Such a great hostel with an amazing atmosphere and very nice staff. Not even 2 minute walk from train and underground station and a grocery store literally next door. Highly recommend this hostel. There's also a bar downstairs, which is always a plus!

This hostel wan't anything special but if you are just looking for a place to sleep it is a great choice. It was a little shabby but just in a dated way and the WiFi was horrible (there were times when the people at the front desk couldn't pull stuff up). However, the rooms and lobby were clean, the beds comfortable and as long as you don't get a roomie who snores, its a quite environment. The staff was also super friendly and helpful! They had some great recommendations of things in the area.

This hostel is great but the one thing it has going against it is that the beds and comforters are disgusting I took two showers one at night and one in the morning

Hey, thanx for your feedback! We're trying our best to keep beds, comforters, pillows etc clean as this is superimportant. Though when it still happens that you find your bed too dirty, please next time tell reception as we than can change it and you don't have to take two showers (of course you CAN, but don't have to ;) )! We're very sorry that you had a bad experience and hope that you still had a nice trip :)! See you Kerstin

Great with breakfast option, nice with lots of common rooms, bar, pool table and all. VERY friendly and service minded staff! It was very good with a private bathroom for the dorm, but It would've been nice to have a toilet in the corridor too, since if someone was showering, no one could go to the loo...but that's just a parenthesis :)

Nice place to stay close to Westbahnhof, although the closer to station, it can be a bit doggy. Helpful and nice staff (good looking Austrian guys :P). Room was clean with ensuite bathroom, lockers, well organised. Excellent WiFi. Good value for money.

I stayed with Wombats for one night before catching a train the next afternoon, it was a nice place to keep my stuff and get some rest. My roommates were a bit rowdy but otherwise I got a goodnights sleep and that's really all that matters. Amazing location if you're catching a train out of Westbahnhof.

Loved staying here, great staff, clean rooms, easy walk from busses and u bahn, good safe locker storage and well equipped kitchen....the bar is a bit dark and dank but really that's a small point.

Probably the best place to stay in Vienna. The westbanhof and the u-bahn station are at 5 minutes walk. There are also supermarkets and everything you need around the hostel. The city center (the ring) is very close by metro or tram. The room are spacious with comfortable beds (I stayed in a 6 bed dorm for woman), a clean bathroom and big lockers. There are a spacious kitchen, a restaurant room (with breakfast) and a bar. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Youthful atmosphere. Rooms are ok, very basic. Breakfast is excellent and offered at the time for 3,90 : juice, coffee, vegetables, bread, cereals, fruits etc.euros. Kitchen where you can cook or store your food in fridge. Bar down stairs where you get a free welcome drink. The noice from the bar cannot be heard to rooms, we had room on floor 1. Very good budget hotel.

I am totally satisfied about the hostel. However, during my journey, I can not open the windows of the room. If you have the window attached protective equipment, it seems to be better.

Hey :) Thanx for your feedback! Usually it shouldn't be a problem to open the windows in the rooms - they're not locked! I know though that austrian windows are a little difficult to open for foreigners as they're a little different;) Next time please ask reception and they'll be happy to help you:) See you next time, Kerstin

Great location, that is really main thing I look for when hosteling. Rooms were normal, pretty comfy bed, normal bathroom in the room, really nice that there are lockers in the rooms that you can use w out any extra fees. If you need a towel you can ask for it as well at the reception. Great friendly staff and modern design, plus great wi- fi throughout.

Great hostel. Located < 5 min walking from the train station. The staff is very friendly in providing insight about the city. In the 4 dorm room, there is an attached shower. I wish the staff organized more events to get to know other occupants of the hostel. However, I was only there for 1 night so maybe they did on other days of the week? Overall, a very great hostel!
