Totally liked this hostel! It is actually much more like a hotel. Breakfast is pretty good for 3.5 euros. Location is also perfect. I would stay here again.

This hostel use to be a hotel; therefore, it is a good size. There are over 400 beds in this hostel. The size of the hostel makes it difficult to meet people. They also don't host any events....lame. I would definitely start there again if I go with a huge group.

But the worst part was they had bed bugs in my room only time iv ever ha them and when I told them they weren't even suprises like they already knew when they put me in that room worst hostle iv stayed at in Europe was not happy

Dear Guest! First sorry if you felt uncomfortable in our Hostel. You can always meet people in our bar or during breakfasttime. We even would give you a more occupied room if you want! Because of the second issue: We would never put people intentionally into such rooms. Please understand we deal with this issue very carefully and with priority. If you ever feel to come back to Budapest im sure you will get a different impression of our house.

Fantastic location, but may be too close to the city centre, the entrance always busy, one of the guest's luggage being stolen while checking..just have to be careful with your belonging.

On par with wombat's other hostels except the kitchen in Budapest is incredible. Internet is finicky as they tend to be In big hostels.

Great hostel. Everything that you need is present: an ever present staff, a dining room, a kitchen, seats to take a nap, a bar, etc. Our room was also as it should be. The hostel is quite huge so it's probably not the most cosy one, but apart from that, the amount of people wasn't a problem at all.

I still hardly believe the Wombats is only a hostel: to my mind, it is nothing but a real hotel! Everything was really fine, it's by far the best Hostel i've ever stayed at. Will definitely remain my first choice for my next time in Budapest.

really enjoyed staying at wombat! we have had great experiences with this company. you can always expect clean rooms, lockers, lights next to your bed, easy check in/out, good location and loving staff! thanks to the bartenders for keeping us company at the wombar and at a bar down the street. great environment, definitely will be back

Wombats is a huge facility. More of a hotel than a hostel. It was clean and modern. They offered breakfast for 1000 forints - all you can eat - definitely worth the money. Staff were helpful. Only downfall was the tour organized through the hostel did not take place because there were only 2 participants- got recommended an outside company for a walking tour but annoying we had to change our plans for the day.

great location, 5 min. walk from the Great Synagoge, St.Stephen's Basilica and Andrassy street. The staff is very helpful, rooms are spacious and clean. it's also a nice place to hang out as there is a bar in the hostel and you get a welcome drink voucher upon arrival.

Definitely a party hostel. If you are looking for a raucous crowd, this is your place. However, if that isn't your scene, it gets a bit overwhelming.

Huge hostel with a bit of a party atmosphere without being crazy. Nice and cheap for what is offered, and a good location close to a lot of bars and clubs.
