Wombats City Hostel Vienna- The Base

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Congrats, you found backpackers paradise (cf. Lonely Planet) at Wombats The Base!

This is the first Wombats and was opened in 1999 by Sascha and Marcus as a hostel by travellers for travellers.

We offer you great fun at our WomBar with daily HappyHours and special offers.

Tank yourself for the day at our all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet with a huge variety for only Euro 3,90,-.

Explore the city on your own (get hot spots and secret recommendations from our awesome staff) or join our free walking tours (we are the only hostel offering this service!).

There are no limits if you want to share your cooking skills with others, you can use our brand new kitchen from 12:00 lunchtime until 1:00 am.

All of our rooms are equipped with bunk beds, free bed sheets and an ensuite bathroom.

We also offer free towels & free wifi as well as some common areas.

Enjoy the sunny weather while meeting new friends on our cosy sun terrace above the bar.

Arrival is possible 24hours every day and we do accept cash and credit card for payment (visa, mastercard and maestro; minimum charge: Euro 10,-; no extra fee for credit card payment!).

Said to be the first Wombats, the only \'old\' part is the house itself as we renew our interior constantly.

So allow yourself a good time and visit us :)

There is all I need - simple rooms with showers, clean and quite close to bus station - unfortunately neighbours is not so friendly, there are many prostitutes at night between bus station and hostel.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A bit too commercial. Too many rules. For the money, great value. Good idea with the bar downstairs, pool table too. Rooms are ok, basic needs satisfied, toilet and shower are ok. The rest, just a matter of luck, considering the roommates you'll get. Good idea with key lockers for each guest in every room. I had a great time, but i'm still tempted to try smth else next time i plan my trip. Overall it's ok. Happy trips all!!!

This place was terribly hard to find.
I was wandering around looking at my map from every possible angle.
Finally got there.
Very very busy,with friendly staff but i think the place is too big.
Dorms about average.
it did have a good vibe though.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed here with another Travellerspoint member during the 2008 European Cup. The place had a good vibe and the staff was friendly. There's a nice bar on the first floor and the food we had was good (limited menu but that's to be expected imo) and well priced. There was a voucher for a free small beer too which never hurts :)

Location was great for us coming in off the train from Zurich. About 5 minutes walk from the station. There's actually a sister hostel of this one right across from the same station, so make sure you know which one you are booked into (unlike us who didn't have the address or phone number with us...).

I'm giving it 5 stars for facilities as our 4-bed room had a bathroom in it and we got free sheets. Not sure if the bathroom in the room is the norm, but they are available if you need them. Accessible via wheelchair and includes a lift.

Overall I'd have no hesitation recommending it.
