I have been there last year during a working week in Vienna and I came back this year with a couple of people. They were also enthusiastic for the location, cleanliness and all the facilities. I knew what I was going to find. In case I need to go back next year I will definitely choose the wombats again. Thanks for everything.

the hostel ages... it might be still nice for young budget traveller, but if you can afford an extra EUR 20-30 for a 2-bedroom, you get better/clean/stylish rooms in hotels throughout the city. Depends what you're after: Wombats still good for meeting other travellers, the party in the basement on weekend nights is still on. - double room 404: rather poorly equipped, lamps not bright enough in bathroom, not really a place to leave clothes/towel in bathroom once you're in the shower

Conveniently located near the Westbankof train station, metros and tram. Other than average cleanliness as the rooms were not cleaned everyday as confirmed by a lady reception staff, its other facilities were good.

I'd stayed at Wombats The Lounge in 2009, so I knew what I could expect. The location is excellent, close to Westbahnhof station and there are some markets nearby. The hostel aged a bit since then, but remains a good value for money. The pub inside is nice and staff is always ready to help you.

The on;y problem is that the Wi-Fi is not reliable. At certain times it is impossible to connect to or use the internet. It can take 1-1/2 hours to send one email. Wombats needs to upgrade the Wi-Fi because there are many guests trying to connect. In 2015, internet should work.

Handy location for the train station but would recommend staying nearer to the centre for good restaurant/bars within walking distance. We went for the walking tour at the sister hostel to find it was cancelled which was a shame as we only had a short time in the city.

Very nice hostel. We stayed in a double room. Room was spacious enough and quite. Very recommendable is the bar in the basement with pool table and table soccer. Unfortonately the wifi was not working well (permanent connection problems and poor internet speed)

The location, the view from the room, the very very friendly staff which really made my short vacation an easy one, were great. I recommend it to everyone. The location was great, with some nice eateries around, as well as its a good location for talking to other travellers. If you go, use the hostel map, it scores over the tourist map.

Wombats is a nice hostel , linked perfectly with public services , good vibes and very available people. you can play biliards , table football and have a drink in the bar downstairs. plus there a lot of sofas where you can relax and talk with people. only thing I didn't like was breakfast , it's not free , it costs 3,9€ while a lot of hostels where I have been gives you the same breakfast included in the price. but it's a great hostel where you can have nice days in Wien

We were so happy with are stay. The staff is friendly and helpful, we were able to crash on the extremely comfy couches in the lobby for a couple of hours since we got in around 5 in the morning. They even let us enter our room well before check in since we were waiting around. Our rooms were very clean, the bathroom spacious, and the location is right near the public transport going anywhere. Would stay here again!

Really clean and well kept - feels like a hotel with certain aspects of a hostel. However we had to make our own beds which I found weird. Why am I paying to have to make my own bed on my vacation? Staff was helpful with questions but definitely not the most friendly hostel staff I've experienced.

Every single one of the personnel in the hostel is friendly and help you for whatever you may need, the washing and drying machine are quite nice since they even work for delicate stuff and the bar was amazing during the night! Perfect stay :)

It was an acceptable stay at the hostel. There could've been better cleanliness but the bar was fun, the lounging areas were nice and the staff was lovely.
