Stayed here for two nights recently and it was the best stay so far in Europe!! For anyone who likes to party, the bar goes off! Never have I experienced anything like it!! Although if that's not your thing don't be worried about noise, they have it well set up and the fun is contained to the bar area only!!...

Recently stayed here for 2 nights and wish it could have been longer! The staff here were friendly, helpful, and up for a party! The manager is hilarious and the bar staff are champions! We intended to have a few drinks and then head elsewhere, but we had so much fun and got so rowdy that we never made it...

We booked a 6 females dorm and got upgrade to 4 females dorm, which was a very good starter. The view from my room was not good, but who cares about the room when you can go explore the fascinating city. The room was tidy, the toilet was clean, everything was good enough for the price. The downside was that...

Its definitely a good cost benefice hostel, staff is really nice and friendly, and breakfast is really good. this wombats is a bit inferior as the ones in munich and budapest, and you'll have difficults to charge your eletronics because there's very few spread in the walls. For the girls: there's no hairdryer in the rooms, not sure if they...

This was our first hostel experience ever. The Base was about a 10-15 minute walk from the Metro (the other Wombat is closer to the Metro and on the main street, but seemed much louder and more of a party scene). We have been living in Prague for a month and decided to take a week to travel, Vienna being...

Location is quite nice and it is not far from U Bahn. When we got there guy at the reception was quite busy and nervous, so we needed to ask few times about one thing, because we were not clear about it. Tomorrow there was a girl and she was awesome. :) Breakfast for 3.90€ is quite smart choice and...

Decent enough Hostel, clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. Only issues are there €3.90 breakfast is quite frankly crap. Most other hostels allow you unlimited tea and coffee gratis. Also, with most 'big' hostels the chance to get in to use the kitchen is near to an impossible task, unless you have a gun and are willing to...

Hey, thanks for your review! :) Actually we have unlimited coffee and tea included in the breakfast and the 3,90€ breakfast is an all you can eat buffet which includes different kinds of bread, ham, cheese, fruits, vegetables, nutella, butter, jam, orange juice, salami, muesli and a lot of more things that I have forgotten. And in case you don't...

Great place close to Westbahnhof, a shopping mall, underground and tram connections. It's a bit out of town on foot, but food and services are definitely cheaper here than in the posh tourist-packed downtown areas. If you want a place to be the base for your trips out of town, this is the perfect low-budget option. It has a nice...

“Shared rooms are a great experience, but it's always a risk you take with random roommates. This was the one time I had a bad roommate experience, so I say take the risk and make new friends!”
