Hostelworld says

Wombats City Hostel Berlin was rated the most popular in Berlin at the 2011 Hoscars and it's no wonder. They're located near Alexanderplatz, Museum Island and Prenzlauer Berg and have 'a warm family-like atmosphere', according to our guests, who also praise the staff, saying they're 'always nice and they have a bunch of tops to give us for everything in the city'. We like their seventh-floor bar, featuring happy hour specials and a rooftop terrace.

Property Description

Located in the most vibrating district of Berlin “Mitte”. Within 10 minutes walk from major transport hub Alexanderplatz. Enjoy a drink on our amazing rooftop terrace and have an incredible view over the whole city. A lot of popular restaurants as well as many fashion stores are just around the corner.

Enjoy and share a new view on Berlin and hostel culture. We are situated in the heart of Berlin, just a few steps from a metro station; the sights and a big nightlife area are within easy walking distance. This place surely gives you new perspectives on travelling - be it from inside or from our top recommendation, the womBar (with a large terrace) on the seventh floor. Enjoy your stay and indulge in a brand-new hostel experience!

We have apartments with double beds in a separate bedroom, with a kitchen/living room with a double-size sofa and private shower/toilet. That's about as extravagant as staying in a hostel will ever get. ;-)

There's five reasons why Wombats City Hostels became a destination by their own right:

Best Cleanliness:
Unfortunately, not something to take for granted in many other hostels, but we do take this seriously: we've won the 'Cleanest Hostel Worldwide' award. Twice.

Most Amenities:
We're centrally located and close to the trains and public transport. We have maximum security with smartcard access for the front door, the floors, the rooms and your locker.

All our rooms come with comfy wooden beds, private shower and toilet facilities plus lockers for your belongings. You'll get a free set of bed linen, a free welcome drink, free Wi-Fi (in the lobby), a guest kitchen for free use and our free self-made city map with all essential information about the going-ons in town.

We offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast, our lively womBAR serves cheap drinks and food, there's internet terminals, laundromats, 24 hours reception service, no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules.

We're the hostel from travellers for travellers:
We have travelled the world ourselves - so we know first-hand what you're doing and what you expect from us. We care for you and we care for your feedback.

Best social atmosphere:
We make sure that you'll feel safe and welcome here. When you've been on the road all day long, seeing sights and walking and walking, it's cool to have a nice scene at the hostel where you can have some beers, talk and make friends. This will make your stay a memorable one! Many a traveller stayed quite a bit longer than primarily intended.

Wombats is not dirt cheap:
You may find an even cheaper place to crash in town, but none where you get more value for your money.

We're looking forward to welcoming you !

Overview

You’ll find Wombats City Hostel Berlin just 10 minutes’ walk from transport hub, Alexanderplatz, or ‘Alex’, as it's called by the locals. Get your hands on a welcome drink and fresh bed linen, even if you’re arriving late, at our 24-hour reception. First stop: our rooftop bar for a sundowner and a chat with fellow travellers. Can’t wait to get exploring? Ask one of our friendly staff members for our self-made city map, with all of Berlin’s best bits. There’s free Wi-Fi in reception too, so you can keep people at home updated on your adventures.

Location

Our hostel puts you right in the heart of the Mitte district, which is known for its buzzy vibe. Update your travel wardrobe at the nearby ultra-cool fashion boutiques, and learn about Berlin’s history at the Brandenburg Gate. Bit of a culture vulture? Take the 20-minute stroll to Museum Island. You can add a bit of local flavour to tonight’s dinner (and impress your new travel friends) with budget-friendly ingredients from the farmers' market at Leopoldplatz.

Rooms and Dorms

We have rooms to suit everyone: from apartments with a separate double bedroom, private kitchen and living room, to female-only and mixed dorms. If you’re travelling with your best mate or in a couple, pick a private double or twin. Every room has an en-suite, so you’re free to leave out your toothbrush and toiletries. Our rooms are spotless – you’re looking at the two-time ‘Cleanest Hostel Award’ winner! Access to the front door, your room and personal luggage locker is all done with a handy key card, keeping things simple.

Extras and activities

Freshen up that backpack at our self-service laundromat (no one likes day-three socks). While you’re waiting for the cycle to finish, help yourself to some free pasta in the guest kitchen. Each morning you can fuel up with an all-you-can-eat-breakfast buffet to keep you going until your lunchtime bratwurst. After a long day, rest your tired legs at our seventh-floor bar. Wallet-friendly happy hour specials await!

    The Wombat was great! Nice staff and the bar was a good place to get a drink and meet people. The rooms were fine, the bathroom had some mold and smelled kind of funky but wasn't too bad.

    A perfect stay. Enthusiastic receptionist, clean comfortable rooms that are not at all cramped up Kirk most of the hostels. Helpful staff. Max and Klaus at the bar were great. And the bar, my god, the terrace bar was such a convenient and such a nice environment.

    The staff at the front desk were really lovely and helpful. The events through out the week are great way to meet other travelers. The rooms were lovely and bathrooms clean. Only slight downside is weak wifi connection even in common area which was a bummer but all in all liked my stay and will be looking to book more from this chain

    Really great hostel, fab rooftop bar that does a fun pub quiz and a great buffet breakfast for only €5! Met some amazing people here. Not that close to main clubs but surrounding bars were good. The room and bathroom were nice and clean, socket by each bed, however no air con so prepare for warm nights if staying in the summer, bring earphones as we had to keep the windows open and the road outside could be very noisy. Overall had a very good stay.

    Great staff, they were all so friendly! The rooftop bar is fab and nice that there is also a bar separated off, shame it shuts at 10pm. The rooms are good but very warm unless near the small fan and the showers could do with a good clean but otherwise a great hostel!

Wombats City Hostel Berlin says

Wombats are party hostels but unlike most other party hostels we have decent rooms and friendly, professional service. We make sure we're not understaffed so we can take care of everyone's small and big concerns. We take cleanliness seriously-everyone expects not to find the waiter's hair in the soup and it should be the same at hostels.
We're strategically located just between the nightlife area and the tourist area, both only a short walk away. The one local sight that I especially recommend is a walk up to the cupola of the parliament building. Entrance is free, the structure is an amazing piece of architecture and the plenary hall is in plain view right under you. They do have a glass ceiling to avoid being spat upon, though…
Here at our hostel we have a roof terrace with a splendid view of Berlin's skyline. All of our hostels are fully wheelchair-accessible and each has a few specially equipped rooms. Klaus, CFO Wombats
