The Base is the budget choice of the 3 Wombats in Vienna. In exchange for the price the hostel is located further away from the main train station Westbahnhof (an 8min walk). You get a small free drink at the bar, as with all other Wombat hostels. My stay was affected by a few hiccups. First, there was some minor... More

A friend and I stayed for 3 nights. I would definitely recommend this hostel. The staff were friendly and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. The bar had decently priced drinks, they served snacks such as pizza and chilli con carne at the bar and the common area made our stay very sociable. Great price, good WiFi connection and an... More

It is very close to West train station and Mariahilferstrasse (most important shopping street in Vienna), but it is located in small and dark street, so my first impression was not so great.... But, soon I changed my mind because it was safe, clean and pleasant... The only flaw was that there was only one jack in 4 bed room... More

Stayed here for one night with a group of friends. Initial impression was not favorable since the hostel was located surprisingly far from the entrance to the train station (Westbahnhof). However when we arrived we were warmly greeted by the staff who were in general very helpful and spoke good English. We got a complimentary free drink voucher and city... More

Nice place to stay, legendary atmosphere, and right next to the U/S-bahn stations. Free drink at the bar for each reservation was a nice touch, and the bathrooms were kept cleaner than most places at these prices.

For young travellers, couldn't have asked for better than paying 10 Euros a night(for a group room), which included a towel, bed sheets, a bathroom WITH hairdryer, and room was cleaned every day! We stayed 4 nights, and it was only a ten minute walk from the tube station. The staff were super friendly and showed us very willingly on... More

Bed sheets were STAINED and really smelly. Wi-fi is really crappy, there is no signal at all, except in the lobby, but even there is slow. I disliked the fact that you need to leave your id card to get the second key for the room, I would rather pay extra than leave my id card. Lockers didn't work. Only... More

We stayed for two nights. As it was more or less off-season, The Base was not full, so they upgraded our room for free (i.e. we got a private bathroom). The Base is next to the Westbahnhof, and our window looked at the railways but we could sleep well. The room was okay, the staff was friendly, we found friendly... More

There are three Wombat's in Vienna and I wanted the one that's nearest the train/metro station. I thought The Base was it. Wrong! It took 15-20 minutes to walk from Wombat's Base to Westbahnhof (central train station). The street going to the hostel is also a bit dark and deserted at night. I was fine walking alone at night but... More
