Vienna on a Budget

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 23, 2008

This hostel is one of the best I have ever stayed in. The facilities, furnishings and comfort are among the best I have ever seen in a hostel. THe rooms are spacious with ensuite bathroom and shower room. The rooms have T.V. and wireless internet. The rooms are even serviced every day!
A buffet breakfast is also included in the price and there is a seperate kitchen and lounge for backpackers as well as a lounge and bar upstairs. The hostel also has good security with keycards needed to enter the hostel itself and again to access the every floor and every room.
I really can't fault this hostel except that the staff is not the best. the welcome and help thye offer is good but the hostel in general seems to be understaffed and they can't handle the huge volumes of guests staying at the hostel and I wasn't even there during the summer season. The only other criticism I have is that there are no lockers in the dorms and the lockers downstairs are very small.

Overall a great hostel and one I would recommend and one which I would use again on a visit to Vienna

Unique Quality: Buffet Breakfast included
Keycard security
Free wireless
Bar and lounge
Games room
Backpackers lounge and kitchen
Daily dorm housekeeping

Directions: From Suedbahnhof - Take U-Bahn Line 1 until Keplerplatz and get out by exit Raaber-Bahn-Gasse. The hostel is locted two minutes walk from the station at the crossing Raaber-Bahn-Gasse and Columbusgasse.

MEININGER CITY HOSTEL & HOTEL VIENNA

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 23, 2007

The hostel is situated in a quite residential area, close to the metro, from where you get to downtown for less than 5 min.Also the hostel is close to the South Train Station. It's a pretty new hostel. When we stayed there in September the kitchen and the bar weren't set up yet.

Unique Quality: The rooms are big,bright, very clean, with TV,lockers,telephone,bathroom and WC. Linens and blankets(comforters) are free. Even towels are provided.

The breakfast was huge (all-you-can-eat)-the best breakfast i've seen. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. When we're leaving , the hostel paid for our cab (it costs otherwise 35 Euros), and the guy from the reception helped us with the luggage. This has never happened before :)

There is also internet terminal, but it wasn't free. To use it you have to buy a card from the reception. By the time you log in and your page loads the card was over. That was the only thing i did not like in the hotel. Otherwise, i would stay there again and i would recommend it to everyone.

Also, because we booked online we got discount from the price:)

Directions: near Südbahnhof (South Station) and also near the Kerperplatz station on the metro (U1 line)
