This hostel was amazing! I stayed here for a few days during my study abroad trip. The lobby was gorgeous and a great meeting place. The rooms upstairs were quiet, too. The breakfast was wonderful and had a toaster, panini maker, cereals, breads, meats, cheese, and an espresso machine! They had a lot of great services, gave out a free map, and had free towels to use. The wifi was pretty decent in the lobby and not terrible upstairs. Having laundry there was convenient and the location was close to a main metro stop!

Can I move in now, please?

Having stayed at the Berlin Wombats and hearing a good recommendation for the Budapest site, we were still amazed by this hostel. Large, clean, fresh, brilliant location and cheap prices. We booked four friends into the four person share dorm with ensuite. The room was large, clean, had. Small table and chairs and all the regular hostel things like secure locker storage, hanging hook, towels and linen and hair dryer provided within the nice pricing. Bar and downstairs area had a good atmosphere and counter staff were friendly with directions and extra little requests. Best hostel stay to date!

This place was amazing. Great location, fantastic communal areas and bar, spacious rooms, comfortable beds and helpful staff. And the place is the cleanest place I've ever come across. The breakfast is also very good value and saves you having to go out for it.

I think this place is more suited to couples or groups as it's very large and so difficult if you are travelling solo to meet other travellers.

Room Tip: Higher up if you want to be away from the bar.

Great hostel. Unbeatable location, being able to walk almost everywhere and if you are less of a walking person it is close to the subway station. There are plenty of good bars and pubs around and places to eat.
The hostel is spotless clean and the staff is really friendly.
It is a very big hostel which can be a bit hard sometimes when traveling alone but they have a bar open from 6pm which helps with that!

This was my third stay at a Wombats hostel (the others being in Berlin and Vienna) and, as always, it was great. This is an amazing place to stay for incredible value. I stayed in May for five nights at just €10 per night.

As usual, this is a great location, great facilities, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are impeccably clean and, after many too-hot rooms in other hostels, a really nice temperature.

The lobby is really large and lovely. Easy to meet people at one of the many tables that flow into the bar area. Breakfast also has a nice variety.

The only downside was the kitchen was always a mess. This is definitely not the hostels fault, the guests are at fault here. Come on people, nobody wants to deal with someone else's dirty dishes and old food.

I will always recommend my friends and acquaintances stay at Wombats. This is an awesome hostel chain. Don't forget to collect a stamp card if you plan to stay at multiple Wombats so you can get a free breakfast or beer!

I only stayed at Wombats for 1 night to meet a friend in Budapest but it was a good experience. The rooms are great, very modern and every you need. I was suprised with how good the lockers were as well, no need for keys or padlocks, only your room card to open and close the door.
Great facilities, good bar, kitchen etc.
The only let down for me was a lack of social activities. The best hostels i have stayed at have arranged nightly activities for their guests whether it is entertainment in the bar or going out and about with a group of people.

Room Tip: If you choose the first floor, it might be a little bit noisy from the bar downstairs but you can of...
