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 Description

Welcome to MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz

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.

Each room includes a shower/toilet, a flat-screen TV and a hair dryer, and individual stylistic elements radiate Viennese charm. You sleep in single, double, multi-bed rooms or dorms.

    Stayed here for 4 nights with a friend and couldn’t have had a better stay. The staff were super friendly and the hostel itself is located in a safe area close to a metro/ trams and the city center. Rooms were cleaned, and good quality beds. The shower was nice and hot and temperature easily changeable. I didn’t pay for the breakfast, however when I saw what was available, it was a decent amount with lots of variety. They also had computers and a place to cook. Will definitely stay again. !!!

    Good location albeit not a 'quaint' old neighborhood. Little discount grocery store around the corner. Close to public transportation. Walking distance to Old Vienna within the Ringstrasse. Great, friendly, helpful staff.

    Since we only stayed for 1 night, we didn't use any facilities of the hostel besides the room itself. The bed does not have a curtain so that is kinda a big minus for me. Besides that, everything was okay. The staff was super nice. The location was not the best. But overall, it is a good price for what it offers. I would consider staying here again on a budget trip.

    Really great place to stay -- Meininger offers the service of a hotel at the price of a hostel. Loved the room, WC facilities, breakfast, kitchen, building -- everything! The location was rather inconvenient with the closest metro station being a good 15 minute walk away. However, everything else was fab, and would definitely return here or stay at another Meininger! Meininger claims to give a 10% discount for EU/Interrail pass holders which they never honour when you contact them. Bad service.

    It’s not a place for backpackers or travellers. You will find only people on their school or business trips there. The place is good but doesn’t feel like a hostel.

    The room (dorm sleeping 4) was so small that you have the impression you sleep next to the other person. Distance between beds was 10 cm. There was no space for a chair in the room! No good ventilation in the toilet/shower. The communal kitchen for the hostel is so small!!! There is hardly room to move in there. Terribly small kitchen for such a big hostel. The reception room has uncomfortable furniture (no sofas, just chairs). Overall - this is an uncomfortable place to stay.
