“Awesome hostel”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Staff is always available to help, well located, good prices. Most of the guest, as common in hostels, are young people, very polited.
The bar on the roof is a good place to meet people from other countries and speak/hear different languages/accents.

This place is very average and it's not cheap either. If you were coming here as a group of people to spend your time getting drunk or just not particularly bothered about amenities then maybe it would be okay. I paid €50 a night for a private room in which the wifi didn't work (they only promise wifi in the lobby which seems ridiculous). The breakfast is cheap but not good - just cold cuts, cereal and bread rolls (and never mind it being cheap, for €50 a night I ought to get a cold cut and some cereal for free!). Some of the staff were okay but a lot of them seemed permanently dazed and not particularly responsive (although poor service seems to be the norm in Berlin).

The location isn't great either. It's relatively close to all of the "sights" in Mitte but not actually that close - it's a walk of about 3/4km to hit the Tiertgarten and the Brandenburg Gate etc. Not near any particularly cool or good places to eat or drink that I was able to see. Contains its own bar which seemed alright.

On the whole overrated, as is Berlin itself!

Wombats is nicely located, near the metro and shops. The restaurant offers good breakfast which we certainly availed during our 3 days stay. Only problem was the wifi in the rooms during early evening, i had to go the lobby to connect and check in online for my flight the next day. The staff were cool and helpful. Will definitely stay here again and will recommend.

You want to wake up with the perfect view on Alex or spent the evening sitting on a roof terrace with a amazing view over Berlin? - do not miss Wombats then!!!
The hostel has super friendly stuff, is clean and tidy and the breakfast is more then what you can assume in a hostel.
Perfect place to stay in Berlin!!!

Once we arrived we received an "upgrade" to a room for 6 people to one of only 4, which was great because our group was just 4 people. The staff was very friendly and the bar on the top floor is really cool, with a beatiful view of Berlin. There is a restaurant on the ground floor where you can have a great "all you can eat" breakfast for a really cheap price. The location is great, near a subway station and in a walking distance to Alexanderplatz. The room was not great, but had good beds. In the summer the lack of air conditioning may be an issue. The bathroom was not very beatiful, but very clean. I do recommed this hostel!

Location Location Location: First off Wombats was easy to get to from the Airport mainly because their website has directions on which bus to take. Secondly they are located very near the Rosa-Luxemberg U-bahn (subway) which connects you to the rest of the city and specificially one station over (or a 10 minute walk down the street) is the Alexanderplatz stop which has all the shopping, a large mall called Alexa, and the Fernsehturm. There were also a bunch of little restaurants near by and one attached to the hostel that made grabbing a bite to eat easy.

The hostel was great! The staff was friendly and multilingual and knowledgeable about how to get everywhere I wanted to go and what clubs were good for the night. And they were very helpful and happy to help..even calling cab companies to request large cabs when a large group of us wanted to get to a club.There is a full kitchen with silverware and plates included as long as you wash them when you're finished. Also there are two refrigerators which was definitely nice to bring home left overs and keep them there for lunch the next day. They also have a laundry room. The rooms were decent sized. The bathroom was a decent size. They have in room lockers for you which was nice to throw my computer etc. in while i was travelling and then just left my clothes in my suitcase outside of the locker. The staff lets you keep your luggage in a special room if you get there too early to check in so you can continue travelling which was nice. Despite all the people the wifi was the best from any hostel I stayed at my whole trip. Also there is the WOMBAR at the top of the hostel with two happy hours and a great bucket game to win shots, a pool table and a foosball/table football game to play and lots of a sitting space. I would say that people didn't "hang" out downstairs during the day as much as in some other hostels, but the Wombar was more of the place to hang and socialize with the other hostel patrons.

Primarily a young crowd which was nice too if you're a young traveller looking to make some friends.

Room Tip: I stayed on two different floors, one was even on the 6th floor under the bar area and I never heard...
