This hostel is one of the best that i have stayed in. But, 3 years ago on my visit to vienna, i have stayed the other wombats hostel and that hostel was nicer than here. The only difference was the building and the bathrooms in the room were more fancy, bigger and newer. Everything else is the same. Wombats lounge can have better bathrooms (because they were small and not easy to use, but everything was working perfectly) and strongest beds; this is the only command i can make.

I sent and e-mail to unbook my stay, but received no reply and instead was charged on my bank card. Poor handling.

Really good hostel. It's quite large so loses some of that friendliness that small hostels have, however, the atmosphere is great and the staff don't stop people from having fun. The bar is in the basement so won't keep you awake til the early hours like happens in some hostels. You get a free welcome drink on arrival which is a nice way to start. The location is pretty good, though it's a bit far from some of the main sites, however the metro is very easy to use and cheap to travel on.

This is the perfect hostel to stay in in Vienna if you're a solo travel or in a group. Really nice staff, good atmosphere, awesome bar downstairs. Wish I could've stayed longer! It's just a few stops away on the underground from the main bus station.

Now we know why Wombats Hostel is so famous!!! It's perfect, clean, confortable and has a really great atmosphere with an amazing bar. They also had offered a Free Walking Tour that was really great. Even if it's not so close to the city center, it's not a long walk to get there. So we really recommend this hostel.

I really enjoyed my 2 nights here, it's got plenty of space to chill and chat and also having a bar is great. Makes it easy to meet fellow travellers. It was located close to the station so was easy to get around and not too far from major landmarks.

Big good sized rooms, lockers were big enough to get all my stuff in. The breakfast was the same as other wombats hostels (cereals, toast, rolls, hams, cheese). The beds we comfortable and each bed had its own light and plug. The security was really good need a pass to get into the hallway and room. Location was alright, but it is a good walk into the city centre.

neighborhood a little sketch, but that seems to be what you get if you want to stay near a train station

There are two Wombats in Vienna. Stay at this one. We stayed at both and the experience could not be more different. Located right off of the Westbahnhof train stop, the location cannot be beat. There are complementary towels and sheets, breakfast is cheap and Amazing and the facilities are clean and up to date. The best part is that each bed, regardless of if its a bunk bed or not, has an outlet and shelf for electronics and a little bed lamp for reading. Would definitely stay here again.

Likes the proximity to the Westbanhof station as it is located just across the street from the exit of the subway. The locker I was assigned couldn't be locked with the card key. Overall, the room is clean, just abit small for the 4-bed female dorm. The buffet breakfast is good & affordable.

Really good hostel with lots of space - not cramped like some. Great facilities that every backpacker needs. There is a small charge for breakfast, but there is a kitchen to get around that. Towels are free!! Just ask for one. Noise from the bar area does NOT transmit to other parts of the hostel. I would definitely stay there again.

Really clean high quality hostel. Great facilities and friendly staff! Close to the city, and to public transport. The only downer was having to pay for breakfast, but everything else was great!

It is a good hostel and it is very close to Westbahnhof which is one of the main metro lines in Vienna. So you can easily go anywhere from here. I had some issues while getting my train ticket to the other city. And wifi was not working properly. So it was very difficult situation for me. But the staff at reception helped me a lot. They arranged me a laptop which was working with an ethernet cable.So i got the ticket. I'd like to thank you to them for that. So it is a good hostel with its staff.

The thing about wombats is you never know who your roommate will be.
