We were really Happy with this hostel. Rooms were spacious and were ensuite which is always a bonus when travelling. We hadn't booked breakfast but paid for it in the morning and it was good value for money.

Very friendly stuff. Helpful and kind. The room was accesible to a wheel chair user as we had asked. Only negative the rather narrow room entrance but that was not a problem. The room could be cleaner. We spotted some spider webs!!!! However we really enjoyed our staying and would go back again.

We had a private room that was a reasonable size didn't spend much time in the hotel but there was a great atmosphere in the lobby, they have two large luggage storage rooms that are locked. The shared kitchen was well used when we stayed there but we personally didn't use it. Pretty good area with some cheap restaurants near...

Booked for 1 night in Vienna and quality of the dorm was great and so was the bathroom and the shower. For such a massive hotel/hostel it seems unreasonable with just one washing machine and the extremely tiny kitchen. It's hard to see it as a good hostel when it seems to want to be a hotel. If you plan...

Well, one of the best that I've been to anyway, and that's well over 100 all over the world. When I walked in I was certain I was in the wrong place. For a "hostel", the lobby is massive and well-equipped with a bar, pool table, guest kitchen, plenty of seating, etc. The rooms are huge, clean, all en-suite with...

This hostel is a nice chain with fresh, clean, and modern rooms. Feels like a higher end place on upper levels. My room was very private with only 3 other very quiet guests. It was however a bit far from the station and Belvederegarten and a bit awkward as I had to share a queen size bed with a random...

I really liked the fascilities in this hotel (well, it is a hotel, although it has hostel dorms as well). Breakfast is a bit costy, but you might eat as much as you want! It is not quite near the city center (Stephansplatz, etc.), but metro is quite near.

We stayed at the Meininger after a friend's recommendation. The rooms were just the proper medium size. Very clean with no carpet (thanks god). Big minuses were the very poor breakfast and the noise outside the hotel from guests that were smoking and drinking late at night!

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
