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.

I had a Amazing time in the Ruthensteiner, as a volunteer you will be overwhelmed of fun and benefits you will have there. Nice dorm, bike, breakfast, dinner, a beer for free, laundry, etc
Our job is to make sure the guest have a great time in the hostel at help the receptionist and bartender to do a great job. In the work times always you are able to have a talk to a guest.
I left the hostel with a new skills, new friends and amazing time. I 100% recommend.

Hostel Ruthensteiner has surprised me so well that I feel that a part of me has stayed there or wants to stay. The best volunteering I've ever had with a lot of learning, fun all the time, respect among everyone and the friendliness that exists in every conversation. The work hours are very fair, the tasks are rewarding and gives us enough time to explore the city.
I recommend it to the best and enthusiastic travelers planning a volunteer time in Vienna :)
Thank you Valentina and the whole team for my brief and wonderful month, I hope to see you soon.

This experience was the best I've ever had at a hostel. It was great learning to cook various dishes for the guest and you don't need to go far to enjoy the city. Vienna is a jewel and this hostel is it's crown, they're perfect for one another.

I had such an amazing summer experience in this hostel as a volunteer. The hostel has an extremely friendly atmosphere and is always dynamic. The staff are nice and welcoming. I had some much fun. I felt like I am at home from the first day. The tasks are super easy. Just imagine that you are having fun while you are “working” and at the same time have opportunity to get to know new, interesting and nice people all around the world. I am so glad that I spend my time in this lovely hostel and to be a member of the Ruthensteiner Family.
