We started staying at K&T Boardinghouse almost 20 years ago, as that is where Rick Steve's stayed. They moved into a new location closeby, and the rooms are huge. A metro entrance is just 50 feet across the street and it is just 1 stop or 5 minutes into The Ring. The neighborhood is a big pedestrian mall, and restaurants are decent. A double is 79 Euros which makes them a strong value. KTBoardinghouse.AT

I would not choose to stay near Gasometer as it is neither central nor attractive. Gasometer is on the U3 subway line, so very easy to reach from anywhere in the city. Stay in the first district, near to sights.

We recently stayed at the K&T Boarding house and found it convenient and comfortable. We liked the fact that it was NOT in the main tourist section which was so crowded all the time.

Loved K&T when it was in the old location up 97 steps -- great people, and MUCH easier to get to in the new location!
