Recently stayed here for 2 nights and wish it could have been longer! The staff here were friendly, helpful, and up for a party! The manager is hilarious and the bar staff are champions! We intended to have a few drinks and then head elsewhere, but we had so much fun and got so rowdy that we never made it... More

We booked a 6 females dorm and got upgrade to 4 females dorm, which was a very good starter. The view from my room was not good, but who cares about the room when you can go explore the fascinating city. The room was tidy, the toilet was clean, everything was good enough for the price. The downside was that... More

Its definitely a good cost benefice hostel, staff is really nice and friendly, and breakfast is really good. this wombats is a bit inferior as the ones in munich and budapest, and you'll have difficults to charge your eletronics because there's very few spread in the walls. For the girls: there's no hairdryer in the rooms, not sure if they... More

This was our first hostel experience ever. The Base was about a 10-15 minute walk from the Metro (the other Wombat is closer to the Metro and on the main street, but seemed much louder and more of a party scene). We have been living in Prague for a month and decided to take a week to travel, Vienna being... More

Location is quite nice and it is not far from U Bahn. When we got there guy at the reception was quite busy and nervous, so we needed to ask few times about one thing, because we were not clear about it.

Decent enough Hostel, clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. Only issues are there €3.90 breakfast is quite frankly crap. Most other hostels allow you unlimited tea and coffee gratis. Also, with most 'big' hostels the chance to get in to use the kitchen is near to an impossible task, unless you have a gun and are willing to... More

Great place close to Westbahnhof, a shopping mall, underground and tram connections. It's a bit out of town on foot, but food and services are definitely cheaper here than in the posh tourist-packed downtown areas. If you want a place to be the base for your trips out of town, this is the perfect low-budget option. It has a nice... More

I had a lovely time there, the staff is very nice and they give you a free drink when you check in. The rooms are very clean and organize, but there's only two plugs in room of 8 people. Showers are nice and big. The hostel is near the metro line but you can walk to most parts of the... More
