The hostel has a good location, close to restaurants and public transportation. Wien Westbahnhof station is just a 10-minute walk away. The price is great and the staff is accommodating. This is a big hostel so it can get pretty busy at times. If you're looking for a social environment then this place is ideal. Overall, I can't say that... More

Had a good stay here after staying in several other wombats locations. Only complaint is that it was VERY hot and 1 fan when you have 4 people in the room does not help. Aircon is needed. Bar is great through :)

The windows in the rooms don't even open properly to circulate the hot air! There is not even air conditioning in... More

The staff wasnt good, when asked about free walking tour, they gave me a wrong location (spent some time walking arround to learn later that there is no free walking tours in Vienna), when asked for bars and clubs, they said the best place was their own bar (suspicious, right?). The towel was 10 euros for rental, The scale for... More

firstly the location of this hostel is out of the way, about a 5-10 minute walk to the train station and then a train to get into the city centre. The staff weren't too bad except one lady who had disgusting language which I found really unprofessional. The room was small,the bathroom didn't lock and wasn't super clean. The halls... More

The hostel is really good. It's clean, organized, the staff is friendly. The bar is also really nice. There's a lot a shot "combos" for a fair price. We just had a few problems with our room.. Just one plug for the entire room (6 beds) and the toilet gets quite messy after the shower(the shower's glass doors don't close... More

Stayed here for two nights recently and it was the best stay so far in Europe!! For anyone who likes to party, the bar goes off! Never have I experienced anything like it!! Although if that's not your thing don't be worried about noise, they have it well set up and the fun is contained to the bar area only!!... More

Recently stayed here for 2 nights and wish it could have been longer! The staff here were friendly, helpful, and up for a party! The manager is hilarious and the bar staff are champions! We intended to have a few drinks and then head elsewhere, but we had so much fun and got so rowdy that we never made it... More

We booked a 6 females dorm and got upgrade to 4 females dorm, which was a very good starter. The view from my room was not good, but who cares about the room when you can go explore the fascinating city. The room was tidy, the toilet was clean, everything was good enough for the price. The downside was that... More
