Great hostel, only 10min walk from the train station. They give you sheets, towels, a welcome drink for free. Breakfast isn't included but you can buy it for €3.90 and they have a great selection. Great atmosphere in the bar too with cheap drinks and good music. Friendly staff, would definitely recommend.

If you can sleep like a rock or want to be able to go upstairs after a heavy night of drinking, then this is probably a fine choice for budget accommodation. If you're looking for a more cozy/intimate or low-key experience then this isn't the right place. This is a huge place so people are constantly coming and going at... More

Absolutely loved this hostel, hands down the nicest staff, cleanest room. 6 of us over 60 years of age stayed in one room, one bath, 6 bunks. One of the best experiences of our trip. Stayed up and played cards and laughed. Did not hear any late night partying. Would stay again.

Hostel located in terrible part of town. Is suited for group travellers who get dropped off at door by bus. Full of loud mouth rude Aussie bogans, who sit in the bar all night an slam doors and yell down the halls untill 3am. You won't get any sleep. The hostel is not located near anything useful and you end... More

This is not the friendliest hostel, it's trying to be fun and welcoming but the cold staff are the opposite. Bathrooms are all in the rooms which is actually a negative as there aren't any big bathrooms and it takes a whole for it to be free... Also can make the room smell. Not bad at all just not one...

As far as hostels go this hostel is pretty standard- we stayed in a dorm room which came equipped with in room lockers and en-suite. The showers were good and the beds were comfortable. It's in a great location for exploring Vienna and is close to good transport links. The kitchen is also very good, and with several greengrocers nearby... More

Good choice for the budget backpacker - cheap, with kitchen and a bar, however did not have the best location and lacked atmosphere due to it's large size. Friendly and helpful staff though. Would probably pick somewhere smaller for next time.

The Wombat's Base hostel in Vienna is a good choice for someone looking for a budget-friendly hostel. The location is a bit far from the train station, and is not in the best area. However, the staff was friendly there and the rooms were of pretty good size and very clean. The room also had its own on-suite bathroom which... More

We just stayed one night. It was all clean and tidy, however those dark painted walls gave it all such a gloomy feeling. We unfortuantly had a room right next to terrace - which was a bit noisy in the evening, but luckily at around 22h00 it was quite. Breakfast was alright
