Nice hostel with all the commodities you need, a good location and a rooftop bar perfect for meeting other people. The option of a bufet breakfast for a cheap price is a great option for backpackers. Would definetily come back.

Decent hostel with helpful staff, clean rooms and good facilities. Besides the upstairs bar (which is quite good for socialising and meeting people) there is not a lot of hostel activities and guests are left to plan their own activities. Overall a positive experience.

I booked a 6 Bed Mixed Dorm Ensuite, they gave me a 4 Bed Ensuite instead. Not gonna complain ;) Room and shower is fairly clean. There's plentiful space to put my luggage in the room and a small coffee table is available too. The kitchen however, is not very clean and closes before 11pm. The bar on the top floor has a great view and a pool table.

Typical chain hostel, nothing special but good in general. Location is very good, with some nice Asian restaurant around and close to Alexenderplatz, where you can find everything you need. Just that the staff at the reception didn't offer much information special about the city, just gave me some maps. Relatively clean.

The reception staff were pretty arrogant and rude which was not a good first impression. However, the place was clean, in a good location and had an awesome social atmosphere in the upstairs bar. The reception staff would do well be letting new guests know where are the hostel facilities are...

Like in any other Wombats I stayed: clean, cheap, nice staff, nice guests and the cool WomBar!! In addition there's even a terrace over the roofs of Berlin next to the bar. What do you want more from a hostel?

The Wombat chain seems to have a notorious habit of having terrible wifi. I've stayed at 3 other wombats and this one was the same. It's a nice hostel and everything. Kept clean, and such. The only thing is that the location of it is pretty far from anything because Berlin is so huge, so you have to take the metro which is about a 1 minute walk to. And the wifi wasn't the best either....not the worst wifi I've experienced, but still not great.

This place is incredibly fun, perfectly located and an ideal choice for anyone travelling alone due to the great rooftop bar.

Wombat's reputation precedes itself and I would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Berlin. My one gripe with the location is that its wifi is spotty and it isn't a new complaint and been noted before. I had limited and inconsistent reception in my room and would require me to be in the lobby to use the internet, which is inconvenient because after a long day I want to lie in bed & be on my computer rather than being in the lobby. Otherwise this is an excellent place.

This is quite a large hostel. The bar on the top floor was pretty groovy, featuring a terrace and panoramic views over Berlin. The rooms were very large with a reading light and powerpoint for each bunk. The bathroom could have been cleaner. The staff were pretty average for the most part- definitely nothing to write home about.

Excellent!

Great hostel with fun atmosphere. The rooftop bar and cozy kitchen made it easy to meet others as a solo traveller, despite the size of the hostel. Located near the train, therefore easy access across Berlin and out of the city.

great location but did find the staff very hostile, this seemed to be a Berlin trend though. wasn't the best atmosphere, hostel puts on facade of being party friendly but this was not the case. location couldn't be better 10 minute walk to TV tower and very close to train station

I don't have enough words to describe how much I liked to host in Wombats. That was really the best hostel I've ever stayed. It's clean, well-located, very nice atmosphere, cheap (more than should be, I must say...hahaha) and it also has a great staff.

The staff are very nice. The very close proximity to U-Bahn is convenient. Definitely will be back.
