“Great Hostel, fantastic value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

Wombats was the perfect hostel for our stay in Berlin. The room was clean, as was the ensuite bathroom. We booked a triple which ended up being a room with 4 bunk beds and plenty of space. There were also lockers in the room (which are controlled by your key card).
The location of the hostel is fantastic, just a short walk to Alexander Platz and there is the U-Bahn just around the corner so its easy to get to all the major attractions.
The Hostel has free wifi which you can only access on the ground floor or at the bar upstairs, they also have a number of computers which you can access the internet on for a small fee. The upstairs bar (WomBar) has relatively cheap drinks and a good happy hour twice a night, drinks are only 1 Euro! The bar has a pool table, fussball table and rooftop terrace.
Breakfast isn't included in the cost but is available for about 3-4 Euro and is served in the restaurant downstairs. It runs til 11am each morning and was a pretty typical continental breakfast (bread, cheese, cold meat, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, coffee, tea, juice etc).
If your looking for somewhere good to eat, literally across the road is a small restaurant called "Good Morning Vietnam", this place serves awesome, low cost food, we went there on a number of occasions and were never disappointed.
Wombats was really good value for money, definitely recommended.

Wombats was an awesome hostel! We checked into a girls only room and it was spotlessly clean with comfy bedding.

The roof top bar was awesome with beautiful views and drink offers!

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The only suggestion I would have would be to organise events for the guests? Apart from that it was spot on!

Wombat City Hostel is a great place to stay in Berlin (especially in winter when they drop their rates). The breakfast (3.70 euro) was nice, the were clean, the showers were hot and it was a wonderful place to meet other travellers. There is a metro station 100m down the road and a well stocked supermarket nearby and if that doesn't sell it to you they have 1 euro beers during happy hour(s).

Pros:
Good location and great staff. Exceptionally clean. Kitchen helped me save alot of money while i was there because there is a supermarket 2 minutes walking distance. I was a solo traveler and I met quite a few new people there. Linen supplied. All dorms had bathrooms.

Cons:
beds very hard and uncomfortable, maybe slightly overpriced?

Would I stay there again on a budget? yes
Would I recommend a friend to stay there? undecided as yet.

Wombats is great. It is very clean and you have a locker in your dorm. It is so close to Alexanderplatz and the surrounding area has great food and shops.
There is a great laundry in the hostel and a very good buffet €3.70 breakfast til 11am. The bar is lots of fun too and very cheap.
Only downside was a slight sewage problem that made the lifts and reception smell horrible. But I would go back!!
