As I have said I liked my stay very much!!! If you come from CZ or SK, there are cheap bus connections, it's easy to get there. There are not many internationals, only about 20-30 but also from countries like Croatia, Romania... nice people:-) Ausrians are also very nice, bit you will have to make the first step to get closer.

STUDENT LIFE    
Personal social experience
Activities
KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Activities, Nightlife, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
The night life is not very intensive but Eisenstadt is a small town so do not await too much. We partied a lot in the "Partyraum" in the cellar of the dormitory. Mendez and Cebu are nice places too. The best pizzeria is near the castle - Pizzaboy. Do not miss Fasching-Dienstag, Stadtfest and Sommerfest, if you go there in the spring semester.

Language difficulties
Social

I coped pretty well.

It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: German
Was learning German a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my German
How much did you improve your German?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
I had no problems with communiation - everybody spoke either German or English very well. I was fluent in German also before I went there, so I wanted to learn 'Wirtshcaftsdeutsch' (Business German) and I have learnt a lot about the Austrian slang too. I understand that a bit now, but still much to learn;-)

Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Other
Other sources of funding:
Family
Work opportunities:
It was not legal for me to work
Personal spending habits:
Because in the Czech Republic, the country of my home uni, the prices of food and accomodation are lower than in Austria. I have spent less on telephone because I used almost only skype and a pre-paid card.
Food, Travel, Overall, Housing: was more expensive than at home.
Nightlife: was the same price as at home.
Telephone: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
I was really surprised that trains and busses were so expensive. It is better to have your own car with you if you have one. For example, we made a trip to Graz, 5 people by car - it was only 10 euros per person. By train it would have been 65 euros...
