It was a great hostel, only thing I would say is that organize some common activities so that people can mix well. Also, provide option to have a cheap dinner (many hostels do that)
Good location, very clean and comfortable. Amenities are all great, seemingly new hostel. Aside from our smelly, rude roommate this was everything we needed in Budapest. Quite large, and I had some travel partners so I can't speak for meeting people atmosphere but it seemed very lively at night in the bar. Recommend.
Wombats is a nice and clean hostel with a great design. The location of the hostel was also great as you can find many shops, cafes and bars near it and there is also a metro station close to the hostel. The breakfast was delicious.

The hostel and wombats' staff is excelent but the guests are a bit "unorganized": at the end of the day the kitchen was untidy and everything was dirty, what means that a lot of people didn't clean their own dishes.
For some this would be a perfect hostel. It's in a great area for nightlife, near the centre and has a bar and useful kitchen downstairs. However as a married couple who appreciate sleeping through the night, this hostel was too noisy with long corridors carrying noise all through the night. I would recommend this hostel to anybody going to Budapest for nights out, but wouldn't stay there again.
I loved my stay at wombats Budapest. The hostel is big, clean, funny, staffs are friendly and the roons are very good. I recommend all Wombats Hostel.
Huge! Clean & good staff but not the atmosphere I'm looking for in a hostel.
cozy room and clean but little noisy at night
located in the heart of city means less reliance on public transport. Clean and cosy environment...

The shower has no railing to keep the water from flooding the entire bathroom; this was paired, in my room, with a clogged drain, so the entire restroom had a wet floor from the second someone took a shower that day until the cleaners came the next day. Internet cut out semi-frequently and the staff didn't seem particularly keen on helping people or answering questions -- albeit there are a lot of people to deal with. Atmosphere is great, though, so if you can overlook the above, you'll have fun
Excellent hostel in a very central location 2 minutes from all three metro lines and right in the middle of the bar/restaurant area. Like Wombats in Munich it is big and very clean but too big so that its a little hard to meet and chat to new people. However everything else trumps!
The main (only) nationality to check into Wombats were Australians...but I didn't think it would be to this extreme. I love Australians but I don't get why they all have to group together and bash Canadians and Americans because "they're all just really stupid". After hearing a young Australian girl say this...the group nodding yes...I was like nope, this isn't for me. If you actually enjoy meeting other nationalities besides Aussies (home will still be there) don't stay here.
The common room/bar should be more attractive to the residents so people would go downstairs to pregame before going out. Nights of drinking games, "happy hours" as in the Berlin's Wombats would be nice.
everything is good. but i hope wombats has common shower system.
Great hostel, even better vibe, awesome meeting area and close to ruin bars and city centre just 5-10 minute walking distance. Definitely staying here when I'm in Budapest next. It just drags you in!
I strongly recommend Wombats Budapest! Its located in the city center, is very clean and goodlooking and has an excellent atmosphere!
Excelente Hostel, very secure. good Facilities. Laundry room is a little small, but at least they have one. The hostel is very clean, the breakfast was cheap but not very good in mine opinion.
Excellent hostel for partying and a great vibe! Huge place, great for meeting people! All staff were cool. Mohammad was particularly nice to us!! Great grnuine guy! Keep it up guys!
Superb location near the hub of the metro lines, what is important to save money on transport. Lots of bars and restaurants in the area. Big rooms, clean. No air conditioning for hot days. It is huge hostel with many places to socialize. The kitchen es well equiped, cleaned carefully every morning because the guests, in vast majority, are young people who do not care to leave a mess behind. The key for the room and the locker is the same and is a card, fantastic.
