“Vienna trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

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.

This is a great little hostel. Just round the corner from the main train station Westbahnhof, there are also a large selection of shops, restaurants and street food vendors all along the same street. The rooms are spacious, clean and a real bonus of a having quality shower! The staff are really friendly and help me set up some great activities during my stay. The bar in the basement is a good venue to either start a night or to spend the night at, there is usually a theme and whilst I was there they had a decent live band.The breakfast is extra but well worth it, its an all you can eat buffet with a decent selection. I would defiantly stay here again.

To be honest i wouldn't recommend any other places. The hostel looks modern and the room is very clean. It is near the main train station (Westbahnhof) so it is very and convenient if you would like to catch a train to other cities such as Salzburg or Hallstatt. The price is good value, although it does not cover the breakfast. You have to pay a little extra if you want breakfast but the breakfast is GRAND and i think it worths the price paid and cheaper than eating outside. I would recommend this place.

Very good hostel! Great place to stay with very good location... close to public transportation (westbanhhof) main attractions, supermarkets and restaurants. A very good way to enjoy your staying at the Loung is walking around the nice area in your way to ringstrasse ;) that´s for me a very good oportunity to know Vienna very well.

Was a very nice hostel with good food & service, but the rooms weren't as nice as I would've hoped. They weren't the worst I've ever seen, but I didn't find them particularly comfortable either. With that said, was a very good hostel (although they made you pay extra for breakfast...).

Conveniently close to the U-Bahn station, this hostel stands out for both its cleanliness and excellent reception staff. The all-you-can-eat breakfast is great value with great quality. We are a mother and daughter travelling and we both felt at home because Wombats draws a good mix of the young and the young at heart from all walks of life. If we visit Vienna again, it would be Wombats again!

This place was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to be polite and helpful (calling the opera box office for me and then printing my tickets!). The rooms were clean and the common areas were open and inviting. Their bar in the basement was a great hang-out space with pool and big screen TVs. The breakfast buffet was a good deal too. Location was VERY convenient for travel and about a 15 minute walk into the center of the city. Definitely recommend!!
