Great place to stay. We stayed in a 3 person private and besides the room being huge (with bunk beds easily 10 people could be fitted here) it was also extremely clean and had a fridge. Bathroom private and clean as well. Location close to Westbahnhof train station and 3 metro lines within walking distance. Located in quite side street...

I stayed here with my brother for just one night. It was hot and the room had to air conditioning but otherwise was OK (we had to open the windows and put up with some noise). It was a simple room with two beds, a desk, a fridge, a closet and a small bathroom. All of that was OK and...

Be aware - this hostel is actually a student dorm doubling as a hostel during the summer. As such, it is a bit shabby and worn. The carpet seems to have been there since the 1970s, and the beds, while clean, were also a bit worn down (you could feel it in the matress) and a little uncomfortable to be...

Hostelled here, the place is a uni halls of residence accomodation all year round except the summer. We were there for the season opening night in early July where we were given free drinks all night, we also met loads of locals and travellers alike in the hostel bar. The location is awesome and you should check out the Travel...

The location was great. It's about 5 minutes easy walk from the Westbahnhof train/metro station, which is great if you want to get around. It's about 3 minutes walk from Mariahilfer Strasse, the huge shopping street that runs all the way from the station to the pedestrianised old centre of Vienna. Unless you want to stay in the old centre,...

This hostel was fairly standard but was reasonable, clean and had a good location very close to Westbahnhof train/metro station. The room was very simple but was quiet and had a very good shower. The reception staff were friendly but not particularly personal - it would have been nice to have been given some information or recommendations. There was good...

I stayed at Red Carpet Hostel during my visit to Vienna in July 2010. It is a very nice, quiet, clean yet happening place to stay. Westbahnhof metro station is hardly 500 meters away. There is a bus stop 400-500 meters away from where to and fro buses are available for airport. The hostel staff is very courteous and cooperative....

The room was good enough and ensuite. Good location. Some of the staff were a bit sullen though - definitely not 'red carpet' stuff. Was dismayed to find smoking allowed in the bar with some customers and staff smoking. The 10pm 'curfew' for noise outside wasn't enforced either and the street out front was noisy until nearly midnight. There are...

The location is great, quiet and close to Westbahnhof which makes it very easy to get in Vienna with the subway (which is very efficient by the way). The rooms are comfortable (and there's a fridge in the room !), the kitchen is great (and there's a food store 10 mins away from the hostel), the staff is very friendly...

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theatre decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.

“There can be a lot of noise in the street outside the hostel in summer, so you should probably ask for a room at the back if you're sensitive to noise. You might want to avoid rooms with broken plumbing!”
