Every first Tuesday of the month, renowned performers as well as exciting newcomers await you live in our City Hostels. Enjoy surprising musical encounters with free admission!

About July’s womBEATS Artist Mark Peters:

Singer-Songwriter equals Folk music? Nope. Londoner Mark Peters incorporates influences from Nick Drake to Radiohead, in a style that bears not only the unmistakable imprint of Folk & Jazz, but also blends elements of Rock, Blues and Funk. He is also one of those rare performers with both impressive guitar skills and the songs to match.

Peters is clearly a musician who will attract a wide array of listeners to our Wombat’s family.

On July 5, Mark Peters will perform at our City Hostel Vienna Naschmarkt (start 20:30), musically welcomed by the great Irish singer-songwriter and womBEATS host Shane Ó Fearghail. Surprise guests are – like always – quite likely… ;-)

We are looking forward to welcoming you to this wonderful womBEATS event!

“A Quiet Year” – that’s the title of Agnès brand new album, which has just been released. For our part, we at Wombat’s are not looking forward to a quiet year with our new music initiative womBEATS:

Every first Tuesday of the month, renowned performers as well as exciting newcomers await you live in our City Hostels. Enjoy exciting musical encounters with free admission!

On June 7, Agnès Milewski will perform at our City Hostel Vienna Naschmarkt (start 20:00), musically welcomed by the great Irish singer-songwriter and womBEATS host Shane Ó Fearghail. Surprise guests are quite likely… ;-)

About womBEATS Artist Agnès Milewski:

Agnès has been a fixture on the Austrian singer-songwriter scene for years. Four albums and one EP released have brought the gifted singer and pianist to extensive concert tours throughout Europe. She skillfully combines the singer-songwriter tradition with pop music, sophisticated lyrics, and unusual instrumentation in her music, happier to be hopping generic boundaries and subverting expectation rather than nailing her colours to anyone stylistic mast. Whether it’s in her touching ballads alone at the piano or the rock number with her live band “A Mile Of Sky” – she wanders through the same plaintive piano soundscapes as Tori Amos and the more commercially friendly end of the Kate Bush heyday as easily as she delivers an alt-folk vibe or a haunted pop atmosphere, always crowned by her crystal- clear and irresistible Voice.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to this wonderful womBEATS event!

Good things come to those who wait. After delays caused by both coronavirus and a burst water pipe on the construction site (which didn’t harm anyone except the schedule), the time has come – Wombat’s City Hostel Munich Werksviertel is finally opening its doors on 5 May 2022.

No one is more excited than us, that’s why Wombat’s will celebrate this significant day together with friends & family, partners & guests, travellers & locals.

It’s only right to commemorate our new hostel the Bavarian way, and so, we will begin with a keg-tapping at 3pm with Werner Fuchs (Hofbräu) and the two founders of Wombat’s, Marcus and Sascha.

Then it’s time for a stroll through the new house. Check out the eclectic design of our vibrant common areas, stylish café/bar and our cosy new rooms. Also on view are our brand-new multifunctional bunkbeds with integrated luggage locker, personal safe, reading lamp with mobile phone charger/holder, fan and curtains for complete privacy.

To introduce Wombat’s new gastro concept, a series of tastings are on the programme:

  • Mike Neureiter, Wombat’s creative partner and head of Vienna’s “Brauwerk” will pour and discuss Wombat’s very own craft beer “Wavebreaker
  • Get to know our cider partners at BlakStoc Cider with Karl Karigl
  • Latte Art – Grandmaster Benji Graf will use professional hardware from “La Cultura del Café” to conjure up frothy creations from our own Wombat’s Roast
  • All this will be accompanied by biodynamic wines from Vienna’s Wieninger winery and gourmet toast creations from our new bar menu

More about the products & partners here.

Crowning the day (and beginning the night) we will introduce our brand-new music and culture initiative womBEATS (more to come this year). We have live music from 20:00 courtesy of Irish singer-songwriter Shane Ó Fearghail & The Host (see photo above) as well as special (local) guest Karin Rabhansl.

Finally, DJ XTOPH will guide you from the open house into the open-ended party.


Stay tuned for more womBEATS to come in 2022!

Peace – мир

Earlier this week, the UK said farewell & cheerio to most of the Covid-Restrictions imposed on the country. No more mask mandates, events and nightlife are back – welcoming everybody with doors wide open!

From February 11th onward, fully vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to present a negative COVID-19 test, let alone quarantine – more details on that here.

