One of the best hostels I've ever stayed. Close to the main metro station and main street. Breakfast was for a reasonable price and all you could eat. The room was big and not crowded, good shower and comfortable bed.
Good key card security.. Although locker system was a little weird - being able to lock them with personal locks would have been easier. Reception were s helpful... Printed out bus timetables for me so I could get to mauthausen concentration camp as my day trip was cancelled. Washing facilities are great, wifi great, breakfast great. Would have been nice if they cleaned the rooms more than every. 3 days! Especially the bathroom. Bar is awesome!!!
Only stayed for one night but loved it! Great bar and common area to meet others, good if you're a solo traveller like me. Rooms were spacious and clean, but lockers were very tricky to work. My couldn't work mine so my valuables had to be out all night. Other than this, a great hostel and wish I could've stayed longer!
It had a hotel feel with families staying there. It is really big so hard to have any type of chill atmosphere. Really clean but too big.
Stayed in an all girls dorm and everyone was in bed around 10.30pm so if you are looking for a quiet place to sleep than this is perfect. Hostel advocates how it is rated highly for cleanliness however the room could have been a lot cleaner. Kitchen and social areas had fruit flys also. Ok hostel but definitely could be cleaner and have a bit more atmosphere.
it is really far from center. i didn't like the rooms. but it has a great bar though.
The best hostel i have visited. The lobby is awesome with sofas, computers, vending Machines and even a giant bed where u can take a nap if your waiting to check in. Staff was awesome. The lobby is awesome with sofas, computers, vending Machines and even a giant bed where u can take a nap if your waiting to check in. Staff was awesome. Great humor and very nice to us. We could use their guest shower while we waited to check in. Breakfast for like 3-4€ was also good.
Very close to train station, but horrible area at night. Went out to dinner one night and walked 2 blocks to go back and was offered drugs 3 times.. Other than that it's great hostel. Very friendly staff.
I like Wombats City Hostel - The Lounge in Vienna. I and my wife went to Vienna for honey moon. We were tired because of the 14 hrs long flight. We took the bus to Westbahnhof after we get off the plant. The Lounge was very easy to find. This made us a quick check-in and also helped us take a nice shower to wake up our tired body. The Lounge is also very closed to U-bahn. The transportation is really convenient if you choose Wombats The Lounge.

Wombats is run by very nice and helpful staff. Their Vienna location doesn't have all that much atmosphere other than staying... At least compared to the Budapest spot that's pretty awesome.
Great staff and awesome couch/lounge area! Each dorm had their own private bathroom, which provides more privacy but at the same time gave a more industrial and hotel-y feel, compared to a cosy hostel. You can still meet plenty of people at the WomBar though, and you get a free small beer. The kitchen is a bit small for a hostel with so many travelers, but the buffet breakfast is pretty good. The location is a bit far from the centre, but the metro station is just a 2 min walk.
We had an ensuite double private room which was clean and had a huge bathroom. The facilities were great and staff were super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a great start to the day and worth the 3.90 Euros (really helpful to have in the morning). Having the bar downstairs (was also great to have and free pool is always a bonus! The location was really good - 1 minute walk (or less) from the nearest tube which linked you to everywhere.
A little far out from the city centre, however it was right next to the train station.
Great hostel. Good vibe around the place. As a solo traveller I met lots of people here. The place is large enough that you can party and be loud with the crowd at the bar or find a quiet area (awesome cushion lounge) to chill in peace. Location next to main train station and a supermarket is good. You will chew through the metro tickets however as most of the main attractions are about 3-4km away. Cool reception staff too.
Great one night stay. Everything was as expected, great wifi and common space chargers. Lockers were large with Ensuite bathroom. Some if the dudes in the room smelled pretty bad and the room is quite small, but not the hostels fault. I was in a 4 make only dorm. Maybe woulda chose mixed or maybe even 6 for a larger room / more ventilation. Close to westbanhof.
Located right next to the station in Vienna, so great location for Interrail or Eurrail pass holders - however it is a little further from the centre than other Viennese hostels. However, it has a great bar with pool tables - great for meeting fellow travellers. The hostel is also secure, reasonably quiet, clean and tidy - I would stay here again.
Great location by the train station, clean, nice staff. Had a good stay!
