wombats CITY HOSTEL VIENNA "The Lounge"

This is a great little hostel. Just round the corner from the main train station Westbahnhof, there are also a large selection of shops, restaurants and street food vendors all along the same street. The rooms are spacious, clean and a real bonus of a having quality shower! The staff are really friendly and help me set up some great activities during my stay. The bar in the basement is a good venue to either start a night or to spend the night at, there is usually a theme and whilst I was there they had a decent live band.The breakfast is extra but well worth it, its an all you can eat buffet with a decent selection. I would defiantly stay here again.

To be honest i wouldn't recommend any other places. The hostel looks modern and the room is very clean. It is near the main train station (Westbahnhof) so it is very and convenient if you would like to catch a train to other cities such as Salzburg or Hallstatt. The price is good value, although it does not cover the breakfast. You have to pay a little extra if you want breakfast but the breakfast is GRAND and i think it worths the price paid and cheaper than eating outside. I would recommend this place.

Very good hostel! Great place to stay with very good location... close to public transportation (westbanhhof) main attractions, supermarkets and restaurants. A very good way to enjoy your staying at the Loung is walking around the nice area in your way to ringstrasse ;) that´s for me a very good oportunity to know Vienna very well.

Was a very nice hostel with good food & service, but the rooms weren't as nice as I would've hoped. They weren't the worst I've ever seen, but I didn't find them particularly comfortable either. With that said, was a very good hostel (although they made you pay extra for breakfast...).

Conveniently close to the U-Bahn station, this hostel stands out for both its cleanliness and excellent reception staff. The all-you-can-eat breakfast is great value with great quality. We are a mother and daughter travelling and we both felt at home because Wombats draws a good mix of the young and the young at heart from all walks of life. If we visit Vienna again, it would be Wombats again!

This place was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to be polite and helpful (calling the opera box office for me and then printing my tickets!). The rooms were clean and the common areas were open and inviting. Their bar in the basement was a great hang-out space with pool and big screen TVs. The breakfast buffet was a good deal too. Location was VERY convenient for travel and about a 15 minute walk into the center of the city. Definitely recommend!!

I've been at the Naschmarkt Wombats in June of 2012 and was so satisfied with the experience that I wanted to add my review of the other Vienna location, the Lounge where I've stayed after the opening in July 2006. The Mariahilferstrasse hostel is equally good as the one near the market. For the first 2 days I booked a private room for myself. The room was small but clean and sufficient since I was not spending much time in it. The private bathroom was small and basic. The room was very noisy, near the elevators and every time someone closed the door I could hear the slam. The next 2 days I stayed in a shared room for 4. There were 3 other girls. We got along well and even went sightseeing together. The lockers in the rooms are nice and big. I have not paid for the breakfast at this hostel. I just bought some food at the nearby supermarket. The 2 common refrigerators in the hostel kitchen are always overcrowded. I did not cook, but there were people who made their meals. Even if you travel alone, it is easy to meet people at the Wombats and chat with the staff.
