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

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.

Staying here is a pro move
This was my fourth visit. I would not consider staying anywhere else. The staff is great. It is very social. I can't wait to come back.

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!

Very good 8.0
My friend and I stayed here for four nights. We really enjoyed our time, but beware that it gets very hot during the summer time and they don’t have air conditioning. The beds aren’t super comfortable but the room was very clean. Laundry is on the expensive side as it cost 6 euros total. The location of the hostel was perfect though as it is close to restaurants and transportation.

Solid lodging option
A great place for meeting new people and an easy walk to the Ubahn for access to all of Vienna. Very helpful staff.
