Vienna's original independent backpacker's hostel, Hostel Ruthensteiner is the perfect place to stay

With its friendly, international atmosphere in a smoke-free environment. Great prices, kitchen, gardens and reception open around the clock! Lonely Planet has this to say about us: “If stars were given out for hostels, the first truly independent backpackers in central Europe would be a five. Start with a quirky low-key vibe then add in an immaculate, modern facility with more renovations in progress, mix in a strong dose of personality and options galore and you’ll have a feel for this place. A beautifully handmade wooden bar, music-lounge room, and lovely garden area also enhance the surroundings.”

The Hostel Ruthensteiner is perfectly located and newly renovated, the early 1800's historical building is just a 4-minute walk from the Westbahnhof Train Station and one quiet street over from the Mariahilferstrasse, Vienna’s main shopping mile,  it is conveniently situated in a quiet side street close to the City Center and lovely Palace Schoenbrunn. From here you can either walk to many major sites or hop on the metro or tram just a minute or 2 away.

Comfortable and cozy Rooms in central Vienna

In each room you will find a sink with hot and cold water. Showers and toilets are just down the hall (dorm-style). Or get one the Rooms with private Bathroom / Toilet.

  • dorm beds  - both mixed and female / male
  • doubles  (with or without private facilities)
  • triples
  • quads (with or without private facilities)
  • 5, 6 and 8 bed rooms with private showers and toilets.

Your days will probably be very full, but try to take an afternoon off for much-need relaxation in one of our 2 gorgeous gardens to breathe the fresh air, listen to the birds, smell the flowers and to catch up on your journal or email or even a nap before an evening of entertainment.

Start with a Happy Hour cocktail or delicious, locally-brewed Ottakringer beer fresh on tap in the bar or on the terrace before heading out.  Or you might just head to the supermarket just around the corner and buy those secret ingredients for a perfect Barbeque night in the garden with new-found friends from around the world. Then move into the bar for an impromptu jam session. Here you will find an assortment of musical instruments (piano, guitars, ukulele, djembe, and more). After all, music is the universal language and it always seems to get people “in the mood”!

Their friendly, knowledgeable, multilingual staff will do everything to make your stay in Vienna the very best!!!  Whether it is helping you plan your itinerary, tell you about special exhibitions, sign you up for their wonderful bike rentals or the “Grape-Grazing” tour, tell you where the best restaurants and clubs are, how to get tickets for concerts and for the opera and how to make your way to the Danube Island for a taste of the Caribbean on a hot, summer night!

If art is what you are looking forward to in Vienna, you can start directly in the Hostel. Hostel Ruthensteiner in Vienna also acts as an art gallery with pictures from different modern artists as well as replicas of all those wonderful Austrian painters like Klimt, Hundertwasser and many more greeting you on every wall of the Hostel.

Go there and let them take care of you! We promise you won’t be disappointed!

Traditional style hostel with a fantastic atmosphere. Staff are warm, friendly and helpful. Our double ensuite room was amazing with excellent quality towels and bed linens. Breakfasts are reasonably priced and healthy, coffee is only one euro throughout the day, and the bar and lounge is a wonderful social space. The whole place is very clean and I cannot recommend this hostel more highly! And its only a five min walk from Westbahnhof train station.

Hostel Ruthensteiner has just about everything that makes for a really great Hostel experience. This is first and foremost because of it's owners - who are a particularly warm and welcoming couple - and because of their fantastic staff who are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and extremely available to the guests. I had a particularly complicated issue while I was in Vienna, regarding trying to figure out the local post office guidelines, and how to ship a delicate package back to the U.S. The staff at Ruthensteiner were absolutely great, and went above and beyond to help me figure everything out. They even did some online research and made some calls for me because I don't speak any German. They were super friendly, and seemed genuinely happy to help. Hostel Ruthensteiner also has a great community room with cozy furniture, as well as a bar room with a piano, a guitar and various other musical instruments. There are always some merry folks hanging out in there; and it's just a warm, inviting atmosphere overall. I heard some amazing music and met some nice people there. Also, the rooms are clean, simple and attractive. And they have a very clean, functional kitchen, and an easy to use coin operated laundry, as well. And - as if that's not enough - they also offer a simple but good ( and affordable ) "pay as you go" breakfast every morning, as well as a convenient "ala carte" menu with many other breakfast options. The neighborhood is fairly quiet, yet central, and very accessible to public transport. And it's just a short stroll from Hostel Ruthensteiners' front door to get groceries, or to find a variety of shops for pretty much anything else you'd need. Overall, speaking as a seasoned hostel goer, I feel that Hostel Ruthensteiner has truly raised the bar for the hostel experience. I cannot recommend them more highly.

The hostel is situated 3 minutes walk from West Banhhof station, were the airport bus stops every half hour. It is new (or recently renewed) and has a very friendly atmosphere. Our room was in the building across the street and it was comfortable though small. The only inconvenience was the lack of a wardrobe. The staff is really helpful and friendly. They offered us a free breakfast to apologise for the problems of booking in Internet, a very nice detail we didn't expect at all! You can cook your own meals in a well-equiped and clean kitchen and they offer a cheap and correct breakfast. There is a nice patio and even a piano you can play from 10 am to 11 am. If we ever come back to Viena we wouldn't doubt to repeat!

a lot of hostels have kteihcns. it's nice to be able to cook sometimes, esp. if you're travelling for a long while. and you meet so many lovely people in hostels from all over the world, they can also tell you things about other destinations that you wouldn't find in a guide book. if money weren't an option, i'd still stay in hostels more than not. i'm not super social and into going out and all that but i just ended up meeting the most interesting, amazing people travelling. i've stayed with a couple i met in a hostel when i visited their country, i dated a boy i met in a hostel whom i'm still very close to.

This hostel is by far the best one I've ever stayed in. It is so clean and cozy. We stayed at one of the double rooms and the bed was big and comfy and the bathroom was huge and spotless clean. The lovely staff at Reception was so helpful, tey know a lot about the city, and always have the best tips and Erin, the owner, is a star! The hostel is nice and quiet to sleep, even though they have a lovely bar with music instruments for guests. Also the location is good, as it is so close to Westbahnoff, which takes you to the city center in 7 minutes. Ruthensteiner truly is a gem in this lovely city.

Located close to Westbahnof, this tidy hostel proves to be welcoming. During high season, I arrived without a reservation and the staff members were accommodating in checking me in. Just be mindful that in the morning, they need some time to re-arrange guests who have prolonged their stay so they may come off short - but, they are just doing their job as effectively as they can! The woman who runs the hostel is very sweet and she will go out of her way to help you. The hostel pay phone can actually accept incoming calls; and there are 3 computers for Internet and you pay 2 euros for a set time of 45 minutes (if I'm not mistaken). The dorm rooms are bright and airy. Makeup mirrors in dorm room as well! The storage is great - big lockers in the dorm rooms and large lockers for storage pre-check-in or post-check-out! There is a great common room - with instruments for all to use (including a piano & guitars), as well as a breakfast/dining area, kitchen and an adorable outdoor garden. Vienna is a beautiful city and it is great knowing your luggage and valuables are in a safe place. Staff members are very much multi-lingual.
