Hostelworld says:

Wombats City Hostel Berlin was rated the most popular in Berlin at the 2011 Hoscars and it's no wonder. They're located near Alexanderplatz, Museum Island and Prenzlauer Berg and have 'a warm family-like atmosphere', according to our guests, who also praise the staff, saying they're 'always nice and they have a bunch of tops to give us for everything in the city'. We like their seventh-floor bar, featuring happy hour specials and a rooftop terrace.

Property Information:

Hostelworld guests rated us the Most Popular in Berlin and the Best Worldwide Extra Large Hostel at the 2011 Hoscars! We were also voted the Best Hostel Chain Worldwide at the 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Hoscars. We kindly thank every single guest. We promise to keep it up!

Enjoy and share a new view on Berlin and hostel culture. The new pride of our hostel family is situated in the heart of Berlin, just a few steps from a metro station; the sights and a big nightlife area are within easy walking distance. This place surely gives you new perspectives on travelling - be it from inside or from our top recommendation, the womBar (with a large terrace) on the seventh floor. Enjoy your stay and indulge in a brand-new hostel experience!

Please note that the rates given on this site do not include breakfast. Our all-you-can-eat continental buffet brekkie costs Euro 3.90. You don't need to reserve breakfast, just come around to the reception in the morning if you're hungry.

We have apartments with double beds in a separate bedroom, with a kitchen/living room with a double-size sofa and private shower/toilet. That's about as extravagant as staying in a hostel will ever get. ;-)

There's five reasons why Wombats City Hostels became a destination by their own right:

Best Cleanliness:
Unfortunately, not something to take for granted in many other hostels, but we do take this seriously: we've won the 'Cleanest Hostel Worldwide' award. Twice.

Most Amenities:
We're centrally located and close to the trains and public transport. We have maximum security with smartcard access for the front door, the floors, the rooms and your locker.

All our rooms come with comfy wooden beds, private shower and toilet facilities plus lockers for your belongings. You'll get a free set of bed linen, a free welcome drink, free Wi-Fi (in the lobby), a guest kitchen for free use and our free self-made city map with all essential information about the going-ons in town.

We offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast, our lively womBAR serves cheap drinks and food, there's internet terminals, laundromats, 24 hours reception service and 'of course' no age limit, no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules.

We're the hostel from travellers for travellers:
We have travelled the world ourselves - so we know first-hand what you're doing and what you expect from us. We care for you and we care for your feedback.

Best social atmosphere:
We make sure that you'll feel safe and welcome here. When you've been on the road all day long, seeing sights and walking and walking, it's cool to have a nice scene at the hostel where you can have some beers, talk and make friends. This will make your stay a memorable one! Many a traveller stayed quite a bit longer than primarily intended.

Wombats is not dirt cheap:
You may find an even cheaper place to crash in town, but none where you get more value for your money.

We're looking forward to welcoming you !

  • Wombats City Hostel Berlin says

    Wombats are party hostels but unlike most other party hostels we have decent rooms and friendly, professional service. We make sure we're not understaffed so we can take care of everyone's small and big concerns. We take cleanliness seriously-everyone expects not to find the waiter's hair in the soup and it should be the same at hostels.
    We're strategically located just between the nightlife area and the tourist area, both only a short walk away. The one local sight that I especially recommend is a walk up to the cupola of the parliament building. Entrance is free, the structure is an amazing piece of architecture and the plenary hall is in plain view right under you. They do have a glass ceiling to avoid being spat upon, though…
    Here at our hostel we have a roof terrace with a splendid view of Berlin's skyline. All of our hostels are fully wheelchair-accessible and each has a few specially equipped rooms.

    Wombat's was great! The people there were nice, the staff was helpful, and the facilities were clean. The bar upstairs was perfect for pregaming and going out and meeting people. They even had drink specials all night. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone.

    Very nice place, but harder to meet people as it is set up as a hotel in many ways. But very clean and inviting.
