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!

    We were only in Vienna for one night during a layover, and this hostel made the perfect place to rest our heads and refresh before the next flight! The staff was great and gave us wonderful recommendations to sights and food to make the best of our one night, the room was clean and warm. Couldn't have been better.

    The hostel is located really close to the central station so there's not much looking around for it. The staff at the reception were amazing, all of them! Professional, polite and helpful. The hostel room had all the facilities needed to have a comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend.

    Very well managed, clean place. Friendly staff, Small kitchenette on premise. Breakfast/Bar/Coffee shop. Good spread! The place is close to major attractions, Hardly 2 minute walk to U-Bahn (U1) line. 5-10 minute walk to the Vienna Main train station (and International bus station). I will definitely stay again!

    Really good experience! Spot on cleanliness, only fault would be room had a tv - in previous hostel stayed in this caused an issue re noise at unsocial times. Thankfully not at Meininger! Single beds in room was great, staff efficient, well worth the money

    We only spent one night here but it was lovely, originally booked into a dorm but were taken to a private twin which was a massive result! Staff are very friendly and the place was really clean. There was a little bar but this place is more of a hotel than hostel, no events etc. Only downside is location but the metro is really close and you can be in town soon but you will need to buy tickets/a pass. There are shops etc around though. Overall had a really great stay and good nights sleep!

    Good hostel, it totally worth the good price paid. Only thing to pay attention is not to include the breakfast because as far as I saw it’s really nothing special. Better to have something in a cafe nearby.

    Not recommended if you are looking for hostel vibes. It is just like any other hotel property but they've just added extra beds in a room. Staff was so rude during my check-in time i.e 8 PM. Why work in hospitality when you cannot even smile? Anyways, I've loved other Meininger properties except this one. Not recommended at all.
