I had a really great time here. There's a large social area and busy bar. One free drink which is just a small beer or wine but cheap offers at the bar. They lay on events everyday and offer walking tours. The rooms were big with quite large lockers. The bed were clean although you had to make them yourself...

I cannot fault this hostel one bit! We stayed in a private double room and it was spotless clean with a private bathroom which is just what we needed after travelling all day. The staff were very helpful and there were leaflets all around about stuff to do in Vienna. The hostel is really close to the u-bahn so we...

Myself and 6 of my friends stayed here for a break in the middle of a cycling holiday through Europe. We wanted to stay in Vienna for two nights to recharge and see the sights and picked to stay at Wombats. This probably the best hostel I've stayed in, the staff were friendly at all times, they gave us access...

The hostel has a good location, close to restaurants and public transportation. Wien Westbahnhof station is just a 10-minute walk away. The price is great and the staff is accommodating. This is a big hostel so it can get pretty busy at times. If you're looking for a social environment then this place is ideal. Overall, I can't say that...

Had a good stay here after staying in several other wombats locations. Only complaint is that it was VERY hot and 1 fan when you have 4 people in the room does not help. Aircon is needed. Bar is great through :)

Never ever stay here in the summer!! No air conditioning in any of the rooms!! And 1 fan to do a 4bedroom dorm. It's 36 degrees Celcius and we have had to keep having cold showers to keep cool. The windows in the rooms don't even open properly to circulate the hot air! There is not even air conditioning in...

The staff wasnt good, when asked about free walking tour, they gave me a wrong location (spent some time walking arround to learn later that there is no free walking tours in Vienna), when asked for bars and clubs, they said the best place was their own bar (suspicious, right?). The towel was 10 euros for rental, The scale for...

firstly the location of this hostel is out of the way, about a 5-10 minute walk to the train station and then a train to get into the city centre. The staff weren't too bad except one lady who had disgusting language which I found really unprofessional. The room was small,the bathroom didn't lock and wasn't super clean. The halls...

The hostel is really good. It's clean, organized, the staff is friendly. The bar is also really nice. There's a lot a shot "combos" for a fair price. We just had a few problems with our room.. Just one plug for the entire room (6 beds) and the toilet gets quite messy after the shower(the shower's glass doors don't close...
