We had a fine stay but nothing spectacular. Feels a lot like a college dormitory but that being said the facilities (laundry, kitchens, bathrooms) are all very good and usable. Staff was OK but no one was very friendly or went out of their way to help us get a handle on Vienna's sights. I would not stay here again, not because I had a bad experience, but because I prefer staying in smaller more personal hostels.

Location was also good and friendly staff. But the room Corner location is referred to as Wi-Fi was not caught too. This is the most disadvantage.......

Great location, large rooms with ensuites, really safe lockers, terrific breakfast, eating room and kitchen. You might consider reducing the eating room size and extending the relaxation/common room as it seemed a bit cramped. Great in house bar. Wombats map/guide was invaluable and had terrific ideas. Staff were very helpful in advising where to go. Would definitely go back.

Great place to socialize and meet new people at the bar. They have really cheap drinks at the bar for happy hour, but with very little alcohol added to them, so opt for beer over cocktails. The hostel was clean for the most part and anytime something went wrong during our stay, the staff was very accomodating. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and it was a pretty good size. Lockers were a good size too. Located close to restaurants and bars and right across from the metro. Short ride into the city.

This hostel is great. It's in a super location. It has a great breakfast and a good onsite bar. The laundry is reasonably priced. Lots of helpful info at reception. The rooms are big and clean.

Great hostel chain with great facilities. Location is great if you need to catch a train at Westbanhof or arriving from it, but it is kind of far away from main attractions (20 minutes walk to main historical area). Since public transportation is expensive in Austria, this can be kind of a pain.

The staff is willing to help as much as you need

Location wasn't great, took about 40 mins to walk to the city center but metro stop was right beside hostel. This hostel was €7 cheaper per night than the other Wombats downtown but I think it was worth it. Cool bar in the basement and chill places all around the hostel. Wifi was okay. Lockers in room. All in all a good stay. Also you get a free small beer.

Great hostel but wifi was a bit slow and would cut occasionally

In larger dorm rooms, ensuite bathrooms become a hassle. If someone is having a shower there is no access to a bathroom on your level. good hostel overall, kitchen facilities, bar facilities.

Hi, thanks for your review and the comment! We are aware of that issue, so in our newly opened hostels, we try to have bathroom and shower room seperate for larger dorms. For our lovely Lounge, we have a downstairs bathroom available, and also an extra shower just in case. Hope to see you again soon at wombat's!

I stayed here because I enjoyed staying at Wombats Munich and this place was better! Staff are super friendly and helpful. Location is great, an easy enjoyable walk to all sights and 2 minutes from the train station. Large clean rooms, great deals at the bar, laundry facilities and free secure luggage storage. The breakfast was also really good! I would definitely stay here again :-)

A great chain hostel so they have a reputation to uphold, which they did for me. A great bar downstairs that attracts locals too. Breakfast was worth paying for although you'd easily find food on the high street which is the way into city, although this was my only negative; it takes a good 30 mins to reach the main town down the shopping street which can get tiresome twice a day! Other than that, a great hostel!

Hi from Vienna, thanks for your review! We are working on our breakfast concept, to keep it basic and affordable or to go a bit more fancy :) check it next time you are here! Best regards, Christina

One particular staff member was consistently rude and for no apparent reason. Apart from her, the staff was helpful and this place is fairly priced and in a great location. It's a large hostel but, you can meet people if you try to mingle. Breakfast is also tasty!

The lounge downstairs is really nice. Even better than many of the bars of vienna, highly recommended. Comfy couches, armchairs & the living room feel is great. So is the billard table :)
