Hostelworld says:

If you want your trip to Vienna to be a little more on the lively side, Wombats is the place to be. It's a fantastic, social hostel with unbeatable entertainment most nights. The bar is the ideal place to shake off your anxieties and meet your fellow travellers, or simply to party with your friends. Although you have to pay, the food is excellent and will fill you up for the day's exploring. Wi-Fi is also free, so no need for internet cafes. It's a little way out from the city, but transport is great, so no worries there!

Property Information:

Congrats, you found backpackers paradise (cf. Lonely Planet) at Wombats The Base!
This is the first Wombats and was opened in 1999 by Sascha and Marcus as a hostel by travellers for travellers.

We offer you great fun at our WomBar with daily HappyHours and special offers.
Tank yourself for the day at our all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet with a huge variety for only Euro 3,90,-.

Explore the city on your own (get hot spots and secret recommendations from our awesome staff) or join our free walking tours (we are the only hostel offering this service!).

There are no limits if you want to share your cooking skills with others, you can use our brand new kitchen from 12:00 lunchtime until 1:00 am.

All of our rooms are equipped with bunk beds, free bed sheets and an ensuite bathroom.
We also offer free towels & free wifi as well as some common areas.

Enjoy the sunny weather while meeting new friends on our cosy sun terrace above the bar.

Arrival is possible 24hours every day and we do accept cash and credit card for payment (visa, mastercard and maestro; minimum charge: Euro 10,-; no extra fee for credit card payment!).

Said to be the first Wombats, the only 'old' part is the house itself as we renew our interior constantly.

So allow yourself a good time and visit us :)

    It was great, I was there for 7 nights. Everything was clean, the rooms were very warm and it was a great atmosphere. The kitchen was perfect and you could have free tea there! It was my firs time in a Hostel and I was really surprised by the good conditions!

    more an hotel than a hostel so I wouldn't recommend it for solo-travelers. moreover it was the basic things that the hostel lack that irritated me the most, especially the fact that there are no more than 2 wall plugs in dorms and that no soap in bathroom. one cannot ignore also the awfully loud noise in the nights. as far as i'm concerned I won't be returnning to any of the Wombats ever again
