Wombats was such a nice hostel! It was practically like a hotel it was so nice. The rooms were very spacious, had nice showers and also was very clean. Also they gave you clean sheets pre-wrapped for the beds. I would 100% recommend anyone visiting Budapest to stay in Wombats! I had a great experience and would definitely come back!

I loved the Wombat. We arrived insanely early and they let us hangout in the common room which is huge. The staff was also so nice and willing to help. The rooms were a bit small, but manageable. The only complaint I have are the towels. The bath towels they provided were the same size as hand towels. Other than that I would tell anyone to stay here and great location!

The hostel was located really close to the main square and right next to the Jewish District (great food). Only thing that could've made it better is if breakfast was included.

It was the worst wombats stay we´ve ever had. Of course the location is amazing but that a horde of irish people terrorized the whole 2nd floor on the weekend was not acceptable.(For Details ask, not enough place here) For what are sitting 3 guys at the Check in, when they only watch movies?!? If i know there are guests who are dissregard the rules, i´ll check that out every 20 minutes, to clear the situation. In Vienna, where we was in all 3 wombats we´ve never had such problems. BR, Sebastian

Also, please feel free to come to the reception anytime you need us, not only in the morning. We hope to see you again to give you a much better impression!

Close to all the main sites/metro to get to the sites. The breakfast was good value for the price 1000HUF. Stayed in a private double which was nice and spacious although it did smell like paint - maybe it was freshly painted. the bathroom floor was dirty with hair all over it, but other than that it was clean.

Great location, close to bars, sights and the metro and supermarket is at the end of the street. It can get noisy at night so bring earplugs. Wifi can be patchy Huge rooms and a huge hostel. Very clean and tidy. My room was at the end of a very long hall so had no issues with noisy people in the halls at night. Checked in separately to my friend and the girl on reception was able to put us in the same room. I'd recommend this hostel.

Good facilities, security and location as all the Wombats Hostels. However the staff guys in this particular hostel were not friendly. Every time they answered any of my questions was like something wrong with it not sure why.. Specially the guy that was at the front desk on 02/26 night and the girl also on 02/27 night I think wombats it loosing some of the traditional hostel culture and its starting to convert in something like hotels chains

Dear guest!Thank you for your feedback, however it would be more useful, if you could specify your complaint, not just talking in general. Anyway, we are very sorry for your impressions and hope that you`ll give us another chance to show you our friendly atmosphere which we do have!

I was locked out of the whole hostel by staff at 4 am and no apology

Dear guest,Thank you for your useful feedback.We are very sorry for this inconvenience and hope that it didn`t destroy your Budapest experience.We have no lock out, no curfew in the hostel thanks to our chip/key-card system and 24h reception. The extra sneak on the main door is part of our building`s classical design and it was probably locked by another guest by mistake.We make sure that it never happens again!Sorry again and hope to see you next time!

My 2nd visit to this great hostel - best chain I have stayed in

This is the place to stay in Budapest. The location is in the heart of Pest, close to shopping, entertainment, transportation, restaurants and tourist sights. The facilities are the best I have ever seen in a hostel and the staff is friendly, helpful and accomodating.

Its really a good hostel, but looks like more as a hotel. It's in front of one of the main pub's streets. High recomend!!!
