It’s not common to everybody – some need a little help
Recently we have been sitting together at wombat’s head office and had a chat about good old times. 9 out of 11 officers have a vivid wombat’s history, having started at wombat’s as a receptionist or bartender. We all know how to hostel and how to travel. Everybody can come up with a silly story or with a top ten of stupid questions. It’s shocking how many people don’t know how to do the most basic things in life, when they are already out there exploring the globe. For years we have been wondering about people who came up to reception and tried to make us believe, that their duvets wouldn’t fit into their covers. Only to find out, that they tried to stuff them into the pillowcase. Once five guys came to the hostel bar paying drinks and cheering for a sixth guy, who turned out to be a Marine. Bartenders thought it was a stag do or a birthday party, but it turned out this guy just helped the others to make their bed, as they were struggling hard.
All of us had a moment when we were surprised by somebody in his twenties, confessing that he had never made his bed before. The tons of questions regarding laundry. Or more specific the simple use of a washing machine. Some guests attempted to bribe receptionists to do the laundry for them. We once had a guy who spent a whole day waiting in the lobby and everytime he noticed, that somebody was changing money for the laundry at reception, he jumped at them and asked if they could do his laundry too. He broke into tears when our receptionists kindly told him to do his laundry himself and even offered him detailed instructions. He was just too afraid to shrink his clothes.
How to travel
Yet there are also less particular questions and topics, that our fellow travellers need some explaination for. Questions like ‘How does public transport work here?’ or ‘Which is the strongest Cocktail in your bar?’ or ‘What’s the easiest way to see most of the sights here?’.
So we decided to dedicate part of our video content and a whole section of our Youtube Channel to this help content. Subscribe and we’ll keep you posted and entertained with little help videos. Our coworkers won’t run out of funny hostel stories to tell.

Ever since wombat’s started expanding, Italy was high up on the bucket list. We’ll be opening wombat’s VENICE Mestre this summer and after 20 years in business wombat’s finally sets foot on Italian soil.
Carnival, masks, bridges, canals, gondolas and culture. Overcrowding, floods and high prices. Venice is a unique city, one that has a lot to offer and also a lot to deal with. It has been attracting travellers for hundreds of years and yet it still offers a lot to discover. Venice is definitely one of the destinations where avoiding the beaten path really pays off.
We can’t wait to finally open our wombat’s in this unique city.
As you know, style is at the fore of wombat’s, with a unique design of each hostel reflective of its cultural location. The interior of the new wombat’s is inspired by the city of bridges and the lagoon. By the contrast between the functionalism of a hostel and the opulence of this precious city. Breaking down the abundance of Venetian decor to its core and spreading the elements throughout the hostel. Be it the colours and shapes of the facades, the ornaments or the blue of the water, we want our new hostel to reflect the feel of Venice.
It will be nicely pepped up with graphic design elements inspired by the Italian futurism and decoration elements that honour the traditional role of Venice as the Mediterranean trade hub. We have a lot of love for Venice and we really want to show this in our hostel located just at the doorstep of this a great city.
Among all the lovely details there’s one thing that makes wombat’s special; The hostel atmosphere that we all love, travellers sharing not only a space, but an experience. Creating an authentic home away from home.
wombat’s VENICE main entrance. We just recently added our logo.
You’ll find no more than eight beds in a dorm. The spacious dorms and private rooms are decked out with modern interiors and ensuite bathrooms. Private locker boxes and key-card only access ensure extra security. Want to post that selfie? There’s decent Wi-Fi throughout the entire building. Run out of clean pants? There’s a self-service laundry. Starving or want to impress your roommates? Cook up a storm in the guest kitchen for self-made feasts. Hungover or need fuel for a Venice expedition? There’s an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet to fill yourself up. Not hungover yet? There’s a bar with happy hours for beer and cocktails.
Easy to find. The writing faces the rail tracks.
