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... More

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... More

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... More

I had a lovely time there, the staff is very nice and they give you a free drink when you check in. The rooms are very clean and organize, but there's only two plugs in room of 8 people. Showers are nice and big. The hostel is near the metro line but you can walk to most parts of the... More

Very good price. Super close to the train station. They gave us a free drink ticket when we arrived and the bar was fun. Definitely more of a party hostel, people were loud pretty late in the night. Cute little terrace to sit outside and a nice kitchen to make your own food. We had a private bathroom in our... More

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
