“Great location for a budget stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

For Asian travellers who are homesick.. fear not! There are numerous Asian restaurants or supermarkets located just around the hostel. (Looks like a Mini Chinatown to me.)

This hostel is one of the best I've stayed. It reminds me of college days even thou I haven't been to college at all! :) They provided cheap buffet breakfast at 3.75EUR with lots of varieties. Informative notes for day trips around Vienna as well as to Bratislava or other part of the cities etc.

The room is consider good for my standard. The only thing I don't really like about is the noise along the corridor when people talk as they walk passed. You could hear them. Anyway, not much of a big problem. The wifi is only located on the ground floor. For internet addicts, you may find it tough to stay in the room without any connection to the world.

Good things doesn't mean cheap. Cheap things doesn't mean good. This hostel is cheap and good! :)

Room Tip: If you like Attic room, you may request for 4th or 5th level during internet booking.

The Wombat's Naschmarkt has all the makings of a great hostel. The reception was friendly and knowledgeable. We tried out the 'one day in Vienna' whirlwind tour written up by one of the staff and had a great time.

There is plenty of common space and free wifi to sit and relax. Although it wasn't my hang out of choice, the bar seemed to always be rocking and the free drinks on arrival was a good draw in! If you're like me don't let that worry you though- despite the 'always rocking' factor, the sound proofing in the newly renovated building turned out to be pretty amazing as our room was right adjacent to the kitchen and we slept soundly.

From Google maps this newer Wombat's seemed to be a bit far from the other locations but in fact I'd say it is way more central than the others! It is easy walking distance to most of the big sites and the metro is right down the street. If you stay there covering a Saturday morning it is worth getting up for the huge market right outside the front door too.

To round it off, the breakfast was EXCELLENT in variety and value. Oh, and the rooms were great value too! Less than half the price of what we paid in Prague for similar room size and fit-out.

Only a couple of friendly suggestions for improvement: the kitchen is a bit small if you actually want to make a meal in there during meal time; the map we were given was comprehensive but referenced everything from the other Wombat locations (it would be great to have it tailored better to what is nearby).

Great new room, spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed and no-frills bathroom. All furniture seems to be from Ikea, which makes me wonder how long it will last.
Comprehensive buffet breakfast - thumbs up!

Wombats has definitely been the best hostel I have stayed in. Unlike other hostels, the rooms are huge, with heaps of space to lay out your bags etc. The bathrooms are very new and clean, and you can borrow hairdryers from reception (you pay a deposit but you get the deposit back). The location is also great, next to a train station and two supermarkets. There is also a flea market outside the door, which has great falafel stands. If you're in Vienna definitely stay here!

Reliable & get exactly what's promised. Modern (this one is new less than a year old) & across the road from the Naschmarkt (saturday's) which is a must-do if you're in Vienna on a Saturday. Rooms are clean (I had a private room), staff at reception couldn't be more helpful & after 23hrs flying, I was even offered use of the shower to freshen up before the 11am free walking tour, which was great to familiarise yourself with the surrounding area & main sights - for 2hrs.
I'd stay here again.

Just home from spending a ling weekend here in Wombats. It was my first time staying in a hostel and I honestly expected the worst! Wombats hostel is one of the best accommodations I've ever stayed in. It is spotless clean, secure-as key cards are required to access main doors on each bedroom corridor, very modern, hotel-style bedrooms with comfortable beds, powerful showers and roomy bathrooms. I can't wait to return here on my next visit.

We stayed 2 nights in a quadruple private room. The best hostel I've stayed in so far. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Great location (2-3 minutes away from train station).
