It's really close to the interest places in Vienn, just few minutes walking to the main streets. About the rooms, those are clean and big, so if there are 10 persons in the same room it's not a problem. If anybody want to have a drink is not necessary to go to another place, cause they have a bar in the first floor with good prices.

This is one of the best hostel I ever visited. Everything is well organized, the staff is very friendly and helped us wherever they could. The rooms were quite big with a lot of space, everyone had an own locker. The rooms and the bathroom in the room got cleaned every day. There is no danger of bedbugs, because you get clean linen and nobody's allowed to take the own sleeping bag. There is also a nice bar for the evenings with daily changing specials and a big kitchen for cooking.

Wombats was great! Good security and staff and a great little bar downstairs. The only downside was the kitchen, it was tiny and really dirty for the number of people staying at wombats.

Really nice hostel with quick and helpful staff. They also have tasty all-you-can-eat" breakfasts for 3.90 euros. Only wasn't stable, but it's ok.

The sheets were pretty dirty and I had bedbugs. At least they washed my clothes for free and I got a free breakfast.

Hey there! We are very sorry for the trouble with these nasty bugs; we are trying everything to prevent them, to identify them if they have been brought to our hostel and to get rid of them by spraying the rooms. Nevertheless these bugs love to travel and are a problem all around Europe on which we are reacting the best possible way. By washing your clothes you get rid of them immediately as they die when exposed to temperatures higher than 60 degrees Celsius.

This hostel is great if you are about 18 years old and are traveling just to party with other 18 year olds. It is clean enough, but the wifi worked about 40% of the time at best. The staff at check in was very friendly but not so much at the bar. The location was close to a metro stop, but a very long walk from city center. The area was pretty dead on the week night that I was there.

The room was nice and clean, so was the hostel. This was one of the biggest hostels I have stayed at and for me, that felt like it's downfall for the atmosphere, there were too many people to get to know/talk to. Facilities were good though, as was location and the lockers with the security card was amazing.

Pros: Easy to get to no matter where you are, cheap laundromats, good security, complimentary drink. Cons: the shower floods everytime someone has a shower, they provide you with a squeegee, which does nothing, and you constantly have to dodge deep pools of shower water while going to the toilet at night (because everyone, shock horror, bathes once a day). Some of the staff have a bad attitude, which I hope the manager will pay attention to, as there have been a lot of complaints around the web.

Hey there! We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused by the shower, there was actually a missing part which caused the flooding and it is now repaired. Concerning the bad attitude of some staff members, we would be happy if you could describe that closer to us by sending an email to office-naschmarkt@wombats.eu We would really appreciate a detailed feedback so we can improve our work in the future. Best regards

Amazing breakfast, it's not included but it's definitely worth the extra €3.90. The bathrooms were always spotless and the staff generally very helpful! It would have been helpful to have extra bathrooms as one toilet between eight people and no extra bathrooms except in the bar was extremely hard sometimes. Wifi was also generally very weak and poor quality.
