Not much going on here. Might as well be a hotel. Not the party hostel that some of the pages on the internet say it is. I have no idea how it got on to some of those lists of best party hostels worldwide....

Sometimes it was very loud at night. Clapping doors, screaming, etc.

I felt the female only room was of higher quality than the mixed room, but everything in both rooms was great. A larger communal space would be the only improvement I can think of.

Everything is perfect except the cleanliness of guest kitchen. The utensils are not clean but it is worth renting due to low price. Wombats becomes my top hostel forever.

72-hour free wifi is quite enough for 6-day staying. Everything is fine but the water heating bottle need to wash every time. It's ok if you dun use the kitchen or hot water for drinking.

I think this was an absolutely fantastic hostel! I had heard great things about the Wombats chain and I wasn't disappointed. The rooms were clean and the staff were helpful. Checked out the bar but it wasn't the greatest and slightly overpriced, just slightly disappointed by the atmosphere. That being said, I was in Berlin and I didn't have to walk far to find a nice place to drink and meet new people.

Fantastic stay at wombats city hostel. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. Common area downstairs was spacious. Happy hour at the bar on the 7th floor had great drink specials and was a great way to meet other travelers. Breakfast in the morning was fantastastic. I highly recommend this hostel.

Great hostel. The staff were very helpful, and the rooms are nice and clean, with nice toilets. The breakfast is okay for the money. The best thing about this hostel though is the rooftop bar that's open til late, with a stunning view from the terrace (open until 10pm) over Berlin, where it's easy to meet people to go out. Decent location in Mitte. There's a kebap shop around the corner, whcih is convenient, but its kebaps are only okay - All in One is a better kebap shop that's still in Mitte.

Really friendly and helpful staff. The place has a nice vibe. It was clean and comfortable. The water was hot. The breakfast was a good value and a great way to start the day. Will stay there again when I go back to Berlin.

Great location, clean rooms with lots of space. Only downfall is that there is not a common area so if you are a solo traveller it is hard to meet others. Also the wifi was unreliable.

A good hostel apart from the layout of the bar upstairs, it wasn't great for meeting people, if ur travelling alone! Everything was great, staff are good, no complaints, I would try somewhere different if I was in Berlin again!

Big hostel that has pretty much everything you expect from a hostel, nice rooftop bar and terrace - but like most massive hostels its pretty tough to have a communal atmosphere.

No real common room. Large hostel so difficult to meet people. The staff is hit or miss. Had one really incredible guy with dark facial hair who was fantastic and really made me feel welcome. One german girl with glasses who was unnecessarily rude. Bar at top is nice. Clean rooms. Good location.
