The wifi didn't work the entire time I was there. The system was inadequate with the amount of people. It was really good other then that.

Overall I had a good time. The place was extremely hot and poor ventilation during my stay. Vienna is a large city, and this place is very well located for most things. Staff was nice, but they have to deal with a lot of people as this is a fairly large hostel. Beds and cleanliness were fine.

Best hostel I've ever stayed. They know what they're doing and they're doing it right. Location, price, staff, cleanliness, attention to details, and they got them all right. They have 2 branches in Vienna so be sure not to go to the wrong branch. I did but it was my own fault so I'm not complaining. But they gave me a free drink to compensate me. How nice of them !! Would definitely come back !! Tour guide abit lacking though. Not enthusiast or interesting enough to attain interest.

Wombats was a comfortable hostel with good kitchen facilities. The happy hour specials at the bar are good deals, and it's a good place to meet other travelers. The WiFi wasn't very good at all, and the breakfast was mediocre for how much it cost.

In this trip we had two stays in this hostel. First, the guy who greeted us at reception, Fabian, was nice and very informative but he gave us the room facing to main street, so very noisy and during night time we heard some people fighting and shouting!! Second call of our stay booked via hostel world, the girl receptionist was not nice she again would gave us room facing to small street and she said if we want to have better room, it would be worth, do booking directly with the hotel.

Bit pricey however this could have been because we booked pretty late. Overall a really great hostel, rooms and bathrooms were clean and well equipped. Only downside was that the wifi was absolutely terrible and pretty much didn't work the whole two days we spent there. Kitchen and bar were good though and nice to have a lot of communal spaces.

Hostel seems a little scruffy but may be due to age - however room/bathroom were clean so no problems. Location is about 20 minutes walk from main sights- can also get the tube/tram. Breakfast good value, and shared kitchen good. Nice atmosphere in communal areas.

Staff were on the whole helpful. Mostly part timers, I felt sometimes there was a lack of commitment.

Everything was perfect and staff were great. I didn't get my drivers license back though and left in a rush to catch a flight.

The atmosphere was simply great. Location was really good for arriving and departure and very well connected by train and subway. Rooms were clean and with all you could need.

The room was average size for 6 people.The showers were in each room, and became dirty. You had to make the bed, which is difficult at night. The breakfast was excellent for the price! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free walking tour did not leave from this location, so you had to take public transportation or walk. It would have been very helpful to have a shuttle (or a guide to walk there with). It had a nice bar, and lounge area for relaxing or socializing. Location was adequate
