Wombats City Hostels were voted as best hostel chain worldwide in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 by guests who booked through this site. We kindly thank every single one of them. We promise to keep it up!
Let's Go Europe said we are a 'Brand-new hostel, immaculate rooms, in-the-know staff'.
Our state-of-the-art building has an imperial facade dating from 1880 - be where technology meets tradition and let us meet your expectations!
We're centrally located and close to the trains and public transport, right on Mariahilferstrasse, the longest shopping street in Vienna, only 50 metres away from the Westbahnhof railway station.
All our rooms come with comfy wooden beds, private shower and toilet facilities. Rates include free bed sheets and towels and there's free lockers in every room.
Our lounge is a giant comfort zone with all standards and extras you need to relax, get informed, communicate, socialize and chill. Our lively Wombar serves cheap drinks and food but is beneath sound-proof brick vaults in the basement, so no noise will keep you from having a good night's sleep.
Cooking some dinner? There's free pasta, tea, coffee, spices and more in our guest kitchen. Please note that our rates don't include breakfast. An all-you-can-eat continental buffet brekkie costs 4.50 EUR. You don't need to reserve breakfast; just come around to the reception in the morning if you're hungry.
The five reasons why wombats city hostels became a destination by their own right is because we have the best cleanliness, the most amenities, the best social atmosphere, we're not dirt cheap and we're the hostel from travellers for travellers.
Cleanliness is not something to take for granted in many other hostels, but we do take this seriously: we have won the 'cleanest hostel worldwide' award. Twice.
We offer maximum security with smartcard access for the front door, the floors, the rooms and your locker.
There's free Wi-Fi in the whole house as well as free travel guide books, free luggage storage and a free welcome drink. Other facilities include internet terminals and laundry.
We also have loads and loads of free brochures about tours, sights, accommodation and other destinations in Europe, plus free maps of Vienna, Munich and Berlin.
Reception is open 24hrs and there's no age limit, no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules. We've travelled the world ourselves - so we know first-hand what you're doing and what you expect from us. We care for you and we care for your feedback.
We make sure that you will feel safe and welcome here. When you've been on the road all day long, seeing sights and walking and walking, it's cool to have a nice scene at the hostel where you can have some beers, talk and make friends. This will make your stay a memorable one! Many traveller stayed quite a bit longer than primarily intended.
You may find a cheaper place to crash in town, but none where you get more value for your money.
We look forward to welcoming you!
Please note that you need to be at least 16 years old (with written confirmation of your parents) in order to stay in our hostel.
