The wombats chain is great, great decor, friendly staff, great room size and bathroom, kitchen is fully equipped with some free food too. Lovely bar at the top of the building too with a great view over Berlin and Alexanderplatz. Would definitely revisit.

Good hotel layout style hostel. Rooftop bar is awesome, with a great view of Berlin and cheap drinks! Hostel is clean, secure and pretty close to the city center. Wifi only works in the lobby, which is a bit annoying but leads to the lobby being a decently social area. Washing machines are pricey but work well. Overall this is a standard clean hostel that is made better by a great rooftop bar

As good as it ever is. Wombats is always my first choice in Berlin. On this occasion I was there for a conference and I still chose wombats over the conference hotel because it's extremely good value, the atmosphere is brilliant and I've always met amazing people there.

I liked staying here. Staff was great and funny and created a welcoming atmosphere. Rooms were perfect as well as the bathrooms. The best is the rooftop bar with a wonderful view over Berlin

The staff here were all wonderful. Very kind and seemed genuinely ready to help vs other places where you and your questions often seem a burden and bother. They went above and beyond what i expected helping me by printing and scanning some documents on their printer and then immediately emailing them to me.

Major trouble with wifi wasted a lot of time very frustrating when only there for a few days. This is why I rated facilities good. Otherwise everything else fantastic! Thanks Melinda xxx

Apart from having to move rooms 3 times it was a good stay.

The location is great. The bar on the roof top is great for meeting people.

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of security in the hostel, especially for the room and locker. Everything was kept quite clean. There was always hot water in the shower and such. Tip: get a towel early in the day if you need one because they run out after so long. The front desk staff members were all pleasant, professional, and knowledgeable. There is no real "hangout" / lounging area, just a small "pit" to wait for your friends in the lobby and a part of the rooftop bar.

I loved the Wombats hostel! The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere was great. I really loved the bar at the top of hostel. A great way to meet other travellers. Wi-fi wasn't the best.. Usually only good in lobby. The staff helped me out a lot with recommendations and instructions. The breakfast was ok. I liked that all the rooms have big lockers for my backpack. The showers and restroom wasn't very clean but definately a great hostel. I would recommend it to all my friends!

Very Nice hostel, located near the center of Berlin and 1min walk from metro. The room was very spacious and comfortable for 4 people, there were big windows and natural light. It has safe lockers that you lock with your own card. The beds are comfortable and with fresh linens. The bathroom was good but I would improve the shower door to ensure that water doesn't come out of the receptacle. Everything was quite clean, but it could be even cleaner to be perfect. Nice and helpful staff.

This is a well placed hostel, next to a metro station so easy to get everywhere needed. The WomBar upstairs was great and has a happy hour (AND you get a free drink on arrival!). This is a really great hostel for meeting people and has a party atmosphere, so I wouldn't recommend staying here if you want something a bit quieter. The place was clean, but on our second day while we were out the cleaners took the sheets off the wrong beds and left us dirty sheets (easily fixed) but a bit annoying.
