I don’t know why Vienna was not on my travel bucket list. And after I visited the city I felt sorry for not going there earlier. The occasion was the Nova Rock festival. Many favourite bands were playing so a 2 days stopover to Wien was inevitable.
Location & Address : Wombats City Hostel – Mariahilfer Strasse 137,Vienna. Mariahilfer is a very, very long street in Wien so if you start to look for the hostel at the other end, let’s say that we will lose some pounds. It’s 5 minutes from the main train station in the capital of Austria -Westbahnhof. The location is a good one, close to the city centre and the main touristic sites.
Atmosphere & Facilities: Again, again a hostel with a bar downstairs. I must promise to myself that if I have ever opened a hostel, definitely will be with a bar! The bars are an excellent way to meet travelers and for solo travelers like me it’s perfect!
So I was saying the hostels have a lovely and a huge bar downstairs, a pool table, a common room where you can sit and relax after hard shopping day on Maria Street, tea/Coffee Making Facilities and of course free internet. It’s the perfect hostel regarding the offered facilities.
Having a bar does not mean that it is a noisy hostel; not at all; it’s very well divided.
Cleanness & Rooms: 10 out of 10 for both! Rooms are very big. The problems with the hostels is not the room size, but it’s about the number of beds you put in a room. Don’t put too many dears just for the sake of profit!
Services and prices : breakfast is not included but you can have it extra and it’s very consistent and the price is not that big.
The 8 Bed Mixed Dorm price is 10 euro per night, the 6 Bed Mixed Dorm is 15 euro and if you want a bed in a double room you have to pay 29 euro. Excellent prices for a hostel in Wien.
Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. For example, I wanted to sell a ticket to Novarock festival, they put a poster with my dad and they even came to my room to inform me I am having a buyer!
Recommendation : 9,5/10.
