    Hostel Ruthensteiner was an excellent hostel. The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The communal space was friendly, clean and inviting. The rooms and separate bathrooms were small, but clean and comfortable. The breakfasts looked good, but as I'm gluten free there were not enough options to make it worth it for me. Overall an excellent place and I would definitely book there again.

    I had an amazing stay here! This was my first time in a hostel as a solo female traveller and the atmosphere makes it really easy to make friends. The dinners and evening activities make it really easy to meet people. However, if you don't want to go out, you can hardly hear anything from downstairs when you are in the bedrooms. I absolutely loved Vienna and plan to come back soon - and I will stay here again!

    Really nice place. The staff is so friendly and helpful, and there’s activities almost every night. The rooms are placed far away from the bar, so they’re completely quiet at night.
