Hostelworld says:

Wombats City Hostel Vienna at the Naschmarkt is in a great location overlooking Vienna's biggest market. It's also a short walk from the Hofburg, Secessionhaus and the Vienna State Opera, making it ideal for those looking to soak up some culture while in the city. This modern, secure and clean hostel has friendly, helpful staff and a popular and lively bar serving cheap beer. Several Hostelworld guests have compared it favourably to a hotel.

Property Information:

Centrally located directly at Vienna Naschmarkt, Wombats opened the doors to its third Vienna hostel on March 1st 2011.

No matter what you want to see in Vienna, it is all just moments away from Wombats City Hostel Vienna at the Naschmarkt. The center can be reached within in minutes by foot and the nearby U4 (at underground station Kettenbrueckengasse) provides a short connection between Schoenbrunn palace and the city center. It is ideal for anyone who wants to explore Vienna by day or night!

There are five big reasons why Wombats City Hostel became a destination in its own right:

First, we got the best cleanliness!
Unfortunately this is not something you can take for granted in many other hostels, but we do take this very seriously. We have won the Hostelworld award for the Cleanest Hostel Chain Worldwide twice.

Secondly, we also have the best amenities.
We re centrally located close to trains and public transport. There is maximum security provided, with smartcard access for the front door, the floor, the rooms and your locker. All of our rooms come with comfy wooden beds, a private shower and toilet facilities.

Other free goodies include free Wi-Fi in the lobby, bar, guest kitchen and breakfast area, free bed sheets, free use of our travel guidebooks, free luggage storage, a free welcome drink and free lockers in every room.

We also offer free maps for Vienna, Munich, Berlin and Budapest, loads and loads of free brochures on tours, sights, accommodation and other destinations in Europe, and our free walking tour.

We offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast for an extra 4.50 euros; our lively womBAR serves cheap drinks and food, internet terminals, laundromats, 24 hours reception service and - of course - no age limit, no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules.

Thirdly, we are a hostel by travellers for travellers.
We have travelled the world ourselves - so we know firsthand what you are doing and what you expect from us. We care for you and we care for your feedback.

The fourth reason is our social atmosphere.
We make sure that you will feel safe and welcome here. When you have been on the road all day long, seeing sights and walking and walking, it's cool to have a nice scene at the hostel where you can relax, have some beers, talk and make new friends. This will make your stay a memorable one! Many travellers stayed quite a bit longer than primarily intended.

Finally, Wombat is no dirt cheap. You might find an even cheaper place to crash in town, but none where you get more value for your money.

Please note that our rates don not include breakfast; the all-you-can-eat continental buffet brekkie might be enjoyed for the bargain price of 4.50 euros. There is no need to reserve breakfast, just come to the reception in the morning and buy a ticket if you are hungry.

Please be aware that we have a minimum age of 16 years. If you're under 18 we'll need a written confirmation from your legal guaridan allowing you to stay with us.

  • Wombats City Hostel Vienna - at the Naschmarkt says

    I think what makes Wombats special is that there is not the single unique thing making it special, but that we do a very good job in having it all. At this Wombats the Naschmarkt is right in front of the door. It's a unique farmer's market, the biggest in Vienna. Most stalls, as well as the buildings on the avenues on both sides, were built around 1910 in Art Nouveau style. It's not only one of Vienna's most important sights, there are also a big number of cafés, bars and restaurants, from local to exotic.
    For fun, our guests like to waste themselves with beer, Jägermeister or a combination thereof. We can't deny that. A good night's sleep can be fun, too, though. It can be had; the rooms are well away from the brouhaha. And they're big, not crammed and stuffy.

    Positives: amazing shower. Fantastic pressure, very modern. Best I've had all trip. Negatives: Never a good thing to make travellers have to put their own sheets on the bed. At least you don't have to "buy" them here but still lazy and annoying on the hostels behalf to not do something so basic. Location is about 20 minutes walk from anything worth seeing and 30 minutes walk from the central station.
