Nice hostel with an awesome pub. Nov 29, 2010
We took a 4 bed room. It was clean, spacious with 2 bunk beds. The room had a table with 4 chairs where you could do writing/eat/drink on. A cupboard with 4 partitions which can be locked is also available. The reception area is huge with friendly staff, an internet cafe and lots of couches. The basement has a pub called "the wormbar" which is probably better than most sports bars i've been to. It's got a happy hour between 6-8pm which has beer for 1 euro so do not miss that!

Wombar de Ba Bar Dec 05, 2010
The quality of Wombat's hostels is superior. In terms of the facilities and amenities that are avalible, Wombat's is a top marsupial! The cost is just slightly over the average for a central/west European hostel but it is worth the extra little bit of cash. The hostel has a friendly yet professional feel, quality is assured. The rooms are kept clean, the bar is well stocked (it stocks tabasco sauce, a rarity!) and the bathrooms are of a good quality.

All in all, Wombat's holds a very good reputation for a very good reason, go visit it!

Good youth hostel Nov 19, 2009
I stayed in Wombat’s Lounge on a weekend trip to Vienna. I thoroughly enjoyed the hostel. The place was very well run and kept really clean, which is always nice! The breakfast was decent and the bar downstairs was great. The hostel is a bit of a walk from the inner-ring, but thankfully, there is a U-bahn stop on the corner (westbahnhoff) that is also a train station if I remember correctly.. Mariahilfer Strasse runs right to the downtown area. There are a lot of shops and restaurants on this street, but they kind of peter out as you get to the hostel. The neighborhood looked a little unlit at night, but I walked through it anyway without any problems.

The front desk suggested a place right around the corner for typical Austrian food. It was ok, but not great. The price was nice though because of the discount you get for staying at Wombat’s. I had seen an ad in the hostel for a place called Centimeters. I recommend it a lot more. Definitely worth it!

There is not really anything bad I can say about this hostel, so you should definitely check it out!

The Wombats is probably one of the better known and most popular hostel in Vienna, Austria.

I've recommended it to numerous people and have checked it out myself several times.

It's very clean, neat and very well presented.

The staff are very friendly and have good access to lots of information.

There is a good kitchen, lounge, popular bar and lots of other facilities.

The hostel is also very well located just behind Westbahnhof. This is a major train station in and out of Vienna and there is a good chance you will be arriving here if coming by train from the north or west.

The hostel is also on Mariahilfer strasse which is a very popular and busy shopping street. From here you can easily walk (15minutes) or catch the undergroung (2minutes) into the city centre.

The prices are also reasonable!

Enjoy your stay in Vienna!
