realy nice place - we are 2nd time in this hostel


• Room with ensuite was sufficient and excellent value • Staff were super friendly (even offered me a Vegemite sandwich when they found out I was Australian!) • Security was great, and the lockers in the rooms had ample space • Breakfast was also great value with a lot of variety


Fantastic!!! I loved the wombats---just wish I could have stayed at the one by the Naschmrkt but overall not a bad walk from everything. About 30 minutes but easy to do!


Wombats lounge was ok place to stay at. But in the room it was terribly hot!!! As well as in the bar. Other than that, it was good. Staff was good and helpful. Breakfast was also very good, I think! Bread, eggs, cheese, ham, muesli, joughurt, coffee, tea...


Was a great time and great place to meet people. Wifi is bad though


This place place was like staying in a hospital, it was so boring. Most of the people who stayed there were not backpackers, but families with children. Plus, the Internet didn't work in the lobby, which where you would normally hang out and meet people. The bar was tucked away in the basement, which was hot and the bar tender was grumpy. I could go oN. By far the worst place I stayed on my entire trip through Europe. Sorry Wombat but true


Comments for hostel (not for a published Review) Reception and ground floor layout could be improved, reception area is too far forward, general effect official rather than welcoming. I'd move it away from the door over to the left, use the sunny area around entrance for sitting and relaxing, to promote a more welcoming atmosphere. Reception staff very nice - no reflection on them.


one of the best hostels I've stayed in for a while. great helpful staff!


A little bit away from the city centre if you're planning to walk.. But it's wombats, you won't regret..


Awesome Hostel with an amazing atmosphere, clean rooms and bathrooms, and friendly staff


This is a very large 'hostel' which caters for numerous groups including families and school groups as well as traditional backpackers. This makes it quite difficult to meet others especially that the WiFi in reception in terrible but super fast in the dorms?! Anyhow... super clean hostel, staff helpful. It is a little way from town (10mins) but the metro stop is just down the road.


The staffs are so nice and the location is near the train and subway station, very convenient.

Very friendly reception staff. Very cool bar downstairs. Private ensuite room very good apart from the dim lighting. Hired a bike for the day from the hostel- best way to see Vienna for the first time.


Convenient. Near train station. Room for 2 people is quite big. Several food shops and supermarkets near the hostel. Breakfast is cheap and there are many varieties.


Nice staff


It was a good hostel but could have been cleaner.


Very good - as always in Wombats :)


Best hostel yet. That is all!


Feels less like a hostel for travelers and more like a cheap hotel. Not a great place to meet other travelers. Also rhis hostel shouldn't advertise wifi because it hardly works and when it does you can barely even send a iMessage or whatsapp message.
