  • I stay at Wombats a lot, they are safe, clean, reliable, they give you a free drink, I really like them. However I usually stay at the naschtmarkt and for me it is a little nicer than the lounge. Having said that, this hostel is RIGHT next to Westbahnhoff, perfect! The bathroom was unfortunately filthy in my dorm room, however this was entirely due to my room mates and the staff were kind enough to let me use the guest bathroom (ask for the key). The laundry is not as good as naschtmarkt either

  • We really enjoyed staying here. The staff was great, and the location was excellent. The needs reach had lights and power outlets, and the dorm had its own bathroom. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Overall, this was a good hostel. The staff was excellent! We were able to get into our room early which was very welcome after a night train & staff answered all of our questions expertly in a friendly matter. Room was relatively small, but very clean- seemed a bit pricey for a hostel. With no air conditioning, the windows had to stay open and the street was somewhat noisy at night. The location seemed far from the main attractions, though it was very close to a subway stop.

  • There was a big surprise for us because we got double bed room. We booked two beds in a dormitory room but we got room just for two of us. The room was outstanding. Clean and airy with a toilet. Also the crew of this hostel is very outgoing and friendly. We spent a very good time with them (till 4 am :))

  • Massive hostel. Would recommend if student and/or traveling with friends as there is a bar/lounge area plus free welcoming drinks upon arrival. Breakfast was great and worth the small amount of money required for it. Staff were the best I've ever come across, very accommodating and helpful. Worth the stay.

  • Have stayed in both wombats Nachtmarkedt and the Lounge on different trips, both are clean tidy and have good security as expected with most large chains however they also have a bit of charecter. The Nachmarket is in my view a more atmospheric place, however it is in the markets and is less convenient than The Lounge that lies across the street from the westbahnhof.
