Arrival and search for a hostel in Vienna

We arrived with Ryanair at Bratislava-Vienna Airport in the afternoon half an hour in advance. These people, when they have the list of passengers ready, take the flight; I imagine that this avoids some kind of airport tax, which was great for us.


The bus will leave you at the subway station (U-bahn) Erdberg which is located three stops from the center through the U3 line.

As usual in this house, we had nothing prepared - no guide, no arranged hostel, no read blogs ... - so once we reached the subway we headed to the very heart of the city and left the subway in Stephansplaz. We walked around and after asking a couple of times we soon understood that the center of Vienna is dedicated to beauty, monuments, opera, five-star hotels and not walking for hours we would find a hostel at a reasonable price for the zone.

So we had to look for a cyber coffee, not without stopping before in a street bar where we tasted our first Bratsburg, and the first saber to the rhythm of Viennese opera shook us. It was not the sausage that barely cost us three euros but the half hour of internet that came out for a whopping 3.90 euros. We quickly scanned to find out where the cheapest hostels in Vienna and we find them in the Westpahnof area, four subway stops along the U3 downtown line.

The single ticket in Vienna leaves for 1.80 euros although if you want to take a risk I didn't see any reviewer in all my trips. The ticket is validated in small machines placed in the mouths of the subway. One validates it only if you want ... Yes, if you choose not to do the consequences if you get caught they will not be pleasant ... The subway is clean, well connected around the city and curiously inside the cars hang magazines in each compartment of four with the news and moves that are cooked in the city. The magazine is not tied and it is surprising to note that nobody took a gift at the end of the day.

Among the hostels we saw were the Westend City Hostel, Elizabeth Guesthouse, Meininger City Hotel and the one we finally chose, the Woombats City Hostel. All are around 18-20 euros for a bed in a shared room, have a bar, kitchen, young people and include sheets and towels in the price. Enough for the only night we would sleep in Vienna.
