The bar lounge was really cool, and the rooms were nice. Shopping is just down the street and the city is 20 minutes walking, very nice


Hostel is in a decent location. Kind of far from the its centre but still walkable. The breakfast is good and at a fair price. Great way fuel up for a long day of walking! Dorm are clean Nd spacious and the secure lockers are big enough for most packs.


Good location right next to the train station. Clean spacious room and bathroom.


Was quite expensive and had to make our own beds and take our sheets off.. We got there at 2 and our beds weren't made yet either. The location is close to the station but a long long walk to the main buzzing area - also wifi doesn't work!


The hostel is really convenient for travelers to live and the staff there are kind.

Not that central, but close to the underground. Rooms are of good size, and big windows along with fans keeps the temperature acceptable. Breakfast is really good, and the hostel bar is really cheap, and a great place for meeting people. Internet was a bit unstable, but you are so busy having fun with your new friends so it don't matter. Erika in the reception is really welcoming and just so adorable (and really hot). Fell in love with both her and Vienna. -Petter


Stayed in Vienna for 2 nights to relax in between traveling. This hostel was all I needed and more! Great facilities, loved the bar/dining areas. Lots of opportunity to meet new people.


Very nice hostel. Staff is very friendly and ready to help when needed. Rooms are a good size. Comfy beds.


Facilities in the hostel were good, but most washing machines were broken so we had to wait until very late at night to get a turn. Breakfast is also expensive for what you get. I also found a lot of the staff unfriendly and unhelpful.


Helpful staff, clean rooms and a nice atmosphere


Great vibes!


Large dorm, staff was very friendly and we even got a free drink at the cozy bar downstairs. Location is great (next to the big train station Westbahnhof and only a few subway stops from Stephansdom), many extra services offered by the hostel. The atmosphere is great, definitive recommendation!


Never caught the name of the girl at the front desk but she was very enthusiastic no matter how many times I had to come back to reception and very helpful :)


I great hostel, room was basic but great value for money! The bar downstairs is good, the free drink voucher on arrival was a nice touch. I would definitely stay in a Wombats hostel again.

Pros :Big hostel. Friendly staff. Big dining area. Nice bar....n one free drinks too, so lovely! Cheap grocery shop nearby, very convenient! Cons: Too warm in the room....sweating all the time. But it's July. Extremely warm everywhere in Vienna.


Staff bent over backwards to help. Uniformly helpful


Chill Hostel to Relax!


The hostel was excellent. There was a bar for those who wants fun, but there was also silence for those who wanted to be calm. I saw many families there and also many young people. It is about 20 minutes walking to the historical center...could be close, but it was good for the price we paid and it was excellent in all others points.


For a Wombats this was ok. The bar is really a small lounge down in the basement next to the laundry room. Closed really early : ( Building faced towards the sun and didn't have air conditioning, even with the shades closed, I felt like I was in a green house!


Yet another great wombats hostel. The bar is in the cellar which is cool but the atmosphere was pretty boring.
