Indifferent and rude staff, a good hour walk from most of the city sights. Far too many people in this hostel, creates zero sense of community. The beds are nice but for this region of Europe, way way way overpriced.

Thnx for staying with us,it’s a pity you experienced our house differently from most other reviewers.We will try to find out what went wrong & work on it.Anw I’d like to add,that we're on MariahilferStraße,Vienna’s best shopping street,that directly leads to the city center and we’re about 20 min walk from Schönbrunn Palace. Both, can be reached by underground or tram within 10 minutes.You can contact us directly via www.wombats.eu if you’d like to help us improve. Your Wombat'sTeam


Prime location next to the train station. Actual fresh sheets that come packaged; you put them on yourself. Bar in-house with cheap drinks (it does close early but that makes you get out and go to a local place already toasty.) Informative and reasonably friendly staff is always welcome traveling Europe. It's one of my top hostel experiences.


greag value for money. good breakfast. good location.


Good hostel, close to metro.


Just my opinion but, Didnt really appreciate the loud DJ music when I just wanted to have a conversation in the bar. There are other places in Vienna to go out and hear loud thumping music


Lockers in the room and good wifi. Fun bar downstairs and nearby to transportation. Security for who is coming in and out isn't great, we had a roommate who brought back an "extra guest" to our room. Staff isn't that friendly or helpful but they have a lot of suggestions posted around the hostel of things to do. Kitchen is big and easy to use.


Definitely recommend. A little out of the city, so get a transit pass to come and go as you please (metro very close). Security when entering building is non-existent during the day, but need key card to enter floors and rooms. Guest kitchen was awesome, except fridge was way too cold and froze half my food (so I turned it down). Rooms were clean, ensuite bathrooms a bonus. Friendly staff and people staying there! Is a must in Vienna


the room was in general ok, quiet though exposed to the street.but the joints in between the tiles in the shower cubicle were partly covered with mold, also the handles of the sliding-doors there. you couldnt close the shower without touching it. hairs from the user before were sticking to the walls. The toilet had a odor of urine. It seemed there was only some kind of superficial cleaning for a long time ... it would be nice to have an additional sheet on the Matress (stains ...)

The stuff is nice! Give us a warm welcome !!


My friend and I had an awesome stay at Wombats. Even though we only stayed for one night, we experienced a wonderful atmosphere and the staff were super helpful and engaging. The place was very well run, clean, and had excellent facilities and very nice rooms. I would definitely stay at a Wombats hostel at any of their other locations.


It's really the perfect hostel, the lounge with matresses and the pillows are definitely an awesome idea! I'd only recommend it together with the Wombats Hostel in Budapest!

I just looove the place. Awesome staff, excellent facilities, everything very clean, good space, private bath on your room, everything at a walking distance, they have their own free walking tour... just love it. After the experience, I stayed at the berlin Wombat too, and it was the same service. Absolutely recomended


The best hostel in Vienna to stay! Realy nice atmosphere, thay have a great bar, pooltable, computers, relaxing bench with a lot of pillows. There are personal lockers in the rooms


It was terrific good location, and kind staffs I want to go there again


Cool place, satisfied with it.


I love this hostel. I've been three times in Vienna and always stay there.


Good WiFi in rooms. Hostel layout makes it hard to meet people :/


All in all amazing, as always! The only bad thing is the drunk neighbors making noise really late in the hallway.. Other than that - perfect!

Extensive common areas so always a place to eat/ chill. Rooms large and clean. Kitchen well equipped. Breakfast great value. Wifi ok. Staff very helpful. Bar a little dull. Fantastic location. Easily hot here from the coach station and central train across the road. Relaxing stay :)


Excellent central place to stay. Well outfitted rooms. Lockers that lock! Awesome breakfast. Kitchen facilities looked good, even though I didn't use them. Only issue was internet wasn't reliable and was only available in the main floor & lounge. Otherwise, one of the best hostels I've stayed at!
