Info & Description

'The desired residence of the savvy backpacker... This hostel's clean, modern rooms have won it favourable reviews from all quarters.' (Lonely Planet)


This is our 1st Wombats, opened in 1999 by Sascha , Marcus and 5 staff members - but it´s by no means 'old': every single piece of furniture has been replaced at least once, all bathrooms got a complete renovation, the bar and breakfast room a major facelift and new common space has been added in the building next door.
Get to know the place from which the Wombats spirit set out for international fame, conquering travellers' hearts. The sun terrace is the big plus here - a brilliant out-door zone during daytime, it turns into bar area in the evening!


PLEASE NOTE: The rates given on this site DO NOT INCLUDE BREAKFAST. An all-you-can-eat continental buffet brekkie costs EUR 3.70. You don´t need to 'reserve' breakfast, just come round to the reception in the morning if you are hungry.


The five reasons why Wombats City Hostels became a destination by their own right:

Best Cleanliness
Unfortunately 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.

Most Amenities
We are centrally located and close to the trains and public transport. All our rooms come with comfy wooden beds, private shower & toilet facilities and lockers for your belongings. You´ll get a free set of bedlinen, a free welcome drink, wifi for free use (in the lobby), a guest kitchen for free use and our self-made free city map with all essential information about the goings-on in town.
We offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast, our lively womBAR serves cheap drinks and food, internet terminals, laundromats, 24 hours reception service and - of course - no age limit, no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules.

The Hostel from travellers for travellers
We have travelled the world ourselves - so we know from first hand what you are doing and what you expect from us. We care for you and we care for your feedback.

Best social Atmosphere
We make sure that you will feel safe and welcome here. When you have 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 a traveller stayed quite a bit longer than primarily intended.

Wombats is not dirt cheap
You may find an even cheaper place to crash in town, but none where you get more value for your money.

We are looking forward to welcoming you !


PLEASE NOTE: no check-in before 2pm (we need to clean the rooms first!) You may leave your stuff with the reception though and come back later.

  4. Renata From Poland On September 12, 2014

    breakfast fine, room quite nice, with bathroom with bathtube :) if someone wants to sightsee town to the late evening and after that go to sleep and room is on the 1st floor, this is impossible due to the noise from bar on the ground...

  6. Joshua From Canada On May 31, 2014

    A very well-run hostel. Their Vienna Guide was excellent, and AWESOME cheap breakfasts. A bit of a hike from the main drag, but great public transport. We had a wonderful time. :)

  13. Károly From Hungary On March 12, 2013

    The staff is excellent. They are very helpful, and kind! I think six person in one room is too much, and it was strange for me, the rooms are sex mixed. The prices are incredible good! Congratulations for your hostel! Faber karoly
