Reviews for Backpackers

Tiphaine
The place is really close to a tram station which make it easy to arrive and go visiting. Corridors and bedrooms are clean and the price is pretty cheap. I was just a bit disapointed by the price of the breakfast that is quite expensive (7€).

Vienna – Student accommodation, hostels and coworking spaces in Vienna (Austria). Maps of Vienna, photos and reviews for each place in Vienna.

Welcome to Vienna

What’s that outside your dorm window? Chances are it’s a palace. It can feel like there's one on every street of Vienna. Once the cultural centre of Europe, Austria's capital boasts a large assortment of architectural riches, with recent centuries seeing the addition of everything from art nouveau classics to elegant coffee houses. Backpackers love it for its walkable centre, its undercurrents of experimental art and electronic music, and – of course – its great range of cheap hostels. While there isn’t quite a youth hostel on every street, there are still loads to choose from. Choose a city-centre hostel to explore the famous Innere Stadt, anchored by towering St Stephen’s Cathedral; or a downtown hostel to enjoy the elegant Leopoldstadt, bordered by the Danube and Danube Canal.Vienna is also full of affordable student accommodation located in close proximity to nightlife, shopping, and sightseeing, making it a great place to study. There are also more than 130,000 students in Vienna, so it would be easy to meet fellow students if you choose to study there. Vienna remains one of Europe's most vibrant cities, celebrating its cultural past while embracing a cutting-edge present.

Wander the city's parks

Vienna's parks are as ornate and pleasant as you could wish for. Get yourself out of your accommodation and explore a few. Try the Volksgarten for roses, the Stadtpark for monuments and the Burggarten for a stunning art nouveau greenhouse. [IMAGE_NEW_1]

Discover Cutting Edge Art at MUSA

Most museums in Vienna will drain your bank balance before you can say kunsthistoriches. So if you’re a backpacker, you’re better off at MUSA, a swanky modern art gallery that’s completely free. Check other museum websites for discount days. [IMAGE_NEW_1]

St Stephen's Cathedral

Once you’ve checked into your hostel, head here to start getting your bearings. Vienna's iconic cathedral is slap bang in the heart of the city. It was destroyed in World War II and rebuilt in just seven years, making one of Europe's most remarkable houses of worship even more incredible. [IMAGE_NEW_1]

KunstHaus Wien

If the opulence of Imperial Austria gets a bit much, try the wavy lines and bold colours of Friedensreich Hundertwasser's idiosyncratic gallery, a gathering point for artistic types with a more modern sensibility. Expect to bump into some fellow backpackers. [IMAGE_NEW_1]

Schönbrunn Palace

It's a short journey out of town, and is likely to be crowded once you are there, but the Habsburg's summer residence is so extravagant it’s impossible to miss. [IMAGE_NEW_1]

Innere Stadt (1st District)

It's here you'll find the Belvedere and Schwarzenberg Palaces, as well as the serene Stadtpark. There are some good cheap hostels just to the west in Favoriten. [IMAGE_NEW_1]

Döbling (19th District)
