This hostel is a gem in the heart of Budapest. It is on the Pest side and surrounded by great restaurants and bars. No more that a 5- 10 minute walk from everything. The atmosphere was more like a hotel and everyone was friendly and welcoming. Wombats was the cherry on top of a great trip.

Very spacious communal area, huge kitchen, cosy bar with friendly bar staff. Clearly a converted hotel with a great marble staircase leading up to dorms. Dorm was the perfect size, comfortable beds with reading light and socket, key card security lockers, huge bathroom and air conditioning. Great location by Peter's Basilica, the Synagogue, and Erzsébet tér. Loads of lovely bars and restaurants on one's doorstep, as is the tram. Buda Castle and Hero's square both walkable.

Hostel was very big, more like a hotel and full of very young people. Staff was rude and not helpful at all which made the stay not so nice. Location was great and all the bars and restaurants are near. Free walking tour was very good.

Excellent hostel, paid 20euro a night for a four bed dorm and the room was amazing, very spacious, clean, power shower and comfy bunk beds. The guest kitchen was big and had everything we needed. Great location in the centre of everything. Great value for money. My only issue was with the staff that were on reception for our stay. They were strangely unhelpful for hostel staff and uninterested in trying to help you. They seemed very snappy when you asked then a question, I saw them snap a lot

Great hostel, would definitely recommend. The rooms are big, clean bathrooms. Excellent location, this street is opposite the hostel and has so many cool bars and cafés. Would stay again!

Great central location by a lot of the sights and nightlife. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Yes, it is a large hostel, but if you go to the bar in the lobby it's easy to meet people. Only complaints are the wifi is overloaded and the bar can be quite hot. Breakfast is a bit overpriced for what you get but it is convenient.

I loved Wombat's. The atmosphere, location, and facilities were amazing! The building is easy to find and the staff was friendly enough. I felt that security was a little lax (able to come/go out the main entrance without a room-key even after certain hours). All-in-all, I will definitely be looking to stay at Wombat's next time I'm in Budapest.

Hello!Thanks a lot for the nice feedback, great to hear that you had fun! :-) We do close the main entrance door at 10pm so one can only come in with a keycard and we also have a security guard from that time till the morning, not mentioning the security cameras, so no worries!Hope to see you again soon!

Great stay at wombat! The location in amazing and you can basically walk anywhere. A little noisy at night (it is in the middle of bar central!).

The otherthings were all good. But I couldn't connect wifi in my room! I don't know why. But you'd better use wifi in corriodor or common area

Hostel is in a wonderful location, right near the bars. It would be fair to classify this as a party hostel, and while I was there Contiki, Top Deck and Busabout made frequent stops. If you're a little older, or not a fan of the group tour vibe, this could be a bit of a problem for you. The staff could occasionally be a little less than helpful or snappy, but overall they did try. Our room didn't get cleaned once while we were there, and the bathroom was pretty filthy. Free breakfast was solid.

Awesome hostel. Horrible internet!

Really rate this hostel. Location wise it's very good, easy walking distance to the river, the Baths and the 'ruined pubs' etc. Dorms were large, comfy and clean and the bathrooms were excellent. Although we didn't go on them, there's free walking trips and outings during the week too. Would definitely recommend.

Horrible wifi-connection, it is assumable that in a quality youth hostel one youngster should be able to update his facebook and tell the world how great the Wombat's is, but no.

Hi there! Thank you for the nice feedback, and sorry for the wifi connection. The fact is that we definitely should and will improve it, but it`s very difficult to be good enough for more than 400 users who are logged in at the same time some with even more devices. Please tell your friends in a cool bar instead of facebook that otherwise you liked Wombat`s! :-) Cheers

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! The staff are fantastic - amazingly helpful and hilarious! The facilities are great - everything you need in a hostel. It is clean and comfortable and has a great atmosphere. Also, you can't beat the location.
