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

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. The Schottenring is right around the corner. From there you can catch the U2, the U4, trams 1, 2 and 31 and no fewer than nine bus lines.

The hotel is located in a modern, straight-edged, fair-faced concrete building. All 131 non-smoking rooms have modern furnishings kept in a clear-cut design. 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. Bed linen is always included.

In the lobby, the games room and the guest kitchen you can meet other nice guests, play a round of table football, cook your own meal, use our washing machine or surf at one of our internet terminals.

    Best hostel I've been in Europe (and I've already been through lots of hostels here). The neighborhood is quiet, the bed and room were comfortable, you can cook, do laundry and store your food, there's bath gel in the shower room, and the staff was always helpful. If you want to be in the center of Vienna without the craziness, then this hostel is for you.

    Atmosphere of a hotel and hostel in one. They’ve thought of just about everything to make your stay great. The downtown area is a metro/trolly ride away, but the location is nice near the water and with a grocery right around the corner. 100% recommend.

    The hostel is clean, secure, spacious and with good facilities. The staff are super helpful and friendly. The location, while quite a walk from the main attractions, is in an interesting area with local restaurants and cafes. It’s very easy to travel around by public transport or walking from the hostel.

    The rooms are very nice and come with a nice shower shared by only the people in the rooms. Top bunk has good privacy. Wifi was strong. Staff was really friendly and the kitchen was easy to use and very neat. it is a bit of a walk from attractions and subway/street car, but it's a nice walk by the river. Not that much of a social place imo, more like a hotel than hostel. bed was very comfortable, but there was consistent banging down the hall in the middle of the night which was disturbing.

    Overall it is great value for your money. With regards to the lockers in the rooms, at least in the room I was in, almost all of the lockers could not be locked because the hardware was too short and nothing latched.

    more of a hotel than a hostel, as it explains, so not much atmosphere, but its really clean and has top notch beds as a result for a real nights sleep. 10 minutes from the closest metro to connect you to city centre, so its a bit out of the way, but not inconvenient by any means. the staff was all really friendly and helpful, and they had great kitchen facilities and everything else you need for cooking etc. Really comfortable stay
