Hostelworld says:

Hostelworld guests have said MEININGER Vienna Downtown Franz has an 'atmosphere more like a hotel - very clean, calm, and secure', with the 'facilities and cleanliness of a hotel, but the social aspect of a hostel'. It's located just a short walk away from the Schottering U-bahn station which connects quickly to the city centre, and is surrounded by restaurants and cafes. We like that this hostel is pet-friendly and served an easy-on-the-budget all-you-can-eat breakfast.

Property Information:

The MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz is located in lively Leopoldstadt, Vienna's second district, between the Danube Canal and the Danube. Here, in the former Jewish quarter and one of the town's most popular areas, you can find ample green spaces and the Karmeliter Market with numerous stalls, cafes and restaurants that offer dishes from around the world in addition to local treats. The colourful life of the quarter has its effect on the surrounding alleys with their great number of artists' workshops, ancient perfume stores and various curiosities.

Those who wish to visit the Vienna Hofburg, the Sisi Museum, Schonbrunn Palace and the Prater, or see 'the Kiss' by Gustav Klimt, will be happy to find great public transport links. The Schottenring is right around the corner. From there you can catch the U2, the U4, trams 1, 2 and 31 and no fewer than nine bus lines.

The hotel is located in a modern, straight-edged, fair-faced concrete building. All 131 non-smoking rooms have modern furnishings kept in a clear-cut design. Each room includes air conditioning, a shower/toilet, a flat-screen TV, a telephone and a hair dryer, and individual stylistic elements radiate Viennese charm. You sleep in single, double, multi-bed rooms or dorms. Bed linen is always included.

In the lobby, the games room and the guest kitchen you can meet other nice guests, play a round of table football, cook your own meal, use our washing machine or surf at one of our internet terminals. There is free WiFi access in all public zones, and drinks, sandwiches, muffins and cookies are available at the bar and the reception.

    It is a very nicely designed place, It was easy to get around from the hostel. It was safe and really clean. The dorms are really nice with TV, storage and a clean new modern shower and toilet. Every bed has its own reading lamp and plug. I would stay here again.

    The rooms are very clean and the beds comfortable and since the shower and toilet are separated we wouldn't have to wait so it was good. Overall i really like this hostel but it's not the best place to meet people, as said in the other comments, and my friends had a of trouble connecting to the wifi. But i would definetly recommand it for a few nights in Vienna!
