Hostels in Vienna
The hostel accommodation in Vienna can be divided into the "official" youth hostels and the private, and probably slightly more expensive and trendy, backpackers' style of accommodation.
Budget accommodation is available in the centre of Vienna and in some pleasant spots on the outskirts but with good access to the city centre via public transport. Some of the youth hostels require membership of the IYHA (International Youth Hostel Association) but do not have any age limits.
You can check the individual hostels listed below and on the map at the bottom of the page or, if you already know when you are
