Hostelworld says

We like the very central location of Wombats City Hostel Budapest, just a block from Andrássy utca and five minutes from a metro station serving three lines going to Buda, the airport stop and the three main train stations. This friendly, clean hostel opened in 2012 in a former hotel. It features spacious ensuite rooms with free air conditioning, free welcome drinks for guests and a budget-friendly all-you-can-eat breakfast with yoghurt, fruit and good bread.

Property Description

Wow. Spacious rooms with ensuite bathrooms and air-conditioning? What gives?
Our Wombat’s City Hostel is a former four-star hotel that we have transformed into the hostel of choice in all of Budapest, thanks to our signature style.
What remains is ample space for 26 private rooms and 86 dormitories – as well as generous common areas. You will find yourself in the largest hostel in town, quite possibly the one with the best location as well.

Wombat's City Hostel Budapest is found right in the center on Király Street next to the old Jewish quarter, with the bustling streets, ruin pubs and fancy restaurants this area is famous for all on your doorstep.

If you don't make it that “far” – the Langos place just next door is as good as it is cheap.
The State Opera, Synagogue, Heroes Square, Academy of Music, Chain Bridge, Liszt-Ferenc-Square (with its elegant Cafes and Restaurants) as well as access to the most important shopping streets are easily accessible by foot.
The picturesque old town and the UNESCO Heritage Site-listed Andrassy Boulevard, affectionately known as Budapest's Champs-Élysées are also right around the corner.

By night, our neighborhood turns into a party hotspot. The ruin pub on Kazinscy Utca gives curious travelers a taste of these artsy and unique drinking places.
Only a five minute walk away you will find metro station Deák Ferenc Tér, where three metro lines and several bus- and tram lines connect.
Also accessible from here are the most important train stations Keleti and Nyugati, the bus terminal Nepliget and the airport are all easily.

Included as always - our Wombat's basics:
- bedding
- WiFi
- our own Wombat's city maps
- the womBAR for never-ending parties & WomDollar discount on your drinks (currently limited operations)
- a guest kitchen open to all who want to cater to their own culinary needs
- 24/7 Reception
- safe luggage storage
- rentables (towels, umbrellas, hairdryers, adapters: everything an avid traveler could possibly need)
- coin-operated laundry facilities (washing and crying ... oops, sorry about the typo, of course we mean drying), so you can re-vitalize your clothes ;)

Our famous Tasty Brekkie buffet ensures you have enough energy for your exciting day in Budapest. You can buy your tickets for a small fee at reception.

    Great place to stay while going to Sziget. Large lockers, good social areas and perfect location near public transport and right across from great bars. Beds were okay although my top bunk squeaked a lot. Only issue I had was the room wasn’t cleaned very often, toilet paper ran out a few times and drain got plugged but I spoke to reception and they sorted this all out within an hour so very prompt. Would recommend.

    I had an absolutely lovely stay at Wombat's Hostel! It's very easy to get to know other travelers, especially with the help of their planned pub crawls and other activites. I still had no trouble keeping more to myself if need be and have an early night if I had a busy day the morning after. Although there is partying around I felt like the noise didn't reach the dorms in a disturbing way. Everything was super simple and easy and will definitely be back someday!

    Wombat’s hostel is awesome, there’s honestly nothing to complain about in terms of facilities, cleanliness, location etc. this hostel is one of the best hostels I’ve been to so far! You even have air conditioning and my room had its own spacious bathroom with a shower. The only negative thing that I think has to be mentioned is that the atmosphere is more like one you find in a hotel normally - it’s rather difficult to connect with people here as a solo traveller.

    This hostel is very big and more of a hotel vibe! I was glad to be staying with some friends as it may have been hard to meet people if traveling solo. The rooms were clean and quiet. The air conditioning doesn’t work very well unfortunately, so something to consider if you’re going in the summer! The location is great. Close to bars, restaurants, and easy to get to the train station or airport if you need.

    Can't complain, only stayed here for one night but everything was nice and clean and the staff were super super friendly and helpful!! Perfect location too. Atmosphere wasn't the best tho, I felt safe but the vibe was not very social or family-like as in many smaller hostels. Ideal for friend groups, not solo travelers.

    A fairly standard large international hostel. The staff were really friendly, the facilities were good (although there were very little forks in the kitchen).

Wombat's City Hostel Budapest says

I think what's really unique about us is that this was a pretty good hotel before we upgraded it to a Wombats , so it comes with some amenities you don´t typically find in a hostel, like really big rooms, a/c, nice en suite facilities (even with hairdryers) and amply dimensioned common areas. It´s the biggest hostel in town, so guaranteed never boring. And the house is run by a really, really enthusiastic team.
We're one block from Andrassy utca (Budapest's version of the Champs Elysse), the main cathedral is just around the corner and the history city centre is a ten-minute walk away. Walk in the other direction and you're in the middle of the most lively nightlife area. Personally I recommend hitting Corvintetö, a superb rooftop club not far away. The langos shop next to the entrance is ridiculously good (and cheap), too.
Most of our guests are twentysomethings. Budapest offers excellent nightlife and is very cheap, so it attracts a lot of people who intend to indulge in it.
