After my first impression was a bit dim and felt underground, turns out this hostel had a good atmosphere and was fine. Didn't expect to pay for guest computers.. especially because of the shocking quality of wi-fi I dont understand why there is a wifi guest complaints box and they dont do something more proactive about it. Staff fine, bar... More

This hostel is in a great location - an easy walk from the main train station and near a metro station to get to the city centre (only a few stops). The hostel itself is very sociable and has a good bar. We went here on our first night and quickly made friends, the staff were really friendly and were... More

Met this chain of hostels in Wien, and have then stayed a lot more there. Great quality at great price, and superb breakfast! Rooms are more spacious and comfortable than in other hostels. WC inside is a joy!

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
