One of the best hostels I've stayed at, staff were amazing and so friendly. Beds were comfortable and the showers were incredible for a hostel. Location is good, right near the train station and only a short journey to the city centre. They offer a free walking tour which I recommend, it's really fun and a great way to meet people. Highly recommend this hostel, can't wait to stay here again some day.
Convenient location, clean and comfortable but maybe could have done with a bit more tourist information
I had a great time here! It has a nice atmosphere and a lively bar but the noise doesn't travel to the rooms. Location is good - right near train and metro. Kitchen is well appointed and food at the bar is cheap. Staff were great and went out of their way to be helpful. Fun place!
As a solo traveler they threw me in a room with all non English speakers and 60 year old woman who was constantly talking to her self..... Fun times..
hostel has a nice bar, good breakfasts and is in a good location. trains are close by. staff were nice and the rooms clean. all wombats are a high standard.
It's a large hostel so there were a number of groups, but the bar downstairs was a good place to meet other travellers if your travelling alone. The girl behind the bar was also happy to make suggestions for dinner, bars etc. The security for getting in to the building, your room and lockers was great. The breakfast, all you can eat for €3.90, was good value and kept me going through out the day. I recommend doing the free walking tour which starts from one of the sister hostels. Clean and safe.
Great Hostel. Met lots of great people! The big couch downstairs is amazing to chill out on hungover!
It's a little far from the centre. Didn't include breakfast or towels. Heaps of school groups stay here. I found it hard to meet people. Even the bar was dead all night and overpriced. Just wasn't my favourite Hostel.
This is a good, modern, well equipped hostel with everything you'd expect. Had a good stay here, it's a little way from the centre but very well connected. Staff were very friendly, the free welcome drink was a nice touch. Kitchen is big and well equipped, bar is nice though was a little dead the 2 times we went. Very clean and was quiet enough to sleep well. Was a little more expensive than some hostels we'd stayed in elsewhere but was of a higher quality too.
wombat walk was great. staff was amazing. bar was cool. so close to the westbahnhof and rails it was awesome.
I stayed in a double room, however in a wheelchair's bedroom, so my boyfriend and I didn't like.
I have to say that it's the second time i stay at this hostel and it's been really good .. great facilities .. the rooms are really nice and love the common area !!!
Great place! With nice staff and a bar with great music.

Very impressive hostel, great bar downstairs and the free drink voucher gets everyone socialising. Very friendly staff, thanks for your hospitality!
Great hostel with excellent value for money. Good location close to Alexanderplatz, good 3,90 euros breakfast, bed linen provided and clean facilities. The big problem, though, was the wifi. Not working for days and, as my girlfriend needed to use the internet real bad, she had to pay to use the computer (which is totally wrong as these additional costs shouldn't happen if the service they offered were correctly provided)
Staff were so friendly, hospitable and gave great advice. All of them went our of their way to assist us as much as they could, and they demonstrated excellent knowledge of Vienna! Location amazingly close and convenient to station and shops and supermarket! Walking distance to sites (all flat) Kitchen was by far the best i have ever used,so well set up and cleaned and taken care of! use of free food was so handy! Room spacious, good bathroom & security with keycard. Free towel handy!
awesome hostel. cant think of anything bad about it. a free drinks coupon was given per person when we checked in to be used at the bar!
It may be worth to check the functional condition of the mattress and pillow.

When we arrived at the train station it was difficult to locate the direction of the hostel, because there were a number of different exists from the train station, on a very large road junction. Staff were friendly and the room was very clean. Bar was nice downstairs with a free pool table and there were plenty of landry faclitities. The only thing we found odd was the cleaner took one of our peaches while cleaning the room (so we were left peachless on the train the next morning) :)
