Hostel Ruthensteiner is the perfect place from which to discover Vienna, the city of music, fascinating history, superb museums, great coffee houses, stunning architecture and exciting nightlife. We are located equidistant between the City Center and Palace Schoenbruenn and within easy walking distance of both.
We have all different types of beds and rooms, depending on your preference, ranging from beds in a dorm (using your own sheets or sleeping bag or rent sheets from us) to beds in 2, 3, 4, or 5-bedded rooms, and a couple of single rooms.
All rooms are complete with sinks (hot and cold water). Showers and bathrooms are just down the hall.
All beds in single, twin, 3-, 4- and 5-Bed Rooms come complete with bed linens. The dorms come with free included "sleeping rolls" or sheets so you have everything you need. The free and speedy WIFI works everywhere!
All prices include use of the facilities: free use of the kitchen and barbeque, lockers, unlimited hot showers and use of musical instruments. We have a lovely garden with handmade furniture and an oversized chess set for relaxing and taking some time off from sight-seeing. In addition, we have Internet and Email kiosks for connecting with family and friends and for travel planning. There is a self-service laundromat in the hostel. We also run our own, very affordable Bicycle rental.
City maps, Opera- Theaterprograms, Vienna Sightseeing and other travel-related information are displayed in the reception. Additional free City maps, museum guides and other information are available from the friendly staff at the front desk.
