Dear Guest!We are really sorry that your were not satisfied.We would be grateful if you could tell us in a private e-mail what made you freel that our receptionists are not friendly, so we can make sure that it won`t happen again.Otherwise we hope that at least you were happy about staying in smaller dorm for the 8 bed dorm price. Hope to see you again sometimes!

Wombats Budapest is awesome,the bar was awesome although only having 1 bartender serving drinks was kinda annoying. Only 1 staff member was remotely interested during the coulpe of times i approached the reception, they all seemed pre occupied with what ever they were doing on the computers and although I was the only person standing there, all 3 ignored me for a good couple of minutes. a simple request to open the bag room was met with a 'sigh'. Apart from those Wombats was amazing !!

Hi there! We are more than sorry for what happened. Our receptionists are usually very helpful and friendly,there must something special about this case. Anyway, we`ll make sure that it never happens again. Also, usually we have 2 bartenders in the bar, but that night supposed to be very quiet,but it suddenly became unexpectedly busy. Hope to see you again in any of our other houses to give you better impressions.

Everything was fine, but the halls are full of loud drunk people throughout the night and it echoes. The hostel is very big, so its hard to meet anyone. The lionel ritchie lookalike bartender could not have been more rude.

Hi there! Really sorry for your unpleasant experiences, it definately shouldn`t happen. Next time pls feel free to come to reception anytime after the bar closed (latest 2 am) and it`s still noisy in the lobby. Otherwise we strictly keep the silence in the corridors after 10 pm. And sorry for the staff being not friendly, actually it never happened before and we`ll make sure that it won`t happen again!Cheers

Highly recommend ! located in the centre of the city, near to metro and all attractions ! clean and modern rooms with lockers, clean bathrooms and showers, very friendly and helpful staff, nice common area with bar. Make sure you attend the free walking tour offered by the hostel !

why not free internet as there is in so many other places a party hostel so can be very loud due to design

Hi there!Thanks for your feedback and sorry for the Internet trouble. We do have FREE WIFI in the whole house, and you only have to pay a symbolic price to use our PC-s just to avoid that the same guests sit there for hours. Hope to see you next time!

O absolutely loved this hostel, it was the best one I've ever stayed and the price was really good! The location was eacellent, super central and close to all the cool places in the city! Highly recommend.

Right on one of the main roads, location brilliant. Staff were great and helped us organise an airport shuttle. The free WIFI is slighly temperamental but can't fault the cleanliness or the rooms. Not relating to the hostel (which I would recommend) but a few of the places around the hostel consistently made 'mistakes' on receipts overcharging us by quite a lot so always double check!

Bathrooms needed better cleaning and the cleaning staff never left enough toilet paper although we were 8 persons in the room. One roll is just not enough. Loved your breakfast.

Beware of the check out. The convenient lockers won't work past your 10am checkout.

Great building, clean, nice, modern. Close to the train station, close to cheap food options, along with heaps of restaurants and bars. Nice big rooms with air con, great big clean bathrooms. Good solid internet throughout the building. Very comfortable hostel to stay in and I'm fussy lol! Highly Recommend!!!!

One of the best, if not THE best hostel I've stayed at. Excellent central location, very helpful staff and plenty of tips and advice on the walls in reception. Rooms were always clean and had big lockers so that our stuff was safe. Cracking pizza cafe just next door. The shower was a power shower but the clip to hold it up had broken! The only aspect to improve is the very slow WiFi which is pointless as it doesn't work. Highly recommended, has to be one, if not the best hostel in Europe.

Thank you very very much!We try our best to improve the wifi, it`s really not as good as it should be! :( Hope to see you next time!

The hostel is huge and well decorated but it lacks atmosphere and the rooms aren't cleaned often. The location is really the best thing, you're in the centre of town. Its just an average hostel.

Excellent place to stay overall, very clean, wifi is acceptable but isn't the most important thing while you're away right! Nice people, comfy beds and security is fab! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we will definitely recommend it and return!

The Budapest Wombats hostel felt more like a hotel! Really really nice. I was very impressed with not only the facility but also the amounts of things to do in town and the helpfulness of the staff. Loved it.
