wombat's CITY HOSTEL Budapest

Reviewed November 2, 2013

We stayed here on a Top Deck tour, we came in later at night and tried to have a few drinks at the bar but it closed at midnight even though there was still lots of people in there buying drinks. The hallways were long and plain and the rooms were quite large with plenty of empty space to dump your bags. The bathroom was small but nice and clean with hot water which was all we needed. We had to give ID as a deposit to get extra key cards for our rooms. The location was good, we could walk from here to many different places. Breakfast was average, they had a toaster at least unlike other hostels but not really much room to actually eat breakfast with people sitting in random spots to eat.

Easy to find from the nearest metro station, not too far away from any of the main attractions and the best areas for nightlife. Helpful receptionists, hostel was always clean over the few days I stayed there, room was large and spacious, bar was cheap enough. Went on the free walking tour that I think takes place every day, and that was really informative with a very knowledgeable local guide. Only problem was a semi-broken shower which sprayed water all over the bathroom if you didn't know it was broken beforehand, but don't let that dissuade you from staying here. Would certainly stay here again

Stayed here 2 nights in September with my tour group. Was in a 4 bed room that was incredibly spacious and even had a small table and 4 chairs inside it.
Room was also clean and tidy and bed was very comfortable. It also had a bathroom which was incredibly handy.
The breakfast was basic like a standard hostel breakfast and the bar had lots of good drink specials.
Hostel in good location and it is easy to walk anywhere in town and close enough to the train line so you can venture further out if necessary.
I would definitely return here!

I stayed in a double occupancy with an attached bathroom on the 4th floor. The staff was very helpful and spoke perfect English. The room was clean and well located to sites you would want to see in Budapest. I did not give 5 stars because I found the room cold and was unable to warm it up via the temperature controls. Further, the water in the shower was warm but not piping hot which is what I wanted after a long day of walking around.

Apart from a bad shower head in our bathroom which unfortunately was not repaired after informing maintenance, this hostel was excellent value for money and a pleasurable experience for my cousin and I.
The common room area has a variety of seating and decor. Met a few different people from all walks of life. Social atmosphere hooray!
My cousin and I actually enjoyed talking to the lovely reception staff the most! They will be missed.
The breakfast was reasonably priced. There is fruit, yoghurt, a juice and coffee machine, bread, cheese and ham - they even have a sandwich pressing machine so you can make a toastie!
You also get a welcome drink voucher when you check in. Win!
The hostel is SO clean. The best I've seen. Beds were comfortable with your own light and powerpoint.
The location was fantastic! Very central with an underground metro train station just steps away.
Try to schedule your summer stay around a Saturday, as there is a thermal bath pool party called a 'sparty'. GO TO IT! It's a serious load of fun. Ahhh I want to go back!
Thank you Wombats for contributing to my wonderful experience in Budapest. I shall be back! Much love. Lucy the Aussie and Genie the Kenyan xxx

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.
