First time I've stayed in a Wombats hostel and I enjoyed my stay. Near to a major train station and perfect for my onward destination. Not too close to some of the sights but accessible by the tram, buses and metro. Stayed in a double room which was really nice and clean. Atmosphere in the evenings was great and the two free welcome drinks were much appreciated. Main criticism was the WIFI - poor connection, you can use the computers (not free) but some sites (e.g Facebook) were restricted!

I was thrilled with how close this was to the train! The staff was friendly.. The rooms wee clean, and having a private bathroom was nice in the suite.. I also thought the security was really god with needing to swipe to get into certain sections of the hostel..

I stayed here for 3 nights, from 20 Oct to 22 Oct, in a 8 people room. The room was spacious and my roommates were really friendly. However, the bad thing is, there is no power socket for the single beds and I had to borrow other bunk beds' power socket to charge my phone. The dining area was pretty spacious and clean. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment and cooking necessities you will need to cook your own food. Hostel staff were very friendly, approachable and helpful too!

Standard large hostel. Facilities were really good, but such a large hostel it's hard to meet people. The bar down stairs was average and it's a fair distance from everywhere. Wifi worked everywhere. Staff didn't leave much of an impression and the walking tour was difficult to organise, you had to find your own way to another Wombats in Vienna and then leave from there. The day i tried to do it the walking tour host didn't show up, resulting in a waste of an hour.

It was really good for me. Every employee in a reception were really friendly and kind (except for 1 girl who worked at morningtime) & there had a proper-size lobby and bar for customer. It is located in a really good area (coming from Westbahnhof) to get to any tour areas.

Very noisy in rooms looking at back yard and poor sound isolation generally. Bunch of kids, like fourteen years old, were staying at the moment, so it was loud and they partied all night in corridors, knocked randomly on doors, sleeping was not an option. Staff didn't do anything about that. Other than that, clean and nice location, but not sure if I would stay there again.

I had a health emergency on my last night in Vienna and needed to go to the hospital. I missed check out and the AWESOME staff was very kind and understanding leaving my things untouched until I could pick them up later that evening. Especially when travelling alone, a hostel which isnt dying to get rid of you as quickly as possible is a breath of fresh air.

Everything was fine. I'd only add more light to the bedroom, near the wardrobe and to the bathrrom, over the mirror to facilitate make up and to put and take out the contact lenses.(room 306)
