If you are on a budget and want to stay in a central area I recommend Wombats. The staff are friendly, the bar is fun (has foosball and pool), food and drink prices are cheap. It can get loud at night due to the party going on at the hostel bar and people getting back to their rooms drunk. But... More

We reserved a dormitory for six and first shock was that there was only one power outlet in the room, right next to the door. This was fixed with rentable extension cord, but it was still less than ideal. The wifi was free but it was really bad in the rooms during the time most people used it (mornings, evenings)... More

Vienna is awesome. This place isn't. The wifi is so terrible, even in the lobby during the day. It felt dark and dingy. I have stayed at wombats in other cities before, and I always had a nice time. The staff was really nice and helpful, but I just got the wrong vibe.

I stayed here for only one night with a couple friends. The hostel is huge and there are a lot of guests staying there. The hostel has a bar and a garden where guests can chill out, and the atmosphere there, was good. My 6 person room had a private bathroom and was clean. All in all a great stay.

Stayed for one night in Vienna and this hostel was really perfect! The rooms are tidy and have their own bathrooms and showers, but because of the heat outside it was pretty hot without proper air conditioning. The Wombar offers great, cheap breakfast and cheap drinks by night! Many cheap restaraunts and fast food places are located near the hostel,... More

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.
