Pictures of wombats CITY HOSTEL Vienna "The Base"
Welcome @ wombats CITY HOSTEL Vienna "The Base"
If to you this looks like a regular blue building, let me tell you that you are mistaken: this is the wonderful, legendary and "forever-in-our-hearts base-camp" of all wombats CITY HOSTELs ever being built. Also, this seemingly non-so-spectacular front comprises the much spoken of and well-renowned womExperience! Exclusively here - on the top level, our two crazy owners have their crazy office to come up with new crazy ideas – of all wombats, this is the one you shouldn’t miss!
A 6-bed room
Here you can see what our rooms look like BEFORE a bunch of travellers has moved in. It can drastically change its outlook once everyone unpacked their backpacks … (it might even change its smell … well, I said might). All rooms come with lockers, a shower and a toilet, and you can choose your preferred category, which is either mixed, girlie or private. Our girlie bathrooms come with hair dryer and a separate beauty-mirror, private rooms have a wardrobe instead of lockers!
A private room
If you refuse to listen to just anybody’s snoring, you can take one of our comfortable private rooms and occupy it with one other person whose snoring does not estrange you as much because you also know the person during the day. It also comes with a private bathroom and toilette and we have twin and double beds to choose from.
Our lobby is the place to meet, greet and socialise with those you haven’t yet know and those you know so well, they had to stay back home – your family! Use our surf stations or WiFi access for this purpose, or even give them a call from our traditionally British-looking phone box. Use our info-wall to get informed about Vienna’s sightseeing hot-spots, events and some of its hidden attractions. As well, you find our lovely reception here and our “partners”, coffee and other self-vending machines – snacks, drinks, womShirts, womTowels, womCondoms and emergency beauty kits are on offer 24/7 down here.
Enjoy its peace during day time, but don't even think about bringing a book in the evenings, as it is part of the womBar. You can do the same things as mentioned in the bar here, only that we ask you one more thing not to be doing up here - don't water the flowers :) our staff is taking care of this (take this in as you wish). Also, it is a perfect lost and found section as it is adjacent to many rooms - look for your lost towel, shoe or friend here in the first place.
Breakfastbuffet at wombats
Our buffet offers a variety of yummy things and the best thing about it is that you can have as much as you want once you’ve purchased your ticket for € 3,70 at the reception. No need to pre-book, just do this on your way to have breakfast – so you decide on the very day whether you prefer to cure your hangover from last night with food or sleep rather. But seriously, once you’ve enjoyed our selection, you would even get out of bed for it.
On offer are different sorts of coffee, tea and hot chocolate, bread, rolls, ham, salami, cheese and cheese spread, jam, honey, cereals, vegetables and fruit…see, how can you leave all of this to your fellow travellers – no way!

Our reception staff is a team of body language-experts, specialised in the field of helplessly looking travellers. But hey, they also SPEAK a variety of languages other than German, once you’ve mentioned your concern – so make use of it. They are there for you 24/7 and are always willing to find out for you what they haven’t yet know themselves! The rest they will be eagerly sharing with you anyway, because, gosh, who wants to keep all of this information locked up in one’s head! Finally, be warned about their travel adventure archive – for each story you tell them they will have a variety of related topics in store to tell back to you! They’ve seen it all!
If you travel light you can use one of our many surf stations to read or write your emails and have a look at what’s going on worldwide. Feed the surf station a 50 cents coin and it will provide you with 20 minutes of internet access. Feed it 1 Euro and you will have 40 minutes provided. Here is now a quiz question – what happens if you feed it a 2 Euro coin? *lol* Sorry, but if you want this quiz question answered you have to pop by and try for yourself! Be informed that you cannot upload pictures from your camera here!
Our bar is very multi-functional. You can use it for all sort of activities, like drinking, eating, socialising, sleeping or dancing (also see guest pictures for further inspiration). There’s only one thing we ask you not to do in here … no, not that one, this we don’t mind – but please, don’t smoke.
Now, we picture a regular visit in the bar that is part of the womExperience we have been mentioning before:
1) You trade your voucher from checking in for a free drink to warm up, then you enjoy
2) Happy Hour from 6-8 p.m. (DAILY!), during which you drink
3) beer (a lot as it is cheap),
4) one or two cocktails, and then you try a
5) Jägermeister bomb. Suddenly
6) thinking that the music has never been so perfect and you never felt so sexy, you
7) dance on the bar, the
8) bar tender rewards you with a free shot, and
9) all your friends join in and you repeat procedure 5-8 till the bar closes down. Finally,
10) you realise that you missed out on all the good flirting and socialising that could have been done and that you haven’t even had a snack from the menu, so well, you will have to come back tomorrow …
