Congrats, you found backpackers paradise (cf. Lonely Planet) at Wombats The Base!
This is the first Wombats and was opened in 1999 by Sascha and Marcus as a hostel by travellers for travellers.

We offer you great fun at our WomBar with daily HappyHours and special offers.
Tank yourself for the day at our all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet with a huge variety for only Euro 3,90,-.

Explore the city on your own (get hot spots and secret recommendations from our awesome staff) or join our free walking tours (we are the only hostel offering this service!).

There are no limits if you want to share your cooking skills with others, you can use our brand new kitchen from 12:00 lunchtime until 1:00 am.

All of our rooms are equipped with bunk beds, free bed sheets and an ensuite bathroom.
We also offer free towels & free wifi as well as some common areas.

Enjoy the sunny weather while meeting new friends on our cosy sun terrace above the bar.

Arrival is possible 24hours every day and we do accept cash and credit card for payment (visa, mastercard and maestro; minimum charge: Euro 10,-; no extra fee for credit card payment!).

Said to be the first Wombats, the only 'old' part is the house itself as we renew our interior constantly.

So allow yourself a good time and visit us :)

Prices are per person per night.

++ From the AIRPORT ++
Most convenient is the shuttle bus to Westbahnhof (8 €, buy ticket from driver). The cheapest option is the S-Bahn to Wien Mitte and subway U3 to Westbahnhof. The ‘City Airport Train’ (CAT) is a few minutes faster than the S-Bahn, but also more expensive – 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 metro!

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. Follow Mariahilfer Strasse until no. 152 (corner Rosinagasse), turn right into Rosinagasse – Grangasse is the second street on the left.

S-Bahn or CAT and U3:
Get off the U3 at Westbahnhof, then take the exit 'Aussere Mariahilfer Strasse'. Once up there, follow Mariahilfer Strasse until no. 152 (corner Rosinagasse), turn right into Rosinagasse – Grangasse is the second street on the left.
