Excellent hostel. Clean, helpful staff, big bedroom/bathroom, equipied kitchen, good breakfast for an honest price. The location is also really good: very close to a metro station and more or less 10 minutes walking from the center. There are lockers; plug and reading light next to the bed. But the best is the atmosphere, so many friendly people! If you're alone, you'll meet someone at the bar. I've been in a Wombats Hostel in Munich and that's why I chose it again: never disapoints!!!

Great location by the Nashmarkt. Staff was very nice. I stayed in a private room, which was large and clean and had its own bathroom. The location is great for those who want to be close enough to the center (in more of place where the locals live) but yet only a 15 minute walk to St. Stevens Plaza and all the attractions in the center of town.

Really nice hostel with good facilities. Great atmosphere - the bar was a really good place to meet fellow travellers! Our room was very clean and the staff were helpful. The all you can eat breakfast was also very good value for money at €4.50.

Pretty nice hostel, rooms were hot. Security was great, lockers and rooms were card activated. Wifi was good. Good kitchen but it was packed and extremely hot. Could use an AC unit. One thing to note when we were checking in someone who had stayed the previous night and just came back complaining that she had bites from bed fleas. We didn't have any problems though.

Excellent location near the main sites of Vienna. This hostel has great kitchen facilities meaning budget travellers can save money by cooking instead of eating out. Very clean, close to supermarkets and public transport to get to the main train station. Would recommend.

Wombats is one of my top choices when staying in Vienna (the other is the Hostel Ruthensteiner). It's got a great location and the three and four person rooms have their own shower. They also have a washers & dryers, and a bar till 2am. There is also a low key common area, and the possibility for breakfast in the morning. During this particular visit, the weather was in the mid 90s, and Wombats has no air conditioning, so the building, along with the rest of Vienna, was sweltering.

Great stay and friendly atmosphere, the hostel bar is fun. So incredibly hot the few nights I stayed which I realize isn't the hostels fault - but some more fans in the rooms with a lot of people would have been really nice! Also a little hard to meet new people as a solo traveller in the bar , it's so loud it's had to approach people to talk, luckily I met people on the free walking tour and checked out the bar with them. Great hostel and location!

Thank you for your review! Yes, we had a lot of contikis here, but it will change next year/summer as the contract will be different. I hope that apart that, you were able to enjoy your stay in Vienna and our Hostel and we can welcome you again in one of our Hostels all around Europe!:-) Happy and safe travels, your wombat´s Team:-)

Pretty nice hostel, free complimentary beer for the bar and super friendly staff. Lots of big groups as well though so as a solo traveler found it a bit harder to make friends, but the bar was a pretty good go to. Nice big kitchen, just watch out for the cleaning staff very rude!! Sign said we can cook while they clean and they screamed at us and tried to kick us out mid breakfast. Staff need to be told the rules ahead of time.

Would not stay here again, especially in the summer. In terms of higher-rated hostels, this is the worst one I've stayed at. No fan in the bathroom and horrible circulation in the room. It was hot all day and night and the hostel made no effort to enforce its quiet policy, so we heard the people smoking in front of the hostel all night long. The internet didn't work in the room and wasn't much better in the lobby. For this price, there should really be air conditioning, or at least ceiling fans!

Hey there! Thank you very much for your feedback! Every feedback helps us to improve our service:-) Yes, we had a terrible heat wave we normally don´t experience in Austria and we have now increased our stock of fans (and now it is back to 22 degrees and "normal Austrian summer":-/ ). Our receptionists are really trying to reduce the noise level , but sometimes drunk people forget from one second to the other that they are supposed to be quiet, we are very sorry for that!!!!

The usual good stay at a wombats hostel. Clean, comfy and well appointed. My only complaint was that neither fan in our room worked so it was a bit toasty in the 8 bed dorm at night. Solid place overall though.

It's more like a hotel than a hostel, but it's really nice, the staff is very helpful and the rooms very clean..

Wombats was AMAZING! The WomBar was great for getting to know People, and there were lots of great people to meet, access to a kitchen was clutch. The only Thing is the rooms were extremely hot and there was no air conditioning, but they did provide towels for showers that had great water pressure. The lobby was also a very cool spot to hang out, chill and get to meet people. 5/5!

My sister and I had a great time at this hostel. It was very clean and easily accessible by the train. The Internet was a little sketchy in the rooms but wasn't too bad. We really like hanging out in the bar and common room and meeting other travelers. Absolutely would recommend this hostel!

There was no air conditioning, and the staff was very unwilling to provide additional fans to alleviate the heat. The hostel was fun but limited food and beverage variety. Good location.

Thank you very much for your review. We are currently struck by a heat wave we never had before in Austria, so now we bought a lot of extra fans!!! Air-condition we don´t offer due to sustainability reasons. Lots of greetings from hot Vienna:-) your wombat´s team
