This is a great hostel! It's in a good location not far from the city centre attractions, the room had plenty of space and was clean, and also had an ensuite which was very pleasing. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and while I had to pay a little extra for the breakfast it was pretty decent food. Also full marks for the rooftop bar, the view from the balcony of Berlin is stunning (not to mention the free drink token)!

The best hostel I've ever been!

This hostel is generally good, but I booked a '2 bed apartment ensuite', it turns out it is a 1 bed apartment, and the other person sleeps on the couch. Still good value, but the description is misleading if not downright dishonest.

My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights in a 6 bed mixed dorm ensuite. Its location, near Alexanderplatz, makes it an ideal place to stay. All staff members were extremely friendly and helpful. It is the perfect style of hostel to meet other travelers from around the world. The Happy Hour in the bar (upstairs) is a must! Even though there is a lot of atmosphere the rooms are extremely quiet at night. We spent 3 weeks in Germany and this is by far one of the best hostels we stayed at.

Not a bad hostel but certainly not anything amazing. Cool bar upstairs

Wombats is a large hostel so it can sometimes be hard to talk to people but the wombar makes up for it as everyone goes up there and socializes every night. As a solo traveler this was a great way of meeting other travelers. The place is excellently located at Alexanderplatz not far on the bahn or walking from many of the main sites and the security is top notch with a key needed even to enter your floor. All in all I had an excellent stay at wombats and met some really awesome people!

Internet connection was not good! We had some problems with the comportement of the others roommates and we have to change room because of that! The skybar was awsome.

Nice hostel in a great location. Bars/restaurants are around the corner and the subway-station "Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz" is 1 minute away. I like the concept of the wombat hostels - you've got electricity/lights at every bed and lockers can be secured by keycard.

Really nice hostel with a fantastic rooftop bar and patio, great place to meet travellers. Definitely feels more like a hotel but great value with the free breakfast (which is actually pretty decent compared to a lot of pretty bad hostel breakfasts I've had). In a pretty touristy location but central and easy to get almost anywhere. Would recommend!

For a party hostel it wasn't wild but the bar and patio are awesome and get pretty crazy at night. I had a blast and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and there is heaps of space for your stuff, te beds are comfy and have their own personal shelf, reading light and outlet which is an amazing bonus. The internet however didn't work well and there isn't really a common area to hang out, it's in the lobby which kind of sucks. However I would definitely recommend this place.
