A good clean bed, great breakfast buffet, proximity to attractions and price. This hostel is all as mentioned. It would appeal to a family, seasoned traveller and senior. I liked the quirky atmosphere theme which wasn't over done. I didn't like the step into the showers (bumped my toes)

The Meininger Hotel is a small place in one of the quieter areas of Vienna, with direct access to the metro of the city, the next station being about 100m from the hostel.
Although it is not located in the centre of the city, the hotel has a very practical position, as there are many restaurants and cafés in the neighborhood, as well as a supermarket, clothes shops and other commerces. The train station is quite easy to reach, as you only have to walk down one street to get there.
The rooms are clean and spacious, but we travelled in a group, so we had a dormitory. Therefore, I recommend this Hotel for travelers travelling in a group, or with a big party. Solo travelers will have a hard time enjoying this place, as it is quite noisy, too.
On the other hand, the staff was really friendly and helpful, and the bar of the hotel, is open until the morning if you wish to drink something in the night.
You can eat breakfast at the place, which we did, but it doesn't have a lot of different things to eat, although it is enough for uncomplicated eaters.

Again, the place is really comfortable and practical, as well as reasonably cheap, but it suits more the needs of a travelling group, opposed to the Solo traveller.

I staied there 5 nights with my 3 year old son and we had a good time. The rooms and the house are clean and modern. There is all you need. By foot you can reach the next tube in a few minutes. Nearby the hotel, on beneath the danube there are a lot of outdoor restaurants with a good cuisine.

The price ist very reasonable for vienna. One thing you maybe should know: in the time of our stay there where many schoolgroups living there, at breakfast time this caused some havy load on the buffet.

We were really impressed with this hostel - it actually felt more like a hotel, just where you happen to share your room with other travellers.

It's on a very quiet street which is not far from town (and very close to the Metro) - it's not very near any of the main train stations if you are arriving by train.

Can't comment of breakfast or any other food, but the bar area was very pleasant and reasonably priced.

The customer kitchen was practical and clean so cooking for yourself was easy. However, it was a bit spoilt by having the laundry machines in the kitchen as well, which were very noisy and increased the congestion of people in there.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, a fantastic stay!

It's advertised as a hostel but it is much more like a low budget hotel, with some rooms private and others dorms. There were many school groups staying there which was definitely not ideal for backpackers. It is not very close to the city centre and there are virtually no restaurants nearby so be prepared to walk a lot or take public transit/city bikes. Staff are not very helpful, I had some clothing taken from my room (when my bed was mistakenly given to someone else) and they were unable to provide any assistance or explanation at all. Wifi was pretty good.
