Stayed here on contiki July 2012. I liked this place it had a cool bar and a London telephone box. Down the road were some nice resturants , rooms were nice and clean, two bunk beds in the room so sleeps 4 some of the others had bigger rooms with more beds. They had a laundry which was great

Location depends on what you need tho, I was in Vienna for a concert so location was great, since it was pretty much close to the Stadthalle. You have a bit walk to do to the metro station, but it wasn't really a problem for me. Staff was really kind. Rooms are clean, I don't know about shared bathrooms because we were in an ensuite with it's own. It's pretty cheap also (I payed around 12e per night if my memory is good).

Wombats Base was terrible. Far away from public transport. Behind hotel is a train track where you can hear train all day and night. WiFi works only in the lobby, and if you have to talk on skype, to bad, because the bar is right there, and music are loud. They had a group of old musicians in my floor, and for 2 days they woke up early around 6:30am, and they were talking very loud on the hallway. I share the bedroom with 2 girls and 1 guy from china, they were dirty and spacious. I couldn't use the bathroom in my room because they left dirty a few times, and the only extra bathroom was in the lobby with only one toilet and that's it. Staff are very helpful and polity, but I would never stay at this hostel again, maybe the other wombats in Vienna are better place.

Wombats - The Base are in a Ghetto place and very dangerous area!!!

Room Tip: Check very careful the area where you are staying.

I visited "Wombat's The Base" a few days ago and I was delighted! One night was enough to say it's great place to stay. Clean room, bathroom and bedclothes. There is a a hairdryer in the bathroom and lockers in the room. The Base is visited by people from around the world: we shared our room with girls from Australia and China who study in London :) The stuff is really friendly and helpfull and you get a voucher for free welcome-drink in womBar. I really recommend "eat how much you can" breakfast (3,70 euro) - everybody will find on the table something what he/she likes to eat :) And you can use WiFi in the Lobby.
Quite good localization - about 25 min. by foot to Schonbrunn Palace and near the subway :)

As usual these hostels are simple and for budget travelers this is no brainer !! Rooms are bit smaller and as expected given the price and value !! It's a bit of a trek from the train station if you are carrying a heavy back pack as there is one more close to the train station - staff is very friendly and the breakfast was very good for €3.50 !!
I am a big proponent of keeping it simple when staying as its more about the city and the people !!

We got a six person room for under $20 per person per night, which was a fantastic deal. Rooms were basic - lockers for everyone, bunk beds with linens provided (no free towels, though), and a private bathroom - but clean. Staff were helpful in answering our questions about the sights of Vienna, but were definitely outnumbered in terms of guests and so it took some waiting to get to talk to them. There is also a hostel bar with a pool table and drink specials all night long. It is very crowded, though, so you're lucky if you can score a table for your group.

The hostel is nice and clean with clean rooms, good beds and great shower.
Helpful (English speaking) staff and the breakfast buffet was elaborate and very nice.
We were a little unlucky with the other people in the room who woke us up in the middle of night and caused some awkwardness, but that's a risk you take in any hostel I guess.
The location was okay, not excellent, but once you get to know the transportation system it's easy to get around the city.
Overall excellent hostel and I recommend it to anyone who wants to travel to Vienna!
