“Great for backpackers but a bit noisy for me”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Friendly efficient welcome and check in.
Good location, just a couple minutes walk from the metro.
Absolutely spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds, efficient and well set out rooms.
Breakfast not worth getting out of bed for - very limited choice, and third rate quality - watered down juice, no pastries just a bread roll, pay 2.50 euro extra for an egg!!!!
Any problems sorted out quickly and politely.

After staying in a couple of questionable hostels previously, Wombat's was a welcome change from these! It felt very safe and clean, and the rooms were spacious and light. Great place to come in a group, and it felt very social. I'd highly recommend trying Good Morning Vietnam (Vietnamese restaurant across the street) to anyone staying here. Only downside to the hostel was the breakfast (don't bother with it, find something cheaper elsewhere) and the lack of oven in the kitchen.

This hostel is great very clean. It is right in the middle of the city so very close to everything. The rooms have so much space. The lockers in the room are very big a lot of room to store your personal belongings. The only downsides are yhst the rooms get very hot. The wifi is very slow and doesn't work in most places in the hostel. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is good !

Where do I start, If you are young and are out to have a good time this is the hostel for you. The location is great, prices are very good. The Wombar at the top of the hostel is packed every night with travelers looking for a good time. As far as the rooms go, they are clean, staff cleans them daily, sheets, pillows, towels are provided.

If you are looking for a good clean place to party in Berlin, definitely stay here.

A wonderful hostel a 10 minute ride from the 'Centre' of Berlin (which apparently doesn't have a centre due to its history). We stayed in a private room with an ensuite bathroom, which was as good as any motel and probably better than many. It's an ideal choice for backpackers and young travellers.

It was clean and had everything you needed. We got a view of the Fernsehturm (the famous tower) from the little balcony in our room.

The only negatives were that wifi didn't work in the rooms (only in the lobby), the light was a bit dim, and ocassionally you could hear people stomping above in the rooftop bar. Speaking of which, the rooftop bar was a nice place to meet other people, and had an outdoor area. You even get a free beer/wine as a welcome gift when you first check in.

I'm not convinced that the buffet breakfast (for 4 Euros, not included in the room price) was much value for money in a city like Berlin, but if you're not a fussy eater you could easily fill up on the offerings.

Good atmosphere, extremely friendly staff and all in all a great place

Room Tip: We got a very good view of the tower and the dome of Berlin Cathedral from our balcony. Not sure if...

This place was great in terms of meeting people and socialising - they have a lounge downstairs which is comfy (though when too many people use the wifi at once the connection is bad. Given how many people stay in the hostel this happens a lot) and the bar upstairs was great too - cheap and meeting people was super easy. Rooms were super clean and very spacious as were the bathrooms. Good Vietnamese place across the road too if you want cheap eats. Staff were very helpful. Personally I also found this place to be swimming with Australian and Canadian tourists in particular. Good location near a metro station and easy to get to by bus from HBF and a good shopping precinct near alexanderplatz.

Problems: breakfast is not included and only worth paying for if you eat a lot.

This was the first time I have stayed in a Wombat Hostel and I was very impressed. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. The rooms were big and clean and had an ensuite. They also have a bar which is great for meeting people. There are computers if you need internet access which only cost 1 euro for 40 minutes. If I was visiting again I would definitely choose Wombats. Great value for money and close to the centre. The only downfall was the breakfast, very limited however, if you like white bread rolls its perfect.
