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 3.80 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 lobby and bar as well as free travel guide books, free luggage storage, free condoms 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 an even 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.

From Westbahnhof:
For your orientation: when you're on the platform and walking towards the main hall, we're exactly on your right-hand side. So: try to exit the building in this direction; look for signs with 'Mariahilferstrasse'. Use the main exit, turn right and on the next street right again: this is Mariahilferstrasse; we're on the left side of it at number 137.

From Sudbahnhof:
This is partly closed down from DECEMBER 2009 due to construction work! Please check whether your train arrives at Sudbahnhof or its temporary substitute Wien Meidling!!

From Wien Meidling (replacement train station for Sudbahnhof ):
Take the underground line U6 until the stop Westbahnhof. Follow the signs 'Mariahilferstrasse' and walk Mariahilferstrasse. We are number 137.

From Sudbahnhof:

From Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof:
Take tram no. 5 to Westbahnhof. Left of the Westbahnhof train station is Aussere Mariahilfer Strasse. Follow Mariahilfer Strasse until no. 137.

From the Airport:
Fastest option: Taxi. Cost: about 35 EUR.
Most convenient option: the shuttle bus to Westbahnhof (8 EUR, buy ticket from driver).
Cheapest option: the S-Bahn (S7) to Wien Mitte and from there underground U3 to Westbahnhof (same ticket valid for both 4 EUR).

The 'City Airport Train' (CAT) is a few minutes faster than the S-Bahn, but costs 11 EUR- it also ends at Wien Mitte, from where you'll have to catch the U3 underground to Westbahnhof. The CAT ticket is not valid for the U3!

Shuttle bus (Vienna Airportlines):
The bus will drop you off right in front of the main entrance of the train station. Standing in front - Westbahnhof behind you - turn right and walk half way around the train station. That'll lead you to Mariahilfer Strasse. Look to your left and you can already see the Wombat's on the opposite side of the street.

S-Bahn or CAT and U3:
Get off the U3 at Westbahnhof, then take the exit 'Aussere Mariahilfer Strasse'. Once up there, continue walking until no. 137 on the left-hand side of the street.
