The Best Hostels in Vienna
Vienna is one of the most amazing cities in Europe with it's beautiful architecture and rich history. Vienna is also renowned for it's buzzing nightlife. Below is a list of the best hostels in Vienna and some of them offer very good value starting from only €10 per night for a bed in a dorm room. As Vienna is one of the most popular backpacking destinations in Europe, there is a large selection of hostels. So choosing a hostel that meets all your needs can be difficult. Obviously hostels in the center of Vienna are going to be more expensive so my advice is to consider a hostel in a more local district.
All of the properties on this list are actual hostels that offer some form of dormitory accommodation. There are no hotels, guesthouses, or other types of accommodation on our list below of the best hostels in Vienna. Hostels have evolved greatly over the last 20 years and many are luxury hostels or to use the term "flashpacker" hostels. These usually have a very high standard of customer service and have a more contemporary design. The other main type of hostel on this list is the community lead or traditional hostel. These are usually very social and will normally have a bar or a communal area or both.
