Had a wonderful time in Vienna. This hostel is the best place to stay. Modern spacious rooms, awesome building, good internet. You can walk to West Bahnhof and only 4 stops on U6 to Meidling Banhhof. Excellent breakfast for 3.90 Euros. I would stay here again.

We stayed in a private room and really enjoyed it. There is a good bar to meet people and it was nice and quiet in our room so we could get some good sleep.

Expensive for what you get. Was very clean and tidy, decent for meeting people, reception was useful although they all looked rather grumpy

Unfortuntaly Checkin cant be done before 14.00pm but if you arrive earlier you can Leave your bag in à common locker room and head out.

Too big. I don't like factory hostels

The Hostel is great, the bar has great potential if the music was better. Overall there is a great amount of places to share with others, very comfortable. Very good breakfast!

Pretty much your average chain hostel: great, happy, helpful staff; bar and events; great breakfast; great mattress area to chill out. Only downside, 20 min walk to downtown....but if you stay here there's a lot more of Vienna you'll see. :) ... I would stay again.

Very Nice and helpful staff. Nice breakfast, eat all you can eat. Good lockers in rooms,. (Stayed at 6 bed female dorm). The shower and bathroom there was dirty, but because the other roomies were dirty, not because of the daily room cleaning, although the room itself was only cleaned half well but enough. Good location, 4 min from westbanhof and U-Bahn, and shoppingstreet. Popular bar in the cellar. Nice reseption- and seatingarea. The bed in the dorm was Nice and firm. Would stay there again.

This hostel didn't really do a lot with one another. But it totally worked for a bed and we had our own bathroom which was very clean. The breakfast was nothing special but worked great before the train. Good location to the train station but not much else in Vienna. You will need to get a metro pass as well. We found the bar on the last night which probably gets really fun - we were there on the earlier side. The bartenders were great and the staff was very helpful!

I was here for a couple of nights. The location was conveniently located by the train station, about a 20 minute walk from the city center, but near the a street filled shopping area. The staff was awesome, very cheerful and helpful. And the place was ok clean wise, it could of been a little better. There was definitely a good vibe with people coming in and out. I was a little skeptical at first but ended up enjoying my stay.

Wombats is a great hostel if you are travelling with a group of friends but if you're there to meet people I suggest you look elsewhere. The atmosphere was quite dull you walk into the lobby and people are mostly glued to their screens. It feels more like a cheap hotel than hostel. Facilities were quite good. Toilet facilities did feel a bit subpar and dated. Location is great if you just got off the train but a bit far from main attractions

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!!!
