Had a great time at this hostel, the rooftop bar is amazing, though it would be really great if during the summer months you could get a fan or aircon in the bar, as when they close the outdoor area at 10, the room gets ridiculously hot and no amount of cold drinks can make you cool again. This is the same for many of the rooms, after a big night out in Berlin, there is nothing worse than waking up in a 35 degree room.

Really enjoyed my stay at Wombats

Nice place to stay, pretty central, clean, and good security. The atmosphere is ok, but not ideal for solo travelers.

This hostel was absolutely perfect! The rooftop bar was loads of fun, the rooms were nice and the showers were clean. The kitchen was also great and the hostel was within walking distance to everything!

The hostel was amazing. They have great staff that make sure you have a good time. The hostel also brings in people with positive out looks; as result, the air is always filled with great atmosphere. The 7th floor has a wombat bar that over looks the entire city! The downside of the bar is it becomes a steam room when everyone is up to their, but who cares as long as you have fun! Also, the bartenders are amazing, great people. The area is fantastic with lots of locals to chit chat with. :D

The staff came and tried to save us from the bad ticket men! But to no success but the effort was lovely. Loved the city! Recommend Berlin and would recommend to stay with these guys!

The location of Wombats City Hostel is great, Mitte is a really nice area that's safe with many good shops and cafés. It's close to a few different metro stations as well which is really helpful. The hostel itself was okay, it was hard to meet people as a solo traveller as the common area (to me) wasn't inviting in the slightest. The bar was okay, it offers a nice rooftop view, but the kitchen was great. The staff were friendly enough, and I appreciated the big lockers and ensuite bathrooms.

Extremely noisy. Doors constantly being slammed at all hours so it's impossible to sleep with so much noise coming from the hallways or from rooftop bar or courtyard.

Staff really made this hostel - I met several of them and they were all very helpful and made me feel at ease. They provided an excellent atmosphere. The location was excellent - very close to transport links and the main station at Alexanderplatz so it is easy to find if you are coming from the airport. The hostel is central and actually I found it easy to work nearly everywhere around Berlin from the hostel.

Wombats Berlin is by far the best hostel I have stayed at. The location is great, right near the U, amazing restaurants and only a short walk from Aldxanderplatz! The rooftop bar is the best always a great atmosphere and cheap drinks! The staff are awesome and help out as much as they can. The rooms are really clean and the locker security system is the best.

The facilities are pretty good and the hostel is clean. However, this is a very big hostel and large groups are always in and out. In my experience this was not good for the atmosphere. Skip the 3 euro breakfast. There's an excellent German bakery half a block down the street.

Great hostel with a great atmosphere. Roof top bar is a great place to meet others, good value drinks and as a solo traveller met loads of people! Great kitchen facilities and wifi worked in my room. Clean and spacious room and great en suite bathroom. Great location directly across from the U-bahn (underground) station and in a great suburb with lots of nice bars and cafes. Would highly recommend to others & would stay here again in a heartbeat if in Berlin again!

The only major problem I faced was the noise through the window. I stayed in a room on the 1st floor, and the sound of the cars honking always reached the room.

Great hostel, the lockers are very safe and the location is excellent. Staff was great and the bar was a fun pre-drink spot that always played the World Cup games.

Great stay. Fun and lively in the afternoon/evening. Quiet and relaxing in the night and morning.

This was a great place! I would stay here again! The only thing that could really be better is the wifi. It was ridiculously slow in the lobby area and it didn't work in the rooms at all.
