I wanted to get a full experience so I crammed more entertainment in. The telephone however was way too expensive. I could call across the ocean cheaper than calling within the city.

Food is definitely more expensive, but housing is a real deal in Vienna. There is no other big city in Western Europe that has such low rent. Expect about 300-375 euros for a single bedroom in a good location. It really gives you a lot more to spend elsewhere.

The food was a little more expensive than at home. As i was in Austria, I liked to ring home now and again and so I of course spent more on phone calls than normal.

eating in a brauhaus can be very cheap! avoid touristic places and the bermuda triangle: it's nothing special. nightlife is not expensive (cheaper than in many european big cities)
