stayed in. Can't say enough good about it.
Only stayed here 1 night but it was probably the best hostel I've been to - actual bar downstairs with tons of hangout space but rooms are quiet. SUPER clean. Kitchen and self-service laundry. Bookshare, instruments to play(!), friendly staff, patio, etc. Walking distance from Westbahnhof; only a few metro stops from the sights.
Really lovely hostel. Exceptional staff - very knowledgable and helpful. Great kitchen/laundry facilities and common room. Not far to westbahnhof station.
Very nice place, will come to visit here again next time.
Lovely quiet friendly place. Great breakfast and bar happy hour. A bit far from sights but good subways.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Hostel itself had a great atmosphere whenever you walked in. People hanging out, books to read, games to play, folks chilling by the bar.
Great hostel with a friendly atmosphere. I especially liked the garden! Close to the train station and metro and a couple of supermarkets but a bit of a walk from the centre. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would stay here again.
Very nice relaxed atmosphere - small bar, good for a quiet drink but not a big night out. Staff were super friendly and nice to deal with - really accommodating with left luggage and a shower after a night train despite check in time! 24 hour check in was great. Close to large station and good transport links for the rest of Vienna - not too far from Schönbrunn Palace.
Very nice hostel but was quite mellow in its atmosphere, but that could be your thing. Excellent facilities!
the best hostel i've been to. the staff was super helpful and nice and even though it's far from the old town it's right next to westbahnhof. as a solo traveler i felt that the atmosphere was great for making friends and getting to know other guests!

This hostel was really close to the train station and U-Bahn and a good walk into the city centre. It was great to be able to hire a bike (though it would be good if there was a fee for hiring just for the morning). The bar was very social and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Everything about Rutgensteiner was fantastic, staff were fabulous!
The bar in the hostel is not exceptional. Ppl just r in the common area to have dinner & go out of the hostel for the nightlife. It's located very close to the train station
Top Hostel to stay in and one of the best in our worldly travels and use of Hostel accomodation. Friendly and helpful staff great bar for evening drinks and chats with other International travellers. Big 10 out of 10 from us for second stay at Rithenstiener, 2011 and 2014. Cheers Wayne and Cathy
Helpful staff close to the train station but not so close to anything else without paying for train ticket. Good atmosphere downstairs- nice courtyard good commonroom with homely feel. Safety not so good, doors don't self lock and location is in the backstreets- intimidating.
Thank you for your hospitality!! We were very tired when we arrived... Your kindness and careful concern helped us enjoy Vienna more delight.
Nice hostel, room was a good size, liked the staff. Would stay here again. Fairly social, kitchen gets very busy. Not the hostel if you're looking for a party but a nice place to stay.
