Come with us for a quick tour through the new hostel!

Welcome! The main entrance…

… the reception…

… the outdoor terrace…

… the dorms with the brandnew multifunctional bunkbeds…

… and the breakfast area.

Back to opening eve with womBEATS presenting Paula Carolina live…

… And Shane Ó Fearghail & The Host – As The Music Program’s Host.

Wombat’s City Hostel Munich Werksviertel features a cozy womBAR…

… with selected products from our partners Georg Grohs (Wieninger Wine) and Mike Neureither (Ottakringer Brauwerk).

It’s toasted, baby! Wombat’s great selection of signature toasts is waiting for you in Munich Werksviertel!

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.

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


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 Travelers”, 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.


Marcus & Sascha + team at Wombat’s City Hostel Vienna

& the entire teams at…

It’s a weird holiday season coming up. Even though there are lots of restrictions, there are still places where a new normal can be found and where you can enjoy some Christmas kitsch and mulled wine during your city trips.

London: Christmas By The River

Just a 15 minute walk away from our Wombat‘s The City Hostel London (across Tower Bridge!) you can enjoy one of London’s most instagrammable Christmas markets! “Christmas By The River” is set against stunning views of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.

It’s the perfect location for a nice stroll between wooden huts packed with original presents, handmade crafts and plenty of delicious food offerings. A steaming cup of mulled wine will help you enjoy the humid London winter beside to the River Thames.

Of course, the whole city of London is sprinkled with Christmas markets during the holiday season. Some highlights include Covent Garden Christmas Village (with igloo style dining!), Southbank Market (with view of Big Ben on the other side of the Thames) and the festively decorated historical Borough Market.

London By The River is open until January, 2nd.

Budapest: Comeback of City’s Tradition

This year, to save me from tears… Budapest has reopened its Christmas Markets after las year’s cancellations due to Corona.

Christmas Markets in Budapest have a strong tradition and are considered among the most beautiful markets in Europe. As they attract hundreds of thousands of tourists each year, you can imagine how important the events are for the city and its population. In order to be able to open the markets’ doors, the city has decided to restrict entry to only vaccinated and recovered persons.

One of Budapest’s most popular and beautiful markets is Advent Bazlica on St Stephan’s. Here, you’ll find a spectacular setting, great atmosphere and an all-day program for all family members.

Advent Bazilika (open until January, 1st) is just a 10 minute walk away from our Wombat’s The City Hotel Budapest!

Munich & Vienna: Please Stand By

Vienna hast just reopened its doors after a 2-weeks-lockdown. Wombat’s City Hostel Vienna is open for bookings from Dec. 27th!

Munich has cancelled all Christmas Markets but outdoor gastronomy is still open (for vaccinated and recovered individuals). Of course, some boundaries are blurred, as is the case for Viktualienmarkt which is currently still open and decorated. You are always safe to have a good night drink at Wombat’s The City Hostel Munich “Hauptbahnhof” ;-) Of course, we will keep you posted about the Corona-related developments in these cities.

Stay safe!
