“Good Hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Pretty reasonable hostel. Staff were friendly and the hostel is close to several train stations. Good common room/area downstairs which is good place to hang out after you checked out. Rooms and facilities were clean.

I got a single room on the fly when my travel plans were derailed (literally -- problem with the train from Austria to Germany!). I was able to find accommodations here in a pinch. Wombat's is terrific because the front desk is knowledge and hip to young travelers: They speak English and have terrific advice for restaurants and things to do.

Wombats have everything you need: free internet, a place to hang, a place to sleep, etc. If you are hitting the essentials, this does well with a certain amount of charm.

The room was clean, spacious, and pretty quiet -- but I was lucky that my neighbours weren't rowdy. I heard their opening and closing of doors, so I can't speak to the sound proofing of rooms. The lounge is largely called this because the main floor has a great cushioned area -- a huge area -- where people can just hang out.

I was in a room that may have been designated for those with physical disabilities, so perhaps the room I had was larger than others. The washroom was tiled all over so it had a public washroom feel to it, but it was a private bath, so that's terrific.

The beds aren't super comfortable, but they do the job. It's a sparse room without a lot of furniture, minimal closet space. A bright room.

I would stay here again -- and, in fact, from this experience, I would look into staying at other Wombats as well.

Room Tip: For quieter, more comfortable stay, spring for the single rooms with private bath.

This hostel does a lot of things right, without really standing out in any one way. Wombats provides a reliable and comfortable service with their locations, this one is no different. The immediate area that surrounds the hostel is nothing too special, but It's right by the train station and within walking distance to the sights.The bar downstairs is nice and comfortable, and there is a lounge area in the lobby which I felt was a great addition.

I stayed here with 3 friends for 2 nights in a 6 bed mixed dorm. It was okay, but Vienna isn't really known for it's nightlife anyway so we didn't expect a big night. They have a hostel bar and they give you a free drink voucher on arrival which is great, but the bar isn't great and is quite dark, empty and has no atmosphere. The room was clean but on our second night we were put with a 65 year old man (we are a group of 18 year olds). We did choose the mixed dorm so it's not like we expected privacy, but we felt that the matching could have been done better to make it less awkward - maybe put him with other men or older people? I wouldn't call this a youth hostel, the workers are friendly but don't really get involved with you, it is more of a hotel atmosphere.

Well it is my second time here, my last time was at 2009.
I took the double room with the privet WC and shower, it was very small room, it is hard to move in and the closet in the room had no shelfs in it. This is not what i remembered...
The location is good, near the shopping area.
The service and atmosphere is very good, they have nice bar, the price was 58 EUR.

It is suitable more for youth that sleeps in dorms i think for them it is very good hostel, for my age it is average.

Being with a tour, this hostel stay was enjoyable as it was located amongst many attractions and sights to see in and around the area.

The staff were very friendly and helped out assisting with directions and advice about making the most of Vienna. There was quite a few things the hostel has to explore like the bar underneath and a chilled out lounge area.

Make the best of your stay and utilise the assistance of staff for any questions and advice.

Was really impressed with all of the wombats hostels, but i loved this one in vienna due to how close it is to the station and relatively close to some of the touristy areas. Staff were really friendly and great bar, would stay there again or any other wombats hostels
