wombats CITY HOSTEL VIENNA "The Base"
Ranked #27 of 217 Specialty Lodging in Vienna
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Was there for 1 night at late October.
This hostel has good location. In case you're arrived to Vienna by bus and get off at Erdber, you need to get there by U-bahn (metro/subway). It takes 30 mins (11 stops and by foot).

Hos-tel a bit noisy. Atmosphere is nice. Receptionists are helpful. You get free welcome drink while check-in. Wi-Fi Internet connection available on the ground floor only.

Rooms are clean with share bathroom.

It's ok to stay for the night, or two.

I stayed at the Base on a Contiki tour around Europe. The Hostel was pretty good, rooms were small and were starting to get a little outdated but otherwise comfortable. The restaurant bar area was also small but there was a rooftop terrace as well (which I didn't see). The staff were friendly and helpful and the wifi was functioning. There was a laundry on the top floor which was handy but there were only 4 washers and 4 driers which created a queue of people waiting to get washing done. The Hostel is located in a back street which I wasnt 100% comfortable walking down at night but the main street complete with shops and restaurants was very close by. Good location in terms of getting into the main city to see the sights. Breakfast was average but met expectations for the tour. Noisy at night as most people didn't obey the noise curfew but that can't be helped!

Good hostel, close to the train station, staff are great, ensuite is always nice, and the laundry room is cheap. only downside is that the kitchen is not on site, but at the other wombats hostel down the road. the other 2 womabts hostels in vienna are nicer, but this is the cheaper option and good value for money

very clean and neat. Breakfast available at additional cost of 3.5-4 EUR. PC with Internet access at the lobby (not free).

Very cool bar inside the hostel. In summertime full packed with partying travelers from all over.
10 min. walk to closest Metro & Central Train Station (West Bahnhoff).

I really enjoyed my stay here. Great vibe, helpful staff, close to the metro and the erin station and the best hostel bar I've experienced yet! This place is kind of a party hostel, but even on the night I stayed in it wasn't that big of a problem.Staying here was a great experience.

Wombat's The Base is great. The rooms are standard hostel rooms, but very clean and have lockers and a private bathroom. Its a perfect hostel for backpackers, as there is a bar (Wombar..) downstairs which is really sociable and the staff are so much fun and so friendly. There is also wifi on the ground floor, would be great if they got it in the rooms too and the breakfast is good. It's also near to public transport. I will definitely return!

Prices are unbeatable in the wombat's hostels. It's not a Hilton, but you won't expect it choosing this type of accommodation.
The house is full of young people, the atmosphere is cool, and the breakfast included is better than I awaited.
Okay, the rooms would get two stars on an average hotel rating, but who cares? You get a bet with linen, a clean bathroom and a table with chairs.

Room Tip: You don't stay here to be astonished by the views :)
