Right next to the Westbahnhof, a great location. Typical Wombats hostel - great bar, nice rooms with generously sized lockers, clean restrooms, good breakfast but not for free. Excellent common areas, especially one with a bunch of cushions to lie on.
This hostel is perfect (although my rating says different). I rated it the lowest on everything because there is no special category "Internet". So the Internet is just abysmal, stops working every 20min and some sites never open. Couldn't reach the management and reception says that this is just how it is. I stayed here 6 months ago and it was the same. Reception even jokes that IT company that covers this is very bad. I booked for 9 days thinking that surely the internet will work, but no.
My bag was unzipped and looked through by someone while I left it in the storage room for the day. Fantastic hostel other than that. Not sure if I would come back though because I wouldn't feel as secure or safe there.
amazing atmosphere, friendship staff

Good hostel, no issues with anything apart from the wifi.
Perfect location just across the street from train station and few minutes away from city center. Has amazing bar and 2€ Beers at happy hour, perfect place to meet people, not only travelers. Beds were very comfy with free linen, free lockers only mine didn't work. Staff were great helping with directions or offering a tour. Definately would go back again!!
I think will be no big problem if towels being included in the direct service.
Most of the staff are really great, Micheal is very kind. Clean and near to a metro station. Only tourist place nearby is the palace. Any other you should take transportation. I acctualy didn't like the location.
Good facilities, but no real social atmosphere; kind of expected with a large chain hostel though. Loved the cheap breakfast, location was convenient (2 minutes walk from metro), and staff were friendly. Some roommates suspected cleaning staff of stealing personal belongings. However, there are lockers in the rooms for additional security.
Groups of students treated the hallway outside my private room as a party hall. The hostel gave out too few keycards for these groups, and late into the night and early in the morning these people banged on the security door, because they didn't have keycards. The woman at the desk talked to the group and assured me the problem was taken care of because the students were nice to her when she 'reprimanded' them. Later, when the problem persisted, I was told there was nothing she could do. LOL
Amazing people with convenient traffic and the staff are very helpful and kind!

Can't recommend highly enough. We came to stay here after having stayed twice before at the Wombats in Berlin (and having loved it!) and it didn't disappoint. Very similar to the Berlin Wombats, extremely clean, en-suite facilities which you don't often get with hostels, and value for money is amazing. But I think that the best thing about this hostel was probably the staff - friendly, relaxed and incredibly helpful. If you need any tips for nights out ask them! LOVE Wombats!!!!

Very good hostel- good dorm sizes, clean, nice staff, good location BUT I stayed in Wombats Berlin too and they both have the same problem- lack of atmosphere and socialising- maybe they need some sort of activities to bring people together in the big bar downstairs. Thankfully I knew some people in Vienna because it would have been very hard to meet people here as a solo traveler.
Was only there one night but good atmosphere decent location and facilities. Great wifi. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay there again.
Great staff and excellent location, very good breakfast, they charge for it, but well worth it. Free Wi fi, over all excellent, the only issue I had with the Hostel was, they allow people to check in any time, I has someone check-in at 1 in the night and they would not turn the main light off in the dorm, this is 1 AM in the night.
It was really nice to stay here. There is a good atmosphere! I would go back.
Staff were great and very friendly. Wombats have consistently impressed me in each place I have stayed. Close to main stations, decent bed, clean with some actual space in the rooms. Def my first check for future cities I am staying in. Thanks for making my trip more comfortable.
love Wombats! as a solo traveller having the bar is a great way to meet people the place is in an awesome location, near the train and pretty much everything else too! it's super safe and clean. worth every Euro. would definitely recommend and return
Haven't stayed in many hostels during my travels, but this one is really good. Great Location, free wifi, spacious room( i stayed in 4 bed mixed dorm), helpful staff & cheap beer. Highly recommended if you ever come to Vienna.
This hostel is really nice, the rooms are big and clean, the breakfast is great and the staff is quite nice, although not so helpful when it's about sightseeing recommendations, but that's maybe because the one I asked for information wasn't from Austria, but from Spain. The atmosphere wasn't the best, I wouldn't recommend it for a solo traveller, but perhaps that depends on the time of the year you're traveling to Vienna.
