As per normal with Wombats, it seems, the wifi is pretty terrible. However, there is a decent bar, a huge kitchen, the bedrooms and bathrooms are immaculate and its in a fantastic location. I'd definitely stay again!

some staff members are quite indifferent while doing their job and it feels like you are disturbing them with the questions

We could check in at 2 pm insted of 12 pm, because our room was not yet ready. Both lamps in our room were broken.

Dear Guest! Thank you for your feedback and we are really sorry the misunderstanding regarding the check in time. It is officially 2 pm as you can see on all booking websites and on our own website as well. Of course we try to make our rooms ready as early as possible, but sometimes you need to wait until 2pm. Next time please report any technical issues immediately, so we can fix them. Otherwise I think the lamps were not plugged in when you moved in. Sorry again and hope to see you next time!

Almost everything was top notch. Very clean, and the staff did a good job. For all good ratings I gave, this could be attributed to a low degree of interaction; didn't spend much time in the hostel to be honest! Security did seem rather low. While signs were posted saying that the facilities are for hostel stayers only, there was no visible security for that. I could definitely see someone very easily getting access to a room that they are not supposed to.

Hi there! Thank you for the useful feedback, hovewer you shouldn `t have worried about the security. It isn`t that easy to get into the floors and rooms cause all doors are locked all the time and only our guests has acces with their magnetic keycards.You also have your own security lockers for your valuables.Plus we have security cameras checked by the reception 0-24h and securiry guards also help us every evening to keep the strangers away. Hope to welcome you again in Budapest! :)

Very large hostel, well located and nice bright common space. Nothing incredibly special about it but certainly a good choice for a large group looking to book together.

The breakfast was awesome! And so cheap! I do like hostels where you get your own locker in your room without having to pay extra. So I appreciate that you get that here, and it is locked with the same card that you use for the doors, which is really good. They are also acctually big enough to fit your whole bag and things, which is not always the case. Overall a really good stay, with clean sheets plastic packed. Great location!

Wonderful. Felt like a hotel. Nachmarkt is a fun area--walking distance to the museum district and full of great shopping and restaurants. Definitely returning if given the opportunity.

The bar was alone all the time, and they closed too early.

Hello!We are very sorry that you were unlucky with socializing in our bar.Unfortunately (and luckily as well) there are too many cool places all around the hostel with free concerts,cool dj-s,amazing looking ruin bars,so sometimes it is just impossible to "keep" our lovely guests in our bar.Also,it is just the start of the season,so it is calmer than usually.So on these nights we need to close the bar earlier unfortunately.Hope you enjoyed your stay anyway! All the best from Budapest

Corridors ABSOLUTELY need a perfuming because of the smell like in the hospital! Pool and "balilla" need some reparation! Besides these two things, everything was near the perfection, room cleaning too!!! Well done, now we are WOMBATS too!!! 😁

The wifi was horrible, enough to ruin the hostel for me. Some staff were great, and gave great recommendations for restaurants, but others were just really mean and didn't seem like they wanted to help.

The common areas were great. The room not so much since 3 times in the middle of the night a loud mechanical noise woke us up, only stopping when we changed the temperature configurations.
