This is my 5th night at this hotel/hostel. The start was with the check-in, the girl at the reception was very unwelcoming. I don't know if she's racist or that's her normal attitude. I haven't seen her smile in the past 5 days which was a bit irritating to be honest. The wi-fi is definitely the best thing about this...

Dear guest, first of all thank you for the honest comment. We are very sorry for the behaviour of one of our colleagues. We already talked to our colleague and she apologize for treating you bad. Nevertheless we hope you could enjoy Vienna and we still hope that one day you will visit us again, your MEININGER Team

Great place to stay if you are looking for a super clean, new hostel with comfy beds and pillows. Plenty of plugs available on the room. It's not on the city centre but a 20 min walk will take you there.

Stayed for 2 nights with children - allright for cheap accomodation. clean, modern though rather low-end equipment, not much comfortable sleep. Children rated the hotel better than us thanks to free (and working!) wi-fi. What we acknowledged is the equipped kitchen for free use.

I just recently stayed here and was extremely disappointed with one of the staff members specifically. There was a mistake with the reservation on our behalf and we were lucky to get a room; however she failed to mention that we would have to check out of our room for three of the five days we would be staying there....

Dear Amanda, Thank you for taking the time and sharing your feedback with the world. I'm sad, to read about your disappointment with our staff. I'm very sorry, that you had to ask yourself through the stay, and didn't get all information upon arrival. I know it's not helping a lot, but we made sure, that such thing won't happen...

We had a few days family stop there. Fast check in, spoken English , friendly staff. Location was great, parking was convenient, in a separate garage. Rooms are simple, nothing fancy but worth for the money. Bar was giving good snacks and drinks to keep us happy I the evening.

Booked two beds in the 6-bed room, because we had to stay only one night and wanted to save money, we checked-in one hour earlier which was also great.

Concrete finishes in rooms although stylish and comfortable. Outstanding value, 60 Euros for triple room. Breakfast great value at 6.9 Euros. 7 minute walk from ringstrasse u bahn and tram. Initial concerns over noisy youths unfounded - many young families and excellent soundproofing. Highly recommended.

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.
