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

Stayed for 3 nights in Lounge and was quite happy with the place. Would defineitely recommend Wombats but might go for Naschmarket purely because of its better location (right in the ciy center) Liked - Good spacious rooms - Eat all you can breakfast was something which can not be missed - Bar and common area was large enough for...

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

Pretty reasonable hostel. Staff were friendly and the hostel is close to several train stations. Good common room/area downstairs which is good place to hang out after you checked out. Rooms and facilities were clean.

I got a single room on the fly when my travel plans were derailed (literally -- problem with the train from Austria to Germany!). I was able to find accommodations here in a pinch. Wombat's is terrific because the front desk is knowledge and hip to young travelers: They speak English and have terrific advice for restaurants and things to... More

This hostel does a lot of things right, without really standing out in any one way. Wombats provides a reliable and comfortable service with their locations, this one is no different. The immediate area that surrounds the hostel is nothing too special, but It's right by the train station and within walking distance to the sights.The bar downstairs is nice... More

I stayed here with 3 friends for 2 nights in a 6 bed mixed dorm. It was okay, but Vienna isn't really known for it's nightlife anyway so we didn't expect a big night. They have a hostel bar and they give you a free drink voucher on arrival which is great, but the bar isn't great and is quite... More

Well it is my second time here, my last time was at 2009. I took the double room with the privet WC and shower, it was very small room, it is hard to move in and the closet in the room had no shelfs in it. This is not what i remembered... The location is good, near the shopping area.... More
