Wombats is a nice hostel with awesome staff. Biggest Downside the construction right outside my room that started early every morning. But not Wombats fault and earplugs helped!


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


This must be my second time at Wombats so it speaks for itself if I have come back here again. A great hostel in an interesting neighbourhood and close to Alexanderplatz station.


Had a great stay here. Great facilities, bathroom in down room, power plug and light on each bed and spacious rooms. Happy hour twice a day in bar upstairs and good place to meet people. Has a kitchen and restaurant attached also. Would stay here again.


overall a great hostel, clean, helpful staff, good 4 star restaurant next door, located round the corner from metro.


The hostel has a great atmosphere which facilittates the meeting of other guests! It has all the usual facilities including a clean kitchen, and a great bar! The staff are also very helpful in recommending places to visit and helping you find things! I was a solo traveler who met great people to spend time with, and had alot of fun


Great hostel, friendly staff and atmosphere.Rooftop bar is great as well


This wombats Is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. The only thing I'd change is to add some sound dampening material in the bar, which is a strange complaint, but the bar gets REALLY loud, especially with a bunch of Australians yelling in there. Other than that, very comfortable stay, easy to meet people, cook food, and well located near mitte and alexanderplatz and right by the ubahn. Would recommend


We had an amazing time staying at the Wombats Berlin. Met great people and had an overall great time.

It's a wombat. Wifi sucks. Bathrooms smell weird


This was a fantastic hostel! Would definitely stay again. Great facilities, cheap bar, really well stocked kitchen. Clean and friendly. It's really close to a metro stop and bus stop, and great shopping areas.


Location is excellent! Facilities were extremely clean. No line up for the shower. Excellent water pressure. Bed / pillow was very comfortable. Room has 2 windows which open up for fresh air. Café’s, restaurants & convenience stores at walking distance. Staff was very knowledgeable. Night train was cancelled without notice. Staff allowed me to stay 1 extra night & they provided directions to closer train station.


If you want to party and you don't care so much about sleeping, this is your hostel. The beds were not so comfortable and I wasn't lucky with people in my room... Staff people are amazing!!! Very friendly and helpful. The bar is great, although there was a big group of teenagers there that didn't seem to belong to the place. I didn't spend a lot of time there. The restaurant serves pretty good breakfast and excellent meals for a reasonable price.


Great location in an area close to great bars, restaurants, cafes etc. I stayed in a 6 bed girls dorm and had no issues, very clean as there is a cleaner who comes in every morning


Atmosphere was great, very party vibe but who doesn't want to go out when you're in Berlin! Rooms spacious, showers a bit small and weren't always clean. Location was good, in a cool area but a bit out of the way from the main centre. Easy to walk to in 20-25mins :)


Great place to stay if you can figure out how to get around the city or don't mind walking. The staff was very helpful and had great insight on locations to visit.


Good facilities (nice kitchen) and location (even though it get a bit noisy), excellent staff, breakfast was also really good. The only bad thing, in my opinion, was the atmosphere: large groups of high school students and many groups of americans behaving like teenagers on the bar at the top floor.


This hostel is awesome. I was at a female ensuite dorm, that had a good space and was very clean. Each bed had a private lamp a plug, which helps not disturbing the others. The hostel has a very nice atmosphere and a pub on the roof top. Great breakfast for only 3,80 euros. Regarding the location, it has a metro station right on the corner and it is at a walking distance from Alexanderplatz. I will definitely stay in Wombats again and recommend it to everyone.


Decent place overall. Staff was moody. Tossed my ID-card around. Probably tired of all the check inn's she had to do that day.
