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.
It was a good hostel but could have been cleaner.
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.
The staff has explained to us that many houses in Austria have no air conditioning system since it is not really necessary, however, during our stay in Wombat, the room we stayed in was really hot and stuffy. Maybe other rooms are fine, but the location of our room made it warm as a greenhouse. Apart from this, everything was good, awesome staff and nice facilities.

I find it a bit anonyme, because it's quite big and so very well equipped in a way you don't need to talk to anyone if it's not necessary. I miss some more personality, but the hostel is big, what can you do? But I still had some good chats with the girl at the reception. The breakfast was super, the beds comfortable, the shower hot. What more can I wish for?

This hostel was nice and location was perfect - right next to the Westbahnhof train station and metro. I found it harder to meet people at this hostel though compared to other hostels I stayed at. The fact that these are a chain of hostels gives it more of a corporate hotel feel so the atmosphere was not as good as other hostels I've stayed at which had a more intimate atmosphere. The facilities were good and everything was clean, beds were comfy.
Very good, busy, city centre hostel. Great for meeting people and being close enough to explore the city
Where in the hostel on a monday. Meet alot of nice people in the bar. Only minus is the check-out time.
The room is a bit small for six people, but the wifi and the facilities are working well in the room, esp each bed contains a personal outlet, very good, but you need to put the mattress by yourself.
The wifi didn't work the entire time I was there. The system was inadequate with the amount of people. It was really good other then that.
Excellent location near train station. Very clean and safe. Staff friendly and helpful. Youthful, fun atmosphere. Would stay here again.
Nice atmosphere in the hostel. Decent bar in the basement! Clean and towels provided
Best hostel I've ever stayed. They know what they're doing and they're doing it right. Location, price, staff, cleanliness, attention to details, and they got them all right. They have 2 branches in Vienna so be sure not to go to the wrong branch. I did but it was my own fault so I'm not complaining. But they gave me a free drink to compensate me. How nice of them !! Would definitely come back !! Tour guide abit lacking though. Not enthusiast or interesting enough to attain interest.
