About Hostel Ruthensteiner

This is the perfect place to stay in Vienna! On a quiet side street, but Vienna's main shopping street, ‘the Mariahilferstrasse’ is just around the corner. From here you can either walk to many major sites or hop on the metro or tram just a minute or 2 away. We are located right between the 2 major areas that you will not want to miss - both World Heritage Sites - magnificent Palace Schoenbrunn and the enchanting Old Town. Perfect!

Friends & family-run & "one of a kind, not one of a chain!", ours is the ideal hostel for the individual traveler or small friend & family groups. We look forward to welcoming you!!!

Some of our many amenities include a well-equipped self-service kitchen, 2 lovely gardens complete with barbeque and over-sized chess set, lockers, FREE Internet Surf-stations, FREE WiFi in the whole building and rooms, FREE maps, laundry facilities, book trade, games & musical instruments for your use. We display "Art from Around the World" & have revolving artwork (paintings & sculptures). We have a cozy bar & serve delicious local draft beer, wines, juices, cocktails & a variety of non-alcoholic beverages. We also offer very popular tours that leave right from the hostel. Some of these include: bike & walking tours & an all-day "Grape Grazing/Biking" tour to the Wachau wine-growing region in the Danube Valley! Great fun!

Accommodation Information

We can offer you cheap beds, everything from dorm beds (mixed, female & male only, if you prefer) to beds in Private Double, 2,3,4,5,6 & 8 bedded rooms - all including linens. Our rooms are very comfortable, clean & cozy.
