It was a really clean, tidy, modern and comfortable hostel. The staff helped out with any queries we had and assisted with printing off boarding passes, booking shuttles, etc... so it was really great. And close to lots of really nice cafes/bars/restaurants. Definitely would recommend.

Unfriendly staff, money stolen from pool table $25 AUD, but still money, overall though ruined our experience of Budupest as a whole. That being said there were a few nice staff but not many.

The location of Wombats was great - walkable to major attractions of Budapest. We had no need to take public transport except when we were entering/leaving the country. The hostel is very much catered to the younger crowd (drinking, clubbing). Although we did not join in the late nights out, we didn't find having such roommates much of a problem.

Good experience with Wombats, in Budapest the same as in Berlin, good quality, not to expensive, excellent atmosphere and opportunities to meet new people!

Amazing location, great staff who were really helpful with suggestions of what to do, lots of resources to help plan 1 day-3 day stays, should have more events to build community within the hostel. Extremely secure.

This hostel was amazing - having arrived from an awful night train the staff were helpful, the hostel was easy to find and the breakfast was good. We even got lwt into our room early. Then the bar was really fun and we met so many people at the hostel. I would definitely recommend this hostel and I hope to be back soon!

Was recommended this place but it's not really my thing. More like a cheap hotel where you have to make your own bed and share a room with others. Doesn't have the usual hostel atmosphere, very clinical and seems to be full of groups of ozzy kids. Staff all seemed pretty fed up and weren't really engaging but were friendly and helpful enough.

I booked a shuttelbus a day before i leave with Wombat´s hostel I had to be at the airport at 8 - 8: 15 AM . They told at the reception, if i leave at 7:30 its ok because the shuttelbus is on time and need 30-40 minutes. So the shuttel was not on time 15 minutes too late.at the reception a guy told me i don´t have to worry and only wait 1 minute.I arrive too late at the airport.the shalter had just closed. So i had to book a new fly for 85000 HUF = 305 € THANK YOU WOMBAT`S!!!!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear Guest! First of all sorry for the inconvenience! If we book a shuttle bus for you online, we always count 1 – 1,5 hours for flights insight of Europe extra to get through all the check-ins. So even if the receptionist tells you 45 min are enough to go to the airport, two hours in total to go to the airport and do the check in should be fine anyway. And if the airport shuttle is still late, it is not our responsibility. Sorry again.

Since the surroundings are bars or pubs, it could be quite noisy even at 11 or 12 o'clock at night. Besides, other customers ran at night on the hallway. This disrupted my sleeping. Apart from the above, it is an excellent hostel. I will definitely stay again next time.

Wombats definitely lives up to its true history of a five-star hotel converted into a five-star hostel. Lovely.

Its a good hostel, great stuff and grear facilities and excellent location but if you are traveling alone you have to think about it becouse its so big its difficult to meet people and the bar is not so good.

Centrally located and just a 2 min walk to the main areas. Nice place to meet new travellers. Charging point by your bed side (each bed) , good WiFi , good breakfast (for a good price ), nice lounge area. Loads of eating places just across the hostel. I would recommend this for a regular/starter backpacker.
