wombats CITY HOSTEL Vienna “THE NASCHMARKT”

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2012

The hostel was very clean and tidy. The ensuite bathrooms were nice to have and there were cool people staying in the hostel. The bar downstairs is pretty cool and the bartenders were really friendly. The staff at the front desk though, they were extremely helpful and friendly. The included breakfast was pretty good as well.

Spacious rooms, nice atmosphere, very clean, good location. There was a relatively cheap and very nice breakfast available. The Wombar is a bit corny, but o course it was still fun. Overall this is a fantastic hostel and I was very happy we decided to stay here. Thankyou!

Good value for money (15€ per night), bar/nightclub was great! Staff was very friendly and our room was clean and spacious. Its very close to the metro station and there are restaurants and grocery stores all around you!

I have been pleasantly surprized by the Wombat group of Hostels overall... great value for money, clean and friendly atmosphere. This became part of my backup plan for Vienna, Berlin and Budapest. They always had accommodation options available and never killed my credit card. The free Wi-Fi access and free breakfast for every second day convinced me to return in future. One needs to remember that this is a value for money Hostel and not a luxury hotel… in order for the true value to surface. It was also one of the best hostels I visited in Europe.

We stayed in Vienna City Hostel in October 12. Overall it was a good experience. The rooms were large and came with key card lockers to store your things. We had an 8 bed dorm with an ensuite and in most cases the shower was clean and also the toilet.
The bar downstairs was great, it had a loungey bar feeling; probably one of the best bars in a hostel I have ever been to.
The kitchen however was tiny and definitely not large enough for the amount of people staying there. It was always dirty, almost one of the dirtiest kitchens I've been too. I know it's an unwritten rule that travellers wash up their own dishes however in other hostels I've stayed at the kitchens are usually cleaned by staff every now and then. They definitely need another sink as there was only one there.
The location was ideal, could have been better but out of the three wombats in Vienna.
It's about 15-20 minutes walk to the centre of Vienna (St. Stephen's Platz).
Supermarkets line the streets around the hostel itself and is about 2 minutes from the metro.
The hostel provided an amazing array of traveller information the the boards near the reception.
The hostel also provided a free walking tour which was decent and there wasn't even any pressure to tip.

I stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed my stay here. For a hostel, this is definitely one of the best I've stayed in thus far.

The building is nothing to look at, but when you enter you notice the big lobby, which has a cool, casual vibe to it. Spend 0.50 Eur to surf the internet, or use your own devices for free wi-fi. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and their local map/quick guide to Vienna is extremely handy. For example, of the 5 restaurants that are on the recommended list inside their guide, two of them had been recommended to me by other locals.

The rooms are nice and clean. No issues. I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm.

Location is amazing. Next to an outdoor market, and within walking distance of major attractions in the heart of Vienna.

Would definitely highly recommend this to other budget travellers.
