    I've stayed in about 50 hostels worldwide and this is unequivocally the best hostel for atmosphere I've ever stayed at. It is so easy to meet people because of the bar area downstairs that has a SUPER chill vibe. The staff are great, and my private room was the perfect size. They have a breakfast (for pay) but it's worth it and made with healthy ingredients. I had an amazing time here and the location makes it easy to get to the center via public transit. Thanks so much guys! See you soon!

    This is my second stay at Hostel Ruthensteiner and it was really worth it. Nice place to stay, get to know other people, or just relax from your own vacation. It's easy to get to other places and the kitchen is great to have. The staff was really friendly and helpful!

    The staff was very kind. The room was clean, everything was OK. The kitchen is fully equipped. The only negative experience was that the chatter from the bar was audible and very loud after 10 PM also.

    For the price it would be nice if they included some type of free breakfast even if its very simple. The rooms are great and the whole experience is very enjoyable. As someone who is not that young -neither that old- I enjoyed that is a perfect mixture between calmness and fun (music, beers, conversations). I would suggest also putting some curtains to the beds as to increase privacy.
