The location of the hostel is perfect to enjoy Budapest


A fantastic hostel with great staff, bar and activities. The breakfast is easily the best value for money I've had at a hostel. Really clean, new facilities and staff were always helpful. The only let down is the wifi is almost non existent, barely worked in the 3 days I stayed, I had to go elsewhere to plan rest of trip and contact home which was disappointing. Otherwise I would definitely recommend!


In a fantastic location right by deak square which is a massive transport hub and close to all the ruin pubs. Pretty clean and comfy beds Let down by the absolutely awful wifi. When people complained staff said it was due to the hostel being full, I'm pretty sure this hostel is almostalmost always full - invest in a router for each level and guests will be a lot happier. None of us in my dorm get the locker to work so I had to keep my valuables in the safe at reception

Been traveling around Europe and always look forward to our stay at Wombats. Great people work there and so helpful all the time


Great location!


Hotel/hostel combo so it's lacking the unique style at some smaller backpackers. Very clean and modern though. Great part of the city!


Only stayed one night but amenities were really good. Not very social as its a large hostel with too many people. Staff were helpful and easy to deal with. They did stuff up my stay by not booking additional night but a misunderstanding I guess....


Worst WIFI ever! Seriously! It was so bad! It was slow and kept dropping out! Even near reception! But great location near lots of food and drink. Good fun! Cool bar crawl. Clean and air conditioning.


Bad wifi. Overrated hostel

Hi there!Thanks for your feedback and sorry for the unstabile wifi,however it works fine for most of our guests and least in the common areas.We`d appraciate if you`d tell us via e-mail what made you feel so disappointed in general, so we would have a chance to consider your complaints and improve the hostel.Thank you in advance and hope to see you next ime though...


It's a massive hostel so it can seem a bit impersonal, but it's clean and comfortable. Staff were awesome!


DISAPPOINTED. After staying in the fantastic Wombats in Berlin we were excited about Budapest but sadly it did not live up to expectations. Wifi was non existent all throughout the hostel even in communal spaces! Air con was poor and the hostel was unbearably hot throughout! Breakfast wasn't great- not much choice for the money. On the plus side our room was clean and spacious (just hot)! And facilities such as laundry, guest kitchen etc. were they good. Staff were helpful but slightly abrupt.

Hi there!Thank you for your feedback and we are very sad that you didn`t like your stay in Bp.In fact those were the HOTTEST days in the country with almost 40° and even with our working AC it was still much hotter than anyone would have expected.Some offices,schools were even closed.Also,most of our guests love our breaky,cuz the selection is wide and it is AYCEat.You are totally right about the wifi,we are constantly fighting with our provider and we `ll fix it asap.Cheers from Bp


Several light bulbs in the room didn't work and weren't replaced after we had asked. But we really appreciated the air conditioning!

Hi there!Wer are extremely sorry for your inconveince, it must have been an accident or lost information, cuz usually we quickly fix all the technical issues.Next time pls remind us however everything will be perfect- I can promise- for your next visit.Cheers from Budapest


Aircon a little iffy, no aircon in very hot common area, wifi only downstairs (in very hot common area)


It was very hot! The fan in the room didn't seem to have any effect. Also, it was very noisy even at 2am in the night.


Chill hostel


I'm inconsiously comparing my experience here with my experience in the same hostel but in Vienna where atmosphere was much better in terms of possibility to socialize in the hostel. Here in Budapest I only met the people from my room who were ok but too dirty and much younger than me. Yes we arrived and left the same day which is convenient, but I'm sure I left things behind because of the mess they had in the room. I was really making an effort to come home before them to take a clean shower

Hi there!We are sorry for your unpleasant experiences,but next time pls let us know if you don't feel coomfortable with your roommates,so at least we can try to give you a different room.But I think messy roommates in a hostel are not the hostel's faults...Usually the bar,lobby,kitchen and even the laundry room is very social here where we needed to put some chairs cause the guest were hanging out and chitchat there so much..:-)Anyway,sorry for your bad luck,I hope next time it'll be better..


Everything was very nice, clean and new :) EXCEPT THE WIFI WAS SH*T! I really thought that was ridiculous, I wasn't even able to instant message properly let alone talk or upload a instagram photo... I was realy anoyed by that.


The hostel itself was very nice and clean and accommodating. However the staff was unprofessional and unknowledgable. They didn't tell us anything about the area or our room. We asked a desk staff member about events going on at the hostel and he couldn't tell us and acted like it was a weird question. We had issues with our rooms and one staff member was incredibly rude and unprofessional, on top of being unhelpful. I recommend the hostel, but not the staff. The bar crawl staff was nice enough.
