Great staff and just a fun place to be. They're willing to help with pretty much anything you need and it isn't hard to get to the main sites from the hostel. The bar is fun and they have wonderful suggestions of places to visit that wouldn't normally be on a tourist list.

Great with breakfast option, nice with lots of common rooms, bar, pool table and all. VERY friendly and service minded staff! It was very good with a private bathroom for the dorm, but It would've been nice to have a toilet in the corridor too, since if someone was showering, no one could go to the loo...but that's just a parenthesis :)

This is a good and efficient hostel. Clean, great facilities, Cozy beds, amazing staff. For me, it just lacked a bit of personality and the location was a bit off. Overall a nice experience, would definitely recommend.

Nice place to stay close to Westbahnhof, although the closer to station, it can be a bit doggy. Helpful and nice staff (good looking Austrian guys :P). Room was clean with ensuite bathroom, lockers, well organised. Excellent WiFi. Good value for money.

I stayed with Wombats for one night before catching a train the next afternoon, it was a nice place to keep my stuff and get some rest. My roommates were a bit rowdy but otherwise I got a goodnights sleep and that's really all that matters. Amazing location if you're catching a train out of Westbahnhof.

Loved staying here, great staff, clean rooms, easy walk from busses and u bahn, good safe locker storage and well equipped kitchen....the bar is a bit dark and dank but really that's a small point.

Probably the best place to stay in Vienna. The westbanhof and the u-bahn station are at 5 minutes walk. There are also supermarkets and everything you need around the hostel. The city center (the ring) is very close by metro or tram. The room are spacious with comfortable beds (I stayed in a 6 bed dorm for woman), a clean bathroom and big lockers. There are a spacious kitchen, a restaurant room (with breakfast) and a bar. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Youthful atmosphere. Rooms are ok, very basic. Breakfast is excellent and offered at the time for 3,90 : juice, coffee, vegetables, bread, cereals, fruits etc.euros. Kitchen where you can cook or store your food in fridge. Bar down stairs where you get a free welcome drink. The noice from the bar cannot be heard to rooms, we had room on floor 1. Very good budget hotel.

I am totally satisfied about the hostel. However, during my journey, I can not open the windows of the room. If you have the window attached protective equipment, it seems to be better.

Hey :) Thanx for your feedback! Usually it shouldn't be a problem to open the windows in the rooms - they're not locked! I know though that austrian windows are a little difficult to open for foreigners as they're a little different;) Next time please ask reception and they'll be happy to help you:) See you next time, Kerstin

Great location, that is really main thing I look for when hosteling. Rooms were normal, pretty comfy bed, normal bathroom in the room, really nice that there are lockers in the rooms that you can use w out any extra fees. If you need a towel you can ask for it as well at the reception. Great friendly staff and modern design, plus great wi- fi throughout.

Great hostel. Located < 5 min walking from the train station. The staff is very friendly in providing insight about the city. In the 4 dorm room, there is an attached shower. I wish the staff organized more events to get to know other occupants of the hostel. However, I was only there for 1 night so maybe they did on other days of the week? Overall, a very great hostel!

Every bed has a reading light and it's own plug which is very nice. Lockers in the room with key card entry. Security is all key card access. Staff is great and very helpful. Kind of annoying that breakfast is not included though. Location is good. Right next to the metro station .

There is no A/C in the room, which is really hot in summer. There was some smell in the corridor.

The staff was very friendly, from the beginning to the last minute. The room cleaning service was great, otherwise the whole room would be a huge mess.
