Location is very convenient, super close to westbahnhof and a nice walk down the main shopping street to the museums and other points of interest. There are a bunch of supermarkets very close by as well as restaurants. Staff could have been friendlier, however they were very helpful when I needed assistance. The 6 bed dorm was spacious, though having... More

It is a good and clean hostel overall. Friendly staffs are ready to provide you more information about Vienna. What arousing me a lot is that It is only short distance to city center and very close to the metro station (forgot the station's name but it's after the Karsplatz's). For a single traveller, just hope having good roommates and... More

Stayed here with my topdeck tour last October. Great location and great hostel. Enjoyed the bar in the hostel basement. The location was great if you are into shopping, as its on the main shopping street. Also some of the best schnitzel haus's are just down the street from this hostel.

This was one of the top hostels I've stayed at throughout Europe. I traveled with a friend and we stayed in a two bedroom private suite. The prices were very reasonable and the room had its own bathroom, which is very unusual. The location is about a 2 minute walk to a subway entrance and the public transportation is easy... More

Wombats is fine - it is clean, in a decent location to travel into Vienna and the rooms are okay. My major issue was the lack of backpacker vibe and slightly cold staff here. It feels like you're inconveniencing them when you ask a question or need help. I also think the rooms are a bit overpriced for what they... More

Good location as Vienna is big city and it would be impossible to be close to all the sights and attractions. Close to shopping street with bars and restaurants and the main train station/underground station. Very easy to get around from there. Actual hostel was clean. No air conditioning only a fan and our room was very hot but you... More

The now well-known Wombats hostels are rightly well-known; our stay at the Vienna branch was what I expected from a hostel - well-run, comfortable and good value for money. The place is clearly very popular among travellers, reflected in the buzzing reception area (there are games and social events taking place all the time) and the number of rooms available,... More

The 8 bed dorm has an ensuite with electric lockers for each person in the room. It was clean and all we needed for our stay. The hostel is very close to to metro/tram stops which make it easy to see the city. The best bit/biggest surprise of the stay was the bar downstairs. We were amazed at what they... More

Good Location, exit from train station, cross the road, walk not over 200 meters. Staff're very nice, kind and funny. Many restaurants, minimart all around the hotel. The room is comfortable but lighting in bathroom is not bright enough.

A clean hostel in a decent location. Rooms are cleaned daily. Not the best crowd or atmosphere. Staff are okay, nothing special in terms of recommendations/hostel events. Sheets come wrapped in plastic. You have to make your own bed. Location is about 40 minutes from the main city centre; 30 minutes from the nashmarket. Large lockers with a digital locking... More
