Hostelworld says:

Wombats City Hostel was rated the most popular in Munich at the 2011 Hoscars and we're not surprised. This friendly hostel offers a lot of nice extras to guests, such as parking in the basement, a fully-stocked bar and a frequently praised all-you-can-eat breakfast. We particularly like the hammocks and bean bags in their glass-roofed courtyard, where travellers can relax even during poor weather. They're located just 10 minutes' walk from the Oktoberfest and most sights in the city centre, as well as near the U-Bahn and international trains at the Hauptbahnhof.

Property Information:

Of all the hostel-hotels popping up in Munich this pert little number does the best job in combining style with location. Past the glassed-in courtyard you'll find a friendly expat staff, pleasant if modular furnishings and private showers and toilets in every room.' (Lonely Planet)

Welcome to our comfortable baby in Munich!
We're just a stone's throw from the main train station which also serves as the major public transportation hub.
It’s not much further to the old town (5 minute stroll or 2 stone throws) and we're within easy walking distance of the Oktoberfest grounds (if you still CAN walk…better don’t throw stones).

We have amply dimensioned dormitories and most doubles come with their own terrace. We're especially proud of our air-conditioned, glass-roofed courtyard with real trees, real hammocks, semi-real (Beware of the wormholes!) beach chairs and beanbags.

If you travel by car, you can park it in our basement.

The five reasons why Wombats City Hostel became a destination by their own right are:

Outstanding cleanliness!
Unfortunately not something to take for granted but we do take this seriously: we've won Hostelworld's 'Cleanest Hostel Worldwide' award. Twice.

Excellent amenities!
We're centrally located and close to the trains and public transport.
There's maximum security with smartcard access for the front door, the floors, the rooms and your locker. All our rooms come with comfy wooden beds, private shower, toilet facilities and lockers for your belongings.
You'll get a set of bed linen, a small welcome drink, Wi-Fi (only on the ground floor; we still fight the machine!) as well as our self-made city map with all essential information about the going-ons in town.
All that for FREE! …aaaaawesome.
In addition we offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, internet terminals, laundromats, 24/7 reception service and our lively womBAR serves cheap drinks and food.
There’s - of course - no age limit, no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules whatsoever.
(If there are rules they are not stupid - at least in our world. But since we define what’s stupid and what’s not there’s no point in arguing….just kidding.)

We're the hostel by travellers for travellers!
We've travelled the world ourselves - so we know firsthand what you need and what you expect from us. We care for you and your feedback.

Great social atmosphere!
We make sure that you'll feel safe and welcome here. When you've been on the road all day long, seeing sights and all those freakin’ museums, it's cool to have a nice scene at the hostel where you can have some beers, talk and make friends. This will make your stay memorable! Many a traveller stayed quite a bit longer than primarily intended.

Wombats is no cheap dirt…
You may well find a cheaper place to crash in town, but none where you get more value for your money.

We were voted the Best Hostel Chain Worldwide at the 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Hoscars. We promise to keep it up!

We look forward to welcoming you!

  • Wombats City Hostel Munich says

    We're right next to the Old Town so all the attractions are close! The one place I definitely recommend that guests visit is the Hofbräuhaus, obviously. That's why everyone comes to town - but I recommend not spending a lot of time with a tourist trap. Munich also has one of Europe's oldest public parks, the Englischer Garten. It's twice the size of New York's Central Park, has a lake, a standing wave for surfers, a nude beach and no less than four huge beer gardens.
    The main age group of our guests is 19 to 29, like in almost every other hostel. In contrast to these, though, we don't only attract one set of people. Quite a lot of our guests don't usually stay in hostels but give it a try at Wombats because we've been recommended. I often see couples in their 50s, or families, and they're just as satisfied as the 19-year-old American college kid who spends most of his time, err, getting wasted at the hostel bar. For fun around here, our guests like to hang out in our air-conditioned, glass-roofed patio. It's got beach chairs, hammocks and bean bags - I've spent a lot of memorable time there!

    I've had a great stay, the front desk staff was very helpful and kind. I would just include a towel with the bed sheets.

Cancellation Policy

This property has a 1 day cancellation policy.
Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay, unless otherwise stated below (see 'Things to Note' information).

Things to Note

The rates given on this site don't include breakfast. Our all-you-can-eat continental buffet brekkie costs €4.50. You don't need to 'reserve' for breakfast, just come 'round to the reception in the morning if your belly claims its independence. Please note that there's no check-in before 2pm (we need to clean the rooms first!). You may leave your stuff with the reception though and come back later. There's sometimes a weird remark on your booking confirmation that your booking is split up into different rooms. Please ignore this, it's a software bug. There are human beings in charge at the hostel and they won't separate you from your friends or make you move to another room every day. If you want to cancel or amend an existing booking please write us an e-mail until 24h before arrival: office@wombats-munich.de. (Please don�t call since we need a written proof.) As this is a guaranteed booking (we keep your reservation no matter what arrival time you have selected) we have to charge the amount of your first night's stay on your credit card in case of a no-show. Our CANCELLATION CONDITIONS are as follows: small reservations UP TO 6 PERSONS: until 24H BEFORE ARRIVAL (72H during OKTOBERFEST) group bookings of MORE THAN 6 PERSONS: until 7 DAYS BEFORE ARRIVAL If you are travelling with children, please note, you will have to book a private room-that means either all 6 or 8 dorm beds or a double/twin room to be used only by yourselves. It is not possible to share your bed with your kid or the room with your kid and other travelers. After your stay, you'll receive an email which gives you the chance to let us know what you liked and what you didn't like. We appreciate your feedback! Quite a few things you will find in our hostel were not our idea - your fellow travellers suggested them! For a small fee you can park your car in our garage. We�re SO sorry but there's no kitchen. It�s a shame, we know. Unlike our other hostels, Wombats Munich does not have a communal kitchen because there are some ridiculous laws which make it almost impossible...besides that, our landlord wouldn't let us to avoid fire hazard. Check. Again we truly apologize but it�s like trying to scream down the Great Wall of China if you intend to complain about that - there just won't be a kitchen...ever. -sad- Cheers for reading this and have a nice trip to Munich. We look forward to welcoming you! Your wombat�s crew
