    5 star hostel

    Perfect if you are travelling alone! Nice bar where all people hang out and you can easily find other travellers to go out and do things with. What makes this place different is the management. They really care about the place and the guests and all the employees those to! So if you're looking for a clean, fun, friendly and all around great place you found it!

    Best hostel I've stayed in so far

    I would highly recommend staying here! I had a long day but when I checked in here my mood completely changed for the better. The staff and volunteers are so kind, genuine, and helpful. The atmosphere of the hostel is really friendly and comforting (and the decor is beautiful). This was my first Christmas away from my family and I'm so glad I spent it here because it's such a happy environment. I met some really funny people so it almost felt like a second home :) Thank you to all of the volunteers and staff for the delicious food, excellent service, and a lovely stay (and for the Christmas gift ;) ) if I come back to the city, I will definitely be staying here

  • 8,0.Very good

    Close to train station, quiet/courteous environment, and safe. This was my first hostel experience and although I can't complain, I wouldn't do it again. People snore, keep odd hours and turn on lights after you've gone to bed. The eye shield to sleep and ear plugs saved the day for me. If all you need is a place to crash, by all means, this hostel is a good one! The wall plugs outside in the hallway were put to use with my flat iron. .I never had to wait to use the bathroom or shower and they were kept clean. The common areas were clean and had multiple outlets to plug in your phone, etc. Computer area was a nice touch. It gave me something to do on my free time. All in all, this was a good experience but too European for me :)

    Great family atmosphere Hostel!

    Hostel has a great friendly vibe, with a family feel. Activities, including pay-what-you-wish dinner every night, and in-hostel bar. In a decent location, walking distance to public transport and shopping.

    Misleading hotels booking not 4bed, really 10bed

    Dueling snorers and drunks kept me awake most nights of my stay. Social hostel with activities and a bar. Has washing machine and dryer without hassling anyone. Two fridges and kitchen. Paid for a 4bunk but got a 6bunk with an additional room that had 4bed(where ppl were going in and out of). So really it was 10 bunk room sharing a shower and toilet.

    Best Hostel in Vienna

    This is the best hostel I have had the pleasure to stay. They have great common areas, garden/patio areas it’s really nice. I booked one night and then stayed 2 more. There are some great traditional Austrian restaurants nearby 2 really close. Then there is an Australian themed bar called Travel Shack. The hostel does dinners pay what you can a few nights. This place makes it easy to make friends.

    Lovely hostel with friendly staff!

    My friend and I stayed at the Ruthensteiner Hostel for one night while interrailing through Europe. We had booked an en-suite room and even got our own studio apartment! The staff working at the hostel was friendly and welcoming, and the hostel had a nice feeling. They had a little bar that was open in the evenings and offered a breakfast buffet for a few euros. We will definitely stay at the Ruthensteiner again if we go back to Vienna!