We’re thrilled about the opening, but we are also well aware of our responsibility. Venice faces a huge problem with the overcrowding on the main islands and we’ll also bring in lots of travellers. That’s why we want to help our guests to open up for a more responsible tourism with respect for the cultural heritage of the city and the lagoon. We want to embrace all possibilities to explore off the beaten paths and stay open for authentic experiences. Our new hostel is not only inspired by Venice, it is also located just at its doorstep. Venezia-Mestre is the part of town that lays on the mainland and connects to the islands through Ponte della Libertá. Mestre is actually home to two thirds of the population of Venice. Mestre is less a facade and more a very down to earth Italian city. In a way, even the Mestre also reflects that contrast between the opulent and the functional. Nevertheless Mestre is also and foremost a traffic hub with an international train and bus station. From the main entrance of wombat’s you will find a pathway directly to the platform number one, where all trains to the islands stop.
More than just Venice
However, the proximity to the train station connects you to more than ‘just’ Venice. The charming cities of Trentino and Padova are also only 20 minutes away. If you would even consider to take a train ride of roughly an hour, you could reach gems such as Vicenza, Ferrara or Verona (home to the love story of Romeo and Juliet) for a day trip. We have the feeling that this area will develope beautifully within the next couple of years and we’re happy to form part of this. It is indeed a great alternative to staying on the islands, as all international trains and buses stop in here.
Everybody who stayed at wombat’s Vienna the Lounge shortly before Christmas will remember the little musical interlude at breakfast. At that time we had a very special guest: the children’s choir Dia.logos from Sibiu, Romania. During their concert tour in Upper Austria and Vienna they spent one night with us and surprised us with a little Romanian Christmas song in the morning. What a nice gesture, that sweetened the morning for the guests and the staff!
The children’s choir Dia.logos is from the Transylvanian city Sibiu, which is one of the most important cultural centres of Romania and was designated the European Capital of Culture for the year 2007. Dia.logos was founded 3 years ago by the priest Alexandru Ionită who supports projects for disadvantaged children living in great poverty on the outskirts of Sibiu. One of the projects he supports is the “Caravana Gypsy Jazz” Ensemble, consisting of seven ambitious musicians. At the same time the Caravana Gypsy Jazz is an education project that offers a perspective to young people from disadvantaged families, offering them music lessons by the members of the ensemble. The initiator of this project is Emanuel Mario Bebe from Bucharest, who also grew up in a children’s home and calls it his “soul project”.
With the help of wombat’s and that of many others, the children’s choir Dia.logos was able to realize this trip. The voluntary donations collected at the three benefit concerts can now be used mainly for the educational project of Alexandru Ionită, for disadvantaged children living in great poverty on the outskirts of Sibiu. The high sum of 1.000.- Euro will go into the music project with the group Caravana Gypsy Jazz.
As Teresa Leonhard, another supporter of the project said, it is beautiful to see how music is is able to build bridges. We are very happy being part of this great project and would love to welcome them again!
Christmas time is over, but the winter has still taken over Vienna. But that’s no reason to not enjoy the Austrian capital. There are plenty of things to do and to see in this great city in wintertime! Our wom-walk guide and Vienna expert Charles collected some recommendations for sightseeing and activities in Vienna in winter.
As long as it is cold it’s time to discover the many natural ice skating facilities and ice rinks. Put on your skating shoes, step on the slippery surface and learn how great fun it is to skate outdoors in the centre of Vienna.
At the Wiener Eislaufverein (Vienna Ice Skating Club) you can rent skates, learn to dance the Waltz on the ice, try the “Eisstockschießen” (the Austrian version of curling) or just enjoy to skate in the beautiful neighbourhood of the Konzerthaus. It is situated at the Lothingerstraße 22 in the 3rd disctrict, next to the U4 metro station “Stadtpark”.
And you should try the “Eistraum”: From 18th January till 3rd of March you can skate in front of the Viennese City Hall – a truly unique Vienna winter experience! Especially at night (till 10 o’clock) this might be the best ice skating experience you ever had; it’s not just for nothing that it’s called the „Eistraum“, which means „Ice Dream“. For more Info check the Eistraum website.
