Wombat's City Hostel in Berlin definitely lives up to the reputation. It has clean facilities, great staff, and a good location.
The rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were all in great shape. It was really nice to have an ensuite. Plus, the two of us booked a six-bed room and were placed in a four-bed room - bonus!
The breakfast was mediocre but between that and making your own it was great to have options.
The staff were helpful and the free map is really well done with recommendations for cafes, bars, clubs, and places to eat. Seriously, go to Dolores and get a burrito.
I have only one concern: each floor, room, and locker is very secure with key card entrance but the front door in the lobby is wide open all day. This is great in creatin a welcoming atmosphere but it always welcomes unwanted guests. Twice some children came in from off the streets and tried takin people's valuables ie. electronics. All it took was a firm "No!" and they were deterred from me to the next individual but it is still a concern. The lobby (and bar upstairs) is the only place the Internet works so obviously people will have phones or computers with them downstairs. I don't expect Wombat's to be held responsible for my belongings but I do expect them to hold a responsibility in my safety and, frankly, that did not make me feel safe.
Overall I had a pleasant experience and will be staying with Wombat's in Vienna. I only hope that the door to the lobby will remain closed in the future.
