Stayed here for a couple of nights before moving on to one of the other Wombats in Vienna when the rest of my friends arrived. Fantastic location, only a couple of minutes walk from the Westbahnhof for trains, u-bahn and tram and the shops of Mariahilferstrasse are not much further.
Kitchen facilities are clean and good, hobs, microwaves, fridges etc. for you to cook your own stuff if you wanted (couple of supermarkets next door or a short walk away in addition to the ones at the train station). Large dining area too and comfy lounge area in the lobby, plus a bar open in the evenings.
Free wireless throughout was good and it worked fine in the dorm room which was clean and the beds comfortable, as was the en suite shower and toilet. Only minor point would be the fact that the room I was in was on the corner of the building and so had windows along two sides and, although there are curtains, the people who were in the dorm with me seemingly had an aversion to closed curtains and so was woken up by sunlight streaming in as soon as it rose each morning. Could also do with a few more plug sockets really, only 3 for a 6-bed dorm when most people nowadays are travelling with an increasing number of electrical devices (when I arrived in the room, the person already in there was already using all of them!).
Liked the fact that rooms and lockers were accessed by the same key card.
