This was a great hostel for our first night stay in Budapest, it was clean and felt very secure. However it was lacking it atmopshere but this could of been due to the time of year we went in January.

Still had a nice stay here but not as nice as it was a few years ago when I last stayed. Things are getting a little run down, and while we were there there were three different groups/tours, so about 150 18 year olds. Not my idea of nice atmosphere.

Hello there! Thanks for your comment! We are sorry that in this time you were not satisfied with our atmosphere, but in winter time we have to accept groups as well to fill our hostel. Hopefully the next time you will find everything as you wish :) Regards from Budapest

The hostel it's great!! Especially because of the atmosphere!!!! The staf is really good, the location perfect and the building amazing!! Eventough being recommendable, I didn't like that the wifi was really bad and that it had one bathroom in the room (in mine there was 8 person, so it was complicated to use it)

Hello there! Thank you very much for your nice comment! The wifi is weak sometimes in the room, but this can happen when a lot of people use it. Hope to see you again! Regards from Budapest

This place is great! Great value for the money, and great location. It's a very large hostel so the atmosphere is a little odd and it's definitely more of a party hostel. It's still a great place though. I'd definitely stay here again when in Budapest.

I really loved this hostel! The location is just perfect, right in the middle of everything: restaurants and bars, shopping street nearby. The lobby is amazing, really huge! Their own bar is also nice! Although the staff working at the bar were a bit slow, and prices high compared to other places. I'd say this is a place for young people. The walls are not very thick so sometimes it was a bit hard to sleep when there were noisy people in the room next to mine. I would go again!

The dishwasher was dirty for the days and it was gross.

Hello there, thanks for your comment. We are sorry for your bad experience with the kitchen. Sometimes there are so many people around, and most of us hate to do the dishes on a holiday. Our cleaning staff tries to make the whole hostel clean, but even if they start a program on the dishwasher and we don't wait the machine to finish it then its almost impossible to make it clean. We hope to see you again, and we can show you that we can be better:) Cheers from BP

Internet is terrible and had no hot water for showers one morning. Overall pretty average for how much it costs compared to the other hostels in Budapest.

A fuss-free stay typical of a Wombat hostel. Clean with all the essential amenities and helpful staff. Location was awesome as it was near the nightlife area. Probably not the best for solo travel as it was a big hostel and not as easy to meet up with new people.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there! Thank you for your feedback. In this case when somebody is alone we try to offer them some of our services like Pub crawls, free walking tours or the bar in our hostel. We know that for a solo traveler is more difficult to find some company but when you feel alone just come to the reception, and we will find out something cool for you :) Hope to see you again!

Wombats are great - big, clean rooms; electronic lockers; friendly staff; kitchen; & a cheap bar with a good atmosphere. The location is fantastic, around the corner from the main strip of bars/restaurants. We did encounter a few small issues: the internet was very temperamental and the bathroom had an unpleasant smell. Our room was also very hot, despite changing the temperature gauge. But overall, I would still stay here (or with Wombats) again, they're great hostels for young backpackers!

Hi there, thanks for your nice feedback. We are sorry about the smell and the heating problem, maybe your room was on the top floor where we only have skylights, they are tricky. We hope to see you again, and hopefully we can show you that we can be better:)

I stayed here with three of my friends and we loved it! The hostel is in a perfect location, the staff members are friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice, the common room is big, and the breakfast is good for the price. The only problem that we had was that there were men who seamed to be a lot older than us girls in the room with us; that was kind of uncomfortable, but other than that we loved our stay and would 100% return.

Hi there, thanks for all the nice words:) We are so happy, that you liked it here, and we are sorry the age difference, but you know, in a hostel you can never know who is gonna be your roommate, but if you have any kind of problem with them, you can ask the reception anyí time to change a room, or find any kind of solution. So we hope to see you again soon:)))

Facilities were stylish and cool. Early more staff was grumpy.

Hi thanks for your feedback, we really appriciate it, also we are sorry for our grumpy staff, we are humans, and before our first coffee, we are just as grumpy as everyone in the world. So we hope next time we can show you our brighter side:) Cheers from Bp

The conditioned air system of our room didn't work, so we had to open a window which was 4m from the floor. Quite and adventure.

Can't rave about this place enough! Clean tidy rooms with plenty of space. Secure with keycards to corridor and to your room. Good bar with live music downstairs. Very cheap beer and happy hour everyday. It's absolutely smack bang in the centre of Budapest and within walking distance of all the main attractions. There is a metro station 100yards away from the hostel and getting to and from the airport is a breeze. 5/5 I would recommend this place to anyone!

I stayed there 2 nights, first night in a 6 bed girls room, second in a private room. Private room was perfect, the 6 bed room not so well, girls where a little bit unorganized and they ate Inside the room so the room was smelly and with flies. But the hostel in general is just great, very safe, great service, great staff, they have so much to offer, it's been the best hostel I've stayed in so far. I highly recommend it!
