Your fully furnished Single or Twin room combines the historic atmosphere of Vienna’s baroque city center with modern comforts. The thick walls of this former abbey radiate pleasant warmth in the wintertime, while they help maintain a refreshingly cool temperature during the summer. And when your windows are open, you’ll hear the tolling of the bells of St. Stephen’s drifting over softly on the breeze.
To help make sure that your free time remains your free time, room cleaning service, high-speed Internet access, electricity, heating, and use of the fitness room are included in your room fee.

An advantage of living right at the center of Vienna is that you can get everywhere very quickly. Most of the city’s universities are just a few stops away on public transportation. These include the University of Vienna along with its Altes AKH campus and its Faculty of Law, the Vienna University of Economics and Business, TU Wien, Vienna Medical University, the Academy of Fine Arts, and the University of Applied Arts. And right nearby is the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, while the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna is just a few meters away.
When you turn off Kärntnerstraße onto Johannesgasse, you leave Vienna’s most touristy area behind you and find yourself amidst the old city’s well-preserved charm. Curvy streets, small restaurants, and cute little shops. At the same time, you have the city’s rich cultural offerings – like the State Opera, the Hofburg, the Museumsquartier, the Albertina Museum, the Kunsthistorisches Museum, and the Naturhistorisches Museum, to name just a few – practically at your doorstep.
The public transit hub Wien Mitte provides access to regional rail service plus a direct connection to Vienna International Airport. And at the shopping center there, Wien Mitte – The Mall, you’ll find everything you need as well as supermarkets that stay open longer in the evening and are even open Sundays.
The Stadtpark and the Burggarten are popular places to sit out on the grass, to study, and to meet friends. And it’s an easy stroll to the Danube Canal: particularly during the summer months, this is a great place to enjoy cool drinks and dip your feet in the refreshing water.

ÖJAB-Haus Johannesgasse is quite an unusual student dorm for more reasons than just its exceptional location at the heart of Vienna. This heritage-protected building, built between 1734 and 1745 by Anton Erhard Martinelli, used to be an abbey of the Ursuline nuns. In 2013, it was completely renovated and adapted as a modern dormitory.
This student dorm also contains the Antonio-Vivaldi-Saal, one of Vienna’s most beautiful concert venues. A peaceful green inner courtyard flanked by a sunroom provides a quiet place of retreat right at the center of town. Further baroque-era architectural gems in this building are the puppet theater “Theatrum Sacrum”, a confessional chapel, and the preserved apothecary of the original baroque abbey.
In the summertime, this building is run as the Apart Hotel “myNext Johannesgasse Apartments”.

THE HOUSE MANAGER
We're available onsite to help you!
My name is Coco Akdedian. As my name would suggest, I have Armenian roots. I came to OJAB as a student in 1989 and moved into ÖJAB-Haus Niederösterreich 2 in Vienna – where I also volunteered until 1997. In 1998, I assumed management of ÖJAB-Haus Dr. Rudolf Kirchschläger. And since September 2018, I’ve been house manager at ÖJAB-Haus Johannesgasse. I’m now married and have one daughter and one son, and I like to spend my free time on football fields – if not playing for ÖJAB, then as a referee for the football league DSG-Diözesansportgemeinschaft or cheering on my son at his championship matches. My motto in life: live and let live!Coco Akdedian
