        Really good spot, with kitchen and places to sit. Rooms were massive, beds were comfy

        Pretty decent for a backpackers. Big rooms with private bathrooms, wifi everywhere although when 100 people try using it at once it suffers.

        We stayed at Wombats, which was certainly quite good. A pretty decent location, a massive bar, huge facilities and simply letting us check in at 8am after the overnight train - that's a win in my books. Additionally, I printed off about 60 pages of documents for free which I was stoked about.

        Cheap, spacious rooms, cool bar/chill out area. The only thing is that wireless is on the groundfloor only (free but) and breakfast is not included. It is also a little further from the train station than the other wombat but it is cheaper. Nice cheap place to stay in Vienna...recommend the citybikes as well, good way to get around.

        Quite a walk from the train station and the nearest U-Bahn station, the Wombats Hostel can be difficult to find. Adding to the problem, is that there are 2 Wombats Hostels in Vienna, in the same area. So you have to double check that you found the right one, when walking to it, which can be tough, especially if you just arrived into town, and trying to find your way around.

        One of the Wombats is called The Lounge, while the other one is called The Base. The Lounge is much closer to the train station, but cost a little more. This review will focus more on The Base, which was the one I stayed at. The Base will save you a few euros, which to me, can be a big difference to me.

        Being further away can also be a problem, for those after a day of sightseeing, and having sore feet. While the tram can help you get there halfway from the U-Bahn station, you will still have to walk down one quiet street for about a few blocks until you hit the end. Luckily, there is a sign outside, showing you where the hostel is. The nearest restaurant or grocery store is on the busy street, about a few blocks away.

        Entering the hostel, definitely gives the vibe of a party hostel, and it probably is, with the bar there. But it was not really a problem for me, and I'm not a party person. The staff are really nice and sometimes, fun to talk to. And very helpful, whenever you need information on train schedules or sightseeing questions. Reception is open 24 hours.

        The rooms are very nice and clean, with each one having their own bathroom. And being away from the busy street, it was not nearly as noisy as I thought it would be. There are lockers in the room, with a key for it, at no extra charge, and no need to being your own lock.

        The kitchen is on the same floor as the bar, with tables nearby to eat or just sit and do whatever. Plus that is where all-you-can-eat breakfast is served, which is nice, but cost EUR 3.50. When checking in, you receive a coupon for a free beer.

        There are a few computers for internet access near the staff desk, and a few more in the bar. But they are not free.

        Overall, this is a very nice place to stay at, with the distance from the station being the only issue.
