Nice hostel with great kitchen facilities. Wish I had known it was a contiki hostel,I would have thought twice about booking it. Really effected the atmosphere of the hostel.


Wifi in rooms was good, but only 2 power points in the room :(. Other than that all good

This is big-scale hostel, so more like a hotel. They provide a payable breakfast which is good. 10 mins walk to the metro and Rail station.


Lockers big enough for backpacks. Spacious room. Bit far too walk to the centre but easy enough on metro or trams. Everything seemed a bit old. But kept clean. Bar downstairs very busy and noisy but sound wasn't an issue elsewhere.


Staff is wonderful, you feel like you arriving at a friends house!


Good hostel, value for he money. Close to the city center, room and toilet are clean. Wifi works well. And free computer you can borrow. Good kitchen, you can cook as well. Good place to stay.


Nice place, really good atmosphere, fun bar and terrace. Just a little far from the subway station, and walking all that way with a heavy backpack may not be what we hope for after some hours in a train. But overall good place to be and have fun


The hostel was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms clean and easily accessible with the lift. The bar was spacious but the music was too loud it was difficult to hear the person next to you at points. The happy hour only knocked a euro of the usual price which could have been better. The kitchen and eating area were very spacious and could be used at almost any point of the day. The kitchen was under stocked plates and cutlery quickly ran out. Would stay again.


Everything is good overall. Definitely worth your money.


Big hostel that is very clean. There's a bar and kitchen but these common areas aren't that social. Location is a bit out of the way though. Takes about half an hour to walk to the ring/centre of Vienna. Wifi is horrendous and I probably wouldn't return because it was that terrible you couldn't even rely on it to check simple emails.


Standard wombats hostel. Good facilities, close to train station, free drink in the downstairs bar which is pretty nice. Hostel isn't city center but walkable and really close to metro.


It was a bit far from the city center but you can get there easily with transports and on foot if you enjoy walking.


A bit too noisy, but yeah, was OK !

Too long to check in. More staff at peak times perhaps? 4 bed rooms were great. Standard of what you'd expect. Great atmosphere at night and the breakfast is superb for only €3.90. Would advise it.


A good hostel, but not with the best location. There are three Wombats in Vienna, and this one is a little far from the centre. On the plus side: I enjoyed the bar very much! But I didn't enjoy the fact that there are no light in the common area outside and that you have to give a deposit of 20 euros for playing the guitar. Apart from that, I met cool people and had a good time. And the people in the bar sure were great fun, so creds to them!


Hostel has a nice atmosphere and is close to the train station. Not so close to town which was a down side. The security wasn't brilliant - we weren't asked for ID when we went to collect our room key after going out for the day. The bar area's quite cool. The rooms are clean and tidy.


A fantastic hostel which is really close to the westbahnhof and u-bahn. Only a 10 min u-bahn ride to the city center. The bar was nice and the room and bed was very comfortable. They provided locker key free of charge. Wi-Fi was a bit slow.


I honestly can't remember staying here - all these places just blend together after a while. I'm sure it was good though. I only care about WiFi in room and if I stayed here that means it worked. So yah....20 more Hostelworld points in the bank for this one. Cha-ching! Daddy needs a new totebag!


Had a few very very nice staff help us during the day, but the night staff were the full opposite. Many times we had to wait a good 15 minutes just for someone to come in from their smoke break so we could trade our key for our ID. We had a 4 person private, it was clean. Definitely a party place with a bar inside and a lot of young people. Overall not a bad place to stay, sort of a sketchy area but close to stuff and the metro.


Pretty good hostel. clean. Own lockers are free. Nice staff, cool bar. Beware of contiki tours.
