unfortunately, all Metro and tram stops are a few meters away and it is rather far to walk to the city. I had a six bed room, it was very quiet there. Even the teenagers in the next room were quiet and nice. It is possible to lend a lock for 10Euro, you get the 10Euro back when you return the lock.
Everithing was great. Clean, nice staff, good location, not expencive. I'll comming again in MEININGER hotels ;)
This is a nice place to stay, but it tend to be crouded all the time at the reception, so be patient. They have a nice guest kitchen and laundry and drying machines. The breakfast is not included but it's amazing! The location was pretty good, like 500 meters from a subway stop and a few minutes away (by subway) from all the atractions and city center. I would recomend it, and actually, I'm staying in another Meininger Hotel right now :)
was like walking into a club, ready to party with the friendly staff
Everything was great, one of the most clean and modern hostels I've been. The food is cheap and delicious. The only bad thing is that is not that close to the city centrum, but doesn't matter. Is still very nice
Hostel was ok. It's much more like a hotel so the rooms were clean but the atmosphere was a bit sterile. There was not a great social area and the kitchen was tiny so you couldn't be in there eating or cooking with more than three people. Kitchen was clean and modern though. Location is ok, near the station but the area is a bit dull.
Really more like a top-notch student hotel! I stayed 3 nights at the Meininger Vienna Downtown Franz and had a wonderful experience. Very friendly staff, clean rooms - even supplied you with shampoo, soap, and a hairdryer. Each room has its own bathroom, and the beds and personal areas are comfortable and stylish. An incredible value for money!
Really great hostel with more of a hotel feel, great value for money! A lot of families staying at the hotel gave a nice atmosphere. Slightly out of the main centre, but still within walking distance. Maybe not the nicest location, but still felt safe with the security of the hostel.
Great and helpful staff, this hostel is a short walk from the city centre and there is a supermarket only aprox. 5 houses next to it.
They should tell you at check in that if you lose a key it will cost 5 Euros.

Too many families, the bar area could be better
it was the biggest hostel i have ever seen.i felt like i was in hotel.
The location is fantastic for getting into the city by foot, if you don't mind walking 20 minutes or so. My only complaint is the kitchen being entirely too small as far as seating. Or even if it were more welcoming to eat evening meals in the common lobby space. For a massive hotel/hostel there are two tables to eat at and the three nights that a friend and I stayed there, everyone was acting like animals claiming tables and not letting others eat.
Great hostel in good location, just 5mins away from the subway, very clean and spacious (except for the kitchen). Only negative thing is the wifi which could work better. I definitely recommend it.
Tiny kitchen, wifi in the rooms wasnt so great, everything else was ok.
Great place yo stay, the atmosphere is not so good for students pr young people

This is a very friendly, moderately-conveniently located, clean, spacious, and well equipped hostel. Only one downside: Wifi. The wifi is absolutely horrendous.
Very nice, clean hostel - well really more like a hotel than a hostel as other reviewers have noted. Many large groups and families sticking to themselves make it a rather non-social place. The facilities are nice - good kitchen (though a bit small), decent bar, however the wifi was horrendous. Your network was overlapping channels with other networks in range when I checked. If that's still true it is easy to fix and should make things better. If fixed, I would highly recommend this place.