Naturally this comeback will be celebrated in our Wombat’s City Hostel London as well –

Rather than organizing secret parties with Boris in Downing Street, why not stay with us and do it on the books!  😉 Our womBAR, created for this very purpose, is open to you from Thursday – Saturday, 6PM – 01:30AM.

If you want to take part in the grand re-awakening of the metropolis that is London we have something special in store for you:

You know how our website has the best rates across all platforms anyways? Well, book a stay with us before February 20th and get an extra 15% off using voucher code LONDONCALLING! Valid for all bookings in 2022 😃

A quick outlook on what awaits visitors coming to London this spring:

THE event in February is undoubtably the London Fashion Week taking place from February 18-22. Tons of live-shows, celebrities and consequently glitz and glamor are guaranteed.

It also looks like St Patrick will be able to have a proper comeback this year! The dates for the party including a festival with free performances at Trafalgar Square, tons of irish food and drinks are not carved in stone yet but will take place on one of the weekends around March 17th – stay tuned.

Another free attraction to visit this spring is Battersea Power Station, one of the largest brick buildings in Europe, which serves as an incredible backdrop for this year’s Light Festival 2022 – on for another month until February 27th.



Spectacular light shows, the unforgettable location and a fantastic gastronomic scene (Tapas, Gordon Ramsay Street Pizza, Urban Wine & Craft Beer, you name it!) make Battersea Power Station a definite must-see.

As Wombat’s City Hostel London is perfectly connected with public transportation, even Battersea Power Station is almost around the corner and just a 45 minutes ride. For those of you who don’t feel like taking the Tube to get there – why not consider a ride on UberBoat Line RB6!


As we have all learned by now, long-term plans are something to be careful with at the moment but being the fearless optimists that we are, we’ve plucked up the courage to give you a preview.

WomBeats

This initiative starting in 2022 aims to further strengthen the – already rather strong – bond Wombat’s has with the international music scene. To further emphasize our cultural responsibility we will not only offer discounted “Shelter for Music Travellers”, but also host live shows and even tours by singer-songwriters across our houses.

Our guests are guaranteed some reliably unexpected entertainment – no admissions charge of course.

womBAR

Our new womBar-Concept has already successfully been implemented in Vienna, and next up is our City Hostel London. Starting within the next couple of months we will be shouting it from rooftops there as well: “It’s toasted, Baby!”

Speaking of food & drinks – The already legendary Wavebreaker, our very own Collab-Brew with the Viennese Ottakringer brewery is currently being bottled!

This time around we have created a very palatable, slightly fruity Ale with Guarana as an energy source for eventful nights ;-) Available at your nearest Wombat’s City Hostel soon…

Tasty Breakkie

At the end of a long night, or the beginning of a long day – two situations all too familiar to people traveling– you need a proper breakfast. A breakfast for people who are hungry for life.

It is exactly those people who will love our new Tasty Brekkie. Classic or vegan with fresh, regional ingredients and a modular setup. At our Wombat’s City Hostel in Vienna we’re currently working on the last small fine-tunings and are expecting to be able to offer our new breakfast concept in our other houses starting in the second quarter of 2022.

The same is true for our Wombat’s Café. In Vienna, we’re already enjoying our Signature Wombat’s Roast and cozy atmosphere. Starting soon, our Viennese coziness-export will be available in our City Hostel London and City Hostel Budapest.

Munich Werksviertel

Our highlight in 2022 however… *drumroll*…… the long-awaited opening of our Wombat’s City Hostel Munich “Werksviertel”. After pandemic and a construction site flooding just days before the initial opening date we’re pretty confident we will actually make it happen this time – Unless Godzilla himself is blocking our entry, that is.

Can’t wait to see you there!

This concludes a rough overview of Wombat’s in 2022 – so long as there’s no virus or anything forcing a change of plans. Here’s to a relaxed and joyful travel season in 2022. Let’s hope we’ll be able to celebrate in our new spacious “Schanigarten” in our Wombat’s City Hostel Vienna.

Cheers & stay safe!

Dear friends,

It was a year full of challenges and surprises, full of long-awaited embraces and painful goodbyes. The next year might not – but could definitely be better. We for one wouldn’t mind.

As we navigate through this mess, time and time again we come to realize:
Business is important, sure. But friends are more important and health, health stands above all else.
Because without health, what business is there to be done anyway?

The occasional party flare ups in 2021 showed us one thing – we still got it. And things will be like they used to, eventually.

We’ll stay the way we are. We will await you and look back on this crazy time together and full of relief. Here’s to being able to be crazy again – the way we want to.

With that said, we want to wish you all happy holidays, a merry Christmas and nothing but the best for the coming year!

We can’t wait to see you all again.
