Hostelworld says:

Meininger hostels have a reputation for awesome locations and Vienna's Central Station property is no exception. Situated on the Favoritenstrasse shopping mile, it's just a stone's throw away from the city centre. Then again, getting around from here isn't hard, what with U-Bahn Station Keplerplatz on the doorstep. After a hard days exploring, chill out in the bar, kick back in the lobby or call home on the free internet. If you have any energy left, hit the games room for a little pool, table football or PlayStation. Or if you fancy an early night, all rooms have a TV!

Property Information:

We are located on the shopping mile Favoritenstrasse not far from the city centre. You can reach the Stephansdom, the Hotel Sacher or the Staatsoper by U-Bahn in just 10 minutes, and the Schoenbrunn castle in 15 minutes. The U-Bahn Station Keplerplatz on the U1 line is virtually on our doorstep. It's a 20 minute walk to Schloss Belvedere and the Botanical Gardens.

    We spent a really good time there. We stayed just for one night, but it was enough to understand that everything works: we could use lockers, luggage room, wi fi. The room was confortable and clean and so cheap! Staff was very helpful and nice.
