Wombats City Hostel Berlin

Berlin, Germany

Except for its location by a side street which could be noisy in the night during sleeping hours and the loud ruckus from drinkers hanging outside the adjacent bar after closing hours (past midnight), this hostel would have been much better.

Generator Hostel Hamburg

Checked into a 8-bed room on a Saturday not realizing that the other 7 occupants were alcoholic Brits! They drunk beer, bourbon & vodka with coke in the room. Came back more intoxicated at 4am, woke me up, shook my hands and kept their nuisance until 7am! Changed my room and came to know that these group of Brits were regulars on weekends. Some other punks and rowdy ones watching a live EPL game on Sunday would definitely made house guests running through the door exit when a goal was scored!

Hi, Thank you for sharing your impressions with us. I regret that your room companions were caring that less. We have a clear rule, that no alcohol is allowed in the rooms and our security tries to get people to follow the rule. Hope the incidents you experienced do not prevent you of coming again in the future. Regards, Sven Heberling Asst. General Manager

Free herbal-mix in the bar after breakfast time and being right next to the touristy red light district would appeal to most people. Smokers definitely loved the place while non-smokers avoided the bar.

Stayed in a 6-bed room which was rather cramped but for the price and location in expensive Zurich, it was considered a good deal. One other consideration was the noises from the pubs nearby which continued well past midnight.

Everything was good except for my 'basement' room with just a tiny window opening right onto the public pavement. Aircon was turned on to shut out the street noise but could still hear and feel the occasional trams rambling on the tracks. But credit to the hostel for keeping the room so clean and comfortable though!

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your time, and kind words for our cleanliness and comfort :) We are sorry for the noise, it is downside of this location in the city center, but if it bothers you, just contact us prior to arrival, and we will suggest more quiet room types. We hope that you will have a chance to stay with us again, since the tracks are being renovated as we speak, and we truly hope to reduce all tram noise! Kind regards, PL team

Most expectations of a good hostel are met. Unlike so many others, free wifi here is a great positive! Kitchen is on the small side and was crammed during peak periods. The other negative was their no refund policy: so never ever pay room rates too many days ahead if travel plans are still fluid.

A good hostel in a great location. The only negative point was the tiny window-slit design in the 12-bedder room. Just don't know how could such a tiny opening be able to ventilate and cool the big room. So the room stayed very warm and stuffy until after midnite when the cooler temperature offered a little relief. So beware of the 12-bedder room!

A really homey place, small and comfy and in a great location with a friendly owner. But could possibly be negated by a sour-face young lady staff. On the first morning, when I pressed the intercom for help as got problem with opening the main door with the key, she was so grouchy and unhelpful. Got into the hostel and got a 20 sec-earful of 'scolding' in Spanish which luckily, I don't understand. The owner said she wasn't angry but she really was! What more with her wild hand gesturings!

It has such a casual and layback atmosphere. Double decked beds built roughly on poles and planks with the lower bed (just a mattress) resting on the floor. Sturdy and not shaky, so no creaking noises. Toilets and lounge area rather dirty. Saw the cleaning lady sweeping the dirty floor in the early morning and using the same broom to sweep the wooden lounging table! The staff were helpful and friendly though. If you joined their dinner, be prepared to eat much later than the stated 9pm time.

If you can sleep through such loud noises and don't mind climbing up some steep steps with your backpack, then this place may be fine.
