Feel at home with us
- Hostel Ruthensteiner is the perfect place to stay in Vienna. It has been the first independent backpacker’s hostel since 1968 with a friendly, international atmosphere in a smoke-free environment. “One of a kind and not one of a chain”, our artistic hostel is family run and is ideal for individual travelers or small family groups. See what other Guests said in their reviews.
- FREE WIFI, FREE Internet PCs and iPads for rent- It was never so easy to contact your folks back home!
- Newly renovated, our early 1800′s historical building is just a stone’s throw from the Westbahnhof Train Station and between the City Center and the lovely Palace Schoenbrunn. It is both centrally located and in a quiet side street and with a beautiful garden where travelers can rest their bodies and refresh their souls.
- “Cleanliness & friendliness” is our motto! Helping you feel at home is our Passion!
- Low Season Special: Dormbeds from 10 Euros!

Thursday, 30th of May is the annual free open air Summer Night Concert of the Vienna Philharmonics in Schönbrunn!
Starts at 9 pm.
(if the weather is bad it will be on Friday, 31st of May)
Landed at Hostel Ruthensteiner. It's quite lovely. Quite a switch from Le Méridien Vienna, but this is definitely more my speed. I recommend it if you're looking for a hostel in Vienna. Very clean, friendly, well-organized, outdoor patio, bike rentals, free lockers, wifi, etc.
"Thank you very much!! We are..." on Mary Ellen Gevelinger's post on Hostel Ruthensteiner's wall.
Our private garden and apartment were heavenly. This Hostel is clean, the staff is warm and helpful. We would stay here again.
Hostel Ruthensteiner Thank you very much!! We are glad you liked it at our hostel! :D Hope you will come again at some time!

Definitely the best hostel I've ever been to, every time I'm in Vienna I stay here --- a nicer, friendlier, more beautiful hostel you won't find :)) that garden is heaven!
