Good breakfast (too bad it's paid), good wifi. Staff was really nice and really helped us during our stay.

One of the best hostels i have everstayed in.


The wifi was really really really really poor. I couldn't get any signal in the room, and one night I couldn't get signal anywhere in the hostel. Besides that, everything was fine. The location couldn't be better. If they can fix the wifi problem, I will definitely stay there again.


Location is amazing! but it is a little bit loud at night.


Just a little bit far away from the town. All of other things are perfect. It is one of the best hostels to be stayed.


The bed is almost broken and the upstairs one is shaking when someone is climbing up. and it is too noisy that some guy go back too late


Location was perfect for train travel and airport transfer. Basic room and convenient ensuite bathroom. Good heating during winter. Helpful and friendly staff. Recommended.


The greatest assest of this hostel is it's location next to Westbanhof station which makes it ideal for train travel. We found the rooms to be clean and spacious enough, and the staff friendly and efficient. A 20 minute walk to the Museum Quartier was no bother, and generally many attractions are at a walking distance from the hostel. The lockers open at a mild nudge so watch what you leave in them!


It's not good for a family because rooms are too small and specially because you can find apartments that are much more confortable for similar or even lower price

Dear guest! Thank you for your comment. Yes, we agree, if you are looking for a apartment we are maybe not the right place . Simply because WE ARE A HOSTEL and a very good alternative for apartments. Anw - we wish you nice and safe travels. Your Wombat's Team


It's a good hostel with good facilities, but the atmosphere wasn't so good. They are located a little bit far from the city center, but at least there is a train station and a subway station nearby which makes so much easier to get around in the city. The public transport in Wien is perfect, it's true that's a little bit expensive but you can go anywhere you want at anytime you want!


The hostel is very nice, but it's a bit of a walk to the Museum Quarter, about 20 minutes or so. The hostel is set up like a hotel, which has it's advantages and disadvantages -- once you're out of the lounge/bar area everything feels pretty anonymous, but the rooms were very secure and the atmosphere in the downstairs bar and lounge area was lively. There are some nice restaurants right around the hostel, especially Okay Pizza where we always ended up for late night snacks.


Good and clean hostel with a nice bar in the basement. Close to Westbahnhof and metro/tram stop.


Just perfect place ! Location is few minutes from Westbanhof, stuff is great, hostel is clean and very secure. Also, all you can eat breakfast just 3,8 €. And of course, there is a bar with really good and cheap beer !


Very nice stuff, great breakfast and good location. The room was a bit too hot and the shower didn't have any curtains so the bath was completely wet after a shower.

In our room 118, when I took the sheets off after my girlfriend put them on I noticed a rather large blood stain on the backside. That she didn't i find that to be quite unacceptable and couldnt say much with us being on our way out.

Great hostel with a very friendly and helpful staff. Next time i'm in vienna i'm definitely staying at wombats the lounge one more time.


Will definitely choose wombats again in the future.


Keep it up!


The staff is not very friendly and they just don't recommend you things unless you ask also the bar closes very early even when they see that there are people having fun there .


I love Womats thanks for all ! Just the bathroom should be cleaner ;) but well I simply cleaned it by myself ;)
