Loved staying at this hostel!! The staff were super friendly and keen to answer all our questions with a smile on their face. The room was very clean, modern and comfortable, with private bathroom. Great location, walking distances to the main attractions. Safe area full of restaurants and cool places to see. Can't wait to stay at the other wombats hostels around Europe!

I have stayed in a few Wombats hostels, and they are all great. Fantastic location (3mins walk to Basilica and underground station). Plenty of food places nearby. Always clean, bed sheets provided, beds were acceptable, lockers in rooms, quality breakfast. Recommended.

A big and modern hostel. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the location was perfect, restaurants and nightlife just outside the door.
Unfortunatly it was not that easy to sleep there since the aircon didn't work so the room was very hot and that the street outside was very loud.
If you go to Budapest for other things than sleeping I recommend this hostel!

This place is more like a hotel if you get a room to yourself. Everything was perfect, the location, the prices, cleanliness and helpfullness of the front desk staff. Its really one of the cleanest hotels i've ever stayed at, much less a hostel. The breakfast is decent, the wifi might be the only problem, it disconnects a lot. People that stay here are generally very friendly and happy. I would recommend this place above all other hotels in Budapest, especially considering the prices.

Room Tip: Obviously try to get a room to yourself or if none available, a room with as few beds as possible.

Everywhere was spotless, the staff were super friendly, the breakfast decent and cheap, lots of room for chilling out and a perfect location. The bar area was pretty cool, good music and cheap drinks. I would return here if in Budapest and recommend to anyone.
