The Hostel was boiling hot, the radiators seemed to be pumping heat 24/7. Fortunately we could open the windows. I guess its just between summer and winter right now. The hostel is very large, IMHO a bit too big for what I usually like, it seemed quite an anonymous place - lucky there were 9 in our group! Generally the staff were helpful, the hostel was clean, the beds comfortable, and the price good - so its a good place to stay.

Hello!Thanks a lot for your feedback and we are sorry for too hot room.We have to have the heating son, cuz it can be chilly in April in Hungary,but you could have easily adjusted the thermometer in your room separately. We'll check it out right away, if it wasn't working properly in your room, but next time pls feel free to report any technical defaults even in the middle of the night. Hope you enjoyed Budapest anyway! :-)

Wombats is in an amazing location - near to the river, shopping centre, restaurants, clubs etc. We didn't have to use the trams or underground at all once we were there. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the hostel itself was really clean and spacious. The bar was really cheap and there was lots of communal space to meet other travellers. Only downsides was that the doors to the rooms were quite thin so you could hear people in the corridor and the wifi wasn't very good.

Wombats was very convinient and at a really good location, just walks away from the main shopping area and sights and also pretty neat restaurants. Great location for access to many pubs and ruin pubs too.

We enjoyed our staying in the hotel, everything was really very good which was not easy because it is a very large place where a lot of people come from all over the world.

Wombats is very nice because it is almost a Hotel: big rooms, big bathrooms, really good breakfast, very good location as well. The staff is ok, they help you but don't make that much of an effort that you see in smaller hostels or guesthouses. Also did not felt very comfortable to use common areas compared to other places. Finally, the wifi is terrible. Really, don't count on it. If you REALLY need it, you will have to go to Starbucks-like places. Even so, is a very good place to stay.

Hi there!Thanks a lot for your feedback.Yes,we are a big hostel and we try to get the best out of it: great comfy lobby to chill,proper seats&tables to get breaky together,big enough kitchen for more people to cook at the same time, bar for concerts and parties etc. Also,beside the busy check in/out times our staff is happy to socialize with all of you anytime and they are always ready to help you with anything 0-24h.And we are working on our wifi, sorry for that! :( All the best from Bp

It was great staying at Wombats. The hostel has a perfect location for young party crows as it is very close to the nightlife. the hostel staff was great and so are the rooms. The biggest problem is internet. At peak times, there is no possibility of getting on internet. There are a lot of users but since it is such a large hostel, they should do something about it.

Great bar to meet people. Good breakfast in the morning. Hostel is to large if you are looking to make friends and network. Also most Hungarian staff members are very very rude. It is like you are asking them for a favor every time you ask a question. But that's not a surprise all Hungarians are rude and disrespectful. Great country terrible people.

Great bar, good clean rooms, and a good overall environment. Almost more of a hotel then a hostel, but still worth it. Even some good places for lying down to cure the inevitable Budapest hangovers! Only negative is that the wi-fi is absolutely horrible here. They claim it's because we were there at a busy time, but still...something that needs to be improved given the capacity of the hostel.

really good hostel in a great location. the dorm rooms were a good size, didn't feel too squished together. each bed had a little reading light and a wall plug. wifi worked good in all the rooms. the breakfast is good value for the money, will definitely stay here again!

Problem with Internet. Wifi is working only around reception area. Room haven't television. I propose, If doesn't wifi connection in the room at least need a tv. Other everything is ok. Central of the city.

Hello! Thank you for the nice words and sorry for the wifi! We are working on it! As a hostel we focus on friendly athmosphere,good vibe,nice common areas where we`d like to get our guests together. I think TV in the rooms won`t help us to reach our aims, but we`ll think about it.All the best from Budapest

Everything about the hostel was good except when I checked in I wish the staff would have provided me with more information about the city (tips, places to go, places not to go, tours, or anything really). It ended up being just fine and I had a great time in budapest but a little more information about the city would have been appreciated.

Hi there!Thank you for you nice comment and we are really sorry if you missed something in Budapest.It was very busy here during your stay, so if you arrived during the peak check in hours it is possible that we could only provide you the most important info about the hostel and the neighbourhood, but next time please feel free to come back anytime to the 24h open recepetion to get some more tips. We are more than happy to help you with that. Hope to see you again sometimes!

Not bad... bar is good, common areas OK but a bit bleak, mattresses comfy... but it's an industrial size 500 bed hostel so it's a bit short of coziness and atmosphere. Staff are OK but seem too harrassed and overworked to be too friendly. Dorms are spacious. But noisy, you can hear EVERYTHING going on in the corridor

Hi there!Thank you for your useful feedback and we hope you enjoyed your stay in general.That`s true, that by check in/out time it can be extremely busy for our staff to socialize with the guests,but they always take their time to provide you the most imprtant insider tips and information.Also, since the reception is 24h open, you can always return if you forgot something or if you just need some company.Cheers from Budapest

Great location, for tourism and nightlife Lot of bars and restaurants close to the hostel. It is like a hotel, but with different beds and sharing the bedrooms. Great value for money. If I come back to Budapest, I will stay there without a doubt. The only thing that can Wombats could enhance, is the breakfast organization. Definetively, should include trays to carry the cutlery,and should doubl some stuff (toaster...),but anyway it is worth it the breakfast, is only "to reach r perfection!"
