wombats de Berlim é sem sobra de duvidas um otimo hostel! A acomodação, localizaçao e o bar são sem duvida um diferencial! Você pode jantar no hostel ou aproveitar o bairro que conta com varios restaurantes etnicos!!! O hostel é grande e possui um bar no terraço do predio onde é possivel interagir com os outros hospedes!

First Hostel experience ever, talk about setting the bar high. The staff was cool when I interacted with them. I heard the one guy say that the laundry facilities weren't working correctly but there's a laundry matt just down the street. Met a lot of cool folks and its a block away from the U (subway) also in a good spot within walking distance of some other cool places.

Amazing for the price, best hostel I've ever stayed in. Very clean, new, great amenities. Only thing that would've made it even better is wifi in the rooms

Nice place, cool neighborhood in its own right but quite far from center. Good value for the money in terms of the hostel but 6€ for breakfast is a bit much for what it was but you can always just eat elsewhere or use the kitchen to make food. Also there is a phenomenal Russian cafe just down the street which serves some of the best food I have ever had all-in-all a pretty good stay. I would recommend.

Thanks for your stay! Our breakfast is actually 3,80€ (all you can eat) and we are quite central - would even call it "in the center". Not having a clue about a russian cafe nearby we wonder if your rating was meant to be for us? Thanks for the recommendation anyway!

I was here earlier in May and it was a great stay! Hostel has a gorgeous rooftop view by the bar and staff were really great and lovely. Also the potato wedges in the restaurant were SO GOOD!

Hostel is very up to date. Only negative is that they don't do the best job of controlling noise that goes on outside of hostel. For example, loud groups checking in at 5:00 am chanting and being loud right in the Hostel lobby. However, If you wake up before 5:00 am you won't be bothered.

Lockers could be bigger.

Good hostel - if not a bit too big and a bit hotel-ish. Well set up rooms and good kitchen facilities

The best amenities & by far the cleanest line of hostels I've stayed at. Great for young people! Rooftop terrace makes for a great view of Berlin and the location isn't too far from any major attractions. If you're there on a Sunday, make sure to check out the market up the road!

Noisy as you have people slamming doors all night and the hostel is not clean. Our bathroom for 6 has been barely cleaned even-though I asked for it after two nights. No wifi in dorms or on the terrace. Old and dirty and mattresses. You can find better options in Berlin that offer higher quality. Location is great right next to metro.

thanks for your feedback, sad you got those impressions. all of our rooms get cleaned once a day, public areas twice a day. matresses get cleaned or changed whenever needed - barely any of them is older then a year. as wifi is a problem, yes - we are working on it at the moment.

I stayed here upon recommendation from a few friends and was impressed - very clean facilities, great value buffet style breakfast, convenient location and excellent rooftop bar. One of the best hostels I've stayed in, I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone else too!

Great facilities and location and a comfortable bed. Close to the train station but also walkable distance to everything. Great rooftop bar with a view of the city

Very good vibe, unfortunetely the stay (1 night) was too short to really get to know the hostel.
