A bit far out from the main part of the city, but really close to the train station, and it's an easy walk to wherever you want to go. The hostel is fine, great kitchen!

Reasonable hostel if staying for a few nights, bar is quite boring, reception staff are friendly and approachable, location is right next to a main train station, surrounding places aren't interesting. it is average and not worth the money.

The wombat hostel and huge and more like hotels. They do provide all of the necessities and they're good for quick stays but not for meeting people and hanging out. Only stayed a night and it was great for that.

The hostel is close to everything you need, which is great. Very safe, the rooms are clean, the bathrooms too. But above all, the staff is really just great, so friendly and helpful. This is where you want to go next for sure!

The rooms were very nice and spacious and it was great having an ensuite bathroom! The common room facilities were also really nice and had plenty of space but the hostel was so big it had almost a hotel feel to it. This is great but as a solo traveller I felt the opportunity to meet others wasn't great. The kitchen was too small for the number of guests but other than these small things the hostel was very nice, clean and well decorated! Staff were also helpful and the free walking tour great!

It seems like a good place to meet other backpackers, and it's located right by the metro, so you can get to the center and other sights easily.

the best thing was it was close to the train station, the staff at the reception desk were all amazing and helpful, and the rooms were clean and you get free towels! my only downside was bfast was a little unorganized but just fight your way to the food. the location is great. it's right along the metro line and honestly you could walk to a lot of things.

The best location next to the train and bus station. Very clean and sophisticated hostel. The room was really neat with good facilities. Its not really a party hostel, but the hostel has everything else going for it. Plus I was able to leave my luggage in the luggage storage when I arrived and left. The only negative is I was looking for a party like a pub crawl the monday night I was there but couln't easily enough find one.

Such a great hostel with an amazing atmosphere and very nice staff. Not even 2 minute walk from train and underground station and a grocery store literally next door. Highly recommend this hostel. There's also a bar downstairs, which is always a plus!

This hostel wan't anything special but if you are just looking for a place to sleep it is a great choice. It was a little shabby but just in a dated way and the WiFi was horrible (there were times when the people at the front desk couldn't pull stuff up). However, the rooms and lobby were clean, the beds comfortable and as long as you don't get a roomie who snores, its a quite environment. The staff was also super friendly and helpful! They had some great recommendations of things in the area.

This hostel is great but the one thing it has going against it is that the beds and comforters are disgusting I took two showers one at night and one in the morning

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey, thanx for your feedback! We're trying our best to keep beds, comforters, pillows etc clean as this is superimportant. Though when it still happens that you find your bed too dirty, please next time tell reception as we than can change it and you don't have to take two showers (of course you CAN, but don't have to ;) )! We're very sorry that you had a bad experience and hope that you still had a nice trip :)! See you Kerstin

Great staff and just a fun place to be. They're willing to help with pretty much anything you need and it isn't hard to get to the main sites from the hostel. The bar is fun and they have wonderful suggestions of places to visit that wouldn't normally be on a tourist list.
