Perfect all around except for two major offences: 1) No lockers, or anywhere safe to put your valuables, anywhere. You have to either keep your stuff with you or out it under the bed and hope no one steals it. 2) €8 for breakfast (which is usually free, or else a few euros) is a joke.
Overall a really good, welcoming, and comfortable place, but attracts too many bros for my taste. Would return, though.
Very no frills: don't expect free wifi, lockers, good breakfast, etc etc.
Top notch all across the board. Wish more hostels were like this.
The lock on my dorm door didn't work (you could open it even if the lock was set) and the latch on the locker was too small to put a padlock on. They also didn't have all the keys to my room - i think some were missing. You have to buzz to get into the front door, but they don't check who it is, so anyone could have come into my dorm at any time. The place was quite messy, the wifi was very weak, breakfast wasn't great. Great location and price, but you get what you pay for. Would NOT return.
Great all around, would stay here again!
Not great, certainly not for the money. The combined shower toilets are gross, the "breakfast" is a joke, the bed comforters are extremely hot, no lights or outlets near beds, some rooms are without windows, service wasn't always so good, you have to pay for wifi in your room (total bs), and the TV is always on in the reception, which is really annoying. There's nothing especially welcoming here, and I probably wouldn't come back if I had a choice.
It felt kind of criminal how much I got for how much I way paying. The staff went above and beyond in being helpful and upgrading me to a private room just because it was available. Seems like a hostel where the people who run it are the ones who work there, and put themselves into it, which shows. Would recommend. Also, their shower (while it could using cleaning) is insane.
Felt pretty insecure - anyone can walk into the open front door and into your dorm and do whatever they want. That said, the staff were quite welcoming and helpful when I arrived at 2:30AM. It did the job.

With wombat you know what you're getting, which is generally preferable. The breakfast, which is more expensive than the Berlin and Vienna wombats, isn't worth it given what you can get in the city for not much. As always with wombat, the juvenile frat boy posters and feigned party vibe is insufferable, and they'd do well to get rid of all of it altogether as soon as possible, since it's extremely off putting
You know what you're getting with wombat, and that's generally quite good. Not a fan of the college freshman frat boy posters and feigned party atmosphere (thank god it's not as much a party hostel as it pretends to be).
This hostel was all around quite good. Would recommend it.
I booked this hostel on short notice after my other accommodation plans fell through, so this was the best option available. Anyways, it got the job done, but for what I paid I was underwhelmed and ultimately would NOT stay here again. PROS: Clean, very nice area, staff were mostly kind and helpful, good (free) breakfast, CONS (which outweigh the pros): Expensive, out of the way, doesn't have in-room lockers, showers are timed, the guy that rented me a bike there wasn't nice, etc.
