“Can't Say Enough Good Things About Wombats!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stayed here for four nights in July. We travelled around Europe for 3 months and wombats was the best hostel we stayed at. We also stayed at the wombats in Vienna (Naschmarkt) and it was fantastic. Wombats Berlin was better than we expected. The location is great. It's not near the main sightseeing parts of Berlin but it is right next to the subway and in a really cool neighbourhood. The value is amazing. We had a private double ensuite room and it was nicer than many of the hotels we stayed in. It was a bit small but very clean and had it's own balcony. The continental breakfast is an additional 3.80 Euros at the restaurant attached to the hostel, but it's worth it for a quick pick me up in the morning (fruit, buns, cereal, nutella, yogurt, etc.). There is free wifi in the lobby and laundry machines in the basement. The rooftop bar was the coolest part. The terrace has an amazing view of the city (see my pictures above) and the bar itself was a great place to meet people (cheap beer too!) Overall we would definitely recommend staying at any wombats -- it's the best hostel chain out there!

I went to check in to Wombat's and was told my reservation was canceled. turned out it was their fault for what happened but they didn't have any rooms available for me and my friends (6 total). They found us another hostel to stay in that was a little further east (down side!!) but offered to pay for our taxi ride there and back the next day when they would be able to accomodate us again. We showed up again the next day and they had rooms for us...we had paid for a 6 bed but they put us in a private 2 bed and a private 4 bed for the same price which was nice. They gave us sheets but you had to make the bed yourself. No towels but I found out later I could have asked the front desk for one. I didn't like that they only had WIFI in the lobby but it wasn't the biggest deal. It's in a great location!! The luggage room is kept locked but you have access to all of the luggage in there which made me nervous...mine was fine though in the end.

This was the most hotel like hostel I've ever stayed in. Nice rooms, big bathroom, private balcony, rooftop bar with cheap drinks, helpful staff and a great location. The only let down is the wi-fi...it's not accessible in the rooms and the bandwidth is rubbish. If one person is on a video call then the 20 others in the room can't even access a webpage. Once Wombat's fixes this issue this will be the perfect place to stay to enjoy Berlin!

I loved staying at Wombat's City Hostel... the room was clean and lovely, the sheets were soft, the ensuite bathroom was very handy and the atmosphere was great! There are great drink specials in the top floor/roof bar several times a night, which is a relaxing place to hang out and check your email after an active day around the city. Later on in the evening, the bar gets busy and bustling and is a fun place to meet people. It's a very convenient location - lots of lovely restaurants and pubs on just across or down the street, you can walk to many of the centrally located locations in the city and you're close to U-Bahn/S-Bahn if you want to go further afield. Also, the staff were exceedingly helpful - lending me a hairdryer, printing out a train ticket for me, etc... at no extra charge. I'll definitely stay there again!

Places like Wombats are changing the perceptions of hostels.

Room was clean and comfortable, and had a view of the TV tower. However the construction site next door was a downer when they started work at 6am (obviously not the hostels fault!). But if you're in a room on that side, be prepared for the noise.

Private bathrooms in each room is good, much better than communal! Overall the hostel is very clean and the staff are very friendly. The left luggage facilities are good, I didn't feel worried about leaving my bag after we checked out.

Internet is only in the lobby which was a bit of a pain. I understand why, but maybe offering free wifi in lobby and a small charge to be able to use in room?

Breakfast was great- amazing fresh baked bread rolls! I advise going a bit later to avoid the crowds.

Metro station is very close and the line its on drops you reasonably close to all the main attractions. Its around €10 for a taxi from most areas and around €28 to Tegel airport in peak hour.

Stayed here for two nights in July whilst on a Topdeck tour and definitely the best hostel we stayed at during the 20 day tour. I stayed in a room with three others and the room was spacious enough for all 4 of us with a decent bathroom. Everything was clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar was also a great place to hangout.

This was our first stop in Europe. Jet lagged after such a long flight the staff were a lovely welcome and such great help. Our dorm was immaculate as we're the common areas.

The bar had a great atmosphere and the discount drinks were great. We had breakfast at he hostel as well and it was one of the best we had on our whole trip.

Great location and easy to navigate public transport. Will definitely stay here again.
