The location is perfect! Also fun bar in the lobby, helpful staff, clean rooms. However, we were on the first floor and got woken up by people yelling in the halls every night that we were there. If I come back to Budapest, I would look for a hostel in the same location but wouldn't necessarily stay at the Wombat again due to the noise.

Good hostel however not that easy to meet people as a solo traveller.

The hostal is very clean and facilities are nice. Location could not be better and the atmosphere is also great. If you are not looking to party though, this is not the hostal for you. While the location of the hostel is awesome, it is on one of the most crowded party streets in the city, if your room faces the street you will not sleep until 3 am. Someone was also hosting an after party on the room next door around 4:00 am!

Too noisy. Too many drunk, excited guest shouting around at night in the corridors. Bathroom not very clean. Not fancy enough design wise (facilities look like from the 70s).

The WiFi in the hostel needs to be upgraded, the signal wasn't great and often dropped. But lovely hostel otherwise

Dear Guest!We are really sorry that your were not satisfied.We would be grateful if you could tell us in a private e-mail what made you freel that our receptionists are not friendly, so we can make sure that it won`t happen again.Otherwise we hope that at least you were happy about staying in smaller dorm for the 8 bed dorm price. Hope to see you again sometimes!

Wombats Budapest is awesome,the bar was awesome although only having 1 bartender serving drinks was kinda annoying. Only 1 staff member was remotely interested during the coulpe of times i approached the reception, they all seemed pre occupied with what ever they were doing on the computers and although I was the only person standing there, all 3 ignored me for a good couple of minutes. a simple request to open the bag room was met with a 'sigh'. Apart from those Wombats was amazing !!

Hi there! We are more than sorry for what happened. Our receptionists are usually very helpful and friendly,there must something special about this case. Anyway, we`ll make sure that it never happens again. Also, usually we have 2 bartenders in the bar, but that night supposed to be very quiet,but it suddenly became unexpectedly busy. Hope to see you again in any of our other houses to give you better impressions.

Everything was fine, but the halls are full of loud drunk people throughout the night and it echoes. The hostel is very big, so its hard to meet anyone. The lionel ritchie lookalike bartender could not have been more rude.

Hi there! Really sorry for your unpleasant experiences, it definately shouldn`t happen. Next time pls feel free to come to reception anytime after the bar closed (latest 2 am) and it`s still noisy in the lobby. Otherwise we strictly keep the silence in the corridors after 10 pm. And sorry for the staff being not friendly, actually it never happened before and we`ll make sure that it won`t happen again!Cheers

One of the best hostels i've stayed at ! Highly recommend ! located in the centre of the city, near to metro and all attractions ! clean and modern rooms with lockers, clean bathrooms and showers, very friendly and helpful staff, nice common area with bar. Make sure you attend the free walking tour offered by the hostel !

This is a very well located and clean hostel. I found all the service working great. Personal were very friendly and helpful. The only problem is that wifi didn't work very well around the hostel and I had to go to the front desk to get a better coverage.

why not free internet as there is in so many other places a party hostel so can be very loud due to design

Hi there!Thanks for your feedback and sorry for the Internet trouble. We do have FREE WIFI in the whole house, and you only have to pay a symbolic price to use our PC-s just to avoid that the same guests sit there for hours. Hope to see you next time!

O absolutely loved this hostel, it was the best one I've ever stayed and the price was really good! The location was eacellent, super central and close to all the cool places in the city! Highly recommend.

Hostel was in a great location, was very spacious and bright and a good vibe. Staff were friendly and happy to help, phoned us a taxi to the train station so we didn't get ripped off too! Rooms were clean and spacious, bathrooms also very clean. Electronic key card entry to rooms which also controlled lockers which was great. Wifi was poor in the room but worked fine in the main area of the hostel.

Right on one of the main roads, location brilliant. Staff were great and helped us organise an airport shuttle. The free WIFI is slighly temperamental but can't fault the cleanliness or the rooms. Not relating to the hostel (which I would recommend) but a few of the places around the hostel consistently made 'mistakes' on receipts overcharging us by quite a lot so always double check!

Most of the things are very nice but it's quite noisy at night.
