We booked room for 2, it wasn't perfectly clean, but other things were ok - bad, heating, wardrobe. The staff is very good - good English, friendly, our rooms were ready so we checked in an hour earlier. There are a lot of bonuses in the hostel - lounge zone with sofas, books, billiard and computers, own bar, cheap breakfast....

I stayed here for two nights, and the room I stayed in was a dorm of 6, and it was a full-house! Everyone in the room was friendly too, so it kinda helped with the homesickness haha the location is convenient too, not too far from the tube station (3-5mins walk), a shared in-room bathroom, they even have a kitchen...

Big spacious room, we were in a 4 bed, was pretty private to the other bunk. Roomy and clean ensuite. Location was good and walkable to everything. Bar downstairs is super cool, you get a drink on arrival and we used the laundry which was really handy and worked well. Great stay!

Certainly will come again, but not for more than two days. Loud, but that's people, you'll get the jerks everywhere, but we could really hear and feel the washing machines and music from bast. Clean, safe. Bar is good not that much, great to get a beer or two and chillax, but nothing extra. Breakfast for 4,5 euro? Cereals and...

We drove to Vienna and it wasn't hard to find this place. Even though parking space was not provided but we managed to find a parking spot in front of the building.

The hostel is too big, there is no 'home' atmosphere. Also, the kitchen and eating area were really filthy all the time. Not really confortable to eat there with l the bad smells. The chill area was dirty as well. The rooms were okay- clean.

Wombats is located on Maria Hilfe Straße, next to Westbanhof station and also with a good number of tram lines nearby. You can walk up this street to get to the city's historical central area or walk down to Schönbrun Schloss (either way it'll take you around 20min). They have a keycard to access the hallway, the room and also...
