This is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at! Free locker in the room, free printing service, the staff safeguards your electronics... They were really friendly as well, there were problems with my check in, so they gave me an extra free coupon to use at the bar downstairs. Wombats is next to a few stores and close by all sorts of public transportation. Wonderful!

Loved staying at this place. Much of traveling is simply about trusting people, so security is not a huge thing. Your key card will be able to allow you to lock your valuables in a good sized locker (fits a large backpack, some clothes). Like all hostels, anything you leave out of your locker is accessible to everyone - i was able to enter a double bed private room when i swiped my key card against the wrong door number (my key was for a 6 bed female dorm). Enjoy your stay, this place is clean!

Pretty good hostel experience, there's nothing here that will blow you away, but there's not much that will leave you dissatisfied. A bit far from the center of Vienna, but close to a metro station. I would recommend this place to friends.

It would be nice to fill the hair and body gel, not to leave it empty. Not enough lights in our room (206).

Hi Martin ! Our housekeeping team refills every day the soap dispenders in our rooms. So it's really strange you found them empty. Anw, if you need additional shampoo or shower gel please tell us, you get it on our 24h reception at any time of the day. We hope you enjoyed Vienna and wish you nice travels. Your Wombat's Team

Had a nice time at the hostel, staff is really friendly, gave me a map and tips about the city. Location is perfect, just one block from the train/metro station. There you also can take a bus that goes to the aiport. A lot of cafes and restaurants close, two groceries store just next door. Breakfast os 3.90e and is great!

Overall, a really good hostel. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The bar downstairs was a lot of fun. Rooms were cleaned daily. A few things i did not like so much. The hostel is HUGE therefore there are so many different common spaces that it was hard to meet and get to know new people. Also, the wifi was horrible. Granted I have a bad phone so I will put some of the blame on that, but it was really frustrating trying to do anything online.

Staff were very helpful and knowledgable. It was very quiet in the common areas. Only one PowerPoint per room which was annoying. Often you couldn't get the opportunity to charge your phone. Beds were flimsy. Bathrooms smelt Location was good for catching public transport with the metro and train station very close by. you are also walking distance to the shopping mall
