Great Hostel. It's a large one, feels almost like a hotel upstairs. Our dorm room for 8 people was great, on two floors with a bathroom in the room and plenty windows looking out over the roof. Mix of double and single beds. Free welcome drink was a nice touch although we were out when the bar was open (after 6pm). Staff friendly and helpful, definitely recommend

Fantastic place

Very good location, very clean, would stay again. Nice, modern decor. Slight lack of unique character or socialising opportunities if that's what you were looking for but we thought it was perfect. The market is also brilliant and right outside with loads of nice food and trendy bars and restaurants at night.

Great time at a great place. Wombats does a great job of going above and beyond only drawback was the rooms were really hot with only a tiny AC fan. Didn't cool down until 1-2am.

The shower/bathroom in our room was not very clean and had a mildew smell to it

Stumbled upon Wombats online & instantly fell in love w it. Nachsmkt. has a great location - market just x the street, loads of great shops and places to hang out in the neighbourhood and it's barely a 2 mins walk from Karlsplatz. The hostel itself is a cool place to hang out. The lobby is VERY stylish and the staff is always friendly. ALWAYS. Pity we only spent 2 nights in Vienna, otherwise we would totally enjoy more of the Wbts lifestyle! Enjoyed! Thank you and see you again one day :)

Hostel was GREAT! So many excellent common areas to meet other solo travelers (really, this place is HUGE). Big kitchen to cook in, knowledgable staff, key card access. Felt more like a hotel, facility-wise, actually: They give you a fresh-from-the-cleaners bag of linens when you arrive, and a free towel! Naschmarkt is a good central location (& only a 15ish min walk from the opera house), there's a grocery (Hofer) next door, Karlsplatz metro stop is down the road! Had a blast! Don't hesitate :)

Great location. Staff are friendly and helpful. They put a lot of emphasis on cleanliness. Best kitchen facility I have seen in a hostel. I was lucky and upgraded to a 5 bed dorm after booking 8 person dorm.

Great location near the metro and Nachstmarkt. Helpful staff. Definitely need more bathrooms or separate toilet and shower rooms, especially in the 8 bed rooms (one bathroom was tough in the mornings). Bathrooms with at least toilets on each floor would be good. Bar was super hot but decent prices. Breakfast was standard, may be better to go into the market for food.

Really great hostel. Easy to meet people in the bar at night and the location is amazing right outside the Naschmarket. Only issue while there was they had constuction going on that pretty much took up all the common area. Overall great stay in a beautiful city.

Very good place to stay, I would highlight the facilities, very spacious, renovated, and comfortable. They have a big room with a bar where you can relax and have fun. Rooms are also large, but too much hot! I think fans aren't enough, they should have air conditioning. Location is not so close to city center, but you have a metro station just next to hostel.

I stayed at tis place for 2 nights! Very well-located and clean. I must complain, however, about two things. First, there are no computers available for use if you don't have a smartphone. Second, most of the staff memebers are friendly but there were two girls who were very unpolite and unfriendly.

Thank you very much for your Feedback! We will soon get one or two computers available for those who don´t have smartphones. Additionally I would really appreciate to get further feedback concerning the two girls (at what time did it happen?, what happened exactly?). Please feel free to write an email to sophie@wombats.eu:-) Best regards and hoping to welcome you soon again:-), your wombat´s team

The blowing in the bathroom was too noisy and made the sleeping hard. I think there should be no wifi in the comon room. The beauty of the youth hostels is the interaction between the people there. It's now impossible because of the smartphones.

Good value for the money. Location is fine. Not much in the area, need to take underground, but that's super easy. Only issue id's same as others have mentioned, the way the shower is in the bathroom it floods the floor and do the bcc bathroom floor and into the room is always wet. They have a squeegee and may, but make sure to bring shower shoes.

This was professionally managed. Perfect location across the street from the Naschtmarkt and a stop on the hop on/off bus. Very clean rooms, key card to get into your floor, your room as well as your assigned locker. Had a party vibe, staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. My only "concern" was no AC in the room(I dealt w/it) but no screens on the window. But no bug problem either. Highly recommend. €4.50 buffet breakfast available but gets eventually gets boring.

Could add fans to the rooms as it gets pretty hot in the rooms. Also bathroom needs to be more equipped. Rest everything is absolutely awesome!

Great hostel. Friendly competent staff. Clean rooms. Being renovated while I was there, but no major disruption. My only complaint is that my top floor room was very warm in the sunshine and did not have AC.
