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.

*Please note: due to the pandemic, our bar remains closed and we aren't serving breakfast at the moment.

Property Description

Have all your friends been telling you their stories about Budapest? Are you interested in European history, but ready to party, too?

You should definitely come to the Hungarian capital, stay at Wombat's The City Hostel Budapest, and check out all we have to offer here. Goulash, paprika, pálinka…and these are just the well-known specialities. We will help you be more than a tourist by discovering the hidden parts of this amazing city.

We are located in the heart of downtown, surrounded by historical sites like St Stephen’s Basilica, the Grand Synagogue, and the beautiful World Heritage Site, Andrássy Avenue. The area was just renovated and recently became THE party area of the city.

Wombat's The City Hostel is proud to be one of the most experienced hostel chains (over 20 years of hostel expertise!) with a history of award-winning properties all over Europe: Budapest, London, Munich, and Vienna.

Wombat’s The City Hostel offers safe, clean, quality accommodation in either (1) a spacious dorm room with an ensuite bathroom and individual lockers for personal belongings or (2) a private room with two twin beds/one queen bed and private bathroom.

Cleanliness is something not to be taken for granted, and we take it very seriously. We’ve even won the 'cleanest hostel worldwide' award multiple times.

By travellers for travellers

We have travelled the world ourselves - so we know firsthand what travelling is like and what you expect from us. We care about you and listen to your feedback.

We provide an inviting, safe atmosphere for you to retreat to at the end of the day. After you've been on the road, seeing sights and walking until your feet ache, it's good to know you've got a comfy place waiting for you at our hostel, where you can chill, drink beer, exchange travel wisdom, and make new friends.

Among all these extras and details, there’s one thing that makes Wombat’s truly stand out. It’s the hostel atmosphere that we all love: travellers sharing not only a space, but an experience.

Your stay is bound to be a memorable one!

    Really nice hostel but not great atmosphere at the moment. Despite that, nothing else negative to say except maybe an update on kitchen equipment is needed. Staff were really lovely, felt so safe and was perfectly clean.

    Io e la mia amica abbiamo alloggiato in questo ostello dal 5 al 7 ottobre. Posizione comodissima nel centro città. A circa 200 metri si trova la metropolitana, i tram e i bus per l’aereoporto. Staff cordiale, simpatico e disponibile. Camera pulita. Unica pecca.. nel bagno c’era un odore che ricordava un po’ la piscina.. e i letti un po’ scomodi.. Per il resto tutto okay!

    Milk stolen from refrigerator the first night. Bed lamp didn’t work, and still not fixed upon departure after 3-night stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Excellent location in Pest. Few hostelers during my visit in October 2021. I will stay here again during my next visit to Budapest.

    Can’t beat the location just a short walk from the city center and transit. Take 100E bus from airport. Kitchen was disgusting and badly needed to be cleaned. Rest of hostel was clean though. The hostel bar was either closed or reserved for a youth exchange group the entire time I was there. Some of the common area was reserved for them as well. Common area and hostel bar should be for all guests In my opinion. Secure facility with key card swipe to get on your floor, room, and locker.

    It has everything you'd expect, but feels impersonal because it's really huge. The room I stayed in didn't have soap in the bathroom for hand washing and another person staying there said she had to get more TP from the front desk. It's kind of just what you would expect from this size hostel. The breakfast is not free.

    Great hostel in a beautiful location, but there was never anyone at the front desk. Besides being checked in the very first day upon arrival, I have never seen anyone at the front desk again - no one to assist with recommendations on where to visit, no one informed us of any activities the hostel puts together for their guests. Even coming in and out of the hostel from our adventures travelling the city (which is absolutely beautiful), no one was ever at the desk or around the hostel.

    I booked 6 bed dorm for 3 nights. Bar was closed. Kitchen utensils were greasy and dirty. Blanket cover was torn. Looked like I went there at the wrong time. Staff was friendly.

Wombat's The 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.
