Nice social areas with a very large and well equipped kitchen. Bar in basement is cool and far enough away from dorms it didn't disturb. You also get a free welcome drink :) Didn't have breakfast so can't comment. I think we were unlucky with our room. We were on the top floor which was very hot, 3 bunk beds... More

We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. We were in a private double with ensuite. The room was very very small, very hot and stuffy. Bathroom was clean however and good. Bed comfortable but pillows were awful. The room backed onto the main road so was very loud. You could pay for a breakfast which was standard. The hostel... More

Wombats Hostel is in a good location, it is in walking distance of Westbanhoff train station. It is also located beside two small supermarkets. Stayed in Wombats in July in a private room, the weather was extremely hot at the time and we grateful to find air con in the room. The room was clean and comfortable. Free drink at... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. There is virtually no hostel atmosphere here due to its size which is disappointing. Its right by the metro line though which was good. The downstairs bar was amazing (although a bit pricey)

Very good location to the train station. Free wifi, nice communal area, well equipped kitchen, helpful staff. Advice on where to visit and what to see, close to an underground stop Room spacious and light, but massive downfall to the hostel is the lack of plug sockets in the room. This proved difficult and meant we had an interrupted night... More

This is a Hostel that is right near the West Train Station (Westbanhoff) and very convenient to all sites. It is inexpensive and clean. It was noisy and because it has a bar in the basement tends to have a bit of a rowdy atmosphere. But the location is worth that in my opinion.

Big hostel with a nice enough lobby. Located near Westbahnhof, which is good for overnight travelers such as myself. Free drink at the bar, which was empty when I got there. Didn't really meet many people. Helpful front desk employees. Didn't have much personality. Didn't sleep well at all.

It's basically what you expect from a decent hostel. It was clean, staff were friendly, free drink at the bar when you arrive. Location pretty decent, right next to one of the major train stations and only a short underground ride into the centre of Vienna. It's also right next door to 2 little supermarkets (but be warned, these don't... More

Possibly been spoiled with other hostels but for all that there was nothing really wrong with Wombats it had no character. It's more like a motel. Upon arrival we were handed a map and Wifi code but no more, whereas other places bend over backwards to offer as much info as possible. You can always ask of course and the... More
