Great atmosphere and vibe to the place, friendly and helpful staff - bar at the top was especially great for meeting and socializing with other travellers!

Good location near a train station but also walking distance to Alexanderplatz. Rooms were fine with a really nice bathroom. Very clean woth power sockets, lamps and lockers for each bed. Bar on the top level had a good atmosphere. Good wifi most of the time.

Excellently run hostel with comfortable beds, spacious lockers, and clean facilities. However, two major Achilles' heels: (1) Bathrooms are absolutely freezing during the winter. Showers have plenty of hot water, but the bathroom will never warm up due to the huge drafts. (2) Wifi does not reach the rooms properly and is only reliable when in the lobby. As nice as everything else is, those two are deal breakers for me and I'd rather pay extra to obtain those amenities.

I had the best time staying at Wombats! I made lasting friends that I will never forget. I will only ever be staying here when I'm in Berlin.

Overall, I have a pleasant stay in this hostel. The hostel is strategicly located next to metro station and within short walking distance. The hostel also provide luggage storage facility due to early arrival as well as Kitchen. The dorm room has reasonable space for all occupants with a digital locker. Staffs are friendly and courteous, thanks to Ruth and Milenko as they have going beyond extra miles to assist me when i encountered a problem there.

The location of the hostel is perfect. I think it was a decent regular hostel..nothing special though like the Sant jordi chain in Spain. Anyways, its unfair to compare as my stay was for a day and I didn't really spend much time there. The German girl Tania at the counter was very friendly and helpful with the recommendations for places to visit. Overall I recommend this place for its location !

The best thing about this hostel is the huge kitchen which is well furnished with lots of utensils and even some free food that can be cooked.

Shower stalls a little short. Everything else excellent.

Good location, easy to get to different neighbourhoods. Rooms and washrooms were clean and well maintained. Bar upstairs is good to start off the night, but because the hostel itself is so big it can be hard to meet other travelers. Staff are friendly and very helpful.

expand and improve the indications of the web to get from the airport to the hostel, especially if you decide to go by train

It is my most beloved hostel chain ever. Everytime I am in a city where I can find a Wombats Hostel I stay with them. The location is ALWAYS great as also as the staff, cleanliness, atmosphere, facilities AND the breakfast even you have to pay for it. Guys, you do a great job! Keep on going like that.

Modern, clean and friendly hostel just a stones throw away from one of the main metro lines. Walking distance to Rosenthaler Platz with many bars and restaurants. The staff on reception were very efficient and helpful, the room was cleaned daily and beds very comfortable. Cannot go wrong for £8 a night - would definitley return!

Great kitchen, clean bathrooms and dorms, comfy beds. Not a bad location, can walk to main attractions, but maybe not in this cold. Most staff were quite helpful, but a couple of them weren't so much.

Besides from noisy/dirty roommates (not hostel fault) the place is pretty awesome, the kitchen is well equipped and the location can't be beat, had a great time too! Great bar upstairs and made really nice friends! Perfect, loved Berlin
