Staying at the Hostel Ruthensteiner was my first volunteering experience and I couldn't have found a better place to do it! I met so many amazing people, I practiced all the languages I speak, the team at the hostel is amazing and I got to experience the best of what Vienna has to offer :)

Beautiful hostel! The place is just amazing, the team is easy-going and chill.
Despite the current situation and restrictions, they're trying to keep the usual good vibe and ambience* I'd totally recommend it! :)

The first thing I did when I left was to thank Valentina for giving me the privilege to work there, because that's what it is, a privilege. Not only has the hostel just recently and deservedly won the award of 'Most Popular Hostel in Vienna', but it is testament to the level of organisation and care that goes in to how the hostel is being managed. From all levels of staff, there is an inclusivity and friendliness that makes working there so memorable and pleasant, and the guests can see that too. Hostel Ruthensteiner was the first stop on my travels but I didn't want to leave. I loved it all.
