There's nothing really to complain about the hostel. It's really clean, the facilities are good, staff will help you out with everything you need but... It's just really big and maybe a bit too clean. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but I personally need a bit more character. But when it comes to so called "chain hostels", Wombats is by far the best and actually good value for your money. The common area is good, equipped with a nice bar, a pool table and plenty of places to sit and hang out

Excellent location and a very friendly staff; Hostel has a good feel to it; More provisions / cleanliness in the toilet would make it a best in class hostel for the price range they charge

When I arrived, it seemed like the McDonalds of hostels. It was this mammoth machine. However my initial prejudice was softened at evening drinks and the very amicable staff at the front counter, who were really helpful. The wifi is no good at all when there is a lot of traffic and is only working downstairs. The kitchen and washing facilities were great, the rooms spacious and well-ventilated. All in all I really enjoyed the socialiable atmosphere and bang for the buck.

Very very very big hostel. Wifi is bad... Awesome lobby, nice bar, great location in Budapest. Too big to create a nice atmosphere actually and meet people easily. The breakfast is ok. Too bad they did not create a terrace on the glass roof

Great facilities, huge rooms, comfy beds and clean bathrooms. Perfect place to stay in Budapest because the location is so central and it's really good value for money. The only thing I'd say is it probably isn't the best place for a solo traveller as it's so huge that meeting people is quite difficult! So the atmosphere's not great, but other than that it is a perfect hostel! And you can always do a pub crawl to meet people :)

This hostel prides itself as being voted the cleanest hostel worldwide. How this is possible is very puzzling. Cleanliness was average at the very best. The biggest problem, however, was wifi. It was virtually non-existant. Any page as simple as google took several minutes to load. I spoke with staff. They said the it was so slow because they had over 400 guests. This is no excuse! If the hostel has the capacity for 400 guests, then they should install a wifi which can cope with 400 guests.

The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Hostel is very well located in front of the Gozdu Passage with amazing bars and very close to the famous "romkerts" (Szimpla, etc.) However: dirty room and the bathroom was particularly disgusting (floor) and smelt like sewers. The cleaning lasts 1 minute and was clearly not done properly. Toilets near the reception were not clean either. A bit disappointing for a wombats hostel !

Really good experience. Was a good place to drink and meet people but also quiet and respectful when sleep was needed!

Really friendly hostel with a great set up to meet fellow travellers. The type of shower meant that the bathrooms in the dorms got flooded quite easily so maybe if a mop or something was provided in the room that would help. All in all a good value and fun filled stay.

The hostel is in a great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, I could not get a good night's rest because people were partying in the bar and in the hallways until 4 or 5 in the morning. The hostel apparently has quiet hours but they don't seem to be enforced. I was looking for a place to get a good rest after long days of sight seeing but I left Wombats exhausted. If you are looking for a place to relax, I wouldn't recommend Wombat.

Great location, really walking distance from most atractions we went to. The staff were very helpfull and friendly as well. The room as great, very clean! The only but was that the kitchn was not very well equiped. It stated to not use knifes as can openers but we had no choice because we searched everywhere (even asked other people to help) and nobody could find a can opener. Besides from that it was a great place, would definetly stay here again ! =)