Sightseeing – Vienna from above
It is rather difficult to get up anywhere in the city centre. Nevertheless, there’s a place I can definitely recommend for great panoramic views.
Another great view offers the café/cantina on the roof of the Palace of Justice, which houses the highest courts of Austria. You find it at the Schmerlingplatz 10, next to the Parliament and U2 metro station Volkstheater. At the entrance you will be checked like on an airport, but once you are inside you can enjoy the beautiful interior of this 19th century palace. Take the elevator up to the cantina: it is quite fancy, but you can enjoy good food and great view over the Ringstraße Boulevard and the Old town of Vienna.
So much for today, folks. For any further infos just contact our reception staff in the hostels or talk with me during one of the free wom-walks.

You could go to nearby ski regions from Vienna by train or bus within 2 hours, but you could also do this: Catch a flight from Vienna at 6:35am, fly out to Innsbruck/Tyrol, enjoy a day of skiing and get back to Vienna by 19:55pm. Sounds crazy? Indeed it is, but the weird thing about it is, it’s actually offered as an affordable package.
The package includes in detail: Flights including taxes (Carry-on Luggage max. 8 kg) Transfer to and from the ski region Ski- or snowboard hire on site Ski-pass
The whole package is available from €169 This is probably the best deal you can get for a ski trip from Vienna. The ski region offered is spectacular and compares to the ski regions outside of Vienna (Semmering mainly) like a Dodge Viper compares to a Buick. Just to give you an idea, the day pass alone is worth around €50. So, price-wise this is a ridiculous offer, really.
When is it available? Between December 2018 and April 2019 only on Tuesdays and Fridays due to availability.
How can you book it? You can try to book via http://www.abzumschnee.at/home/flugzumschnee/angebote/33, the website is only in German though.
You could ask our receptionists to book for you, but we will talk you into another day trip, as we do care about our environment and flying from Vienna to Tyrol is just impractical.
Seriously, this offer is as good as it is insane and it will leave you with the ecological footprint of a chain-smoking, truck-driving Tyrannosaurus Rex. So, please, spend €50 less and catch a train to Semmering. That might be less spectacular, but way better for your karma.

For 24 years now, the New Year’s Trail Vienna has been an integral part of New Year – just like the traditional Blue Danube Waltz at midnight and the famous Vienna New Year’s Concert.
The visitors of Stephansplatz can dance into the New Year with the traditional Danube Waltz.
With dozens of events and attractions in thirteen different locations throughout central Vienna, the Vienna New Year’s Trail will again be a great open air festival for everyone who wants to start the New Year in style. The programme offers highlights for all tastes and ages – from Viennese waltz, folk music or samba rhythms to current pop hits.
As always, there will be plenty of food and refreshments for the revellers, with food stalls, bars and restaurants serving hot punch, baked potatoes and barbecued sausage. You can even try specialities like fresh rolls with wild boar meatloaf – the gourmet version of a local snack favourite.
Locations are among others: Rathausplatz (Cityhall), Freyung, Graben, Stephansplatz, Kärnter Straße, Neuer Markt, Heldenplatz and Prater.
If you want to have a drink before you enter Vienna´s New Year´s Trail, the wombars in wombat´s CITY Hostels The Base, The Lounge and The Naschmarkt will be offering Drinks for reasonable prices, as well as Happy Hours for beer, Cocktails and other specials.
We hope you enjoy your stay in Vienna and wish you a Happy New Year.
Christmas away from home can be hard for some people. Fortunately, wombat’s Vienna did everything they could to make it feel like being home for my holidays last year. Upon arriving on Christmas Eve, there was a nice Christmas tree, and Christmas cookies at reception. I love Christmas cookies, so this already made me extremely happy!
Wombat’s Vienna Naschmarkt is a stone’s throw from the U-Bahn station, making my walk through the Austrian winter extremely short, which I very much appreciated. There is also an open air market right across the street, which has dozens of shops to buy warm food and groceries. After I checked in, the friendly staff gave me two free drink tickets (bonus!) and informed me that because it was Christmas Eve, they would be serving a warm punch at the bar tonight for free. Who needs presents when you have warm punch?
