We had a great time in Budapest, and at the hostel. It's in a great location in the Jewish District, very close to a lot of bars and restaurants. The rooms are large and clean, and the staff are happy to help out with directions and recommendations.

Honestly Wombats is a very large, impersonal hostel that has more of a hotel feel. The facilities are excellent except the kitchen could do with some more items such as knives and a toaster. The pool table is not in great shape. It suits large groups like bus tours of young people. I would recommend, it's nice and clean and comfortable.

Hi there! Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry for your inconveniences. We already replaced the missing kitchen utensils. And yes, we are a large hostel, but we try to use all the advantages of our size: large common area to socialize, cosy bar to meet new people, big guest kitchen to cook together and I`m happy to say that most of our guest find their own way to have fun with us! I really hope that you`ll give us another chance to prove it! :-))

Wombat's was a fantastic place to stay! City centre, easy to get pretty much everywhere. The building is immaculate and secure. It would be nice to see a little more cooking utensils in the kitchen. It was adequate but not super guest friendly.

Great place walking distance from all the reon bars plus a cool bar in the hostel. Rooms were clean except a little noisey and the towels were like hand towels.

Hello!Thanks a lot for the nice feedback and sorry for the small towels. This is a free/extra service and unfortunately we can`t guarantee to have all the time enough large towels for all the guests in house. Sometimes we run out of them and then we use the small ones until the new delivery arrives. Sorry again!

Hello!Thank you for the feedback and sorry for the window problem. In each room there is a stick with which you can easily open the roof windows. If it was missing or broken you could have easily asked help from reception. Next time pls feel free to do so! Hope to have you here again sometimes!

Loved it! Excellent location within the city but also easy to find from the main train station. The best pizza ever is right next door!! Great bar area to meet other travelers and the kitchen has everything you need (accept cups).. Wifi was pretty bad but you don't go to Budapest to sit on your phone. Would return and recommend

Kind of a party hostel but the rooms were very quiet and comfortable so no complaints here! Good location, tons of excellent pubs and restaurants nearby. Really enjoyed the wombats experience and would definitely stay in other wombats hostels in the future.

The wifi was so bad ! We can not use it at all !

The only possible negative would be that the wifi doesn't work consistently throughout the entire hostel, but that is a very small negative compared to everything wlse being perfect!

This was a great hostel. I was in the four bed dorm, which was fantastic, although it was heartbreakingly expensive. Drinks specials at the bar were good. I'd stay here again, although I would probably stay in a cheaper room.

The room was wonderfully warm (not without importance during a New Year stay!) and the breakfast was just great, and very good value for money.
