It was nice and of good value, but the atmosphere of the hostel was a little lack-luster. Maybe more group activities or ways to be more social in the hostel?

Fantastic hostel. Loved the staff, they make you feel at home. Complimentary drinks at the bar. Great breakfast for a very nominal fee. And an excellent kitchen and 24/7 free pasta at your disposal. Loved this place.

Nothing wrong with the hostel, just not really my kind. To big i guess. Center is walkable, but not close.

Has everything you need in a hostel. The location isn't great, but that is reflected in the price. Easy walk to metro to connect you where u need to go. Bathrooms, kitchen common areas are very clean. The wifi I connection is poor.

First: go to vienna. Stay as long as you can. It's the greatest. Wombats the base is a decent hostel (I stayed 3 bed dorm; with 2 people it was tight space...). Location is the worst of all three wombats. Stay at the naschmarkt (5 minute walk to city center) or lounge (right next to main train). The base is about a 15 minute walk just to the train to get downtown. Plus, that walk is down a couple side streets, as a guy alone I felt fine. Staff was OUTSTANDING though.

The internet was very unstable and slow in the rooms.

Overall a great experience for what I paid. With the hostel being located in between the main part of Vienna and Schönbrunn Palace you can easily make do without taking the metro. The staff could have been friendlier at times and the area around could be a little sketch late at night. The rooms and bathrooms were clean though which is always a plus!

Great Hostel! every thing was very clean and tidy. The breakfast was very good and had an excellent value for money. the Staff was always very helpful and nice. We could leave our stuff in the locker room for free when we left, which was great, but nobody asked about our hostel-ID for that, so its maybe possible to make it a bit saver in the future. It was a little bit noisy because of the trains at the nearby station but the people in the hostel were very quiet at night which was nice.

Great hostel, within walking distance to the Westbahnhof and the rest of Vienna, also within walking distance to the Schonbrunn Palace (a MUST for all visitors); although, I will say that due to the fact that I got food poisoning the week before coming to Vienna, having to walk 5-10 minutes from the station, although great normally, didn't feel so good for me.

The service is excellent! But we didn't find the hair dryer in the room~ It's better to put a hair dryer or a sign to show where it is in the room. Thanks a lot!

A little far from the center of Vienna but otherwise I had a pleasant stay here. The maps they provided at the hostel were not very useful/ had no main attractions marked on them but the bar provided a fun atmosphere to meet other travelers.

Well-managed, efficient, clean, bit of a factory feel. Good for bar and smoking.

The hostel gives everyone on bar voucher to go to the bar which encourages everyone to visit it. This was a great and easy way to meet people in the hostel.

One of the best hostels I have been to. Clean rooms, sheets, towels and a nice atmosphere. The only issue was that they closed the terrace at 10pm which according to us was a bit too early. Apart from that its an awesome place to stay while on a trip to Vienna. The hostel staff is super friendly and helpful

The bed light on my bed was out of function which should be checked regularly.
