Travel Budgeting: Vienna

As I was expecting, Vienna turned out to be an expensive city to visit. Nonetheless it is incredibly beautiful and definitely worth a (short) stay.



City: Vienna

Travel Style: Budget

Currency: Euro

Daily Spend: 70€



Cost Breakdown

Accommodation: 3 nights = 65€

  • 15€ per night for a 10 bed dorm room at Best Location Hostel and 35€ for one night in a 6 bed dorm at Wombats City Hostel
    • Vienna is expensive when it comes to accommodation, and there are very few hostels. This was especially the case when I visited at Easter. If you are only staying one or two night and are on a tight budget I’d recommend Best Location but if you want something with atmosphere then go for Wombats

    Transport: 3 days = 17€ 

    • Flexibus from Budapest to the main bus station in Vienna: 15€
    • Metro to the centre: 2€
    • Walking around the city
    • Scooters are very popular in Vienna and Lime provides rentals of electronic scooters throughout the city which you can find and book through their app. You’ll see scooters sitting on the pavement all over the place ready to be hired!
    • Bus from Vienna to Bratislava: 1€ special introductory offer with Slovak Lines when you use their app- normally 5.5€ one way


    Food & Drink: 3 days = 120€ : 40€ / day

    • Breakfast: 10€ at Epos for a cappuccino and delicious scrambled eggs with feta, avo and cherry tomatoes
    • Lunch: 10€ at Max & Benito for a delicious and filling burrito and homemade ice tea
    • Dinner: 20€ for a lavender spritz, grilled chicken with veg and rice and delicious slice of chocolate cake at the NightMarket


    Activities:  8€

    • 8€ to go inside the National Library


    Total spent: 210€ / 3 nights = 70€ per day
