Vienna Wombat’s The Lounge Hostel Review30 July, 2009
Vienna Wombat’s the Lounge Hostel
Wombat’s is the choice for most backpackers in Vienna. The interior is a rainbow of pastel colours which immediately liven up the reception, bar, corridors and rooms. We stayed there for 2 nights in a 4-bed ensuite room. The environment in the hostel was friendly and at the same time secure. You are issued with keycards which grant you access to a cluster of 4-5 rooms and also your room. There are also lockers provided in the room – big enough to put your backpacks in.
There are lifts here too – so no heavy lifting + the hostel is just a 5-min walk from the Westbahnhof U-Bahn and also the Westbahnhof international train terminal (convenient for us since we need to leave quite early : 6am)
You get a free welcome drink for your stay at the basement bar which is very happening but don’t worry – the noise did not reach our rooms so we had a good night sleep too.
There are 2 branches of Wombat’s Hostel in Vienna -the Base and the Lounge (where we stayed). The Base is further from Westbahnhof compared to the Lounge.
