Only bad point : way too big, it looses the spirit of a hostel

The atmosphere was poor as a solo traveller, I would recommend staying at a smaller more personal hostel so it's easier to make friends. I thought the women on the desk was impatient and somewhat rude when I asked for some advice on how to see the sights of Budapest. This was unlike the Wombats Hostel at Vienna who were much more helpful, so maybe take a leaf from their book. The halls were full of kids running up and down and shouting until 5 which cost me sleep and I felt tired on my travels.

Hi there! Thank you for your review and we are deeply sorry for your unpleasant expreinces. It would be a great help if you could tell us in a private mail what exactly mad you feel that our receptionist was not helpful.And yes, we try to do our best to make the atmosphere cosier, but most of our guest find the place&time for getting know each other in the bar,guest kitchen, during breakfast or even with having fun in the laundry room! :-) Hope to see you next time!

Big hostel but facilities are great and kept clean. Had a double private room which was about double the size of ones in hotels, even dorm rooms I caught glimpses off appeared quite spacious. Well equipped kitchen, laundry, lots of common areas, use of boardgames, books and computers. There's a bar in the hostel although we found cheaper drinks elsewhere. Very good location, right in the middle of the city, Pest side. Wifi worked great in room.

Best hostel I've stayed on my trip, it's pretty big but so easy to meet people in the large comman area/bar. Staff were super helpful and friendly. I have to say best location in he whole of Budapest, so close to get everywhere and there are so many trendy stores/cafés/bars and places to eat a step outside the hostel! Couldn't recommend this place enough.

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.

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).

Perfect in every way. We stayed in a 4-bed dorm which was large and had an ensuite bathroom. Clean. Friendly staff. Within walking distance of all mayor sights.

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

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
