Myself and a few friends were backpacking around Europe. We stayed in many hostels but Wombat's was by far one of our favourites. Staff were extremely helpful and they were available 24/7. Great location and a good price for the spacious rooms we had, albeit, 8 bed shared! Good bar too with good prices, however the one let down was... More

Accommodation was very good, location was perfect, good atmosphere, good sized rooms. Only let down; Wifi was basically non existent, which on a holiday, I don't want to be on my phone 24/7, but it is necessary for planning things etc., so was a bit of a pain that the Wifi was so poor. Also bar staff are far too... More

My partner and stayed in this Hostel for 3 nights in late July 2015, stayed in a private double room with private shower room. We had never stayed in hostels before only ever hotels but due to wanting central locations for cheap prices we decided to chose Wombat's for this trip. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Rooms were... More

I stayed 3 nights in an 8 bed dorm at Wombats Budapest and I thought it was an okay experience. The hostel is conveniently located near a metro and is a short walking distance to many other attractions. Room was clean in general and staff were friendly. However, the hostel is located on an extremely busy street lined with bars... More

After staying in other wombats locations I was quite looking forward to my stay in Budapest. Unfortunately I was left feeling very disappointed with the whole experience. I found most of the staff to be very rude (I say most because there was a lovely and helpful guy working overnight one of the nights but he was the only one).... More

Amazing location, close to everything! Staff were great, rooms were spacious with good lockers and very comfy beds. Large bar/common room area, with busy bar crawl leaving from there every night, which I would recommend too! There's a kitchen and washing facilities too to cook for yourself or wash clothes if you need to. The wifi wasn't very good though.

The rooms were so clean and very spacious. The breakfast was over priced for what it was as you could get cheaper else where. The location of the hostel was ideal. The staff weren't overly friendly I think this is due to the hostel being so big and the reception was always busy but we felt when ever we asked... More

The location is amazing, I don't think its possible to stay at a better place in Budapest. its located right across a street called Gozsdu Udvar, and this street has close to fifty pubs and restaurants which are open quite late. The place is always lively and filled with people. There are a few famous Ruin Pubs like Szimpla kert... More
