This hostel prides itself as being voted the cleanest hostel worldwide. How this is possible is very puzzling. Cleanliness was average at the very best. The biggest problem, however, was wifi. It was virtually non-existant. Any page as simple as google took several minutes to load. I spoke with staff. They said the it was so slow because they had over 400 guests. This is no excuse! If the hostel has the capacity for 400 guests, then they should install a wifi which can cope with 400 guests.

The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Hostel is very well located in front of the Gozdu Passage with amazing bars and very close to the famous "romkerts" (Szimpla, etc.) However: dirty room and the bathroom was particularly disgusting (floor) and smelt like sewers. The cleaning lasts 1 minute and was clearly not done properly. Toilets near the reception were not clean either. A bit disappointing for a wombats hostel !

Really good experience. Was a good place to drink and meet people but also quiet and respectful when sleep was needed!

Has a great atmosphere with a good common area and bar. Staff were helpful with explaining where places were etc. Rooms have lockers to keep valuable items in which we found very helpful and reassuring. Breakfast is very well equipped lots of things to choose from.

Really friendly hostel with a great set up to meet fellow travellers. The type of shower meant that the bathrooms in the dorms got flooded quite easily so maybe if a mop or something was provided in the room that would help. All in all a good value and fun filled stay.

The hostel is in a great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, I could not get a good night's rest because people were partying in the bar and in the hallways until 4 or 5 in the morning. The hostel apparently has quiet hours but they don't seem to be enforced. I was looking for a place to get a good rest after long days of sight seeing but I left Wombats exhausted. If you are looking for a place to relax, I wouldn't recommend Wombat.

the staff were so unbelievably helpful. The rooms are big and spacious and have air con. They offer a nice breakfast. The bar is a great place to start of the night and meet people. It's a great price, great location and very cool.

Great location, really walking distance from most atractions we went to. The staff were very helpfull and friendly as well. The room as great, very clean! The only but was that the kitchn was not very well equiped. It stated to not use knifes as can openers but we had no choice because we searched everywhere (even asked other people to help) and nobody could find a can opener. Besides from that it was a great place, would definetly stay here again ! =)

This hostel was like a hotel it was amazing. It's huge and has lots of space, kitchen and the rooms were great. Only thing for improvement some of the guys from the front desk, when you would ask a question instead of answering a question they would point out how you could have answered the question yourself. By pointing it out on the wall. I didn't understand why they couldn't just answer the question then show them where to get more info later.

Generally positive experience, and the security was good. The hostel was clean and spacious as well. However, wifi connection in the room was very unstable which was disruptive as we needed the internet.

Pretty good for a big hostel. Get everyone involved very well, and the bar downstairs is excellent for the evenings. Only thing was we had an exceptionally weird guy in our room, but thats not the hostels fault.

Perfect location, right in the heart of the pest side. It is close to public transport, supermarkets and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and willing to help with any problem or question. The bar is good. It's cheap, but it closes relatively early. The huge kitchen makes it easy to prepare your own meals.

The best hostel in town! I always stay there.