I decided to go on the free walking tour wombat’s has the next day. It was extremely cold out, but there was still a big group bundled up and ready to go! Our tour guide showed us around to a lot of the local sights, and I made friends with a few of my tour buddies!
Vienna is a beautiful, charming city and happens to be home of the original Wiener Schnitzel! There are several restaurants that specialize in schnitzel, so I would advise to do your research to decide which one to go to! Figlmüller seems to be the most popular, but make sure to make reservations in advance, as it fills up very quickly! I would also recommend enjoying some delicious Viennese coffee while you are there.
Nightlife is pretty diverse in Vienna, so I asked the wombat’s staff where to go based on my preferences. Turns out Christmas in Vienna has some special options in terms of nightlife. They had some great insight and made some recommendations that turned out to be just what I was looking for. I also spent some time at a couple of the Christmas markets, which are my favorite part of Europe in December. Nothing beats a mug of Glühwein (warm mulled wine) when it’s snowing outside.
It was cool to finally visit one of the original wombat’s on my trip around Europe. There is definitely a wombat’s theme, but each location has their own local flare. The most common similarities though, are the fantastic locations (both to public transport and activities) and the amazingly friendly staff. Thanks for making my Christmas in Vienna one to remember!

In Austria the Christmas spirit begins to creep in during November. That’s when the first Christmas markets open. Vienna has an enormous variety of Christmas markets to offer. Actually it seems there’s one Vienna Christmas market around the corner no matter where you are and indeed you don’t have to walk far from one to another in Vienna’s city center. You can either follow the sweet fragrance of chestnut, gingerbread and alcoholic punch or you can ask the receptionists at your wombat’s CITY HOSTEL for directions and recommendations. Normally, Christmas markets are more expensive and touristy the closer they are to Vienna’s main sights, like the city hall or Schönbrunn palace. It’s not necessarily a bad thing if you visit Vienna as a tourist and carry enough cash :). Those locations also make for really nice photos, with the sites and monuments all lit up and decorated.
The slightly hidden markets, like the one at Spittelberg, are normally populated by locals. Especially at Museumsquartier and Altes AKH you’ll meet students and young locals. It is actually a habit among Austrians to visit a Christmas market to drink some punch (Punsch) or mulled wine (Glühwein) before you go out. In some places you have many different versions of Glühwein or punch, but the main concept is always the same: Hot alcohol (in case of Glühwein, hopefully wine) and spices mixed with more spirits. Looking for inspiration? Here are the most important Christmas markets with directions and opening hours in Vienna:

For the 8th consecutive year now, wombat’s VIENNA The Lounge is an official model accommodation for the MQVFW.18. The Fashion Week takes place in Museum Quartier, just a 10 minute stroll from either of the wombat’s CITY HOSTELS in Vienna and celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. It has become an ever growing event, that may not yet put Vienna in the focus of the fashion world as the fashion weeks in Paris, Milano and London do. But it definitely puts fashion in the focus of Vienna, as the creative fashion designers and fashionistas of the region gather and mix with an international audience. It’s this mingle that creates a great personal, yet professional atmosphere. Over 10.000 guests visited the shows last year and many recurring visitors came back for the shops. The shows feature local labels, viennese design schools, as well as reknown international brands. As special thing about MQVFW is the long term cooperation with designers from Thailand. In short, the MQ Vienna Fashion Week is a hidden gem in the fashion world and would definitely add a great, authentic, off-the-beaten-path experience to your stay in Vienna.
Feel the LOVE
At wombat’s we’re also celebrating an anniversary, our 20th year in business. To honor these coinciding anniveraries we decided to bring a little bit of Fashion Week to our Hostel at the Naschmarkt as well. We’re hosting the pop-up store of an upcoming, Austrian Label at wombat’s VIENNA Naschmarkt.
LOVE Skate- Snowboards and Clothing brings their urban wear to wombat’s. The pop-up store is just next to reception and our cosy chill out corner.
